Look,,I love Carson. I am an SC fan through and through. Carson was my fave and were are going back to 1970. But perhpas just not the fit for this team. From the SFGATE:\

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As reality checks go, this one was unreal.

Or maybe surreal? Too real?

The Raiders wanted to test themselves Sunday, see if they could hang with the big boys, the NFL's biggest boys, and the Raiders got slapped upside the head with the tundra-cold truth: No can do.

The bottom dropped out almost instantly. On the game's sixth play from scrimmage, Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer threw an interception, and after a penalty, the Packers turned the pick into an insurmountable 7-0 lead.

Palmer threw two more interceptions before halftime, and another in the second half. The Packers are a pickoff-happy team, but these were bad chucks.

Trying to catch the undefeated Packers from behind in their cozy Lambeau confines is a task more formidable than storming the drawbridge at the famed Mars Cheese Castle, a couple of hours down the road from Green Bay, without a credit card.

Now the question is: Is Carson Palmer the answer?

After Carsson's performance the last two weeks, you start to wonder if he still has it. The last couple of seasons in Cinncinnati he threw a lot of interceptions. And we were warned by fans there. Now, it seems that his ways haven't changed. He is still throwing them. I know it matters that he has a revolving door at WR. Still.........

^^ The only thing that keeps me optimistic about Palmer is that Thursday Night game in SD where he shredded the Chargers defense into tiny little pieces. I also heard on NFL Network that he needed to have Tommy John's surgery and declined. This answers why some of his passes are way off of their target sometimes too.

I think that he needs more time with the offense and in the system. I'm all for putting in Campbell when he is ready to go, just because he has the experience and knows the playbook way better than Palmer does at this point.

Palmer is so good a many things. He seems to be good a down field passes. But he doesn't anticipate pressure that well and then isn't all that quick at getting out of the way. Doesn't run. And we were warned about the interceptions he started to throw the last couple of years. I noticed today when he threw interceptions he missed opportunities to throw to guys who were wide open, only to force the ball into situations that were dangerous.
