Tebow will have bigger totals running like a donkey around that Miami Dolphins defense. it's pretty good but when ur offense sucks horse pen*s u will get more opportunities. Raiders will lean more on Mcfadden & to lesser extent Bush

Palmer. The team around him is far better, he's newer to the offense but he does have a lot of NFL experience. And I don't like Tebow's team trading their top WR away.

Combined yards? I imagine Tebow will. Palmer is gonna turn and hand it off more than usual since he's not gonna be quite up to speed and Tebow will be running around.

But I see Tebow throwing about 2304920394 poor balls and Palmer will have a better game.

It's not like Tebow even runs a ton, not for much yardage anyway. Extrapolate his starts out to a full season and he has about 600 rushing yards.

Palmer, not like KC's pass defense is any good.

Start 1 - 8 carries, 78 yards. 40 long.
Start 2 - 10 carries, 27 yards. 11 long.
Start 3 - 13 carries, 94 yards. 30 long.

Than what had 37 yards rushing in a half on 7 attempts?. Keep in mind he threw the ball like 36 times in his 3rd start for 205 yards. Threw it 29 times in his 2nd start for 308 yards.

His passing is erratic so that's not a safe bet. Don't get how you can say he doesn't run for a ton of yardage as QB anyways. That's 236 yards in 3 and a half games. Compare that to Newton's 210 in 6 games. 372 for Vick in 6 games.

Tough question. Raiders are going to run the ball a lot, but I wouldn't rule out Palmer connecting down the field on some bombs. On the other hand, Tebow seems like he's going to be the majority of the Broncos offense... but I'm not so sure that offense is going to move the ball.


I'd probably put money on Tebow with combined rushing and passing yards.

Miami has a good defense and I expect the game to be low scoring. It's going to be a tough game for Tebow........

Oakland is at home and the crowd will be pumped. Palmer is by far the better QB.....Palmer FTW!

Tebow puts up some great stats some games. i remember last year when he got starts and he put up close to 300 yds i think, and like 2-3 TD's, which included i think like 1-2 rushing ones.

i think they're going to ease Palmer in so they'll run as much as possible. altho with the Raiders WR's/system i think he can end up with a lot of yards especially if he connects on some deep throws.

i'd go with Tebow tho

Since Palmer isn't going to see the field, I think it's a pretty easy call.

Palmer. Tebow has looked pretty bad and having a terrible team around him doesn't help. Tebow probably needs another season before he's ready to be a starter in a new offense. Palmer on the other hand has had a few weeks now to prepare and the team around him is much better.

Tebow. He's at least in game shape. Palmer's had a bad elbow and sat out an entire off season, then joined a new team. Not enough time for him to be effective yet.

Denver's defense may be awful, but there's no question about Oakland's, especially their pass D. They make the Broncos look like the Steel Curtain.

you mean the same off season that every NFL play sat out?

and are we talking about the same donkey defense that gave up 90 points to the raiders last season?
