This appears to be a choice.made in support of McFadden and pryor. Palmer didn't need development. Palmer out?

Sounds like we're still dabbling in the realm of "relatively unheard of and fairly cheap" coaches.

C'mon, 2014!!!

dennis allen is still there and he will start carson palmer. i don't know why, but pryor still not d allen's top priority. eagle's new coach is not commited to his (qb's) and there 's still a posibility of a trade in my opinion. the new (OC) still has to draw up a scheme for his offense. crazy thing is, he may just draw it up for t pryor! it's obvious palmer is a pocket passer and pryor has the ability to run and pass or simply pass from the pocket. g olson's past (qb's) are more pocket passer style than anything so he may be more comfortable with palmer as the starter.

how did we go from one greg to another greg with the same power blocking type scheme? and the new greg is said to produced a one thousand yd runner in stephen jackson. mcfadden is no stephan jackson! s jackson is a shifty power runner. he knocks players down who are trying to tackle him. dmac is not a s jackson. dmac is just fast and when they part the sea, he can power run freely. that's it? or if he runs out rout patterns with open space, he gains good yds. but this coach is not going to open lanes for dmac? he's going to use him up the middle again waiting for someone to open a gap for him only to hit a wall. same thing as last damn' season! betcha goodson does better again and later becomes the starter before long.
