The question was...
Over 1,200 responses later, we have our answer: it was a bad move for Oakland. We posted a poll asking that question and the results have 70 percent of voters saying the move was a bad one for the Raiders.

While Palmer may be able to help them out in the short-term, it's incredibly difficult to survive in the NFL without draft picks and the Raiders have given up a whopping three 2012 draft picks on quarterbacks -- Carson Palmer (first), Terrelle Pryor (third) and Jason Campbell (fourth). Only one of those guys can play, yet the Raiders used a first, third and fourth round pick on quarterbacks.
Oh, and a first or second rounder in 2013, too.
It's so hard to survive without the draft and the Raiders have clearly shown that they don't have a plan when it comes to spending draft picks, particularly on quarterbacks.
