Halftime: Broncos 13, Raiders 7

Carson Palmer completed 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards, including a beautifully conceived 6-yard left screen for the touchdown, as the Raiders got within 13-7 with 1:59 left in the half.

The drive took 6:33 off the clock and was the longest of the season for the Raiders.

The Raiders took advantage of a spectacular diving interception by Phillip Adams in the end zone when the Broncos appeared poised to go up 20-0.

Denver drove to the Oakland 49 before a Mike Mitchell sack helped force a Broncos punt with 20 seconds left in the half.

    Palmer is way better than you fools give him credit for. He makes a lot of good throws that you guys just take for granted.

    Not just the two bombs to Streater in the last two games, but a bunch of 20 yard ins and outs.

    Everyone assumes Palmer is just a garbage time stats compiler. But it’s not true. Palmer has 148 passing in the first half tonight. He’s averaging 138 in the first halves of games this season and 156 in the second half. Really not a huge disparity.
    ————

    He also makes the game deciding int a lot
    Atl,Tampa, Cle,
    That’s where my frustration comes in. He makes a terrible choice at worst time.

    ——-

    Way to conveniently ignore how many of those INTs were a result of the WR’s running the wrong routes.

    DLess is the laziest route runner Ive seen in a while. Im starting to hate the kid.

    ————
    He maybe, but Palmer should know that and take that into consideration when throwing the timing route. Sucks but true. Like I said earlier I would be happy to be wrong about Carson.
    He reminds me of the year we had Jeff George. Look at his stats. You would have thought we were 12-4 not 4-12. The following year George is hurt and we run through scabs and go 8-8 in grudens first year. George gone the next year for Gannon and we are still trying to get back to those days. We need a leader under center and Palmers not it.

    ———

    Agreed, Palmer isnt the leader we need.

    But dont hold it against him that he’s not “taking DLess’ lazyness into consideration”.

    —————
    Manning would

    ——–

    How?

    How the fvck is a QB supposed to compensate for a lazy WR.

    What Manning would do is ring his neck on the sideline and get the guy benched if he didnt shape up. Thats where your leadership point is valid.

    But as for what Palmer is supposed to do on that out route, if DLess runs a crisp route, he is able to make that catch.
    ———-
    Manning gets that guy off the field. But he finds other guys to throw it to. No one is perfect but Palmer has a history of nits at the wrong time. Can’t all be on the WRs.
    That being said he just ended the game with a fumble. Something new. This f……king sucks. Another week of being ridiculed.

    I dont think we are that far apart in our opinions.

    Im just letting you know that those big INTs you were speaking of were largely the fault of the WRs.

    I’ll let him blame the WRs the first couple times. But once it’s become the pattern it has, then it becomes his fault for indeed not doing what you suggest, kick the bums off the field.

  • Chris in NY

    Palmer can still be a good QB. The lack of mobility is a concern, but the Mannings, Brady and Kurt Warner have been able to succeed in recent years.

    Need to rebuild the o-line. Keep Veldheer and Wiz and find three new starters. Big Reg should’ve kept Satele.

    I have a hard time believing that the people who blame coaches have never played athletics at any level. It’s the easy way out when you don’t know.

    ——————————-

    Are you saying that guys who blame coaches have or haven’t played? Your statement taken literally would suggest that guys who played would say that, but I’m guessing maybe you meant to say the opposite.
    ———–
    Never = ever

    It was cryptic.

    I have a feeling people blaming coaches have never played any athletics at any level. Our players are jokes. 2nd and 3stringers on any other team. We have a hand full of starters.

    Well the frst half went ok. Tarver picked it up with some nice calls on D, Carson is gonna half to play pick free in the second half that first int was a killer as we could be in the lead. They started gashing us in the run game so DA and Tarver must make adj, you know Manning will.

    ——

    Picked it up? Tarver had it right from the start. If Branch was a player and Wheeler doesnt get called for holding (within 5 yds of the line of scrimmage) then we start the game off with a pick 6.

    Tarver came out with a good plan. We didnt execute. We then got knocked back on our heels. And then we settled down and had a solid 2nd quarter.

    Same could be said for Knapp but Im not even going to bother wasting my time explaining.

    I hate Palmer. I’m done w him. He has heart. He has class. But he’s schlep rock. Nothing has ever gone right for him. Nothing ever will. Whether its poor decisions or bad luck or coaching, he has never won an never will. Makes critical mistakes at critical times. Can’t win like that. Yea. Goodson started it. But Palmer finished it. As usual.
