09:24 AM ET 01.30 | Carson Palmer's dissatisfaction with the Bengals is a one way street. In fact, the team is taking Palmer off the hook for performing below expectations in 2010. People at Paul Brown Stadium tell me they believe the team didn't give Palmer the best chance to succeed last year because of what they surrounded Palmer with. If they keep Palmer - and they want to pacify him and make it work - they will try to rectify the situation by making sure the locker room understands that Palmer is the only leader. They also plan to give him a chance to hit more downfield throws.

If your QB wants out you might as well let him go. You can't run a team like that. He is going to have to give up that big contract though.

Minnesota will pick the worst one for their team and than pat themselves on the back and start telling people their going to the super bowl.

Palmer also had a couple of very good games while both of those headaches were out with injuries.

Why did they rehire Marvin Lewis?

There were a few coaches who were expected to be fired who were retained. If there was no uncertainty over the new CBA and the potential of a lockout, Marvin Lewis, Jack Del Rio and Gary Kubiak would have cleaned out their desks a few weeks ago.

That's why they won only four games.

This guy is getting a free pass. He has sucked too the last few years and now he is whining.

Correction--he was a bum because he had Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson or whatever his name is this week.
