I cant wait for a real bad day, or a great day and listen to how overboard the comments get.
I think everyone misses the Palmer we used to have. He's not even close to where he used to be prior to his knee injury. His accuracy, or lack there of, is mind-boggling.
He has been absolutely terrible both weeks. Horrible. Last week, when the game mattered, he stunk. All the yards were against a lazy defense protecting a humongous league. Just because his fantasy stats were decent doesn't mean he had a good week. This week, they won, but he was terrible again. He missed so many open throws. And, he was missing them by yards, not feet. This concerns me.
I hope he doesn't have a day worse than yesterday. If so, no way they win.
The comments in this thread concerning Palmer have been spot on. I haven't read one that has over-reacted about how poorly he played. I'm a huge Palmer fan, but he has done nothing this year that shows me he's going to take this team to the next level this year.
I really hope he steps it up next week against a struggling Carolina team.
