    Not sure how many of you watch the preseason game last night, Cinn vs Dallas (I ony watched the first few series) but it looked to me C. Palmer can't throw the out anymore. His ball just hoovered on a few occassions.. This was his problem last year and it looks like he's not the same QB..

    As I posted on another forum, I believe Carson Palmer has become Chad Pennington. His arm looks atrocious last night.

    How much of CP's suckitude can be pinned to the OL, I don't know.

    That said, Brian Leonard, one guy that a lot of us on this forum wanted back in 2007, was injured in the game. [I still have hope that he'll discover his inner Patriot next year, although WWII might have something to say about that possibility. . . .]

    I heard 2 say yesterday that Palmer throws a "catchable ball."

    I'd rather have my receivers say "my hands are sore after every practice."

    I was kind of surprised to see that Palmer only threw for just over 3000 yards last year. I thought he would've been in the 3500+ range. Not very good numbers for a starting QB of his caliber nowadays. He may very well be on the decline. The last few times I've seen him play he's been very lackluster.

    I think Palmer hasnt gotten over his knee injury(mentally) and it doesnt help with having a horrible offensive line. I think the Patriots will get the W in this week 1 match up. GO PATRIOTS!

    It was only the first exhibition game but, if that offensive line doesn't play a lot better than it did, the person under center is going to be irrelevant.

    I know it was a practice game, but the Bengals look lost. Their D's attitude stays string through the game, but on offense... ugh.

    And SO MANY flags last night.

    Real shame about that TE, he was looking great.

    I agree 100% but I saw a flutter ball on the out pattern.. Which we all know if you can't throw that, your done in the NFL..

    And second, I believe he has the Drew Bledsoe syndrome.. Holds the ball a little to long..

    Actually, the receivers would prefer the former. I remember Welker commenting on Matt Cassel, saying something like, "Dude, seriously? I'm five yards away. Quit drilling it at my facemask."

    Didn't you watch him last season? He stole Chad Pennington's playbook. In addition, he's gotten worse since his 2005 cheap shot injury from Kimo Van I don't care to spell his name.

    Poor offensive line + Mentally shaky QB + Two diva WR's who want the ball = Hilarity ensues.

    Could you imagine, say, Welker acting as a diva? :p

    Seriously, though, given all the weapons Brady should have at his disposal this year, things could get ugly. :eek: :D

    ok before we start bashing palmer, let's not get him confused with his brother Jordan Palmer who also played last night at QB. I saw Carson make some pretty good throws to TO early on.

    I don't think i was too impressed with cincy's defense in that first series.

    Re: Cinn Bengals...Week 1 Opponent

    I think there was something lacking in Palmer (the elusive "it" factor) before his injury and that and enabler coaching just exacerbated it over the last 4 years. I remember back in 2005 the newly brash and hypercritical Felger announced one day that if he were starting a team he'd build it around Palmer rather than Brady, being as Palmer was younger and more prolific even though that had yet to translate into a damn thing. I stopped paying attention to most anything he said thereafter...

    I think the jury is out on which of the four USC QB's if any will prove to be a true franchise player. But if I had to bet on one at this juncture it would be the one who never started there...

    Re: Cinn Bengals...Week 1 Opponent

    He certainly doesn't appear to have the arm that he used to, but his offensive line isn't going to make things any better for him this year. I mentioned last night that he was getting hit on the first read of his progression. It wouldn't matter if you put Montana back there in his prime and give him Rice, Moss, and Paul Warfield in their primes. When you're getting hit that quickly by the opposing defense, your offense is going to be stagnant.

    Re: Cinn Bengals...Week 1 Opponent

    BFTW will know what I'm talking about, but Palmer was terrible in college until his senior season. Every year since his freshman year, he was ranked as one of the best QB's in the nation, yet he ended up having disappointing seasons. His only good year in college came when Carrol arrived.

    And I find it very odd that Felger would say something like that when Brady had won 3 super bowls and is only 3 years older than Palmer.

    Knowing now what we know of Felger, it's not odd at all.
