The Cardinals QB of the Future: Carson Palmer

This may sound odd to many ROTB readers and contributors, but Carson Palmer is poised to be our starting QB for many years to come. There are a few factors to take into consideration, of course, such as: Injuries; HC; Complimentary players; Win/Loss record. Age, at this point is not one of them.

There are several QBs in the NFL who will most probably play until age 40 or later:Romo-33; Palmer-33; Brees-34; Brady-36; Manning-37. Throughout the history of the NFL, 40 year old QBs have not been unusual, not the norm, but certainly not uncommon.

In Carson Palmer's case, he has a lot in his favor to help him reach the 40 year mark as an NFL QB. He has proven durability, has the right HC, is being surrounded by complimentary players to help protect him and aid in scoring, has shown the ability to lead his team to a winning regular season record.

When viewed in the grand scheme, Carson Palmer is "The QB of the Future" for the Arizona Cardinals. Bruce Arians and Steve Keim are tailoring everything, from the team to the scheme, to fit Carson Palmer, for now and for many years to come. He is not a stop gap, or transitional. He is "THE MAN" for as long as he wants and as long as he performs.

Personally, I like it. There is no more speculation, as to who is going to start on Sundays or what the Offense will look like. We now have stability at the QB position, a must for any team looking to hoist a Lombardi Trophy.

In my estimation, Carson Palmer, coupled with Bruce Arians and Steve Keim, gives the Arizona Cardinals their best chance, at establishing a winning tradition and perhaps even a dynasty, in the long history of the franchise.
