Hey, if ya' got $30M in the bank, you're in your 30's with a couple of kids and you've suffered the trauma that is known as the Cincinnati Bengals, I'd be happy to 'rot' in Southern California.
I really think that Carson has been a pretty good quarterback considering the inept teams that the Bengals have surrounded him with. I also think he has been a leader, quiet, but still a leader. We've all seen him get his receivers faces when need be. He's been a class act. But, considering having to work for an owner like Mikey Boy I certainly understand his willingness to 'hang 'em up'.
