I hardly ever put you in your place even when it would be easy!! You haven't given any facts yourself except
Peelle & you are tight(: Palmer has seen plenty of action for a rookie!!
Pudge you enjoy making things sound complicated and people believe it.....I'd
prefer to break it down to easy, but their have been many issues where you admitted I knew more than you expected.
Its true I will occassionally give a prediction for fun just based on gut instinct, but Roddy White & Palmer I had reason's
to believe. My father went to Clemson so I hear about everybody from that school and take in about one game a year
and Roddy went to high school in Charlston close to where my parents live. (I don't go to games now because my folks can't make it anymore )
Palmer has always been an improver. He's a smart guy so unless he just starts feeling the NFL is taking too much out of his body my feelings are based on his consistent improvement.
Any other rookie you'd about say shouldn't be on the field. Here's a small article taken from the Clemson website,
as you know Clemson doesn't produce many pro's. They don't throw the ball 40 times and Tight ends are not their specialty. I'm talking about Palmer catching about 35-40 catches a year after Tony leaves, that's special for a walk on to me! He'll work very hard for it!!
It will be better than Peelle's average of about 10 a year..... He's already caught 2 more passes as a rookie than
your hero Peelle had when he got hurt. 5 receptions for a free agent rookie tight end, isn't all bad after 9 games.
He's got as many Tds as Douglas and 1 more than Jenkins.........----its a prediction, but come on, what room
are you in if your the smartest (:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UAS1lXYSWY
Palmer came to Clemson after a decorated career as a two-sport athlete at Parkview High School in Lilburn, GA. During his high school basketball career, he averaged 15 points and 11 rebounds per game in his three-year varsity career and was named to the all-county team as a senior.
On the gridiron, he played for the state championship as a junior and was named all-state as a senior after totaling 21 catches for 385 yards and five touchdowns. After high school, Palmer had scholarship offers for both basketball and football. While his basketball offers were mostly from smaller schools, he received plenty of attention in football. He looked mainly at Clemson and Virginia as his two most likely destinations.
"I liked how Clemson and Virginia both used the tight end, but I picked Clemson because I thought it gave me the best opportunity to play," said #86. "And Clemson is just two hours from home. I also liked the atmosphere at Clemson."
Palmer made an immediate impact when he arrived on campus, as he had five catches for 30 yards as a freshman while playing all 13 games, including three as a starter. He saw more playing time than any other first-year freshman tight end in school history.
He earned his first career start in a nationally-televised Thursday night game at Virginia Tech in 2006. "That might have been the most memorable game of my career, because I could not hear a single snap count the entire game. Virginia Tech is the loudest opposing stadium I have been to."
Palmer had consistent sophomore and junior seasons. He had 13 receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown as a sophomore and 12 catches for 160 yards and three scores in 2008.
The most memorable play prior to 2009 for Palmer came last season at #24 Florida State. With Clemson trailing 13-10, Cullen Harper lofted a pass to Palmer in the endzone that gave the Tigers a 17-13 lead.
Palmer has also seen his production and opportunities increase in the 2009 season. With a young group of wideouts, he has gotten more opportunities and has made the most of them. Palmer has had at least one catch in each of the last six contests, including five catches for 65 yards at Maryland and five receptions for a career-high 74 yards and a touchdown at Miami (FL).
