The level of admiration former USC teammate, Matt Cassel, has for Carson Palmer is cool. Everything Cassel says is exactly the person we've seen in Cincinnati. Palmer, from my perspective, is the type of guy that remains focused and calm through adversity - a leadership like quality.
"He was never interested in any fame or recognition, but instead was always interested in trying to be the best he could be, and winning. Even when he won the Heisman that year, he wasn't asking for publicity or was never involved with it. He always stayed the same."
