Arizona Cardinals: Being Honest About Carson Palmer
Carson Palmer threw three interceptions in the Cardinals week 1 loss to Detroit
It’s been a couple days since Arizona’s loss to the Lions this past Sunday. There are many sports outlets writing off Carson Palmer already; stop. It was one week out of sixteen different games. This is in no way an excuse, but writing Palmer off after one week is a disservice to what he’s done.
Carson Palmer was the runner up for MVP just two years ago, writing him off as a bum so rash is just immature. Now is it possible Carson has regressed and hit that father time phase? Absolutely. With that being said, no one actually knows until more football is played.
It sounds cheesy but there really are fifteen more games to be played, and that’s a lot of football. Carson Palmer could easily bounce back and play exceptionally well, or he could prove all these sports shows right. My point is nobody actually knows what to think of Palmer’s week 1 performance, other than is was really bad.

I personally am more concerned about how our offense will function without DJ in the backfield. Even with the CJ2K signing, without David this offense will have to be carried heavily more on the passing game. Hopefully this past week was just a really bad game from Palmer. Otherwise this could be a really long season for Cardinals fans.
- Don’t write off Carson Palmer after one week after everything he’s done in his career.
- Carson should be watched carefully though, he turns 38 this season and our LT can’t stay healthy.
- Our offense is going to have to get a pass attack going to have any chance of contending for a wildcard or even win the division.
- Bruce Arians and Steve Kiem better be scouting this upcoming QB draft class, and also prep in case of a freak Palmer injury. (knock on wood).
