    ROH consideration for sure, he's pretty special for a Cards QB. 3rd all time in wins (in a lot fewer games), 4th in YDs and TDs, one of only 3 QBs with a winning record with more then 10 games- Palmer 38-21-1, Stanton 9-4, Charley Johnson 36-28-5, numbers are almost identical to Warner's, most yards and TDs in a season, has three of the top ten seasons for TDs and Yards in team history.

    I'd be surprised if he makes the ring. Stats were ok, but he really only had one great season. Was on pace in 2014 until the injury. He also only won one PO game.

    Warner and Palmer are both franchise QBs. Their combined cardinals record is 72-55 for cardinals. I will be happy if Keim can find any QB that can come close to that in FA or draft.

    This was one of my favorite moments ever of his! Such a big play and then I couldn't stop laughing!

    He played with no fear of physical punishment. Only david krieg took more of a beating as Cardinals QB imo. And, his deep throws often were so pretty.... if they were a lady i would flirt.

    Thanks #3. It was a heck of a ride.

    Damn. End of an era for sure. A great era too. He can no doubt still play at a high level, his body just won’t cooperate. Thanks for everything CP, right there with Warner in terms of elevating this franchise to new heights

    Thanks Bruce, for the excellence, especially in winning when the team was broken beyond repair.
    Thanks Carson, for being the cool, tough, smart leader we needed so badly.
    Just a shame that age takes its toll. Which is why Larry will stay. He's still at the top of his game, still one of the
    league leaders and hasn't gone down to the point of being above average, let alone a team detriment. He can go on
    for years to come if he still has the passion.

    Much respect for Carson Palmer for the classy way he played and the classy way he retires.

    This opens the door for the Cardinals future. I'm looking forward to a new head coach and a new quarterback.

    Yeah... the fact that Fitz is still producing at a high level while being pretty injury free gives reason to believe he’ll keep playing.

    Sometimes we don’t think about these guys as human. Retiring at age 33 sounds like a dream to most people... but most people don’t LOVE what they do. Fitz does... and throwing in the towel on your career at 33 with the rest of your life ahead of you seems like a looooong way to go.

    Carson drove me crazy just like he did every place he played. He is no ring of honor player IMO but when he was on he was a blast to watch.

    This doesn’t shock me a bit. I suspected big changes were coming and that included Palmer.

    Wonder if Palmer would be into like a QB coaching position? Have to imagine he has more knowledge than a leftwitch...
