08:03 AM ET 01.24 | According to a report, Carson Palmer says he wants out of Cinci, and he'd sooner retire than play for the Bengals in 2011. When it comes to Bengals earthquakes, this is as seismic as it gets. ... There would be a few teams very interested in an erstwhile Pro Bowl QB in his prime, though. How about every team but San Diego that is close to Palmer's San Diego County home? His USC coach Pete Carroll could use him in Seattle. Hue Jackson, who recruited him to Southern Cal, might be interested in Oakland. San Francisco and Arizona need quarterbacks. Worst-case scenario: Mike Brown doesn't trade him, Palmer makes good on his pledge and stays out, Brown's hand is forced midway through next year. So long, another Bengals season.

The question is will he hold a clipboard or start for the 49ers?

He might revive his flailing career elsewhere cause he aint getting her done in Cincy.

Bengals need to start over....again.

I bet his little brother (Bengals 2nd string QB) feels AWKWARD.

"So long, another Bengals season."...

What else is new in Cincinnati?

Why because his brother has only one good season and average for the rest.

Maybe Carson got tired of the drama, and who can blame him?

he embraced it at first. i imagine that **** gets old real quick.

Mike Brown will surely jack this one up, too. For the life of me, I will never understand why Marvin Lewis is sticking with this mess of a team. It's career suicide!

Can you blame him? Last year had to be the toughest year of his career, with OchoIdiot and LocoUno yapping in his ear every Sunday.

If this were an NBA team there would be a lot of chatter about contraction.

He thinks he's too smart for that... He'll wait until a team signs him, then bash the entire organization.

Wednesday.

He may be trying to catch up with his boy Pete Caroll.

What day is that TV show of his, Dancing with the Fools, on?

Wanting out of Cincy shows that Palmer still has his sanity and the hope of salvaging his pro career. Going to the NFC West would feel like a vacation after what he's been through.
