Carson Palmer sparred no details when he laid out his feelings during a recent Sports Illustrated story. Palmer said that he hated UCLA, but not as much as he now hates the Steelers—who he wished will lose every game next season. (Mike Holmgren likely agrees.)
Palmer also lashed out at the doctor who performed knee surgery—Dr. Lonnie Paulos—when he said that the doc likes to hear himself talk and see his name in the paper. (Was this guy on the Real World?)
But his most impressive blast was reserved for former Baltimore/Philadelphia Stars (along with Saints and Colts) coach Jim Mora. The current NFL Network analysts said that Palmer would probably not be ready to start the season. Palmer immediately went to the “He doesn’t know me card” and then asked if this was the same guy who would go on locker room rants about making the playoffs. (He is.)
So we would like to offer these heart-warming posters to Carson Palmer, to hopefully keep up his motivation during rehab.
