Carson Palmer Is Not The Answer In Arizona

When the Arizona Cardinals traded for quarterback Carson Palmer this off-season it looked like the Cardinals had finally found their first real quarterback since Kurt Warner.

Heck, you can even...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#21)

Last week: 23 (+2) The offense is significantly improved this season, but the defense is now the problem and it’s not going to get better as they’ve lost 3 of their top-4 rush linebackers for the season with injury in the past week.
