I don`t need to break down the teams or players, we all know whats going on today. It`s time we retreat from the circus and be added to the list of teams, that can play football.
This development isn`t gonna stop the world from turning, the guy you support has won 8 games for Oakland in 2 years. I`m gonna take a chance and suggest we can do better than that with a rookie.
The last 4 years I can remember 3 qb comeback wins, Gradkowski to Murphy vs. the Steelers, Russell to Shilens vs. Denver , Palmer with 1 comeback win vs. the Steelers. We can do much better.
The current qb`s, Luck, Wilson and Rg3, one of them if not 2 has a good chance to start 2 playoff games this season as a rookie, that would be more starts than Palmers entire playoff career, Oakland can`t afford to be playing anymore games.
The days of paying Carson Palmer 3,000,000.00 per win are over, lets get excited about the new direction. I`m hoping the new direction isn`t the same as the old direction Vick etc.

Woohoo!!! Salary Cap space
Only reason CP3's not coming back is health reasons.
And don't waste too much time.
Ain't no Andrew Lucks out there this year.
Your better off upgrading the coaching staff and shoring up the trenches.

We`ve had more success with journeymen ? How many journeymen have the Raiders had over the last 30 years? You will find the average of your illusion isn`t acceptable, Oakland has been peddling journeymen for several years now, it`s not working if you haven`t noticed.
Another laughable example is Rich Gannon, he didn`t lead anyone to gold. I don`t see any World Championship banners flying over the stadium. If Gannon acheived so much then Donovan McNabb must be a god, playing in 5 NFC championship games and matching Gannon with a Super Bowl loss, it`s time for everyone to chase new dreams and store all the excuses forever sealed in the attic.
Only decent quarterback out there that has been tested and is succeding in the league is a very disgruntled Alex Smith. Crapernkick isn't going to take the Niners anywhere. Running QB's don't win championships.
No one care about your obnoxious months long obsession with a quarterback who no one has heard of from a mediocre program. The Raiders would do well to tap the deep defensive well of talent in the draft and try and come up with a replacement, any relacement for that abortion that is Khalif Barnes.
