    Default Carson Palmer is a bust!

    Found this on a local Cincy blog.....


    CARSON PALMER, THE LATEST IN A LONG LINE OF BENGALS DRAFT BUSTS

    That sounds harsh, doesn't it? You think of busts and the names Carter, Klingler, and Smith come to mind. Andre Smith's failings pop into your head. Maybe you think Simpson, Coffman, Thurman. Or you'll bring up Dan Wilkinson. Maybe Chris Perry.

    I'll add Carson Palmer's name to the list.

    OK, so it might seem a little extreme to lump Palmer in with the names I mentioned earlier. He's had a longer career than each of those players save for Big Daddy, has been to multiple Pro Bowls, and has actually stepped on the field in a postseason game. He's never held out and he's never been suspended. And yes, he's had some record-breaking seasons statistically. That being said, Carson Palmer and the Carson Palmer era to this point - five weeks into his eighth NFL season - has been a failure. 2003's number one overall pick has been a bust.

    For the definition of "bust," let's go the the definitive source for finding a word's definition....



    Does "derogatory term for a player who is drafted at a high position and fails" apply to Carson Palmer? To a tee.

    Carson Palmer has failed. He was drafted, fair or not, to win a lot of games. His record as a starter is 44-42. He was drafted and paid handsomely, to rack up playoff wins. We're still waiting for his first. He was given a mind-boggling amount of money in a contract extension that was given to him so he could win Super Bowls.

    Sadly, it's hard to envision a Super Bowl concluding with Carson Palmer hoisting anything but a beer while sitting on his couch.

    All his fault? Hardly. Injuries have been a factor. Same too with Ki-Jana, but he tops many lists of all-time NFL draft busts. The coaching or direction he's getting might not be world class. Tell that to any Bengal over most of the last 20 years. His teammates have let him down, but ultimately a guy like Carson is handed the dough he's been given to overcome them, to lead them, to make them better.

    The only thing Carson Palmer has made better recently has been the Hall of Fame credentials totals of opposing DBs.

    Maybe the pressure we put on quarterbacks is unfair. Perhaps the expectations for number one draft picks should be tempered. But the reality of the NFL dictates the quarterbacks taken number one overall are expected not only to play for a long time and put up some gaudy numbers, but win, and win big.

    The only thing Carson Palmer has won big is a reputation that great exceeds his contributions to winning or overall value.

    He has time to turn it around. He has four more years left on his deal, and this season is far, far from over. He's only 30. He does possess a fair amount of raw physical tools, and no one close to him or the Bengals would ever question his work ethic or desire to win.

    But that is either potential or abstract. We're dealing with concrete results in a results-oriented business. And for the most part, seven years and five games in, those have been more underwhelming than a perusal of Mike Brown's wardrobe.

    Carson Palmer was deemed good enough to be the first player take in the draft eight years ago. He will make $130 - $150 million of the Bengals money. Huge things were expected of him, demanded of him even. And he, like many of his Bengals first round pick brethren, have failed. Those other players have been saddled with the "B word," so should Carson Palmer.

    With the first pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, the Bengals took a bust.

    Well... I will always hold out hope for one of my USC boys... But USC's "quarterback machine" is getting a serious tarnish on it... Palmer, Leinart, Booty, Sanchez... Hell, Matt Cassel is the best so far, and he never started a game in college...

    ... Either way, this thread went over pretty amusingly over on the Bengal board when I posted it...

    Hopefully the "visual" will cause you lost sleep... I could relate a "visual" that did the same to me, but you wouldn't remember it....

    Sounds like a segue into that 3 way.
