Bruce Arians thinks Carson Palmer has a little left

While there are plenty of teams at the Scouting Combine looking for quarterback help, the Cardinals aren’t necessarily among them.

At least not immediate help.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he still has confidence that Carson Palmer has some time left.

There is no doubt he has plenty of juice left in the tank,” Arians told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. He’s in great condition. I would think he could play until 36, 37 easily.”

That sounds like more of an endorsement than it actually is, since Palmer turns 35 this season.

The Cardinals also have a backup they trust in Drew Stanton (Arians said he thought they could win the division with him), though General Manager Steve Keim believes in acquiring young quarterbacks as often as possible.

So the Cardinals could be looking for someone to put in the pipeline, since Palmer’s contract can void five days after the 2014 season.

And even if the tank’s not empty, they’re creeping up on the slash between the needle and the E.

    I’d take a 35 yr old Palmer any day of the week before any of the top 4 qb’s in this draft. Stick with him AZ, he still has a lot left.

    Cardinals won how many games (10) in the toughest division and the Vikings won how many? The Vikings so called dynasty is a so called dream

    This guy also “didn’t see the dominance” of SEA and SF, yet lost handily 3 out of 4 games. Arians is a little delusional.

    Arians might be the only guy on the planet who thinks Stanton, a 29 year old QB with almost no experience, is a playoff-caliber quarterback. Hope Cards invest a mid to late round pick on a QB that might be better than Stanton in a year or two.

    For the entire offense, once they got the scheme down, they did well. Palmer was very good when he had protection.

    “Either their [sic] going to make the playoffs or fall short.”

    Well, that may or may not be the case. Genius.
