Speculation that new Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer’s velocity and arm strength has been an issue was refuted by Oakland head coach Hue Jackson.
"You’ve got to be kidding me," Jackson said. "I get surprised at those kinds of questions because I would never put the guy on the team or (trade) draft picks like that if he couldn’t throw the ball or he could not do or be what I think he has the potential to be."
Even if Palmer isn't the player he used to be, he's still better than Kyle Boller. However, if Palmer is going to make any kind of fantasy impact, it won't be until week nine at the earliest.
