The Carson Palmer project begins! Hopefully for the Raiders sake the bye allowed Palmer to get into his playbook, get accustomed to the personell, and terminology. The defense should be ready to go against Tebow's wet noodle of an arm and lack of offensive firepower. The AFC West is quietly one of the closest races in all of football. —Nick Restivo
