I wouldn't give up much to get him from the Bengals, but if they would take a 5th rounder or less I wouldn't mind that trade.

Before his injuries (mostly his elbow injury), Palmer was on the verge of becoming one of the elite QB's in the league. I remember discussions of placing him in the top 5 QB's in the league.

What are your thoughts about Palmer?

I think just like Alex, some change of scenery could do him some good.

I definitely like the thought of Palmer more than the thought of Smith or McNabb, but ONLY if we also draft or bring in some young talent to develop. Palmer as a 2-3 year stop gap sounds good.

He's the best option available imo.

agreed, only option I would rather see would be Kevin Kolb but only if the asking price came down

No way Philly trades Kolb when he's only going to make less than $2M. The only scenerio I can see is if Kolb demands a trade so he can be a starter some where else.

The people on here, although ridiculous, won't die if we don't get Carson Palmer.

No but he could probably play in it. They run a digit system with I believe Bob Bratkowski as the OC.
I believe he played in a WCO system at USC and in cincy, i tried to do the research but i couldn't find actual proof, but as a usc fan and watching a pete carrol SC team it look like a wco system. but even if he doesn't it doesn't matter cause no one on our roster has played in a wco system, and with Harbaugh coming in (btw love this pick up cause i have watch him build that stanford team and i know he could do the same in a short period of time with alot less to do) he bring newer type of the WCO system so either way if we get Carson, ( always been a fan of this guys not just because he is from SC since i didn't watch him at SC) i think with a creative oc and our non diva like WR he going to get back to what he was before he was hurt. i think he got more than 2 yr in him so i would be ok 2 to a 3rd round this yr, and i tell you why, if we get to the playoffs next yr and i think we are just a QB away we could have a shot at being in the NFC title and possibly going to the SB game because with him and harbaugh we could make it as a 2nd seat. you might think i am nuts for saying SB, but you look at the team that are playing in this yr championships they have talented Def, and a QB that can make plays when it counts. this what will have, our def is as talented as ever it he could in improve with one or two pieces we could get in the draft or FA, and palmer was one of the best in making plays that counts before his injury and with harbaugh here i don't see how palmer couldn't get fix to be there again.

btw i am not a newbie, i been following this site for yrs and these posts as will, i just don't like to post cause there some ruthless ppl on here, that makes you think the we aren't cheering for the same team, but for rivials

Great first post, I agree with you. All you really need to succeed in the NFL is a good QB and a great defense. Sure, good WRs and RBs help and you need some options for your QB but its the most important position. If we add a few more great players to our D somehow, through draft and FA, and we get a QB like Palmer and put him under a real offensive HC like Harbaugh, we could get a lot farther than we have. We almost made the playoffs in this craptastic division with mediocre QB play and a horrendous head coach. We know we're going to get better coaching, so if we get a better QB we should go pretty far.

We have plenty of options on offense for whoever the QB is, Vernon, Gore, and Crabtree. Plus we have some other young guys who could turn out like DIxon and Morgan. It's not exactly fireworks like the Eagles WR corp or anything, but it's not like the cupboard is bare either. We just need a QB who can hit them and make the opponent fear the pass to make Gore more successful. Our OLine is young and getting better too. So he would have something to work with here. We should do it.
Considering how high are 3rd round pick is and who may be available there, I'm hoping we can get away with a 4th this year and maybe a third next year. But I'm open for it. It is an instant upgrade and buys us 1-3 years while the rookie develops.
