TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Carson Palmer winged passes on long outs to the sideline, squeezed balls into tight spaces and hit John Brown on a bomb for the winning touchdown. His right shoulder, the one that caused him to miss three games, seems to be 100 percent - or at least close to it. But, like the rest of his team, Palmer still isn't satisfied. The Cardinals are off to their best...

At the time they traded for Matt Schaub, there wasn’t anyone on the roster that could be considered a viable starter in the NFL. The problem with this trade was that Oakland viewed Schaub as a decent stopgap starter in the NFL. This at a time when most around the league had...
