How Carson Palmer shifts the odds
There's an old adage in sports that you can't win without a star. But the exchange rate changes wildly based on the sport. An example: if Albert Pujols was traded to the Kansas City Royals tomorrow, for nothing at all, the Royals would expect a projected win increase of about 7-9 wins. If Peyton Manning was traded to the Carolina Panthers for nothing at all, their win increase could be projected at 5-7 wins. Think about that. In one sport, maybe a team avoids last place. In another, a team leapfrogs 40 percent of the league.
Now, take a back-end look at that draft order. Only one team has a dicey QB situation -- the Seattle Seahawks, a team drafting so low only because of its playoff upset and Marshawn Lynch's Richter Scale run. The lesson: Great quarterbacking is dictating outcomes in this league to an extraordinary degree.
On the topic of the article, I'm not an ESPN Insider, so I don't know where the author is guessing he might go.
Take heart Leslie, you want to look good, find the answer at QB. Not an easy proposition for you, but probably the most important aspect of your future success.
