Every year we have been waiting for the return of Carson Palmer. Which has been running a similar course as to waiting for this Michael Imperioli cop show to really hit with the networks. Because Palmer — much like Imperioli — is somebody that you cannot help rooting for. And besides, I watched him back in the day.

Six NFL head coaches decided to bench their starting quarterbacks in Week 2, some looking for any type of offensive spark. While he had several reasons to do so, Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn’t one of them.

With Week 2 almost in the books, here’s a look at a few key statistics and notable numbers from Sunday’s action from George Li on the NFL Network research desk.
I think you can actually use Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension to your advantage. Here’s how.

You all may have your Christmas day, your St. Patrick’s day or your Talk Like a Pirate day — but my favorite holiday occurs when Gil Brandt hands over his fantasy football draft board.
For my money, the Rams have to start Sam Bradford. If they thought enough about him to give him $50 million up front and put the future of the organization in his hands as the first pick, how do you not play him?

It’s the morning after … nine games were on the NFL preseason slate on Saturday night, so let’s take a bullet-point look on thoughts and observations from around the league.
NFL.com Fantasy Live analyst Dave Dameshek really lamented over which sleeper to pick during a recent segment we filmed, before finally settling on Ravens QB Joe Flacco.

On the day after 11 games filled the NFL preseason schedule, here’s a look at what stories are on the radar.
Eagles QB Kevin Kolb might be one of the more over-hyped players heading into the fantasy season. I have been rather ambivalent towards him this season. I know, he looked awesome in two games when the Eagles were blown out by the Saints and crushed the Chiefs. So I have long felt that there are better options at quarterback.
QBs Matt Moore and Joe Flacco are a couple of breakout candidates, but they had different results on Thursday night.

The Ravens look like an elite team. Offenisvely, this is the best Ravens team in recent memory.
Imagine Kevin Kolb‘s situation for a moment. You are replacing a Hall of Fame quarterback in a town that has a — what’s a pleasant way to put this — passionate fan base. And you have a former No. 1 pick looking over your shoulder looking for playing time.
No pressure, kid.
The Ravens signed Marc Bulger as an insurance policy to back up QB Joe Flacco — a sound investment strategy for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. But Flacco doesn’t seem happy about it.
