After six quarters of play and six interceptions, Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer made the Forbe's list of most disliked players.

There is a rumor that Raiders third-year wide receiver Darrius Heyward Bey and tight end Kevin Boss stuffed the ballot box after rumors spread that Palmer lobbied for T. J. Houshmandzadeh to take over the possession receiver role over Heyward Bey and that tight end Boss take a non-receiving role.

Forbes reported:

"Highly touted in college like Young, though with some early success. But Palmer ran into injury and attitude problems in Cincinnati, alienating teammates and developing a prima donna reputation. The Bengals did well to get a pair of draft picks from Oakland for Palmer, who hadn't been playing through this season's first seven weeks."

In addition, I suspect that most of Palmer's former Bengals teammates cast their votes for the former Bengals quarterback who admitted to quitting on the team for selfish reasons.

Regardless, Palmer will get a chance to redeem himself Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers. If Palmer leads the Raiders to a win, I'm sure that most members of the Raider Nation will view him favorably.
