Palmer has all the tools a great quarterback needs to succeed in the NFL. He is big, strong, and smart. He put up great numbers in 2005 and 2006, but in 2007 he threw 20 interceptions and the Bengals went 7-9. In his career as a starter, he has only two playoff appearances and no playoff wins.
This isn't all Palmer's fault, obviously. He did manage to win two division titles and the Bengals have made the playoffs. For long-suffering Bengal fans, that is a lot. However, as the Bengals' quarterback, he should carry most of the blame.
The following is a recap of Palmer's career and the excuses of Bengals fans for why he has yet to win a playoff game.
