The Arizona Cardinals may be 1-2 to begin the season. Some may place that blame on head coach Bruce Arians, or even quarterback Carson Palmer.

Yet, it does not look like Palmer is washed up like a lot believe, especially on social media.

His arm still looks strong – and he has nearly thrown for 1,000 yards in three games. In fact, he has 926 yards after the Monday Night Football loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

He was hot, especially in the first half of the game. He had just three incompletions in the first half.

Palmer was able to pick apart the Cowboys defense with Larry Fitzgerald, Jaron Brown and Jermaine Gresham. However, in the second half, the Cowboys likely changed their plans against the old quarterback, especially with their three-man rushes, and put more pressure on him – causing several incompletions for Palmer to end the game.

The quarterback, who considered retirement in the off-season, as well did Fitzgerald, before returning likely for their final campaign, has to deal with a bad offensive line. The team, even on a short week, should be able to rebound against the woeful San Francisco 49ers, who are 0-3 under first-year head coach Kyle Shanahan.

In both of the Cardinals losses, Palmer had had to make 48 passes in each game. The win against the Indianapolis Colts; however, he had to make just 36 passes.

The Cardinals are hoping that they can limit his passes this season. He’s 75 of 132 for 926 yards this season. Palmer also had four touchdowns with four interceptions.
