Warner: Best fit for Cards would be Palmer, not Bulger

With the Cardinals and Seahawks both still needing quarterbacks, we are starting to expect the two NFC West teams to compete for the services of Kevin Kolb once the lockout ends. The fallback to Kolb could be Marc Bulger, especially for the Cardinals who were believed to be interested in Bulger last year.

Like Kurt Warner before he joined Arizona, Bulger is a cerebral and accurate quarterback that took a pounding over the years. Bulger seems like a good fit for Ken Whisenhunt’s offense. Bulger’s career is at the point there are doubts he can be a starter again, just like Warner when he arrived in Arizona.

Despite all those similarities, Warner doesn’t think Bulger is the best fit for the Cardinals. Given the choice on the Dan Patrick Show between Kolb, Bulger, Donovan McNabb, and Carson Palmer, Warner said he thought Palmer would be the best fit for the Cardinals offense.

Considering Warner’s knowledge of Bulger and Whisenhunt’s offense, it’s an opinion we put a lot of stock into. We’re not convinced the Bengals will move Palmer, but it’s fair to wonder if Whisenhunt has heard Warner’s take. And whether he agrees with it.
