Bengals Early Bird Special: Early Bird Gets the Worm

Good morning everyone. Time to wake up finally after hitting your snooze button 58 times this morning in an attempt to get some extra sleep. Grab some breakfast of champions (bacon) and dash off to work before that one coworker of yours that annoys you to no end notices.

So how about Carson Palmer's debut with Oakland? Right now Mike Brown looks like a genius for getting two high draft picks for Palmer.

And quite frankly Palmer looks past his prime. He threw three interceptions against the Chiefs. In all honesty I knew Palmer would be rusty, but three interceptions was more than I expected. Looks like his "workouts" during his "offseason" really paid off for him in the end. But I'll try not to be too quick to judge Palmer after one game.

Maybe next game will be better for Palmer. But then again I'm not concerned with his performance since he's no longer a Bengal. The only reason I pay attention to the Raiders now is to see if that second round pick will turn into a first round pick. 

Alright here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Tuesday.
