USC Morning Buzz: Carson Palmer Delivers A Hot Take

Carson Palmer wasn’t known for controversial opinions when he was at USC or in the NFL.

But that changed when he said Bengals QB Joe Burrow is more consistent than Patrick Mahomes during a podcast with his brother, Jordan.

“I think Joe is the best quarterback in the league,” Carson Palmer said. “I know Patrick (Mahomes) is phenomenal, but I just think Joe’s more consistent. He’s more consistent. He’s more accountable to run the system and the play that’s called and not feel like, `Well, he didn’t win last time and get open for me, so I’m gonna do it with my feet,’ and then before you know it, you’re sacked for a four-yard loss because you tried to make two or three guys miss.

“Joe is just… talk about not having a weakness. Mentally strong, physically tough, accurate, can throw it far enough, fast enough, gets the ball out quick, and then he can actually do a lot with his legs.”

Of course, Palmer did generate some headlines in 2021 when he said Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin could be a “wild card” for the Trojans’ head-coaching vacancy, so maybe he’s becoming better at generating some news.

  • USC announced Sunday night that it will hold practice today. This will be the practice that was postponed two weeks ago.
  • Former USC guard Reese Dixon-Waters visited San Diego State over the weekend.
  • Four-star wide receiver Andrew Marsh of Katy, Texas, visited USC over the weekend.

    1. The fumble misattribution was the last straw…..
      [Actually, putting Mario Williams in the game to field the last kick at the Cotton Bowl shoulda been the last straw…]…..


  2. Scooter and everyone,

    I hope everyone had a great Easter and Passover. SC had a great weekend. The baseball team swept San Diego St and the Women’s Water Polo team beat the Stanford Injuns 17-12. The baseball stadium seemed a little fuller than normal. I’m going to the ugly game on Sunday April 23. Starts at 4 pm. If you do decide to go, I would suggest getting there early. If SC takes the Oregon St series, then it will be a good series against ugly.

      1. So Cal,

        Don’t let General Admission scare you. You get there an hour early, you will get a good seat that you want. You never know, you just might get the best seat in the house and that is right next to me. LOLOLOL. I usually sit on the left side of the press box as you look towards the field in the 13th row. End seat. Go to a game.


  3. Hot Take? Seems like just his personal observation. I know at LSU he was the best,but I do not watch nfl so I have no opinion on either qb.
