It was a very interesting press conference with Carson Palmer Wednesday. Many questions were about his time with the Bengals and especially how it ended — with Palmer saying he’d retire before playing with the team again. Palmer handled the questions deftly, saying only he and owner Mike Brown had a “very colorful, heated argument” and disagreed with each other. He declined to say more detail. When he was reminded that he said one day he’d tell his side of things, so when might that be, Palmer didn’t miss a beat. “Not in Week 11.” (More in a homepage story in a bit.)
“I was telling Drew this morning, I think I’ve seen it roughly between 38 and 46 times,” Palmer said. “And I’ve laughed just as hard every time I’ve seen it. It was just spectacular.
“If we win this game, I’m not saying I’ll do that dance, because I can’t replicate it, but this is a big game for us and we would be very excited to win this game and I hope that dance comes back out from Drew.”
Asked if Stanton had a sense Andre Ellington was going to score on that play and thus in position to do The Stanton, Palmer shook his head.
“I don’t think that was premeditated,” Palmer said. “I think it just happened. Ballgame, game over, we won and it all came out. I think all of use were feeling that. Drew showed it.”
