What’s up sports fans? Well what can you say about last Sunday? I’m actually shocked at what I saw. The Raiders had quarterback issues. They just lost Jason Campbell to an injury in his collarbone, and Kyle Boller had to assume the position at starting quarterback. So they had to come up with something. So while the week is going by they find a solution, Carson Palmer. You remember Carson Palmer. The long time Bengal that when he came into the league caused all kind of problems for the Raiders. Well now he’s giving up his Bengal stripes to don the silver and black. Now if your a Raider fan your thinking at first, great acquisition. Carsons a veteran plus he knows the AFC, this is a win win for the Raider Nation. But after the game against the Kansas Chiefs your thinking activating Carson Palmer that soon probably wasn’t a good idea for Hue Jackson’s offense. It seemed in this game it didn’t matter who was quarterbacking for the silver & black, they just weren’t going to put up any good statistics.

Kyle Boller came in like he should, he is the starter. But against KC he sputtered. Kansas City defense intercepted him three times. At this point Hue Jackson might have thought, “Kyle can’t get it done, let’s put Carson in and see what happens.” Actually, he didn’t want to see what happened. The Chiefs defense took one look at Carson and gave him the same dose of medicine. Another 3 interceptions. I’m a Niner fan, but I don’t like to watch the Raider Nation take a loss like last Sunday. For Carson Palmer it wasn’t the beginning he had envisioned while representing the Raider Nation.  “It was just an awful feeling walking off the field to be beat like that in the fashion that we were beat,” Palmer said. “We need to regroup.” Regroup! Carson you haven’t been a Raider long enough to say that. Palmer needs to get more time working with the offense. Obviously Hue wanted to have Palmer go out and save the day for Raiders in this game. It didn’t work out primarily because Palmer doesn’t know the offense that well yet.

“I was excited to be playing again, but there was such a limited playbook with little to no experience with the receivers, it definitely is an uncomfortable position to be in,” Palmer said.  Boller’s interceptions didn’t help either what’s worst is the Raiders fumbled the ball two times and were penalized 14 times for 120 yards. With Jackson not being sure who he was going to start on Sunday, it allowed Kansas City’s defense to exploit Oakland’s offense.   “We knew that they had a quarterback controversy,” Lewis said. “We studied film and studied their routes and that they were going to give him a limited playbook. When we had the opportunity to make big plays and capitalize, that’s what we did. And we did a good job with it.” And according to the Kansas City defensive back Lewis and the Chiefs  were just lying in wait for the Raiders. What was also interesting is that based on statistics, the game was evenly matched. The Chiefs led on first downs with 22 to the Raiders 19. The Raiders led in total yards with 322 to the Chiefs 300.

Time of possession was close with the Raiders at 26:23  giving up about 7 minutes of time to the Chiefs at 33:37.  Matt Cassel was intercepted twice. The Raiders even had more rushing yards than the Chiefs with 139 for the Chiefs and the Raiders with 157 yards on the ground. So if the game was even why did the Raiders loose the game? Because they had two quarterbacks who gave up a total of 6 interceptions, and they couldn’t rally back when they were down. Kyle Boller threw a pass to Jacoby Ford that Kendall Lewis saw as a gift and he ran it back 59 yards for a pick six the beginning of a nightmare in the day time. “I’m just extremely frustrated,” Boller said. “I had an opportunity to go there. It just didn’t go as planned. Definitely not my best outing. I feel bad for my teammates. I feel like I let my teammates down. There’s not much to say. The play speaks for itself.” I’m sure Hue Jackson will be sure who’s starting on Nov. 6 vs. Denver. But after Sunday the Raiders are ready for their Bye week. Think the Raiders can rebound against Denver or is the game against Kansas City sign of a chink in the Raiders armor? Tell me what you think. Remember folks it’s ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM.
