The semi-retiree was reborn Thursday night. Carson Palmer racked up his first win as a Raider, offering substantial evidence that Hue Jackson's bold midseason deal to get him wouldn't turn into the biggest folly in NFL history.

To be clear, the defense and Michael Bush's 157 yards rushing buried the Chargers more than the quarterback did. Palmer completed 14 of 20 passes for two touchdowns and 299 yards - a number that captured his evening perfectly. He was just shy of excellence.

"What he's doing is phenomenal," Jackson said, with qualifiers. "He was on his couch three weeks ago, and the team believes in him, and trust me when I tell you, you ain't seen nothing yet."

In three weeks and 2 1/2 games of play, Palmer has progressed from completely and understandably lost (Kansas City game) to sporadically good but unsteady (Denver game) to a playmaking winner on national TV. After throwing six interceptions in his first six quarters as a Raider, Palmer threw just one in San Diego, while taking a hit as he released the ball.

After the game he gave a great TV interview. He thanked the Raider Naiton for showing up in SD to support them. And then all of his talk was about getting better. He doesn't seem to be a guy who wanted to pound his chest and brag about how great he was. He was humble. One thing a great QB has to have is his head screwed on straight. Carson seems to to be that guy. I think was have the right guy at the right time.

YOu know what I heard today that to me was wierd,,I heard Carson say it himself,,he hasn't seen a live Trojan game since he left the school. They cut off the interview before I heard the reason or by live if he meant in person or at all. In person I could understand,,but I don't get it if was not at all.
