    “Get real. Not one fan was lost by our acquiring Flynn, and you know it.”

    Its not about one single move you really need to expand your brain or your thought process to allow for open minded thinking.

    This is about the fire sale the tarps and eventually the moving trucks…so sit back and drink some more Jim Jones koolaid while I fight to keep our team here!

    ==========================================

    Please explain exactly how you are planning to “fight to keep our team here.”

    Remember that posting angrily in a Raiders blog does not count. What substantive steps are you, personally, taking?

    Being reported Palmer to AZ for swap of third round picks next year and an additional pick, maybe fourth round.

    +++++++++++

    So for them to take Palmer, we have to move back in the 3rd round? WTF!

  • pcraider

    5th round pick. In this years draft. Conditional in next years.

    Right on Reg!

    Here guys. Here’s a place to go so you can feel at home with the rest of your fellow Bengal fans and beyotch about Palmer and how he hurt you on such a personal level by not wanting to play on your team any longer.

    “”Nah, they won’t go to the games cuz they’ll be too busy scrolling google trying to dirt on Matt Flynn. Dredging up various obscure statistical data from his high school and pop warner days that they can post to make them feel better about themselves.””

    That’s what I mean, its easy to be a Monday Morning QB on your couch, the rest of us who “Support” this team year in and year out with season tickets and jerseys going to the Raider Nation Celebration the list goes on!

    We are the ones RM and Mark are losing. YOU AND I are the reason they are putting tarps on the seats this year and that is what these dorks can’t comprehend!

  • RaiderRockstar

    is Palmer gone yet?

    Future picks, nice.

    Reggie does love him some picks. Here’s to hoping he adds more by trading down in a few weeks at the draft to acquire more.

    “Crap. Where can I get a ‘George’ nameplate? eBay?”
    A text from a friend regarding his Carson Palmer jersey. I guess he’ll slap Jeff George on that bad boy after hearing about the Flynn trade.

  • Dakota

    What is the conditions and picks in 2015? He shows up and is on the roster they get a 4th rounder?

    I need all of the cap ramifications, contract restructure details for Flynn, trade conditions, Palmer trade compensation before I pass judgment.

    Never mind, we lost a decent QB and got a backup.

    We lose.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    pryor is super talented and i dont see any way on earth flynn can keep him on the bench next season.

    even if flynn wins out of the gate (which im not sure he will), the second he struggles or the team loses back to back games look for pryor to be thrust into the fray.

    I havent felt this good about my beloved raiders since jc was leading this team

    ^^^^^^^^
    Yeah, only 6th Rounder for Palmer starting QB who threw for over 4k yards?

    Lousy. Should be getting a 4th or 5th at least!

    Especially after what KC received for lousy Alex Smith?

  • guest123

    Matt Leinart to be Seattles backup QB.

    We end up swapping backup QB’s after all.

    I thought they wanted Tyler Thigpen, according to PFT this AM ??

  • Chris in NY

    Compensation sounds about right. Similar to what Al gave up for Campbell. Key is was the contract redone and how much are we paying.

    Don’t kid yourself though. It’s a significant downgrade from Carson Palmer. I guess you could look at it as a gamble with the upside being that Flynn proves he’s a quality starting QB and the downside being that he’s not but we wind up picking in the top-5 of next year’s draft where there are some pretty good QBs likely to be in the mix such as Teddy Bridgewater.

    Ok I will do that for you.

    I worked to get signatures to bring them back in 1992 the first time then again in 1993 sat outside a Safeway gathering signatures to bring the Raiders back. I bought 4 PSL’s in 1995 was a season ticket holder until 2006. Have been going to about 5 or 6 games a year recently and we do go to the Raider Nation Celebration or any other events like next week is the Cheerleader tryouts.

    Never once claimed or said that Blogging helps or shows support that was from your mouth and your own perception.

    Pryor is guy that will be hard pressed to win the job in practice, his skillset won’t shine there. Much like Jeff Garcia in SF, Kaepernick in SF, Gannon in KC, and Flutie in Buffalo he is not a pretty player, he’s just a hard worker who’s effective in actual games

    We’ll get like 4 compensatory picks next year for all the FA s we lost. Giving up a fifth in nests years draft will be not as bad because of this.

    Rockstar will disappear once he sees Palmer throwing TDs to Fitz while the Raiders keep switching between two bad QBs all season.

  • aig-raiders

    RM’s first choice was for Palmer to be here at $10 mil. Palmer wants out and is reported to be paid around $8mil in AZ. I dont want a guy that doesnt want to be here. Palmer will get to throw for Fitz and prob make that money back via less taxes and cost of living.

    Well duh! Flynn doesn’t have near the body of work that Palmer did for Miss Tick to misrepresent and denigrate. But make no mistake. He now stands in the way of his space aged hero and will bear the full wrath of Miss Tick’s fevered imagination and politics of personal destruction.

    =============

    I am beyond happy Dakota i am over joyed

    1. we are dumping that tired sad sack impostor qb palmer, once and for all burying him on the raider wall of shame. this move also cements his legacy and raider tenure as one of THE ALL TIME WORST TRADES IN PRO SPORTS HISTORY. Exactly as I predicted it was.

    2.Flynn is a capable if not very good number 2 qb, and represents an upgrade over linart. The fcat that we gave up little to nothing was an excellent move by big mack and I think we got the best of the hawks in the deal. When is the last time you have said that about the raiders in a trade?

    3. Now we get to see what i have been screaming for sine last pre season. Wave of the future hybrid offense with one of the single most dynamic & explosive players in the nfl. The offense that i feel can win now, with the players we already have on offense.

    I think pryor is in a class like newton and rgIII.

    THIS IS FUGGIN AWESOME!!!!!!
