Cardinals trade for Carson Palmer

NFL Network says Palmer has thrown 50 INTs in the last 3 years. He'll push the ball down field and rack up yards but it's hard to be successful with that amount of Int 's. lol
Palmer may get the Cards to a step beneath mediocrity.

Wait, the Raiders get ONLY a 7th if Palmer starts 13 games. And if he doesn't, then they get him for just his contract

But that contract was massive. They needed to get that contract off the books.

So let me see. What cost a first and a second round pick now fetches a 7th.

Dem Raiders. Dey nose FA.
RIP Carson Palmer.

Palmer is better than either guys. His problem the last two seasons was a lack of consistency. Yet he still threw 4000 yards last season. With Fitzgerald as long as the Cardinals can bring a half decent OL, Palmer can be dangerous.


For sure.

For anyone to say that Palmer is arguably not better than Kolb or Skelton . . . well . . . their credibility on football matters just took a big hit.

Homerism aside. The Cards are a much improved team with Palmer. He's a former pro bowler and he has not forgotten how to play. Over 4,000 yds passing last season with poor surrounding talent. But he has that Romo-like tendency: He'll make just enough bonehead plays at critical times to lose his team the game. It happens when the QB will try too hard to put the team on his shoulders.

It's up to the coaches. If they can upgrade on the schemes, control Palmer, and shore up the protection, the Cards can be very good. I think that Arians can be the guy. There will be some optimism with a new regime coming in. It really depends on how they come out of the gate. If they have some early success the team will garner hope and confidence and could even contend. If they lose games early, they could regress into that "Oh no . . . not again" syndrome and go into shell.

I hope that they do contend. It only helps the Niners if the NFC West is not a two horse race. When you're the top dog, the want the guys trying to unseat you to be fighting amongst themselves and not focus on you exclusively.

Don't underestimate the Cardinals. They now have a coach that has been successful with multiple QBs (Manning, Roethlisberger, Luck). He can tailor the offense to fit Palmer's strengths. And they have the WR corps to succeed.

Improve the O-line, find a nice TE in the mid-rounds, and obtain stability in the running backs unit, and you'll have potential for a nice offense.

So, in other words, be like the Niners who possesses all of those plus great QB and WRs.
The Cardinals have us right where they want us.
On the surface, it looks pretty solid - Palmer to Fitz.

If they don't get real Oline help Carson is toast. He is not a mobile guy playing 2 Very tough D's in the division.
