TEMPE, Ariz. -- For the third time in his 11 NFL seasons, Carson Palmer is about to make his debut with a new team. The former No. 1 draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals has racked up some impressive statistics in his decade of pro football, but the losses have outnumbered the wins. Now, at 33, he has another new beginning as quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. Expectations outside the organization arent high, given the fact that the team was 5-11 a year ago and plays in a division that includes NFL powerhouses San Francisco and Seattle. But Palmer and his 60-year-old coach Bruce Arians are conceding nothing. Rebuilding? Forget it. "Theres no patience," Arians said. "I have no patience." At their age, Palmer and Arians are aiming to win now, skeptics be darned. "It means a great, great deal to him," Arians said of the coming season for Palmer. "This is his last hurrah, as it is mine, so he wants to go out as a winner and I do, too." Arizonas quarterback situation was a mess when Arians was hired to replace the fired Ken Whisenhunt after the Cardinals lost 11 of their last 12 a year ago. First, the Cardinals signed Drew Stanton, who had been Andrew Lucks backup when Arians served as interim head coach with Indianapolis last season. For the longest time, Arians insisted he was comfortable with Stanton as his starter, even though the quarterback hadnt thrown a pass in a regular season game since 2010. But then came the news that Oakland was looking to trade Palmer, and Arizona picked him up for a mere sixth-round draft choice. Signed to a two-year, $16 million contract -- with $10 million guaranteed -- Palmer came to town knowing he would be the quarterback the Cardinals sorely needed. Palmer enters the season seventh among active quarterbacks in yards passing with 29,465. The list of those ahead of them is interesting -- Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Matt Hasselbeck, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger. All have had playoff success. All but Hasselbeck have Super Bowl victories. Palmer, though, has toiled for bad teams much of his career. As a starter for Cincinnati and Oakland, he has 54 victories and 68 losses. He made two post-season appearances with Cincinnati in 2005 and 2009. They are the only winning seasons in his pro career. In 2005, he was knocked out of the first playoff game with a severe knee injury on his second snap. He came back the following season to make the Pro Bowl and was that games MVP. An elbow injury limited him to four games in 2008, but the following year he had the Bengals back in the playoffs, but lost to the New York Jets in the first round. He threw for 3,970 yards in his final season with Cincinnati in 2010 but the team went 4-12. He asked to be traded and, in a dispute with Bengals ownership, failed to report to training camp. Three months later, the Bengals relented and sent the disgruntled QB to Oakland for a first- and second-round draft pick. He was 4-5 as a starter with Oakland in 2011 and had his third 4,000-yard passing season in 2012, but the Raiders were 3-13 and Palmer did not figure in the rebuilding plans of that long-suffering franchise. The Raiders virtually gave him to the Cardinals. The losing has worn on Palmer. "Winning is so important, and the stats arent," he said before Wednesdays practice. "You get to the point where you dont enjoy the wins as much as you hate the losses." He has called Arians offence the most challenging hes ever learned, but he loves the coachs philosophy of throwing far downfield at every opportunity. In his 21 years as an NFL coach, Arians has worked with Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Luck. He says Palmer compares well with those stars. "Hes right there because he has got that fire to win," Arians said. "The great ones have that passion for the game, the intensity. No matter if youre playing golf, tiddlywinks, cards in the locker room -- Im winning. He is a classic drop-back quarterback. Hes still very athletic enough to move between the tackles, like Peyton, like Tom Brady. Hes smart enough to get the ball out of his hands, so hes more than capable." The biggest question is whether the Cardinals can keep him upright. Arizona gave up a league-worst 58 sacks last season, and the retooled offensive line took a major blow when first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper, the starting left guard, was lost for the season when he broke his left leg in the third preseason game. Palmer, meanwhile, doesnt buy into Arians "last hurrah" description. "I dont want to feel like that," he said. "I want to play this year, and then hopefully a bunch more years. Im also a realist, and I understand thats not possible, but I dont want to think anything is coming to an end. "Im excited that this is starting, the season is starting, this new era for this organization is starting with Bruce and all the coaches and players they have brought in. Im excited about a start, not about seeing an end." Arizona opens its season Sunday at St. Louis. Notes: Tight end Rob Housler (high ankle sprain) was the only Arizona player not to practice Wednesday. ... Arians says he will work backup offensive tackle Nate Potter at guard in practice this week and thinks he eventually can fill in at tackle and guard. ... The players elected team captains -- Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald for the offence, Darnell Dockett and Patrick Peterson for the defence and Lorenzo Alexander and Jay Feely for special teams. Jose Abreu Jersey . The league-leading New York Rangers outhit and outmuscled the Maple Leafs during a 3-0 victory on Saturday. Backup goalie Martin Biron stopped all 20 shots he faced to complete a nice workmanlike effort by the visitors. David Robertson Jersey . The Canadian Football Leagues all-time passing leader said he has not made a final decision, but he will discuss his future with Montreal Alouettes owner Bob Wetenhall on the weekend. http://www.authenticbaseshopwhitesox.com/authentic-travis-ishikawa-white-soxjersey/.com) - Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeVeon Bell, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil and New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen were selected as the AFCs top players for Week 14 of the NFL season. Chris Sale Jersey . Sociedad remained in sixth place with Villarreal a point behind in seventh, both in Europa League spots and in striking distance of fourth place and the final Champions League berth. Sociedad forward Carlos Vela chipped goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez after receiving an equally exquisite lobbed pass from Ruben Pardo to set him up in the 23rd minute at Anoeta Stadium. Joe Crede Jersey . Mars announced Saturday that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will join him as part of his halftime show. Super Bowl halftime performers often have collaborators.Monday afternoon is the deadline for Major League clubs to tender contacts to players who are arbitration eligible. Its usually a routine matter, but every year a few players are non-tendered and become free agents. The Blue Jays have four players who fall into this category, including catcher J.P. Arencibia, centrefielder Colby Rasmus, lefty reliever Brett Cecil and righthander Esmil Rogers, who started in the bullpen and moved into the rotation as injuries took their toll. All four figure to be offered contracts, even Arencibia, who is coming off a horrible year at the plate and not much better behind it. The most interesting case is Rasmus, who can become a free agent after this season. The Jays will tender him, but have to decide relatively soon if he is the long-term answer in centre and thus deserves a long-term contract. All this deadline talk takes me back 32 years to one of the most tumultuous off-seasons in Boston Red Sox history. In those days, players had to have their contracts mailed out to them by December 20. By some oversight or office error, the contracts of two of the BoSox biggest stars didnt get to them on time. The two were centrefielder Fred Lynn, the first American Leaguer to win the Rookie of the Year and MVP Awards (1975) and Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk, who hit the iconic extra-inning homer run to send the World Series against the Reds to a seventh game. Arbitration threatened to make both players free agents. In another time, it would have been like the Yankees losing Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra. As it turned out, the Red Sox traded Lynn to the Angels for outfielder Joe Rudi and lefty Frank Tanana. Oddly enough, this trade didnt help either team as Tanana only won four games for the BoSox in 1981, while Rudi, nearing the end of a solid career, only hit .180 in his lone season in Boston. Lynn didnt fare much better, hitting only .218 for the Angels. Fisk ultimately did leaave Boston as a free agent, signing a five-year $2.dddddddddddd million contract with the Chicago White Sox and went on to further cement his Hall of Fame credentials. A mailing error like that could never be repeated in this day and age, but it sure made for a stormy winter in Boston in 1981. Shocking Signing Phil Hughes was once a prime prospect and later an All-Star with the Yankees. But first shoulder troubles then back issues made him a shadow of his former self the last three years in New York. In 2013, he was 4-14 with a 5.19 earned run average and an even worse 1-10 record at Yankee Stadium with a 6.32 ERA. Thats why it was so shocking on the weekend to see him get a three-year, $24 million deal from Minnesota. Josh Johnson must be scratching his head becausee only got a one-year, $8 million deal from San Diego. Past Winter Dealings With the Winter Meetings just a week away at Orlando, it was interesting to look back at the biggest trade of the 1989 meetings. San Diego dealt catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. (Robby older brother), outfielder Chris James and minor league third base prospect Carlos Baerga to Cleveland for one Joe Carter. Just after the trade was announced, Carter signed a three-year, $9.2 million contract with the Padres, making him the highest paid position player in the Majors at that time. The Indians did just fine in the deal thanks to the contributions of Alomar and Baerga. Carter, meanwhile, only lasted one season in San Diego hitting only .232 albeit driving in 115 runs. At the following Winter Meetings almost one year to the day later, Carter and Roberto Alomar were dealt to the Blue Jays for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez. The Blue Jays went on to make the playoffs in 1991, and then won back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 93. I still believe if Sandy Alomar hadnt been part of that first trade, Roberto may not have been dealt to the Blue Jays.
