Right up their with the super bowl teams with Sharpe on them. Perhaps not as many over the middle catches but almost the same numbers.

The Bengals claimed WR Dane Sanzenbacher off waivers from the Bears and placed rookie CB Dre Kirkpatrick on injured reserve.

Smart move....no better time than right now for Oakland to get a chance to evaluate Terrelle Pryor in a regular season game.

Palmer has actually had a decent year, given the circumstances. I imagine this is as much about showing the fans how crappy Pryor is so when they cut him in the offseason they aren't all up in arms and realize he's just another wasted pick by Al Davis.

Carson Palmer is out with cracked ribs and a bruised lung.

Matt Leinart came in and stunk last week.

The staff can game plan for a full week around Terrelle Pryor and then see what he can do.

I bet he plays a little better than most people think he will.

Pryor will make some mistakes I'm sure, but I bet he makes a few big plays as well.

From what I've been hearing, Oakland might void the final 2 years of Palmer's contract and look in another direction next season.

All I saw out of Pryor when they played him a couple series vs kFc was dinking and dunking. I don't see this guy as a legit NFL QB. I wonder if Oakland doesn't keep Palmer one more year and try to find 2 more QB's.

I'll take that. I don't want his ass in Dallas and building that team up the right way.

Payton is a top notch, elite coach.

It is not the HC hat builds the team in DAL. It is Jerry Jones and his EGO that builds and directs his team.

Hard to judge a QB on his first few series playing in the NFL.

Not saying Terrelle Pryor is going to be awesome or anything, but that is a fairly small sample size.

Carson Palmer hasn't been the same QB between when Kimo von Oelhoffen of the Steelers blew up his knee in the 2005 playoffs and then the 2008 elbow injury that sidelined him for most of the season.

Palmer can still sling it around the yard, but since the injuries he's gotten happy feet any time there is any activity around his legs. He turns the ball over a lot. His arrival in Oakland certainly hasn't resulted in a lot of wins.

Mike Brown should have been arrested for robbery for getting all the draft picks he did out of that deal.

Back to Terrelle Pryor....at least he is the one QB on their roster that has the ability to pull the ball down and make a play on his own with his feet. If the other offensive players are on the same page as Pryor he might be able to parlay that athletic ability into some big plays.

Carson hasn't had much of a team around him.

The NFL is a QB driven league....if Carson were anything above average these days, Oakland would be better than 4-11.

Everyone said Indianapolis had no talent last season when they were 2-14.

The season before they were 10-6 with Peyton Manning slinging the rock and this season they are 10-5 with Andrew Luck.

Carson Palmer has over 4,000 yards passing this season, but he's been a stat accumulator in Oakland....a lot of yardage in the 4th quarters of blowout losses.

Palmer has turned the ball over 19 times (14 INTs and 5 lost fumbles) this season.

He's due a base salary of $13 million next season.

Since he's been in Oakland he has 35 TD passes and 30 INTs with 6 lost fumbles....more turnovers than TDs is never a good thing.

I will admit that Oakland is thin talent wise, but a good to great QB raises the level of play of those around him.

Wonder what the Broncos record would if we has an average QB playing instead of Manning?

Having Manning this year after all the disappointing seasons preceding his arrival has really brought home the value of an elite QB. Of course it has always been the most important position but in todays game I don't think you can win a championship without one.

I don't think there will be a Trent Dilfer type QB winning the super bowl ever again.

He was below average. As a running QB he was above average. Depends on how you look at it, I guess.
