When the Cincinnati Bengals selected TCU’s Andy Dalton in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft, it was a clear indication that the Carson Palmer era was over for them. Palmer demanded a trade but Bengals President Mike Brown refused to reward his franchise QB by sending him elsewhere...
As you know, the Oakland Raiders went all in on 2011 this week when they traded away two unreasonably high draft picks to acquire Bengals QB Carson Palmer, who is STARTING this Sunday, which is downright nutty. And you know it's a questionable trade when people all over are declaring that Mike Brown outsmarted you. No matter. Raiders head coach and apparent new CEO of All...
