You can take the man out of Cincinnati but cannot take the Cincinnati out of the man. Carson Palmer was truly a Bengal tonight and cost his team the game. Well, that may be a little harsh. The entire Cardinals team barely showed up in Carolina as the Panthers for the second week in a row got out to a huge lead. When the game was 17-0 most thought it was over and indeed it was. Carson Palmer threw yet another brutal interception in the endzone to close out the first half and it just seemed like an impossible hill to climb for the Cardinals.
Carson Palmer again threw an interception in the endzone on a deep bomb for absolutely no reason. I know they needed to score quickly down 34-15 with 12 minutes to go, but my goodness. I don't wan't to make this entire blog about how much Carson Palmer sucks in clutch games, let us recognize the incredible season Cam Newton is having. He has completely reinvented himself as a pocket passer and still has the ability to run the ball for huge gains when the defense allows it. He deserved the MVP award and is just one win away from a Super Bowl championship.
This game was never really in doubt. Carolina dominated the Cardinals the entire night and it was a little disappointing. I expected a hard fought game but the Cardinals had four first half turnovers and it was over before it started. The Denver Broncos have a great defense and hopefully will pose a bigger threat to the Panthers than the Cardinals put forth tonight. Until then, if you are a Panthers fan, enjoy the old morons complaining about Cam Newton celebrating and smiling. Also, enjoy knowing you are fans of the best team in the National Football League with quite possibly the QB in the league as well.
Arizona Cardinals fans... I mean, great season but I think you know as well you are never going to win a Super Bowl with Palmer as your quarterback.
The Carolina Panthers absolutely demolish the Arizona Cardinals 49-15.
