Lewis says Palmer 'not peanut brittle'Cincinnati Bengals
08/28/2006 10:29 AM The Dayton Daily News reports it's inevitable that Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer is going to get hit. But head coach Marvin Lewis is convinced Palmer will get back up when he's knocked down. Once that happens, WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh can breathe a little easier. "We want to keep the quarterback clean," Lewis said. "The quarterback is going to get touched. He's been touched already and he's going to get touched again. That's the way it is. He's not going to fall apart. He's not peanut brittle out there. This is a big, strapping person, and he's going to be fine. We can put all of T.J.'s worries to rest the new team spokesman."
