With Florio having a travel day Tuesday, I guest hosted on PFT Live.
That meant I could request a guest, and Greg Cosell of NFL Films was the first guy I wanted to hear from. He watches all the film as producer for the best football show on television (NFL Matchup). He goes for truth, not hype.
Carson Palmer’s first start in Oakland didn’t get a lot of hype. He struggled to move the ball at the end of the game.
After watching the film, however, Cosell saw plenty of things to like.
“I know everybody is focused on the interceptions, but I thought the Palmer threw the ball extremely well. I thought he read coverage well,” Cosell said. “He made about three or four ‘Wow’ throws. He looked comfortable in the pocket. . . . He had good velocity.”
So much for Palmer’s arm strength being an issue after the layoff from football.
To get Cosell’s takes on the Patriots offense, Tim Tebow, and why he’d take Jay Cutler over Michael Vick, check out the full interview below.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
