Cardinals | Carson Palmer, others struggling to pick up offense

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system is the most complex and difficult offense he's had to learn in his career. He's only completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,010 yards and four touchdowns and six interceptions. The Cardinals rank 18th in the NFL in passing, 26th in rushing and 27th in overall offense. "It's the whole offense," WR Andre Roberts said. "He's (Palmer) not played well at times, receivers have not played as well at times, the offensive line, running backs. It's a team effort. Especially on offense, you've got to have all 11 guys on the same page." WR Larry Fitzgerald said there are "a lot of nuances" in the system, but if done right, "it's pretty invincible." Palmer has been sacked 10 times and will have a new left tackle, OT Bradley Sowell, protecting his blind side in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: There may still be hope for Palmer and the rest of Arizona's offensive production, but time is running out. The offensive line must do a better job at protecting Palmer and opening lanes for the running game. the Panthers' front seven will pose a tough test again this weekend.
