Carson Palmer looking ahead to 'winnable' games


Most quarterbacks parrot the same postgame quotes, week after week. They need to look at the film, and they are taking things one game at a time. Carson Palmer is different.

Thousands shared stories telling us why they love football in a contest to win a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII. We chose 10 finalists. Now you choose the winners.

He doesn't mind looking ahead at the schedule, like most fans. And Palmer likes what he sees.

"We have a stretch of very winnable games coming up," Palmer said after Arizona's Thursday night loss to Seattle dropped the Cardinals to 3-4.

Just after Palmer said that, I started to bring up Arizona's schedule on my computer to see what teams he was talking about. But then Palmer saved me the trouble. He mentioned Atlanta, Houston and Jacksonville by name.

That's how far your season has fallen, Falcons and Texans fans. You now are being publicly mentioned by Carson Palmer as a "winnable" game on the schedule.
