The Oakland Raiders are very optimistic that quarterback Carson Palmer can resurrect his career this season and get back to his 2005 form. The problem is that so far Palmer has looked horrific in the preseason.
Just read Rotoworld.com’s breakdown of how Palmer has fared this preseason.
“Carson Palmer completed 17-of-26 passes for 181 yards and two interceptions in the Raiders’ third preseason game.
“Palmer threw a head-scratching interception to DE Willie Young on a pass intended for Taiwan Jones, and was picked off by Stephen Tulloch on consecutive first-half drives. The turnovers are particularly notable considering CBs Chris Houston (ankle) and Bill Bentley (shoulder) were sidelined. Palmer has struggled with his accuracy and decision-making this preseason, and could enter Week 1 without top targets Denarius Moore (hamstring) and Jacoby Ford (foot sprain). Through three preseason games, Palmer is 33-of-56 (58.9 percent) for 321 yards (5.73 YPA), no touchdowns, and four interceptions,” wrote Rotoworld.com.
The Raiders have a lot of talent on offense, the biggest problem might be the guy distributing the ball.
