Yeah, back in '05 I remember Bengals fans talking about how amazingly great Palmer was, and he was obviously going to win them several super bowls.

He has been good, he just plays for a hopeless team.

Actually he has played the Ravens tough over the years - Ravens losing in Cincy tipped the division this year

Gregg Doyel of CBS Sportsline lives in Cincinnati - if Jay Cutler quitting in Chicago today does not give Steelers fans an appreciation for how great it is to have a mentally tough QB, read this

Call Carson's bluff, Bengals. Let him quit

Palmer was so mentally weak that, as his injuries mounted and his numbers started to decline, the Bengals brought in the most harmless backup quarterback in the history of the NFL -- the starter's little brother. With Jordan Palmer as the No. 2, there was never a question who would be No. 1. Carson never had to worry. Never had to compete.

His production kept sliding. His impact in the locker room kept receding. He never said a harsh word about the idiots around him, his silence setting free Ochocinco and Houshmandzadeh and Owens.

Now he wants out? Really? Palmer doesn't deserve a fresh start. He helped steer this team into the iceberg, so he can go down with the ship. Or he can do the most Carson Palmer-like maneuver imaginable and quit.

I hope they let him go. As shaky as his play has been over the years, if the Bungles are forced to go with a rookie at QB or start one of their pathetic backups, they'll be lucky they win ONE game next year. Of course, they could always go after a half-decent free agent like Kolb, but come on. Do you really think Mike Brown is going to offer up the cash?

They'll probably sign some hack like Alex Smith or JaMarcus Russell.

Maybe they will draft Cam Newton.
