When word came down that Carson Palmer had been traded to the Arizona Cardinals I felt a little bad, then I remembered how selfish Carson Palmer acted in Cincinnati. When Carson Palmer was with the Cincinnati Bengals I always thought he was one of the good ones. He always took the heat when Chad Johnson/Ochocinco ran a bad route or he threw a pick six (which was a bunch of times). “He was who I thought he was.” Season after season of disappointment I really always thought we had a chance with him leading the team.

I really couldn’t blame him for wanting to leave at the end of the 2010 season. I empathized with him having to deal with Chad Johnson for all of those years, fighting back from injuries and trying to compete with a sub-par supporting cast. In 2010 nothing went right for the Cincinnati Bengals. We were plagued by injuries, we had the Batman and Robin side show, and it seemed like nothing could go right for the whole team. It was by all accounts one of the worst seasons in franchise history.
