Carson Palmer's trade to the Oakland Raiders has amped up the national attention on this crucial divisional game, one that Kansas City almost can't afford to lose if they're to repeat as AFC West Champions. But Palmer, acquired just this week, won't start against KC - backup Kyle Boller will. It's a move Silver And Black Pride endorses because of the acclimation time Palmer hasn't received:
I can speculate all day long on who I think the Raiders' QB should be this Sunday, but in the end I am completely will to concede to Hue's judgement. There is no way for anyone, but the people on this team to know how far along Palmer is into his progression. And it is certainly understandable after three days that he would not have a firm enough grip of the playbook or chemistry with his receivers to start yet.
