08:01 AM ET 03.17 | According to one GM whose team could use a quarterback, the Bengals know Carson Palmer won't play for them again. But he also believes Palmer won't be dealt -- if he's dealt at all -- for nearly a year. ... The GM said the Bengals' Marvin Lewis knows Palmer won't play for him again, and he should. He talked to the guy. But there's that matter of what to do next, and this may be a test of Lewis' power and leverage -- both of which he may have gained by agreeing to a two-year extension when he was expected to leave. Essentially, the question is this: Can he convince Brown to deal Palmer for draft picks, players or both to get something of value this season? Most people believe he cannot, and that was reiterated by our GM who said he's certain Cincinnati won't budge on Palmer because of what it would mean for others.

Making business decisions with your ego leads to wonderful success stories like the Bungles.

You just knew before the end of the week there would be yet another Bungles story. Really? How many more frickin times is FN going to post the same drivel about Palmer. We get it...he's gone. Good for him! Btw...read that Ocho is going to try out for the KC MLS team. hahaha!

It???s sad to say that maybe only the Raiders have been run worse in the past 4-8 years. Trade him out of division and conference and get what you can. He will retire if you don???t. Better to have something than nothing.

you are speaking with logic in mind ...Mike Brown has proven that logic will never rule the day

Can't we spin off Carson Palmer and the Bengals as its own web site? All Carson, all the time. Every day, 4 or 5 brand new threads with the same content and the same picture.

The more the Bengals stink, the less they sell out and the more often I get to see real games on Sunday! Assuming there are games this fall.

Carson is unhappy ? When did this happen??

March 17, 2011  09:00 AM ET

LISTEN! ....do you hear it? It's the sound of FN beating a dead horse!

What is this the third or fourth time, we have had to read about this?

If he's done, why is this a story if everyone knows it?

He's with the Bengals, how much more unhappy could he be?

March 17, 2011  09:26 AM ET

"Lewis knows Palmer's done..."? Yeah, everyone else has known that for a while now. Marvin is still behind the curve, it would seem. And he's all yours for another season, Bengals fan.

Palmer threads replacing F*rve threads as most plentiful and annoying?

I guess it beats another Jets thread. For now...

Would you rather have another Jets story, or read about tonight's dinner guest of the Panthers?

March 17, 2011  09:32 AM ET

Who cares! Palmer ISNT that good.. Neither are the Bungles.. Moving on..

March 17, 2011  09:42 AM ET

The interns can't resist pics of those snappy Bungle unis.

OK Corral is probably enjoying all the business the Panthers are bringing in lately.
