Ask Bengals fans. Or Carson Palmer. He dealt with it.

A player runs around 30 routes a game. If you run 5 wrong routes out of 30, it won't hurt your production that much, but it sure as hell does not make you a good route runner.
I'm not asking you to tell me anything. It's a difference of opinion. You said he runs routes wrong half the time. If this was the case he wouldn't have made it this far in the NFL. Why would I ask Bengals fans? I've seen enough of Chad Johnson all these years to determine an opinion for myself. I can't ask Palmer as I don't know him.

And there is a difference between not knowing what routes you run (which could be due to miscommunication between players) and the routes that you do run actually being well run routes (cutting on a dime) regardless if they were designed for that play. I'm talking about his physical ability to literally run his routes against defensive backs, not his extensive knowledge of an offense and if he's always running the correct route on every single play. That is where his laziness problems have plagued him in recent seasons.
