In what has been an unmitigated catastrophy so far, the Bengals, and more importantly, Carson Palmer's numbers, have been painfully bad in the first two games. So much so that I am publicly declaring that I will absolutely bench Palmer indefinitely on my fantasy team if this keeps up just one more game. I don't care if there was a level 15 tornado inside the stadium last sunday or if Justin Tuck repeatedly sacks him before he even gets the ball from Ghiaciuc this Sunday (Fuck you Levi). Palmer has been put on notice.

Trent Edwards has already been informed that he'll be splitting starters reps in my fantasy practices this week. In fact he is penciled in as the starter right at this moment. That was more of a cathartic thing for me to do, you know, just getting used to pulling the trigger on such a previously unfathomable move. But sitting on a 2-0 record and knowing my stacked team can't be burdened with Palmer's low lying point totals (17 pts through 2 games, fucking ridiculous) has made me a cold calculating fantasy owner. Turn it around or ride the pine on The Death Machine. Or worse, I could trade you to a team that already has a good QB so you'd definitely never see the light of day.
I also am calling out Chad and Housh. Although you might not be on my team and I don't actually have any control over you getting benched I have a feeling your owners are pretty fed up with your point totals as well. So step up and catch some Palmer TD throws or get fucked.
