The Arizona Cardinals` Quarterback Carson Palmer has`nt been playing the same football like he did when he was in Cincinnati. When he was in Oakland, he had good numbers while having no real receivers. I figured he would have done a better job here in Arizona but I figure he still getting things together.
I by no means am complaining, but like I just said he still is probably learning the new system along with getting on the same page with the receivers, but at the same time, things really should`nt be how they have been. Bruce Arians runs a simple system that Palmer is best suited for and has the receivers that can catch the ball as long as he gets the ball near them. I know there has been a few dropped passes here and there, but Palmer has thrown the ball 152 times and has only connected on 87 of them. He has 1,010 yards with four touchdowns versus six interceptions and that`s not cool.
Most of his interceptions that he`s thrown makes me want to throw my tv through a closed window, but it`s still early in the season and he still can come around and start playing like it`s the early 2000`s. I was not happy with his play against the Buccs, but I keep telling myself, better watching him on the field then watching Tim Tebow running this offense.
So with the anger that`s been coming with Palmer`s play, he has another four games to get things together before I start to give up on him and start calling for Drew Stanton to take over.
