Lewis still has faith in Palmer in 2010

There seems to be more questions than answers these days about Carson Palmer, who has had his issues all season. The Cincy Enquirer says though that his coach, Marvin Lewis, seems to feel that the QB can still get it done and will in 2010.

The circle continued unbroken Monday after the Bengals improved to 2-1 as questions were lobbed at coach Marvin Lewis about the state of the offense and Carson Palmer, Lewis continued to defend his quarterback, and concern about all 11 executing cohesively as a unit remains a work in progress. There was a new piece added to the chain – Lewis wasn’t about to apologize. He was annoyed over criticisms of the style in which they beat the Panthers 20-7. “Not too many teams have to make excuses for winning like that, but I guess we do. So, we will just move forward,” Lewis said. Lewis is among the minority in Bengaldom who aren’t concerned about Palmer, the offense or both. When asked if there were concerns about Palmer’s play over the last two games, Lewis said no. “When he has opportunities to throw the football and deliver the ball he does an excellent job,” Lewis said. “Yesterday he had some guys not quite do the things he needs them to do right. It all reflects back on the quarterback.”
