Boller opens at QB vs. Chiefs

The mystery is over.

Kyle Boller took the field as the starting quarterback Sunday at O.Co Coliseum against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Results of Boller’s first drive were disastrous as Kendrick Lewis intercepted a Boller pass and returned it 59 yards for a TD.

Carson Palmer, acquired for a first-round draft pick and a first- or second-round pick Tuesday from the Cincinnati Bengals, will be the backup and it remains to be seen if there is a plan to get him some playing time.

The Raiders also have Terrelle Pryor active, and he has already been in to take a snap in spread formation, which is suited to his skills as a runner-passer.

Coach Hue Jackson declined to name a starter during the week, waiting to see if Palmer would be ready after being off for the last six weeks and having not played in a game since last year’s regular-season finale.

With the bye week coming up, the Raiders have until Nov. 6 to get Palmer ready to face the Denver Broncos at O.co Coliseum.

ESPN reported earlier Sunday the decision would be up to Palmer whether he starts, which runs contrary to Jackson’s position Friday that he would make the call.

    Tebow is still a bum he just got some nice plays from his team and a huge choke from Miami. Nice win for the guy tho, maybe he can build on it

  • J Hill

    I can’r believe we got Curry for a 7th and 5th.

  • RaidingTexas

    The Tebow fans will never shut the fk up now.

    I’m not a big fan of Hue’s trickery, but I thought that was a good play they ran with Pryor.

    Rookie mistake, won’t happen again.

    I thought it was a great call, very creative… next time it will work.

  • J Hill

    McFadden to the locker room????

    Ouch!

    Palmer? Now?

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    That’s why you need two running backs in this league

  • RaidingTexas

    Boller is awful.

  • JB

    Boller is a walking disaster. More completions to Chiefs than us. SAD

    f’n boller

    what a turd

  • JT

    McFadden hurt, Boller the QB…

    Boller hits a second INT…

    Here comes Palmer

  • Mum-O-killowe

    Don’t put Palmer in this trashy game. Not worth it.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Yup, get Boller on out of here.

    I would rather see Pryor out there running bootlegs etc

  • Just Fire Baby

    LOL….at the people saying we would hang 40 on them.

    I looked it up.

    Boller never scored 40 in the Pro’s, and only once in 31 games in college.

    No stats on High School though.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    They have to get Boller out of there.

  • JB

    All the breaks going to KC so far

  • JB

    Curry blew that one up – great job.

    Put in Pryor.

    My feed is lagging, haven’t even seen the INT yet.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Boller 0-10 in his last 10 starts.

    Uh….that is more than enough of a sample size.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Looks like the Raiders have rid themselves of the “Overpursuit Virus”

  • severeraiderz

    Its ok guys, this ofense didn’t need JC. We are built on the run and the QB doesn’t matter. There’s not a big dropoff after JC etc etc etc

  • http://www.wasRaider75.com wasbanned

    chiefs moving the ball… :(

  • severeraiderz

    Finally DVD gets to cover someone almost as thin as him

  • JB

    Routt good coverage

  • http://www.wasRaider75.com wasbanned

    Raiders WILL win this f’n game!

    they will find a way!

  • Mum-O-killowe

    Curry playing well

  • PlunkforHOF

    I am sick..

  • Just Fire Baby

    McCluster = most overrated player in the NFL

    He averages 25 yards from scrimmage per gaem and is 40th in the league in kickoff return average

  • J Hill

    All you blitz fans are seeing what happens when you don’t get there.

  • JB

    14 down, time for Palmer. No more BS with Boller.

  • lefty12

    We are getting outplayed in all phases.

  • severeraiderz

    I refuse to watch ESPN for the rest of the week, they are going to vomit all over themselves giving Tebow props, its going to be worse than when Brett Favre did something good

  • RaidingTexas

    There are too many bad players on this defense. It really sucks that we won’t be able to address that in the draft next year.

  • J Hill

    We are getting outplayed in all phases.

    That’s what usually happens when you turn the ball over.

    Uncle Mo is no joke.

  • JB

    We need a healthy DMac. He may be “nicked up”. Went into locker room – not a good sign.

  • olinesux

    hue is being stubborn trying to put his stamp on this team…

    defintely a trashy game. But a huge win for KC, they come right back in the division. This may be a lost oportunity for raiders, having SD loose.

    Gut check time for Hue.

    No McFadden, Boller stinks…

    What to do.

  • Pretty Rick

    Uh oh!!! I don’t like what I’m seeing.

  • YoungAmerican

    Routt has been beaten for a TD four times this season. Nnamdi he ain’t.

  • mcfadden20.

    this is why we went out and got palmer and huff whiffed twice on 3rd downs

  • severeraiderz

    Know whats the worse part of being down by 2 touchdowns? it forces us to throw more

  • Just Fire Baby

    3rd and 1 nonsense started the downfall of all this.

    We got them 3 and out, and had the ball inside the 50.

    Hue thought gettting Pryor a snap on a sneak was more important apparently.

    ==================================================
    YOu can’t just let the QB stand back there and pick you apart either.

    Gotta blitz. We’ve seen what happens when they just rely on 4-man pressure

  • aig-raiders

    Been saying all week long Routt has been lucky not turning his face around playing the ball and he got his aZZ handed to him today. Decent QB’s put the ball up there and let their WR play over his head. Dude is OVERRRATED!!!!!
