So far sounds like he's tearing it up.
As an Arizona resident for quite some time, the first thing I would encourage you to do is take with a heavy grain of salt any positive news or hype you hear coming from the local sports media, these people are so deluded, so full of s**t and unbelievably detached from reality that they find ways to hype pretty much anything. I remember a piece in the Republic last year discussing the similarities that John Skelton had with Dan Marino.
No matter how well or poorly someone might be doing, the local sports media will hype it up to make them sound 10x better than they actually are.
The Cardinals fans I run into regularly are now fully expecting Carson Palmer to wind the clock back about 8 years and to lead them to a 10 or 11 win season and an NFC West title, claiming that both Seattle and San Francisco are due for setbacks.
