Because they’re in playoff contention, the Raiders decided to acquire Carson Palmer in a trade. The Raiders are hoping Carson Palmer will [...]

It’s always entertaining (to me) to repeatedly realize that the people I covered in Los Angeles and Philadelphia years ago always seem to come back into the news, most frequently right here in the Bay Area. It happened again last week. It always happens. So, after a respectable pause, I got...
Darrius Heyward-Bey was among a handful of wide receivers who joined the quarterback for additional throwing following Palmer's first practice with Oakland this week.
Carson Palmer played like a quarterback who was sitting on his couch less than a week ago thinking he was retired.
The problem for the Oakland Raiders was that starter Kyle Boller didn't look any better.

Carson Palmer said he was excited and uncomfortable at the same time Sunday in what turned out to be his ugly debut in a Raiders uniform.

Kyle Boller dropped back on Oakland's first series and threw a pass to the left sideline that Kendrick Lewis intercepted and returned for a touchdown. Carson Palmer did the same to the right side to Brandon Flowers in the fourth quarter.
Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said he's excited with how well his football team is playing this season. It will be interesting to see if those emotions will be swayed now that quarterback Jason Campbell is expected to miss significant time with a broken collarbone.
