Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer joined the show to talk about his offseason and much more.

Dan asked Palmer if he would have been ready to start as a rookie (he sat behind Jon Kitna in Cincinnati).

“I definitely would have been ready to start,” Palmer said, “but I wouldn’t have been ready to perform at the same level Jon Kitna was performing at.”

Palmer said Kitna knew that system well and called him one of the “true greats” when it came to being a mentor.

Palmer said now teams think that it’s better to put in young guys and let them work out the rust. Then they can look at film of things they may have done wrong in the offseason.

Palmer weighed in on the state of Raiders. He said it had been rough over the last decade, but he sees a turnaround.

“I’ve been more and more impressed the longer I’ve been here,” Palmer said. “It’s a true organization.”

Dan asked Palmer if he worries about patching up a relationship with the Bengals. Palmer said no, because both parties have moved on … there’s nothing to patch up. Palmer said that “it was just time” for the Bengals to move on and for him to move on: “In years to come, both organizations will look back and say this is the best thing that could have happened.”

Palmer said that he retired for six games and all he did was watch football on Sundays. He couldn’t get DIRECTV so he had to go over to a buddy’s house.
