I believe he is a top 10 QB just playing on a bad team. I'd take him over Rivers, who would've rounded out my top 10 I wrote down before this season. I'd also take him over Romo, Flacco or Cutler. Don't know if any of those guys are in your top 10 but the point is..you write down ten of the top QB's in the NFL - the last few are gonna come down to Palmer and some of the guys I just mentioned.
I'm taking Palmer over all of those guys I just mentioned. And I'm not being a homer. I've seeen those guys with better casts around them and if I were that team I'd swap their QB for Palmer for sure. Palmer has played a year and some here with one of the worst defenses in football and arguably one of the worst OC's in football. Not exactly the best combination to stay competitive.
