I never once took the organization's side. I don't even look at it that way. You see, I have no obsession with MB. I don't bang my head against that wall cuz the wall always wins. Explain the value of spending a bunch of anger on MB. I don't see it and never will. It is what it is, and bicching about it won't change it one iota. So, what's the point? You guys aren't telling me anything I haven't known for a long time. Go find anything I said about how good the organization is.

You wanna screw MB, fine by me. You screw your teammates and subsequently, the fans in the process, that's a different story. If you don't think the timing of the departure wasn't chosen for its potential impact on the organization(which, btw, includes all his former teammates, whether you like it or not), then you are very naive or still a little too infatuated with the player.

Of course it's not his responsibility to find his replacement. I never once said that. He left when he did with the very real possibility that the Bengals, which, again includes his teammates, would be up **** creek at the position. That, to me, is a big part of the when. I know the why. He wanted TO, he got TO, he didn't like working with TO. J/K,but seriously, this whole thing has gotten way personal. I have nothing against the man. I like the guy we have now. He got out like he wanted. End of story. This is not my crusade.
I've played on many teams....had several quit little league because our coach was tough.....we certainly didn't cry about it for two years, we just moved on. Had players quit in middle school, didn't like running. Didn't see one tear in the huddle because they quit....even some of us had to go both ways as a result. It's called manning up. Got to high school.....players transferred, they wanted more playing time, and could get it at the county schools.....were there any tears? Nope, not one. In fact, we still drank beer with some of them. Look at Penn State....all of those players quitters for leaving a screwed up dysfunctional situation, that had ZERO chance of postseason glory?

Lame argument.

He's all they got. He is the only thing making that team competitive at all in this league so yea, all things considered, he's having a decent year. He's just on a really bad team, not hard to see that really, but I know you'll refuse to acknowledge the obvious like you always do when it comes to "CP9".

No doubt and if you look at post 219 I freely admitted CP9 wasn't the only reason the team is having a bad year; just disagreed with the assertion that he is "having a very nice year". So by saying bottom half in the league in QB rating on a 3-6 team is not a very good year I'm refusing to acknowledge the obvious?

Maybe CP9 shoulda paid heed to the old saying: Be careful what you ask for.

Even with that he agreed to stay on an extra year and facilitate the transition.
I've heard Boomer state on more than one occasion that he would have done the exact same thing as Palmer had his salary been as exorbitant as most post-millennium starting QBs.

He, like many other disgruntled Bengals, stayed because they couldn't afford to retire if they were forced to.

Nothing good or "nice" about the Raiders this year. Palmer is playing pretty good though for the spot he's in and yea, he should have been more careful what he asked for. Like someone else said, the Raiders might not be cheapskates but they are a terrible team right now and Palmer doesn't have many years left. Oh well, dem's da breaks and speaking of, we should beat the brakes of the Raiders in a couple weeks.

I hope this game means a lot to the Bengals and the extra passion gets us the win. But really, the way the AFC is shaping up, Cincy--completely unimaginable a week ago--has a much bigger motivation (playoff shot).

Not only that, but, yet again, the timeline was totally misrepresented to facilitate the hate. Boomer wanted out BEFORE the Bengals drafted Klingler.....he wanted out as soon as Sammie got axed. Boomer's no fool, he knew what was coming for this franchise. Klingler was drafted because of Boomer's trade demands. But, whatevs.....no need to let facts get in the way of a good ol rant, like I always say.

You are exactly right. We need ALL of these games to even think playoffs.

I'd expect at least some courtesy applause for Carson dealing the Steelers a loss this season.

Too bad he couldn't do that very often in a Bengals uniform.

If Dalton averages over 30 passes per game in 2014, I win. If he averages less than 30, you win. Loser can't post in any Dalton threads for 1 year. You game?

Big game next week. My adrenaline will be running like a playoff game only because I want Carson to get annihilated by the same team and fans he quit on. More importantly we must win in order to have a chance for the playoffs. Good win this week.........lets keep it going.

Finally nice to see our defense and offense play well at the same time........

Palmer has the mobility of an oak tree. Dunlap and Geno should have 2 sacks a piece.

Can't wait for the 3 delay of games and the 2 weekly interpections of my beloved quitter.

I hope the team will just spank the raiders.

Maybe but the Raiders have only put up 10 points today on the Saints' awful defense.

He makes it a point to be on the same page as the coaches and owners so that his team will be the best possible.

Carson never did this, he never took the brass to task. When things got bad, he just went through the motions. It was clear that his pick 6s bothered us far more than they bothered him. Winning isn't part of his DNA...some have it and some don't. Take a look at SB winning QBs and see how many are from California--not many.
You have no idea what was going on behind the scenes. Carson just didn't agree with making it public.
Would it surprise you that CP suggested a trade years before?

This statement could apply to pretty much every QB we've had this side of Boomer Esiason.

I have a feeling if Dalton and/or Green ever complain about Mike Brown MOST people will take notice, finally.

I still like Carson, he was a great guy and a Bengal.

I know some are still mad about the way he left the team. I think it was the best for him, and the team.

We now have Andy Dalton, and AJ Green. We have Gruden and a WCO, I don't think either would have happened with Carson here.

Thanks Carson for the good you did the team.

I still hope the Bengals tear the Raiders apart. I want to see Atkins get at least 2 sacks, and Dunlop, and Johnson also get 1, or more.

I hope they don't injure Palmer, just sack him, and dominate the game.

A wise man once said, 'Just win, baby' I don't care if it's pretty or ugly as long as they come out with a 'W'

Today was a damned fine looking win, though. I think Marv being aggresive really set the tone. Typically, we play poor teams get the lead and then let them back in by playing not to lose. Today, Marv really had a mentality that I like and have wanted him to have for a while. Not a Marv fan, but thought he and the coaching staff have done an excellent job over the past two weeks. Now that we are at .500, I hope he doesn't regress to his overly cautious coaching style.

Im sick of debating on Carson Palmer. He had his reasons and we are in no way missing him.....except maybe as the highest paid backup in the league. We both are better off.....we got some good stuff and he's happy. ENUFF said
