Not currently trusting of Kyle Boller or Terrelle Pryor, the Oakland Raiders acquired former Cincinnati signal caller
to take over for the injured Jason Campbell. Palmer wasn't exactly an
player prior to his "retirement" from the Bengals – the freakin' 4-2 Bengals might we add! It doesn't look like Palmer will start this weekend (though
) against the Chiefs which means Boller could be in charge of handing off the Darren McFadden 62 times. Oakland has a bye week following Sunday's game, which makes November 6 vs. Denver a more logical target date for Palmer’s debut.
"That’s my job as the head coach and leader of this team. What I set out to do was find the person I would be comfortable with coming in here, helping me lead this football team as we continue to move forward and give us the best opportunity to win. And I was very lucky to kind of reach back in my past and grab somebody I’m very familiar with being Carson. But in order to do that it took a lot of team work, it took a lot of cooperation from the Bengals."
