He has the playmakers around him, his health should be fully inact, and is still relatively young.
In prior years, something was missing. He posted big numbers after his surgery, but even then, he wasn't totally right. 2008 was short-circuited due to an unrelated injury, and last year, he had a lack of reliable targets.
No more excuses. Time for my boy, #9 to step up.
Coles dropped everything in site last year whenever I watched a game, but also the Bengals ran the ball like hell, will they be passing back to normal? I mean if Palmer gets the attempts up like he did in previous years in his career he can rack up the stats but if they run a ton nothing he can do but be efficient with puney yardage totals.
