Let’s recap: The Oakland Raiders traded a first round pick and a second round pick (which could turn into a first round pick) for Carson Palmer. The same Carson Palmer who looked washed up with the Cincinnati Bengals last season.
And it didn’t look good in Oakland.
After replacing Kyle Boller, who threw three interceptions of the first half of the Raiders 28-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Palmer immediately threw three interceptions of his own.
“It was just an awful feeling walking off the field to be beat like that in the fashion that we were beat,” said Palmer. “We need to regroup.”
Palmer had been working out on his own in Southern California and did not get the start Sunday. But he was put in regardless.
He finished 8 for 21 for 116 yards with the three interceptions.
