I think a 1st rounder is not bad for him, maybe pushin' it a bit. But C'mon man, two possibly if not a second rounder.
Now, the reason for it is that Hue truly believes that he's got a winning team to make a run this year. He's not going to jeopardize this 4-2 start by sticking with Boller. Instead, they bet the farm on Palmer. Given this team, I can see Palmer making it happen.
However, this trade was an epic fail, if and only if, the Raiders don't make it to the SB. If they do, that justified it right there.
Truly a SuperBowl or Bust.
