He could if he was trying to throw over it.

True, but that does a disservice to what was a damn good game by the Patriots D.

This hits my contention in another discussion. At some point the coaching has to be blown the **** up.

Which is to say he's a good QB. Certainly not elite, not even great, but good. Simmons quote is "can we finally give up the whole "Carson Palmer is a good quarterback" thing?" By quoting him, I assume this is the same way Soybean feels, and I disagree.

There are 32 starting QB's in the NFL, the 16 point would be average. Good is top 10, elite is top 3. I think Carson Palmer is a solid, average QB, which IMO would be slotted right in that range of 13-18 depending on how this season plays out.

I don't want to start a huge fight because despite being a Bengals fan, I don't rank Palmer that high as a QB. But I don't see any injury effecting physically. He's not "afraid to step up" or "always over throwing his passes". He simply doesn't make the greatest of decisions out there. Sunday he threw 5-6 passes where he wasn't even on the same page as his receiver (a majority of which were Chad I believe, and that has been happening since 2007).

It was the first game of the season. Last year we lost the broncos and I remember a Packers fan predicting the Bengals to go 0-6 after week 1. Let's wait a few weeks before start all the thread necromancy and go nuts over Palmer's terrible game.

Thats because there was a point when he could of been better then Brees. He was the prototype for NFL QB's coming out, and up until the knee injury in the playoffs which has been discussed to death, he was on track to becoming one of the best QBs in the NFL. Make no mistake, there was most definitely a time when Carson Palmer and Drew Brees belonged in the same discussion as far as QB's go. Clearly that has changed, but it doesnt negate the fact that there was a time where that was relevant.

It starts with the OL. Palmer stayed in the pocket and was closed in on almost every pass play. It seems to me that the Bengals OL is good at run blocking but not at pass blocking. At least, thats the way it looked to me while watching the game.

That's correct. Good valid points, and that illustrates the fact that things change.
Favre was left for dead, was over the hill, should retire, and then he had last year.

Kurt Warner was done in St Louis, went to the NYG, and was thrown out the door there too.

Then he resurfaces in Arizona and puts on a few Hall of Fame years.

Brees was done in San Diego too when he injured his shoulder.

Two years ago, Cutler was on the fast track in Denver to superstardom.
Now what? He's up & down, and not mentioned with the Rivers and Rodgers and Romo's.

This s*** isn't in stone in the NFL.

I know everyone wants to believe that Palmer only started clicking last week because it was "garbage time," but Belichick and Bratkowski (Bengals OC) have both stated that the Patriots defense did not let up until there were three minutes left on the game clock.

And anyone claiming that they were garbage time points/yards is clearly just basing this off the fact that we were down so much. The Pats were sending the same types of blitz packages and there was no visible cushion in coverage.

Think what you want, he had a horrible half, but he stepped it up in the second half. Hopefully that carries over. Carson has all the intangibles and has no lack of confidence or weapons. The only thing working against him at this point is his o-line, but if the 2nd half of last week is any indication, our no huddle offense can move down the field quickly and effectively. I really think this can be the year that he brings himself back to the Elite QB Discussion, but we shall see. What do I know? I'm just a homer bengals fan...

Garbage time implies that the defense is playing prevent D or with a significantly larger cushion against receivers.

Yes, it was "garbage time," but New England wasn't playing garbage time defense.

You know what I meant, no need to nitpick my word choice.

We were playing garbage time defense. Not prevent, but we took the heat off as we got up and subbed in some of our second string type guys more. We went waaaaaaaaay more vanilla base type defense in the second half.

I actually still believe in Carson Palmer, although he has regressed, but those were garbage points for the most part.

Didn't look that way to me. I've watched the game multiple times, and the defense looked very similar. I think it was the no-huddle offense that really caught the defense off balance. Regardless, Bratkowsi and Belichick already said it that their defense didn't switch up until the very end of the game.

Another thing to note, the Patriots went for it on 4th down with 2 minutes left while up 21. Doesn't really make sense for a team that is apparently trying to run up the score to allow the other teams offense to move down the field and score easily.

Honestly, I shouldn't even waste the keystrokes required to type it, but . . .

3 points is completely meaningless at that point. A first down, on the other hand, allows you to kneel and run out the clock.

Yes, it was "garbage time," but New England wasn't playing garbage time defense.

You know what I meant, no need to nitpick my word choice.
Nah, the implication of garbage time isn't so simply schematic, it also includes the fact that a lot of players ease up when they're up big, focusing more on staying healthy and protecting the lead than going out and making a play or a stop. While it's true that some teams go prevent, that's not the only implication of garbage time.

Pretty darn sure it was 4th and goal, actually.

And Carson's 2nd half stats can be interpreted however way we want them to be. I'm sure I'm speaking with a bit of bias here, but I do think there's a lot of truth to what I'm saying. Let's just let the season play out and see what happens. Or at least Week 2.

I hope Palmer wins a Super Bowl before he retires.

No, it wasn't. It was 4th & 2 at the 7.

Ah, the game was taken off the air and I thought I saw that on gamecenter. I'll eat my crow on that one.
