According to Jason Cole of Yahoo, the Raiders moved right into trying to trade for retired Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer after learning that incumbent starter Jason Campbell has been lost for the season.
Of course, it's unlikely anything will happen given Mike Brown's stance on the Palmer situation. But hey: trade deadline speculation thread!

KUBIAK has already offered a future third-round pick for him!
The Broncos appear to be looking to deal Brandon Lloyd at the deadline. A few teams have expressed interest in Lloyd according to the Denver Post report, including Tennessee and Carolina. However, local writers for both the Panthers and Titans have already second-guessed just how much interest their teams would have in Lloyd.
And hey, this would also be a good thread to discuss the other trades this week: Houston picking up Derrick Mason for a conditional seventh-rounder and Aaron Curry being dealt to Oakland for a seventh-rounder in 2012 and a conditional fifth-rounder in 2013.

Grantland's Chris Brown takes a look at the strategic foundation of Al Davis' offenses. Yes, there was more to it than chucking the ball deep.

Arizona's University of Phoenix stadium will host it's second Super Bowl after beating out Tampa's bid for the 2015 event. The last one, as you may remember, involved David Tyree, an 18-0 Patriots team, and one of the better Super Bowls in NFL history.

The Denver Post reports that players were told at an 8 a.m. meeting that Kyle Orton has lost the starting job to Tim Tebow. Perhaps the Dolphins and Broncos can work something out for Orton before the trade deadline?

Are the 49ers for real? What is wrong with Atlanta's offense? Can Mike Tanier's hatred of Juan Castillo be properly quantified at this point?

Can you have a right guard controversy? Can you play defensive end as a ninja? That plus plenty of Ohio State banter in this week's best quotes.
