[NFL] Palmer in Kitna out!


 Share

Recommended Posts

Carson Palmer won a starting job. The Bengals promoted Palmer ahead of quarterback Jon Kitna on Monday, placing their future in the hands of a Heisman Trophy winner who has yet to take a snap in the NFL. Will Palmer Do good next season... i dont think so, i would let him sit another year. What do you guys think of this switch?

The news has just trickled into Cincinnati. Being near there, I am pretty sure that there is going to be resentment. But then again, how long can Palmer sit? He's got to start sometime. So, it's a good thing that Marvin Lewis settled this issue right now.

If you use a high pick and a bunch of cash to get a guy, you might as well play him. If they hope for Palmer to be the future of the franchise, they need him to get all the experience he can. I don't think he will do as good starting out as Kitna did last season though.

Which, ironically, he leaves college, and his college team then wins the National Championship. Ummm..Carson Palmer? You will be a "has been" very very soon.

dude. the bungles may be on to something.

i wonder if they woulda done better with him starting this season.

anyways, boog, you may be right. the last good heisman winning qb i can recall is either ty detmer (90) or vinnie testicleverde (86).

oh... add on to the fact that heisman qb's dont do dick in the nfl... he will more than likely have a sophomore slump even tho he didnt play as a rookie.

Just listened to the local news in Cincinnati. Apparently, a lot of people think of this to be a good move. Only a few (that they showed) seemed to disapprove of Palmer. Looks like Kitna will be the backup. ESPN also reports that Kitna has agreed to restructure his contract and that he is willing to play second fiddle to Palmer.

kitna wasnt all that great to begin with.. i dont know that they should have named palmer starter right away though, i think they should have let them compete for it in camp and preseason.. i dont think palmer will ever be anything special either

atleast some experience is better than nothing.

Yeah its better. That way, a post season distraction is taken off the bench. it is better to do this now rather than be like St.Louis where there are now 2 QB's. Guess who will start next season??

Camp and preseason is not a big indicator of what you can do in the postseason.

The Bengals arent yet in a position to worry about winning in the postseason

If their performance from last season is anything to count at and carried on this year, yeah sure they do.

their performance last year wont have as much effect as previously thought though.. this is going to be a lot like a rebuilding year with a brand new QB.. it really doesnt make sense for them to just change all of a sudden like that.. kitna didnt do anything to warrant losing the job

My theory is that you've got to play him sometime, so why not now? Whether he'll flop or not, only time will tell but, I agree with this move by Cincy.

I understand the move but you have to feel bad for Kitna. He went out there last year knowing they had spent a top pick on a top college QB....and he played his a** off. He had an awesome year. Only to have it taken from him. Glad to see him taking it like a pro, though. Hopefully the Bengals will deal him to a team that can let him start.

Always remember when guys like this know that their future with the team is short, they are effectively auditioning for other teams. Is Kitna going to be able to relocate? He had a great 2nd half last year, earned me quite a few fantasy points.
