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.

Delhomme can certainly show those young QBs how to throw a quality interception.  Although it would be interesting to see what Carson Palmer could do with the receiving corps in Arizona...oh, wait, he has had a quality receiving corps in the 'Nati.  Does not seem to have made that much of a difference to the fortunes of the Bengals.  Of course, they ARE the Bengals (but did we not say that about the Cardinals until a few years ago, and the Saints).

Please Cardinals get somebody at quarterback!!!  I believe Palmer, Bulger, Mcnabb, Kolb and any other of the qb's in free agency is better than watching the nightmare they have behind center.  I don't think I can stomach seeing Skelton or Anderson lead this team again.  Fitzgerald doesn't deserve those scrubs to throw him the ball ever again.

Year 1: Leads a team that hasn't been relevant EVER to the Super Bowl.
Year 2: Leads same team to the playoffs, throws for like a bazillion yards and 50 points and beats Green Bay in the first round, and then the team loses in the next round.

Year 3: CUT.

Yeah, that makes sense. Cards would have signed Warner to a three-year contract if he would have done it. I don't use this term often, because it's dumb and usually a crutch used by people hearing something logical they don't like...but you must just be a Warner "hater".

This sounds like Barry Sanders situation with the Detroit Lions back in 1999.  Sanders was tired of losing.  The Lions got rid of all their key players and kept only him.  They never had a great QB to help Sanders.  The Lions did not want to trade him or release him so he decided to retire.  To the Bungles: Let Carson Palmer go.  If you trade him, you will get something back it return.  If he retires, you get nothing in return.  He is a good player.

Carson Palmer is in a "crazy" situation? I guess for clueless individuals the fact of a player being in the middle of a contract might seem crazy. Palmer chose to make his situation what it is by trying to force his way out of a contract he signed, and accepted the up-front monies for. I guess we should all be able to re-write the terms of contracts we sign whenever we choose. I dont know who is the dumbest of the group....Warner, Palmer or the idiot who wrote this drivel.

What is Warner talking about. Palmer SUCKS, they don't want McNabb, but they will take a Guy that stats really suck. Please do me a favor, go look at Palmers Career stats verses McNabbs Career stats. I know Palmer is the Proto-Type QB, but he SUCKS! Let the BUSTER retire. What exactly does Warner and Palmer have in common? I know Ocho Cinco and Owens are JERKS, however they are all TOP Receivers and Palmer could NOT get the Job done with them, and a TOP Running Back.

Cardinals are gonna get Jake Delhomme. He is cheap and a good mentor to the young QBs there already. Jake is good when he has a great WR (Steve Smith and then Larry Fitzgerald) and the Arizona playbooks plays to his strengths. Mark my words, Jake will end up in Arizona.

Carson Palmer succeeding at Arizona like Kurt Warner did? Lol..Warner did not suceed because if he did then he would still be playing at Arizona. He got cut by the team and did not want to play for anyone else (weird) so he retired. End of story. I respect what Warner has accomplished in football, but the last few seasons he did nothing to be proud of....namely preteding to want to play for the 49ers only to resign with Arizona. Arizona thought that they could do without Warner so they cut him. I will say it again. Arizona cut him. They thought anyone was better than Warner. The Cardinals proved that Derek Anderson is not better than Warner. Warner should ask the Cardinals if they want him back because Warner has NFL experience...something none of the recent QBs drafted have. Speaking of veterans...I want the 49ers to sign Jeff Garcia. Garcia did well in two stints with the Eagles. I bet he does just as well in running Harbaugh's offense.
