Isn't Palmer leading the AFC in passing yards? Thought I read somewhere Palmer has thrown for the third highest amount of passing yards in the league. I may be mistaken and don't care to do the homework, because truthfully it doesn't matter at this point. When and if this team performs at his level, it might find some signs of success.

Pryors only playtime will be in the pre season...and if hes lucky he could one day secure the #2 qb spot. Carson has played his butt off...this whole topic is funnny to me....
Carson palmer is the reason we won some games but he is also the reason we list alot of games... How many picks has he thrown when the games on the line... He is not a winner not saying pryor is but we can'tdo to much worse through him out there in some wild cat see what he can do and if he dose well give the kid a shot
Pocket mobility has not been an issue for Carson this season. He has been surprisingly nimble for a pure pocket passer, though no one will confuse him with RGIII, he has extended plays this season with his feet.
stats dont mean nothing to me. unless their TDs. and unless they equate to a winning season.

so if we are 3-10 still no pryor for you guys? thats not saying "hey palmer go to the bench we are 3-10 because of you." thats like saying "hey palmer take an early vacation because your team sucks and we want to see if this guy is worth a roster spot(pryor)"
If Palmer has been playing like crap Id agree. BUt really bro?? I like to think we still have a very outside shot at a wild card. Once that is actully been ruled out, maybe..

They use force, to make you do, what the deciders, have decided you must do.
If we're 3-10 and Pryor gets no playing time at all...it'll just go to show you he hasn't earned it.
If he's put in the time and he's ready to contribute and our season is long gone...I'm sure he'll see some snaps, although I'd doubt seriously that he'd get a start.
The onus is on him to be ready for his opportinity.
That said, he'll be a receiver next year or off the roster.
