National Sports Media Absent-Minded

19 Oct

With the recent news reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN that Carson Palmer will start this Sunday for the Raiders just one day after being acquired from the Bengals, many of the national media are jumping at the chance to say the Late Al Davis‘ organization is making yet another mistake.  Nevermind that Hue Jackson, the Raiders Head Coach has said he’ll make the decision Friday.

I’m guessing they’ve all just forgotten their last story on the Raiders.  The one where they traded one and perhaps two 1st round picks for Palmer.  That’s a hefty price.  You not only expect Palmer to play great, he has to play great.  So, what if Boller plays this weekend and he tosses four touchdowns, zero picks, and leads the team to a great win. How does that work out for the Raiders?

It’s simple.  Carson Palmer has to play this weekend and the rest of the season. Win or Lose. It’s a must.
