I have no doubt that Mike Brown would have granted Carson his wish had he approached him quietly and been willing to play out one more year to let the Bengals try and groom a new QB.
On the other hand, not trading a player unwilling to play for you is just silly. I think we can all understand why Brown feels the way he does about the situation, but you have to put your personal feelings aside and do what is best for your franchise.
Everytime I hear Mike Brown's statements, or something about Carson I imagine Mike and Carson sitting in the back seat.
Carson: "He started it!"
Mike: "Nuh-uh, HE started it!"
Carson: "Did not!"
Mike: "Did too!"
Bengals Fans: "I don't care who started it, both of you stop it right now!"
