Being here at University of Phoenix Stadium at halftime, you can feel the frustration of the Cardinal faithful of the offensive performance being inept for another straight week.
Most of that frustration is directed at quarterback Carson Palmer, who has now thrown an interception in every game this season.
The offensive line seems to be holding up pretty good to this strong Panthers front line, but palmer still has happy feet and a quicker trigger in the pocket, and has cost his team the halftime lead and the momentum.
Throughout the crowd here at the Stadium you can here the fans calling for Palmers head, and the question is, when is it time for a change at quarterback? Because it is clear Palmer has not been mentally strong enough to hold up against pressure.
The Panthers going in for a score before the half, quarterback Cam Newton throws a deep ball intended for Steve Smith and Patrick Peterson picks it at the 1 yard line and ran it back into good field position at the 45 yard line, and the momentum had switched to the Cards and Palmer just gift rapped the momentum back to the Panthers throwing a pick on the goal line for the second time in the game.
The Panthers moved into field goal range and made the field goal to go into the half up 6-3 and they receive the ball first in the third, the Cardinals offense need to get on track and may need a new voice in the huddle.
