Anyway, it's not out of the question that Palmer ends up getting replaced by Leinart but I tend to think that won't happen. Our running game will be good and so far pass protection seems solid. And if most of our wideouts are healthy, it'll be difficult for Palmer play so poorly that he gets benched.
If the offense fails it'll be on the playcalling and therefore Greg Knapp. We had a good system in place that worked well so if production falls off, especially with a healthy team, it'll likely point more to failures in coaching and playcalling than any one player.
