I'm considering offering Kitna for him but even I don't know if I want to do that. That's how bad I think he is right now. I'm hoping he's the Drew Brees of '08.

Stay the hell away. That team is a lost cause and everyone in Cincy knows it and wants out.

K. Collins didnt' seem to have much trouble with the wind? or did he?


128 total passing yards, no passes longer than 19 yards. I would say he did.

Neither Roethlisberger or Anderson broke 200 either. Frankly I'd still rather have Palmer than Anderson.

I'd buy low.

I was a little worried about the team - and it looks like they are struggling - but Palmer has a cannon arm and talent around him. I would not be surprised to see him go on a tear at any point.

Palmer has the Giants and Browns for the next 2 games. Giants could be a hard match up since so far their front guys have been destroying offenses, but the Browns should be a shoot out.

I have Palmer and regretted not putting O'Sullivan in this past week. Thats how low his value is. I'm starting O'Sullivan this week against the Lions and benching Palmer until he put up consistent games.

From another thread regarding a similar topic about Palmer with some addendums

Despite his tools and weapons around him, he doesn't produceAnd its not so much he wants to not play well or something along those lines. its more so the fact that the Bungles don't have a run game to make opposing defenses(they let a good, proven runner go in Rudi) there defense isn't keeping them close and the line is terrible. With no need to respect the run and the fact that they can get through the line easily, it makes for a bad combo for Palmer. One can't help but think how he'd do behind a line like the Pats, Eagles, Colts or cowgirls..

At any rate, he's not a good start, and personally, I don't think he's worth a buy low unless the person is really willing to buy LOW(as in 16th round pick low :-b ) I really think he should be avoided, a lot of guys are better than he is at this point and until he proves otherwise, he should ride the pine IMHO

I would stay away from him. Baltimore and Tenn have good defenses but so does NYG, Dal, Pit, Phi, Jac and a few others. Seriously, like I said in another thread. Those 2 teams they faced aren't exactly offensive juggernauts. Look at the rest of their schedule and the teams they have coming up. Alot of those teams can pile the points up on them in a hurry AND they have big pressure defenses. A few more whippings and mentally they just won't care anymore.
