    In a stroke of bravado reminiscent of late team owner Al Davis, Jackson called the deal for Carson Palmer "the greatest trade in football" according to Robert Klemko of USA Today. "As far as the draft picks, what we have to give up, I never hesitated because I know exactly what I'm getting," said Jackson, who was an assistant in Cincinnati from 2004-06. "I don't think you're ever mortgating the future when you put a big-time franchise quarterback on your team. "Any player we put on this football team is going to be someone who can help us to our goal, which is winning a championship."

    Did he say history in that statement? I thought he just meant in football this season. If that's the case he might be right. History, probably not.

    Let's wait until the season is over before saying this trade isn't a win for the Raiders.

    So long as the Raiders running game stays consistent, there is less pressure on the QB.

    It all remains to be seen.. neither the Raiders or the Bengals have the strongest draft history... This maybe the best thing the Raiders have done in a long time... Give up those 1st round picks and pick linemen late in the draft.

    No, the Herschel trade was the best.

    Let's be honest. 1st round picks out of the top 20 don't mean crap anyway.
