Steal of the Century


Today's trade of Palmer was definately the steal of the Century.  As they announced the compensation, a part of me felt a tad bit guilty for fleecing the Raiders like we did.  But then I came to my senses quickly and rejoiced in celebration.  I've been on the Raider's fan sites all day, it seems 50-50 are in favor the trade.  There is the optimistic 50% hoping that Palmer is dramatically healed and the Cali weather will keep him from becoming so brittle like he was here in Cincy.  These people suffer from "acute reality".  The other 50% obviously haven't dranked their gallon of Hue Jackson Kool-Aid yet.  Us Bengals fans can sit back and celebrate that not only are we getting rid of the Palmer-Tumor, but adding 2 high draft picks to further improve us throughout the years.  Plus, as some Charger fans have pointed out on their site, we have succeded in preventing the Raiders from rebuilding through the draft for atleast a couple of years. 

Here's the question fellow Bengaldom. Its April 2012. After finishing a great season that took us into the playoffs for the 3rd time since 05, we're relaxing on our couch's and cherishing our team as we pick another star in the making, with the Raiders 1st round pick.  The Silver & Black aren't so lucky though.  After failing to make the playoffs they won't watch their team select a player until night 3 of the draft <insert laughter>. Who do we owe this glorious night to?  Tell me in the poll.
