Carson Palmer not a Hall of Famer per ESPN round table
December 05, 2018 08:51PM
There may be a debate Tre Boston Jersey , maybe not, as we head into the next several seasons.The debate will be whether or not former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is a Hall of Famer.ESPN polled a number of their writers, who have Hall of Fame votes, whether or not they see a group of players in the Hall.Palmer was among them and here is what they had to say about Palmer’s case and his chances:It is quite the career of accomplishments for the former Cardinals QB.Yet, Palmer had two negatives that really played into the reality that he is not a Hall of Fame player, that Brian Burke laid out:That was one of the biggest things stacked against Palmer, the era he played in made his accomplishments under appreciated, but also will keep them overlooked.He ran side-by-side with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and Drew Brees. Right behind him drafted later on were Aaron Rodgers Authentic Josh Bynes Jersey , Matt Ryan, and Matthew Stafford, all who will pass him with continued health.That doesn’t even take into account Russell Wilson, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck.It was a bad era to be Palmer.Finally, something that will be a very difficult selltongue sticking out smileyalmer put up a ton of numbers, but they never amounted to much.That will ultimately be the difference between a player like Kurt Warner and Carson Palmer, who look similar in their career averages, but the end results were much different. The Arizona Cardinals have one of the best wide receivers to play the game but, beyond Larry Fitzgerald, the position is a major question mark for the team under first-year coach Steve Wilks.The names of those competing for playing time and/or just a spot on the 53-man roster are hardly that familiar: Brice Butler, J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams Youth Andy Lee Jersey , Greg Little, Christian Kirk and Trent Sherfield, among others.Underrated is a good word to describe the group, the coach said."I think that's exactly the point, just because (of) the perception that there's not any big-time there that we don't have good players," Wilks said after the Cardinals sweated through an outdoor practice Friday.The receivers on the roster, he said, are better than outsiders might think.Fitzgerald had another banner season a year ago, finishing second in the league and tying a franchise record with 109 receptions for 1,156 yards as he climbed to No. 3 on the NFL lists for career receptions and yards receiving. At 34, he was the oldest player in league history to catch at least 100 passes in a season.But nobody else caught more than 33 for the 2017 Cardinals and no other wide receiver more than 31. Add the departure of the Browns — Jaron and John (no relation) — via free agency and there wasn't a lot left at the position when Wilks and new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy took over.Nelson and Williams are holdovers, Butler signed as a free agent http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-phil-dawson-jersey , Little hasn't played in an NFL game since 2015 and Kirk was Arizona's second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M. Sherfield is an undrafted rookie from Vanderbilt who has shown promise early in camp.Like his coach, Butler believes the group is far better than people realize."There's not a lot of household names, you can say that," he said, "but we've got big talent in the room."Butler caught 15 passes for a career-best 317 yards and three touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys last season and sees the current situation as a big opportunity."I've just got to do what I've got to do, man," he said. "It's training camp. It's about doing the grind day in and day out."Nelson might be the biggest big-play threat in the group. Exceedingly fast, his 509 yards receiving (on 29 catches) were second on the team a year ago."He can take the top off, as you guys have seen the last couple of days," Wilks said.But Nelson's career has been plagued by inconsistency.Williams has been working with the first team often as he enters his second year following a difficult rookie season.The former third-round pick out of Grambling State also has big-time speed but played in only six games as a rookie, catching three passes for 31 yards."I feel like I'm way more advanced than I was last year, way smarter Haason Reddick Jersey ," Williams said. "It's an opportunity for me to really get it going."The dynamic Kirk figures prominently in the Cardinals' plans, both as a receiver and kick returner."The one thing that I love about him is his motor," Wilks said. "Of course he's a good player. He's smart and all that stuff. That's the reason why we drafted him, but a lot of times you really don't know what you get until they actually get here and they start going through their routine. This guy goes full speed on every play, every play."Little, who stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 220 pounds, "has done some great things" in a comeback attempt that Wilks said might be the player's last chance after bouncing from team to team following a standout rookie season in 2011, when he caught 61 passes for 709 yards for Cincinnati."Once you separate Larry, everything else is wide open," Wilks said. "Everybody's fighting for that position. Those guys are really competing hard. ... It's going to be interesting to see how things shape out once preseason hits."
