walzav29 Posted October 4, 2010 Report Share Posted October 4, 2010 I know Peter King is not a Bengal fan. After Palmer went 25-36 371 2 TD's he said this"5. I think this thought occurred to me while watching Carson Palmer struggle in the first quarter of the season: He's owed $53 million over the next four years, but whether there's a salary cap next year or not, the Bengals could cut him and not have a dime count against a cap."I think this is an insane thought. Do you know how hard it is to get a good quarterback in the NFL? Us Bengal fans have been here before. Remember when Boomer had a bad year? 1991/>http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/cin/1991.htmThe Bengals ended up getting rid of Boomer to make room for the David Klingler era. Brilliant. Then when Boomer came back to Cincy in 1997 we wished he would have stayed. Also in 92 the Broncos drafted Tommy Maddox to replace Elway. He sucked like Klingler. This happend when Boomer and Elway were 30. Elway won 2 Super Bowls when they got him a RB. The point is that Palmer is very good, and has shown he can be a top 10 quarterback (I feel he can be top 5). The rest of the team has to do their job as well. If they cut him, who would be the QB? It took 13 years to replace Boomer. It is ridiculous to assume you can just cut Palmer and get a QB to jump right in and do well. Remember. Ken Anderson had to fight off Turk Schonert in 81. Good thing they stuck with Kenny (Sorry Turk). The Carson bashing is stupid. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
