Palmer and Boller

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

We already know Carson Palmer is absolutely not going to start today in the Oakland-Kansas City game, but that doesn’t mean Kyle Boller should get comfortable in his No. 1 spot.

Instead, CBS Sports' Dan Fouts is reporting that Palmer will be the starting quarterback in two weeks vs. the Broncos. That will give him part of this week, next week’s bye and all of the next week after that in practice to get ready to start.

Although coach Hue Jackson claimed Palmer is throwing better than ever, saying, “You’ve got to be kidding me. He’s throwing the ball like you wouldn’t believe. Trust me, if he’s out there -- I mean, we wouldn’t have signed him if he couldn’t throw.”

He could even be ready to play today. That’s the word from Fox Sport’s Jay Glazer, who reported on Fox NFL Sunday that Jackson plans to dress Palmer and to use him in the game if possible. Jackson also has a package in place for Terrelle Pryor, if the game dictates that.

Just like I said in here the other night Pamer wasn't going to start this week and it would take him at least  2-3 weeks to start ....well I guess I was right and there's no way the raiders go to any kind of playoffs this year!!!

Kyle Boller is easily one of the worst quarterbacks I have ever seen. He may be the worst. Bum.

He's probably out of shape and a bit rusty.

Hey Pryor, go to the locker room and get Palmer's cup.
