Watch, he'll probably light it up for Arizona next season and be a steal for them. I doubt it, as I think at this point Carlson Palmer is average at best, but it would be funny if he did light it up for them.
Palmer put up pretty good numbers last season despite little talent surrounding him. With Fitzgerald and Malcolm Floyd to throw to and Arians running the offense, it would not surprise me at all if he had a big year. Arizona could be a surprise team with that talented young defense. Their QB situation last season was horrific. They probably would have contended for a playoff spot if the QB play had been nothing more than mediocre (don't forget they started 4-0, including a win over New England).
