Or is that Derek Anderson? Where did Carson Palmer go? The Heisman Trophy winner in 2002? 2-time Pro Bowler? Why isn't he here yet? Bring the real Carson Palmer back! You were the chosen one! It was said that you would throw touchdowns, not interceptions. You were to bring balance to the NFC West, not leave it lopsided!
I miss John Skelton, at least for the same amount of picks,it was entertaining to watch as he occasionally turned into a white Michael Vick while dodging rushers like Ben Roethlisberger, and completed 2 passes each game that made you go "WOW!" while throwing 20 incompletions per game. most importantly, he had the MOJO. That's right, I said it, I'm going to suck the Skelton Slurpee once again...
I'm even going to start missing Kevin Kolb if the offense is like this, at least it was fun watching him run toward the other end zone and break every bone in his body every time he fell.I feel bad, all the beating he took in Arizona made him so weak this year he slipped on a mat and is out for the season.
The offense this year is not entertaining at all, except for the offensive pocket crumbling like a Jenga tower on every other play. ("Look daddy, there goes another one!") But that's been the same for the past 4-5 years. The deep ball Bruce Arians said he loves to play never connects.
In all seriousness, an average squad of LT Mike Gandy, LG Reggie Wells, C Lyle Sendlein, RG Deuce Lutui, RT Levi Brown was all the 2009 Super Bowl squad needed...all the team needs is average players for the O-line...yet the team still can't staff an average O-line in 5 years and counting.
I apologize for the negativity, I'd like to stay hopeful and the team is still 3-4. But I'm surprised Drew Stanton hasn't seen a snap yet, is Carson Palmer that good to justify that? He was going to be the starting QB before Palmer came, so maybe he can be the season savior if he plays, I don't know. Even if he throws multiple picks, can't be worse than now, right? O-line is obviously the problem but I for one can't believe Palmer is getting away with the kind of play he puts up each week like he deserves a break.
