Warner keeps beating Palmer-to-Cards drum

A couple months ago, Kurt Warner made it very clear on a radio appearance that he believed Carson Palmer would succeed in Arizona, stating that Palmer would be "tremendous" in that system. (Oddly: a few months ago I thought the Cardinals might "have a look" at Cam Newton. Wow.)

Well, Warner repeated those marks after the Cards wrapped up their draft and didn't address the quarterback position, stating on the Dan Patrick Show that Palmer would be a better fit for the Cardinals than Marc Bulger, Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb.

“I would take Carson,” Warner said.

He also apparently said that Palmer is in a "crazy" situation (Cincinnati, everyone!) but that the former Heisman-Trophy winner would thrive in Arizona.

And he might. The only problem is, he's got to escape the clutches of Mike Brown before that can actually happen.

Fortunately for Palmer -- and perhaps Arizona -- the Bengals took Andy Dalton during the NFL Draft, and might be amenable to actually getting something in return for Palmer, rather than letting him retire.

Zona contends again with an upper-echelon QB.  It's that simple.
Yeah, nevermind that they were 30th in ppg allowed, 29th in total yards allowed and their sack leader was Calais Campbell with six, but defense is overrated anyway.

The best QB available is Orton....  Orton proved he can manage an offense and not throw a ton and he also proved if you need him to drop back and deal, he can do that too.  With Larry Fitzgerald there and still young, anyone can play WR on the other side of him.  Fill a gap or two on the O line and teach your backs to hold onto the ball and you have a good offense.  Personnel is not what is missing here.  I believe they have the talent except for at QB.  This is one team that is a QB away from being dangerous expecially in their garbage  division.  You can get Orton for a 2nd or 3rd rounder or you can be a big spender and get an unproven guy like Kolb for a 1st.  Makes sense to me that you spend less and get a proven QB when that is all you need with Fitz in Ariz....

as a bengals fan, i can't blame palmer for wanting out, as for a leader we also need one. his time here has run it's coarse
and need to clean house with the likes of palmer and ocho - owens is gone. trade palmer if you can get a kicking tee for him and just release ocho let him ruin someone else's team

The only thing I have to say about the Bengals is that they suck, yeah they made the playoffs in 2005 and 2010, two winning seasons out of twenty since they went to the Superbowl. Bottom line they have been terrible since 1990.  As for Arizona/Phoenix, they had a couple good years thanks to a HOF QB that cannot be replaced. Three winning seasons since they moved to Arizona, a nice place to live, not a good football team dudes. I hope they can turn things around, but history says no, sorry.  PS, what would Arizona give up to get Palmer if he is traded there?

Go from one piss poor organization to another, Palmer may be dumb, not that dumb. Argure with that, I dare you bitches!

Uh, okay. The Cardinals went to the Super Bowl with a good QB. They lost 1 easily replaced receiver and 1 not-as-easily replaced linebacker, and suddenly, they sucked? No, they sucked because they had no QB worth a damn. They then go out and draft the best CB - maybe even player - in the draft, a top-shelf RB, and a solid, replacement OLB to go along with the tools they already have. Adding a QB who isn't utterly incompetent virtually guarantees them the division title.

You can't really say the same about the Bengals, especially in a division with the Ravens and Steelers.

koop1969, that was one of the dumbest post on a website, EVER.  Zona contends again with an upper-echelon QB.  It's that simple.  I believe Palmer can give them what they've been missing since Warner retired, and don't think Fitz wouldn't love to catch passes from this guy.  Arizona's not a scrub team.  They're like alot of teams in the league.  They need a coach, and a QB.  They're halfway there.  Their first round pick was awesome, btw.  They get a real field general under center, and they'll be dangerous.  Nobody'll want to play them!

Kolb will be coming here to the Cards.  It's all over talk radio here in the valley.  There's a wink wink deal so I fully expect to see Kolb be named a Cardinal within the next month & a half.

I think the  niners should take a look at Palmer. He has talent and he can suceed in the niners system. We got young talent on offense  and a super bowl defense we just need that QB. Come on ninets dont blow this chance
