Carson Palmer to John Brown expected to be a rising combo

But we all sort of expect that. Arizona Cardinals fans are well aware of the great relationship quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver John Brown have. Palmer took Brown under his arm after he was drafted. Brown has stayed with Palmer in California to work with him the past two offseasons. Brown was a hit with the coaches each of the past two offseason as well, and he made big plays during the season. Now the duo is appearing on a recent list from NFL.com, the top 10 pitch-and-catch duos. The Cardinals' passing game largely runs through big-bodied wideouts Larry Fitzgerald and Michael...

Hue Jackson explains the halftime fight in 2005 season

"A lot of people thought me and him got into a fight. That wasn't a fight. Chad will be the first to tell you the guy pulled the IV out of his arm and blood starts sprouting out," Hue Jackson said via the Enquirer. Something happened on Jan. 8, 2006. Cincinnati was hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers, marking an epic milestone that was once believed unachievable. For the first time in 15 years, the Bengals were in the playoffs. Everything seemed so perfect. On the second play of the game, starting quarterback Carson Palmer completed a 66-yard pass to wide receiver Chris Henry, sending the...

A healthy Carson Palmer might have been the best QB in the NFC West in 2014

The notion isn't crazy. In a recent article, I wrote this, "a healthy Carson Palmer for 16 games, playing the way he did last season in his six games would probably put him ahead of Russell Wilson." The context was in putting together an all-NFC West offensive team. Wilson, naturally was the pick. But let's look at Carson Palmer's numbers through six games and extrapolate them over 16 games. In six games, Palmer completed almost 63 percent of his passes for 1626 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. That was good for a passer rating of 95.6. Now, my declaration was that a healthy...

Arizona Cardinals have extra belief in themselves with Carson Palmer

Defensive leader Calais Campbell talks about the importance of Carson Palmer to the team. We all know the story of how the Arizona Cardinals started the season 9-1 in 2014 and how they ended 2013 7-2. Then he tore is ACL and the Cardinals stumbled to the finish line in 2014, ending the season 11-5 and losing in the first round of the playoffs. While Palmer was playing, the defense was also playing very well. Once he went down, and then once Drew Stanton went down, the defense really struggled. It was almost as if they quit, even though that isn't really fair to say. They were put in a...

Carson Palmer works on mechanics in rehab time, knows window of opportunity is closing

Palmer opens up in a MMQB feature. Everyone around the Arizona Cardinals is excited about the progress quarterback Carson Palmer has made with his surgically repaired knee. What might make fans a little more excited is the fact that he has made himself a better quarterback. In a MMQB feature, Palmer opened about some of what he did in his recovery process. He found a mechanical flaw that he had developed that had him throwing a little off-balance and that had him drifting to his left. Since he had to retrain his feet and legs with everything, including walking and running, it was something...

'The training wheels are off' for Carson Palmer, QB continuing return with 'one step in very long road'

Carson Palmer is completely good to go, but he still has things to work on. Mini-camp for the Arizona Cardinals brought great news -- quarterback Carson Palmer was cleared for all activity and participated on all drills, including 11-on-11 work, which previously he had not done. Will there be limits for the veteran coming off ACL surgery? No. Palmer can work "as fast as he can do now," Arians said. "The training wheels are off, so he's ready to roll." He looked sharp in practice. On Tuesday. Arians said out of a 100 throws, Palmer really only had one, a pass he threw too late down the...

Carson Palmer's contract not one of best for QBs in the NFL

But it is mostly because of his age and his knee surgery. Quarterbacks make a lot of money. Their contracts can end up being albatrosses for teams if they don't work out. But they are the most important position on the team. ESPN's Mike Sando ranked the QB contracts from first to worst and the Carson Palmer contract is not found near the top. His contract is considered in the bottom half -- 17th in the league. Contract ranks: 14th APY, 17th true guarantee, 16th three-year AP Three-year Total QBR: 52.6 (21st) Palmer's deal ranks this low from a team standpoint primarily because he is an...
