Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

center_img Vince Marotta, Co-host of Bickley & MarottaWe’ve probably just seen Carson Palmer take a snap for the Arizona Cardinals for the last time.After getting slammed by a blitzing Alec Ogletree in an ugly 33-0 loss Sunday in London, Palmer left the game. Head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer broke his arm, needs surgery and will miss at least eight weeks. The Cardinals have nine games left.There’s no need for Palmer to play again this year, even if he is healthy enough to go in the season finale. The Cardinals will likely be so far out of contention that his presence won’t matter.Drew Stanton now gets the keys to the offense. Whether or not you think that should be the answer, it is. Arians vehemently made that clear after the game; they’re not going to third-stringer Blaine Gabbert.Despite Arians’ proclamation, I think he should go to Gabbert. Stanton is serviceable — when there is a semblance of protection. The Cardinals’ offensive line took a giant step back Sunday, and that doesn’t bode well for the interception-prone Stanton. Gabbert is the closest thing to a future QB on the Arizona roster. No David Johnson, no Carson Palmer, no chance. 48 Comments   Share   Dave Burns, Co-host of Burns & Gambo​I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the notion of traveling that far, spending that much time, energy and money only to get annihilated to the tune of a 33-0 final score. How deflating that must feel. The only shutout of the Bruce Arians era. First time they’ve been shutout since that 58-0 embarrassment in Seattle all those years ago. The only B.A. coached loss that was worse was the NFC Championship game.Nothing went right. Nothing. Offensive line got manhandled. No room to run for Adrian Peterson. Larry Fitzgerald was invisible. The defense looked more interested in sightseeing than getting the Rams off the field on third down. Their collective effort seems to wane especially when their offense appears over-matched. Phil Dawson missed another kick. And now for seemingly the 10th year in a row, the Rams have interrupted Carson Palmer’s season.If it’s me (and it’s not) I play Stanton vs. the 49ers and the Seahawks after the bye. The Cardinals are 1-4 in the conference so likely their only chance of making the playoffs — and I know how ludicrous that sounds — is winning the division. It’s worth seeing if Stanton can pull out a miracle or two. If not, desperation gives way to experimentation, and it’s time for Blaine Gabbert the rest of the way so you can see what you’ve got. It’s possible that’s the last we’ve seen of Palmer and if so it’s a shame that it ends like this. We all got more than we ever could have bargained for during his time here.
