Between now and the time I wake up I'm sure any quarterback that's not starting or not on a team will be linked to the Raiders.
So let's have some fun with that.
All we know right now is Kyle Boller is the starter and his backup is a rookie that wasn't allowed at practice until last week.
Here are the Raiders quarterback options, no matter how unrealistic.
Carson Palmer, Cincinnati
Pros: Former Pro Bowl level performer, coach Hue Jackson is familiar with him.
Cons: Took a "I'm taking my ball home" approach with his trade me or I'll retire stance. Not exactly the approach of a leader.
Chance he becomes a Raider: 000001 percent. Bengals say they won't deal Palmer and there's no reason to believe that will change.
Kyle Orton, Denver
Pros: Has actually been playing this season, familiar with AFC West rivals.
Cons: He's not starting because the Broncos have one win this season.
Chance he becomes a Raider: 10 percent. Would John Elway help out a longtime rival win the West? Or would he like to see Orton beat him in a few weeks?
Mike Kafka, Philadelphia
Pros: Andy Reid usually does a good job with his young quarterbacks and likes trading them.
Cons: Not nearly as accomplished as Kevin Kolb was a player. Or Donovan McNabb. Or A.J. Feely ....
Chance he becomes a Raider: Two percent. With Michael Vick always a hit away from the sidelines, no way Philly gives away a quarterback
Pros: Would need to get caught up with a new system, but could use the upcoming bye week to help with that.
Cons: Would Garrard come to Oakland to finish the season or would he want a longer deal?
Chance he becomes a Raider: 33 percent. If the Raiders want a starter, he's the logical choice.
Pros: Was in training camp with Raiders, could easily step in a pinch.
Cons: Is there a reason why he went from captain in Buffalo to unemployed so rapidly?
Chance he becomes a Raider: 75 percent. Even if it's for a week, he's a better option for an emergency instead of rookie Terrelle Pryor.
Pros: He could fall off his tractor and throw the ball deep with ease.
Cons: Is he even healthy? And he'd only come back for a Super Bowl contender (presumably) and are the Raiders that?
Chance he becomes a Raider: .001 percent. This would be great to cover, for a little bit.
Pros: Been in system for two seasons, knows Jackson well.
Cons: 48 TDs, 51 INTs in his career.
Chance he starts: 100 percent. He's the man for now.
Pros: He's already on the team.
Cons: Didn't practice for five weeks, had very little training camp, never played in an NFL game.
Chance he starts: .0001 percent. Only if Boller somehow gets hurt during pregame.
Pros: Said all seven of his passes in college were for touchdowns.
Cons: He's the starting running back, and a pretty good one.
Chance he starts at QB: Zero percent, but he could throw a pass at any moment with Jackson calling the plays.
Pros: Threw only TD pass in Sunday's win, has best completion percentage on team now (100 percent).
Cons: Hasn't been a quarterback since high school, Raiders kind of need him to punt, too.
Chance he starts at QB: Zero percent. No matter how nice he looked on his TD pass to Kevin Boss.
