Palmer knows he's blamed for interceptions, even if they're not his fault

Carson Palmer's numbers aren't pretty so far in his first season in Arizona.

Through six games — three wins and three losses — Palmer has seven touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. Only Eli Manning (15) has thrown more interceptions.

Whether or not the interceptions are his fault or the fault of a receiver running the wrong route, the blame always falls on the quarterback, and Palmer says he accepts that fact.

As he put it, "That's the quarterback position — when you win, you're the hero. When you lose, you're the bum."
