Countdown to Kickoff: 3 Days

The excitement is building as we are less than 72 hours away from the start of the 2007 season. As we continue our daily countdown to kickoff we have now reached #3. Representing #3 on our countdown is Heisman winning quarterback Carson Palmer.

Carson Palmer set the standard at USC for quarterback excellence. In his final season at USC he passed for 3,942 yards and 33 touchdowns leading the Trojans to an Orange Bowl victory over the University of Iowa. That season Palmer became the first quarterback in USC history to win the Heisman Trophy and was later drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals with the #1 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft.

Palmer has continued his dominance on the football field. He has already twice been named to the NFL Pro Bowl, last season earning Pro Bowl MVP Honors. Palmer and his 3 amigos will attempt to improve on last seasons 8-8 record and take the Bengals back to the playoffs.

I wish Palmer the best of luck this season, except during weeks when I'm matched up against Joey's fantasy football team.

Fight on!
