Oh well, in the past now.

Can you pull some strings at your work to make sure this clown never gets anymore airtime ever again? I'll even pay...lol

I think the whole thing about diminishing a player's value is way overblown. Teams have a good idea of what other teams are doing and thinking regardless of what is said in public. Acknowledging a player is on the trade block isn't an uncommon tactic, nor does it ruin trade value like some seem to think.

I would be dumb for them to trade Kolb if they can keep him without huge cap ramifications. Vick had a nice start last season, but sort of faded to his ATL type days at the end there.

On the flip side, Brown is holding a hard line cause if he lets Palmer go then it could open the flood gates. At this point I'm not even sure Palmer would command a lot of draft picks.

Re: Bungles owner does not plan to trade Carson Palmer

You know what's going to happen: We'll trade a 2nd for Palmer, he'll flop here while his kid brother Jordan (a former Redskin) will lead the Bengals back to glory

Seriously though, I find it so curious that Jordan Palmer is penciled in as the Bengals starter right now and could be (if Carson leaves) taking over for his brother who wants out of there so badly. Must be a fun conversation at the family dinner table

Re: Bungles owner does not plan to trade Carson Palmer

The thing that Palmer said that kinda surprised me was him talking about just how bad and delapidated (did I spell that right FD?) conditions of their facilities. I forgot he's exact words now but a mental picture of that fly infested tub of water the coach in waterboy was serving to his players came to mind.

I figured there would be a small quality difference in facilities from team to team in the NFL but the way he described it . . it sounded like a poorly funded HS team.

I cant really blame him, hes been there for awhile and while he was paid well for his services, at some point he has to value the chance of winning more than pay checks.

I like it, the guy wants to win or atleast play on a team that takes winning seriously.

Would that ochocinco trade meant we wouldnt have had the pick to get orakpo? Thank gosh that didnt go down.

Re: Bungles owner does not plan to trade Carson Palmer

The Bengals facilities are known for being among the worst in pro sports. But one of Marvin Lewis' conditions to return was improved facilities, including I believe an indoor practice facility.

But honestly, the Redskins facilities haven't been all that great either. Though far better than the Bengals from what I've heard. Allen has led major improvements to the facilities starting with the weight room
