Palmer can still play and I don't think it's fair to judge his play in Oakland as an indicator of his talent. Oakland is a black hole. Arians is a solid coach with QB's and they do have weapons offensively and that defense is solid.
If they didn't play in such a tough division i'd say they'd be a playoff team easily but I do believe they have the talent to grab a wildcard spot.
Their defense, which is the key to whatever limited success they might have this season, just lost it's best player for the first quarter of the season.
