Per Greg Cosell: Raiders Carson Palmer’s first start in Oakland didn’t get a lot of hype. He struggled to move the ball at the end of the game.
After watching the film, however, Cosell saw plenty of things to like.
“I know everybody is focused on the interceptions, but I thought the Palmer threw the ball extremely well. I thought he read coverage well,” Cosell said. “He made about three or four ‘Wow’ throws. He looked comfortable in the pocket. . . . He had good velocity.”
So much for Palmer’s arm strength being an issue after the layoff from football.
