Former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer: Not trusting organization adds pressure, stress For a long time, I hated the dude..... Thought he was hypocritical for signing a huge deal (the contract after his rookie deal) with an organization that he had already known was flawed. I still can't understand why he did that if he feels this way..... But maybe he DID think that things were changing. Anyway, I think I understand his perspective now and I think he is absolutely, 100% correct. Everything he says here is spot on. The Bengals organization does not care about winning.
