    If only Carson Palmer didn't rely on the last drive of the game to turn it on. They can only coast on that for so long.

        Carson Palmer had his turning point in Week 4 against Cleveland. He had a game plagued by drops and inconsistency. It looked like the Bengals really may not be for real, and Palmer may not be fully back. But, a 4th and 11 play in which Palmer decided to take off and run with it, for 15 yards, changed the Bengals season. That play, right there, returned Carson Palmer's full confidence in his ankle and knee.

        Early this season, and last season when Palmer had time, he could make plays. That was a pretty steep condition, as the offensive line wasn't healthy, tough, or talented. Psychologically, he just didn't play with full confidence. He took sacks too easily and made bad decisions under pressure. That's partially why he'd play so well late in games. Teams kind of had to back up and play more of a conservative defense. That was, before that run in Cleveland. Against Baltimore, Palmer played much more confidently even with pressure in his face. His accuracy was excellent in that game, and had it not been for a couple nice plays by Baltimore's cornerbacks, the game could have gotten out of hand.

        This conveniently is coming at the same time that the offensive line is showing marked improvement, including only 1 sack allowed to each Pittsburgh and Baltimore. With that line in front of him, getting better every week, and Palmer's confidence in his ankle fully returned, this offense could finally be ready to take off.

        So let's see what Palmer can put together this week against a poor pass defense. My guess is he's not going to have to rely on a 4th Quarter performance, he didn't last week.

          Unfortunately it's not a new concept. Carson has always been amazing in the 2 minute drill, in fact in '06 and '07 we often had him run a no huddle offense for 2 to 4 series a game because he was so good at it. It just didn't matter then because our defense couldn't keep teams down and eventually we would have to go back to a normal offense.
