Long Shot Happened: Carson Palmer to the Raiders

By Ernie Padaon

The Cincinnati Bengals finally budged and traded QB Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders. They paid a pretty hefty price to get him though. A couple of 1st rounders!!!!

Still, the Raiders are like a roach that just won’t DIE!

They are trying to win today and they don’t care what happens tomorrow. Winning the division over them will be that much more sweeter. Let’s see if Carson Palmer has anything left or is even ready for this season.

The Raiders will be a HUGE challenge in the division. We face them in a few weeks on a Thursday night game and the Q will be rocking. You know all the Raiders fans will be crawling out of their holes to see this clash. Having the Raiders good again is fun and irritating.
