Carson Palmer Talks 19-0

New, comments

So. A couple weeks back I had the (alleged) audacity to say that I smelled dynasty. By the comments, you can see that many begged to disagree. "An instant classic," one scoffer noted. I was simply "excited," another believed.

Well, boys and girls, I have another instant classic for you tonight, and if it doesn't get every true Bengals fan excited, then I don't know what will. We're all used to crazy predictions and trash talk by that guy in the No. 85 jersey. But the guy throwing to him, well, No. 9 is usually a bit more reserved.

For example, queried today by ESPN's Adam Schefter about the Bengals' chances in this post-Terrell-Owens era, Palmer would only say this:

"I don't know why we can't win the Super Bowl," Palmer said with conviction. "There's absolutely no reason we can't win every game on our schedule."

Hardly a declaration of...what the $^&*???? Can I get that one more time?

"I don't know why we can't win the Super Bowl," Palmer said with conviction. "There's absolutely no reason we can't win every game on our schedule."

That was Palmer? Holy %$#@!!! Win how many?

every game on our schedule

Win what?

the Super Bowl

And all you people thought I was nuts. Well, maybe I am, but if so I'm nuts like Carson Palmer. And that's good company in my book.
