Carson Palmer blogs his recovery: "In terms of my injury, I will be completely ready for the 2006 NFL season and am anxious to get back out on the field with my teammates." He also talks about some details of the recovery process, urges the front office to resign John Kitna, and and avoids mention of how the injury happened. Though this blog is probably vetted by PR people, Palmer doesn't sound bitter, he sounds like a class act.

(grr, how did that extra 'and' get in there) Notably, his blog has actually been there since September, this is his fourth post. Not bad for someone so busy, I'd say.

Class Act...Probably so! Carson seems like a great guy. But why would he be bitter anyway? It was a clean hit, there is nothing to be bitter about. Hope Carson heals well and comes back to his old form.

I hope he keeps this up. It would be a real insight into the life of a big-time QB on the mend, even if it is vetted and massaged by someone before it sees the web. Very cool.

I only hope that Carson Palmer takes the appropriate time off from the game in order to allow his injury to heal properly. This guy looks to have many great seasons ahead of him, and it would be a travesty to end it all in an "over anxious" attempt to return to the field. Same goes for Chad Pennington. You can imagine the angst this guy is feeling to prove to the world that he can compete at the pro level again. Moral to the story "time heals all wounds." For some athletes, STERIODS heal all wounds. Peace to my sport loving brothers! BIGDOGSJD

I've liked palmer since his SC days, i hope he comes back to full strength the bengals looked lost without him.

I hope he doesn't rush recovery either but I don't think the organization will let that happen. I seriously doubt they'll get Kitna back no matter how much anyone lobbys for it. I certainly don't blame him for not wanting to be in Cincinnati while its cold. I'd keep that place in So Cali if I were him. oh and... It was a clean hit, there is nothing to be bitter about. Impressive baiting attempt but, I think your missing the point. If my first two seasons as a starting QB were ended with knee injuyies, I might be a little bitter, regardless of dirty or clean hits. Not every NFL story is about the Steelers.

Carson, TAKE YOUR TIME BUDDY! The Bengals are in faithful hands with Jon Kitna for the first month or two of the year. I know that I'm gonna piss off a lot of Bengals fans, but this was not their year. Pittsburgh (despite its status as a 6 seed) was CLEARLY the class of the AFC. Honestly, if they had not had the injuries they did, I could have seen them taking the 3 or the 2 seed in the AFC. He will be just fine...if not better from this injury. Carson, take some time to study tapes, be with the ones you love, and just take some time off of football (but rehab like crazy too).
