The NFL trade deadline is usally a real stinker. Not this year -- the Raiders made an uber-aggressive play to pick up Carson Palmer from the Bengals and try to make a postseason run.

In exchange, they gave up a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional 2013 first-round pick (we have since learned it's a first-round pick only if the Raiders win at least one playoff game) to get a quarterback not named Kyle Boller.

Below, we break down what the Bengals got in return, if Oakland overpaid, who won and lost the deal, if Palmer makes the Raiders Super Bowl contenders, whether Al Davis would have approved of the deal, what this means for the Broncos and Kyle Orton.

Then Michael David Smith joins the show to break down Week 6 of NFL action and talk about the Lions first loss of the year.

Who gives a damn what Al Davis would have thought.  The jerk is dead.
