Then you have receivers who constantly freelance.
I think it's very possible Carson is an average or below average QB now, but it's ignorant to blame much of this season on him.
It has been a litany of bad decisions over the past 15 or so games that have doomed the Bengals.
I don't care if he got two shots and manned up to play today. Football is about production not being manly. Carson Palmer handed the Colts 10 points. It was looking a lot more like 14 but the D stepped up big time today. The guy continues to give away picks and throw costly int's.
Here is the thing with the two WR's. TO is a HOF and Chad is a boarder line HOF. Both have been productive this season and far from the reasons why the Bengals are losing. There comes a time when we need to stop blaming these two guys and look more at the problem, the guy throwing the football.
