Brian Baldinger with the NFL Network joins Grant Napear to talk about the Oakland trade and all things NFL. Brian said if Oakland wanted any shot at a winning season, the team had to make this trade. He feels that the Raiders have a better chance to make the playoffs with Palmer than with Kyle Boller.
When asked about his thoughts of the team as it sits 4-2, Brian said the Raiders could be a playoff team, citing their great speed and a good offensive line. The defense, however, has some holes, he said. In the past two weeks the Raiders have been through a roller-coaster of emotions. It is clear that the team in looking to win now, he said.
