I think they had a specific gameplan to get Chad involved early and often, but the whole plan changed when Palmer got hurt. Im sure they worked on specific plays during the week that Kitna didnt work on. You cant expect a backup to come in in the biggest game for the franchise in 15 years and have him deliver the way Palmer would have. What did Rudi end up with, like 14 carries or something? I guarantee he would have got more carries if Palmer was in there, which would have loosened up the defense a bit. Im not saying Cincy would have won, but it would have/could have been a whole different ballgame. Im pretty sure Palmer would have audibled a few times to get the ball to Chad here and there, which is something Kitna doesnt do.Bottom line is we will never know what would have happened had Palmer not got hurt. Chad is frustrated and understandably so. He shouldnt have scheduled a session on that day, though.
