In looking back at Palmers' Bengal career, when he had a decent to good running game he had his best years, Knapp may end up being a really good thing for Palmer.
Calm him down, and keep some of the pressure off with the ZBS running game.
If you look at John Elway's numbers, he played his best football after he was 32 and the Broncos put in the WCO.
Many other guys played their best at an older age as well like Plunk and Gannon.
Hell, Drew Brees just had one of the best season in NFL history and was 32 years old.
Why can't Palmers' age and experience be an advantage for the next few years?
I bet he is really motivated to leave the NFL on a high note, and he is on the right team to do it considering the players we have around him.
