Carson Palmer will not play against 49ers on Thursday

Oct 5, 2016 at 11:40 AM--


The Arizona Cardinals have declared quarterback Carson Palmer out for Thursday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. In his place, the 49ers defense will face Drew Stanton at quarterback.


Head coach Bruce Arians said that Palmer will not travel with the Cardinals to Santa Clara. The quarterback had made progress this week while in the concussion protocol, but the team does not want to take any chances. Palmer did not practice this week.

Stanton, 32, was the quarterback in 2014 when the Cardinals beat the 49ers 23-14. He passed for 244 yards and two touchdowns in the September matchup.

Stanton is 7-5 as a starter, but has completed just 54-percent of his passes and thrown 18 interceptions compared to 12 touchdowns.

Orlovsky believes 49ers become Super Bowl contenders with Carson Wentz

There is no indication that the San Francisco 49ers are serious about Carson Wentz. There was a report that the team inquired about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, but that may have just been general manager John Lynch and company doing their due diligence. It's always worth knowing the going rate for a former starting NFL quarterback, after all. Wentz isn't a fan-favorite trade candidate either. He was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league last season. His 65.0 overall Pro Football Focus grade was a career-low. One ESPN analyst feels Wentz paired with the 49ers could be a game-changer, though. Former quarterback Dan Orlovsky recently said that the Eagles passer with the Indianapolis Colts or San Francisco would make either team a Super Bowl

The 49ers Should Not, and Will Not, Trade Up to Draft a QB

Carson Wentz was traded on February 18th, 2021, from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, for a 2021 3rd-round pick and a 2022 2nd-round pick that can turn into a 1st-round pick if Wentz reaches 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021 or 70% of the offensive snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. With Wentz headed out of Philadelphia, there is not a single quarterback drafted in the first round from the 2012 through 2016 NFL drafts who is still with the team that drafted him (with some not even in the NFL anymore). That is an astounding stretch of incredibly poor quarterback drafting. It also highlights a very important fact about drafting a quarterback in the first round: there are significantly more busts than hits. The 49ers



Overall health, not just QB, is the 49ers' biggest concern

If one scoured across the internet and 49ers' social media you would see that quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, is the most polarizing and debated topic discussed. Garoppolo has been the starting quarterback since the end of the 2017 season, but missed most of the 2020 season with an injured ankle and was only able to complete two games in 2018 due to a torn ACL. There are other reasons why people want a change at quarterback, but his health seems to be his biggest concern, which is valid. However, Jimmy Garoppolo and his injuries are a microcosm of the 49ers' major issue: their overall team health. Garoppolo would be the poster child for this concern as he plays the most important position on the field, but his injuries, along with those to other significant
