It's official: there are no Palmers left in Cincy

J. Palmer, C. PalmerPosted by Josh Katzowitz

In a move that shouldn’t have surprised anybody, the Bengals officially have made themselves 100 percent Palmer-free. That’s because the team announced today that it’s waived backup quarterback Jordan Palmer -- who you might know better as Carson’s brother.

Jordan Palmer, who had been the No. 3 quarterback in Cincinnati since signing with the team in 2008 until last season, became Carson’s backup last year, and in four regular-season appearances during his Bengals career, he completed 10 of 15 passes for 59 yards and three interceptions.

But with the drafting of Andy Dalton in the second round and with the signing of Bruce Gradkowski -- not to mention all the offseason drama between the Bengals and Carson -- it seemed pretty clear Jordan’s days in Cincinnati were coming to a close.

He barely played this preseason, and a couple weeks ago, I asked if the Bengals were screwing with Jordan.

Here was my conclusion:

“The question: would the management take out its frustration with Carson on Jordan? My opinion: I kind of doubt it. If the Bengals release Jordan Palmer -- who had designs on winning the starting job in June -- it would probably be because he simply hasn’t shown the team enough since 2008 to qualify for even a third-string QB position. I'd also like to think the Bengals have a little more class than meanly shoving out Jordan just to get back at Carson.”

Part of the reason I asked the question in the first place was because of the rumor that the Bengals wouldn’t give Jordan reps and then would cut him too late for him to sign with another team. Now that the Bengals have cut him to get down to 80 players on the roster with still a little bit of time left in the preseason, meaning it’s not too late for him to sign with somebody else theoretically, it seems the answer to my original question of the Bengals screwing Jordan is “probably not.”

this did not come out right but my point is the 7 qbs that won the sb mean more than the rbs that started the sb for the winners

Lets take a look at the starting rbs that won the Super Bowl the last 10 years and then we will look at the QBS.
2010  Green Bay   RB James Starks

2009  NO Saints   RB P Thomas     
;     &nbs

sp;    QB D Brees
2008  Pitt     &

So to say that the last 10 SB winners have all had great RB's is so far from the truth. Just look at the RBs I dont see any future HOF players there. Now look at the QBs of the 7 different winners I see 3 HOF players and poss 2 more. The only 2 that I think have no shot at HOF are Eli and Brad Johnson. If Eli wins another he could have his name mentioned. So for M Brown to say a stupid comment like that is crazy. I guess they are trying to downplay being in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.

"In a move that comes as a big surprise considering that the Bengals do not have an established QB the team has decided to cut all of the QBs it drafted/signed in the offseason. Mike Brown has been quoted as saying "We'll show them. We will be the first team to win the Super Bowl without an NFL caliber QB. I personally feel that the QB position is very overrated. If you look at the teams that won the past 10 Super Bowls...all had great RBs. Oh...and we will be playing against the Texans in the AFC Title game and facing the Detroit Lions in the Super Bowl". "What's that snickering in the background? Are you guys laughing at us or with us? Thought so! Bengals rule!"

Jordan Palmer being cut is no surprise, but it's something that is not really worth reading.  Just another way to put Carson Palmer back in a story because they are brothers.  It could only get worse if they are somehow related to Brett Favre.

Jordan Palmer was lucky to be drafted in the first place as he wasn't any good... just anotyher tall lanky kid that threw hard... and to most other teams DB's! 


I warn you too!
