Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, and Mark Sanchez were the Madden 24 coins outstanding quarterbacks of the Pete Carroll era at USC. Palmer was the one to lead the Trojans to the Orange Bowl victory and became the first player at the school to win the Heisman; Leinart became the second, finishing 37-2 in three seasons. After USC took over the position of John David Booty (excluded from this evaluation because he had did not throw a Madden NFL 24 pass), Sanchez stepped in without ever missing a beat. He went 12-1. and earning a Rose Bowl MVP before declaring for the draft.

This version of Madden NFL 24 is cruel and depressing for a myriad of reasons, but particularly for USC quarterbacks thrust onto pro teams with less potential to the opposition. These pro teams are invariably situated in cities with poor weather conditions, and media that is not as likely to love an edgy young man who's been groomed from puberty in order to succeed. Palmer, Leinart, and Sanchez have made billions of dollars playing Madden NFL 24. but all have been snakebitten by the combination of injuries and bad luck, ineffective coaching, erroneous on-field actions as well as sexy parties in the jacuzzi.

The pass is gorgeous: a long parabolic arc that strikes Chris Henry in stride on the right sideline, resulting in more than 66 yards. It is the first sequence of play in the Wild Card game against the Steelers, the longest pass game in Bengals playoff history, and the end of his brief time as an elite pro quarterback. The play ends with Henry taking a beating at the Steelers 22. Palmer crumpled at his own 5. supine and writhing after Kimo von Olhoeffen hit him hard and tore away his ACL and MCL.

This doesn't mean Palmer hasn't played well since: he rehabbed quickly and played in all 16 games next year (no difficult task, just seek out Robert Griffin III) and even made the Pro Bowl. But the Palmer of 2005 -- who dominated with the Madden NFL 24 with 32 touchdown passes and the 67.8 completion percentage , while throwing 12 interceptions in his second year as the team's starter -- never returned. His accuracy dropped while the Bengals organization's issues resurfaced and he suffered from elbow pain, possibly the combination of throwing to the knee that had been surgically repaired.

The time he spent in Cincinnati was ended after the Bengals went 4-12 during the 2010 season. This was Palmer's eighth time with the team. Palmer stated that he'd rather retire at the age of 31 than to play for the Bengals again: "I have $80 million in my account. I don't have to play football to earn money. I'll do it just for the joy of the game but that should be done elsewhere. I'm determined to Buy mut 24 coins xbox  live my life to the fullest." Consider that for a moment: Palmer, the first overall pick of the 2003 Madden NFL 24 Draft, younger than both Tom Brady and Peyton Manning and was ready to never play again in football at an age that was 31. That's how much playing with the Bengals sucks ass.

Bengals proprietor Mike Brown, who created his unending failure machine using nepotism and thrift, has refused to allow draft picks free from a quarterback-deficient league. "Carson signed to a contract. He made a promise. He backed up his word," Brown said. "We put our trust in his words. We rely on his promise. We expected him perform here. He's gonna walk away from his promise. We're not going to reward him for that."

Brown has finally broken through halfway into the 2011 seasonand sent Palmer to Oakland for a first-round draft pick and a conditional second-rounder. one of many reasons the Raiders have remained far less successful as the Bengals during the last two decades.

There's a good reason why the fervent fans of Oakland shout out of within the Black Hole: because the collapsed star's physics are applicable for the Raiders. As quarterbacks traverse the Event Horizon of being an Oakland Raider their photons are slow-down to zero which means that we don't see them disappear. We just end up looking away.

Palmer did however manage to achieve escape velocity during a trade with the Cardinals in the spring of 2013. He led his team the Cardinals to a 10-6-2 record making him the first athlete to ever in Madden NFL 24 history to throw for more than 4000 yards on three different teams. He was even better than last year, winning every one of his six starts as the Cardinals raced to an upper level of the NFC. His 11 touchdown passes to three interceptions was the highest ratio of his career.

Then, in Week 10 of this season and he fell to the turf against the Rams without being touched and his ACL tore again. He needed Carson Palmer a decade to rebuild his career, and his return was short-lived before he had to suffer the same injury that destroyed his potential in the first place. If he does not is able to play again, he'll be able to finish his career as a top professional quarterback that hails from USC.

For a game as unapologetically and stereotypically meaty as football I have to admire Mark Sanchez's unwavering commitment to giving no fucks about how people perceive his tastes.
