    The fact that they own up to it after the fact helps my case. The Indy game each receiver took the blame. That was nice of them. You can watch T.O. give up on passes yourself, passes that wind up in the hands of defenders due to a lack of effort.

    If you're actually half-way interested in the subject, watch a little film or do a little research.

    - Great article which helps put a finger on some of the Bengals biggest issues. Most of the quotes in the article come from NFL personnel not fans like myself. It felt great reading that article because it gave me the "finally, someone gets it" sensation.

    A quote to save you a couple minutes...

    "The two receivers (Ochocinco and Owens) are killing them," the talent evaluator said bluntly.

      This.

      I think he'd like Arizona...the warmer climate could do his arm some good too ala Pennington going to Miami.

      Palmer is the new Chad Pennington...the guy who woulda/coulda/shoulda but didn't...since he's more physically gifted than Pennington I think he can catch on in an offense like Arizona's...the Vikings would be really interesting too...both are veteran offenses too...I don't think either one would be happy to have to baby a QB while trying to win in their prime years...

        Are either the Vikings or Cardinals in their "prime years"?

        Both teams need a full-scale rebuild, to be honest.

          Seattle gave up a 2nd for Chuck Whitehurst didn't they?

            When that happens, people will realize just how terrible the Bengals offensive gameplan, scheme and effort really is. I'm not saying he's going to light the world up, but I think he could do better than this with ease on a different team.
            Thats pretty unbiased for a guy with Palmer in his avy, lol.

              They let San Diego move up in the 2nd round a few slots in 2010, AND they sent a 2011 third round pick.

              So basically, they only shipped San Diego a third round pick for Whitehurst.

                  I agree with Bengals fans who think Palmer will be back next year (unless they have the #1 pick and the chance to draft Andrew Luck), but I also feel really bad for them. Dude's terrible. People are quick to blame any interceptions on anyone besides the guy who's throwing them, but he racks up all of his yards/touchdowns in garbage time after him and his team have already blown the game and I don't see anyone talking about that. He's had a solid career but it's really in their best interests to go in another direction when they can. These days in the NFL, teams don't get it done without strong quarterbacks, and one thing almost every bad team in the NFL (besides the Texans with Schaub) has in common is poor quarterback play.

                    I think he starts while they develop a first round QB next year. If they're picking #2, they'll have the most pressure on them of any team in the NFL to make the right choice between Mallett, Newton, and Locker.

                    Palmer deserves to stay in Cincy as long as he wants to continue to play football. Sure, he needs to be replaced as the starter, but he's also earned the right to decide when and on what terms he departs from Cincinnati.

                      Yeah, no he hasn't.......

                      McNabb had done infinitely more in Philly than Carson ever has in Cincy, and he was traded unceremoniously out of town.

                      Do people really look at Carson and still see the 2005 version who looked like the next NFL franchise QB? Because he's not that guy...not even close.

                      And you can blame everyone else within that entire franchise for his issues, but for as long as you keep him, you're dooming yourself to failure and mediocrity at best. He needs to move on, and they need him to move on. But a whole host of outside factors may very well keep it from happening and will basically hamstring that franchise for as long as he is allowed to remain starter.

                        I'm saying if he wants to stay as a back-up, you let him. If he wants to leave, work something out with him. The McNabb situation was completely different. Most people like Carson Palmer. He's not a controversial guy.

                          I think Brown will be too stubborn to give up on him now.

                            He's far too expensive for a backup. And I would definitely argue that McNabb was a very likable guy too....I personally thought he was rather overrated on the field for most of his Philly career, but as a person, he was a good guy and the media loved him.

                            Players with far greater ties to their current team have been forced out unwillingly, if the team decides (and they should) to clean house, then I see no reason why you keep him. Especially if you have a shot at one of the top QBs int he draft, which they may.

                              Agree 100%, and that cleaning house needs to start with the head coach.

                              Palmer will end up in Seattle, Arizona, or the Bay Area. The Left Coast somewhere. I'd hate to see him end up in Minny and find his 2005 form again.

                                It doesn't look like Palmer would be willing to take a paycut to stay if asked. $11.5 million for the player he is now just isn't worth it to me....

                                Personally, I'd let Benson and TO go, and I wouldn't pick up the option on Ocho's contract. Then, I'd try to trade Carson (unlikely) and if (when) no takers came forth, I'd cut him. Draft the best available QB with the first rounder, and rebuild.

                                The defense has talented pieces. They have some good, young, talented players scattered about it. They have a nice set of corners when healthy too. Build your team around that defense, develop a rookie QB, and go with some young talents like Shipley and Gresham on offense.

                                It wouldn't be a one year rebuild, but if someone can get that defense playing up to it's potential, they could definitely be competitive until they get the offense up to speed.

                                Another year of Carson and the skill position jokers around him is just going to ****** the teams development and push back how long it would take them to be competitive once again.
