FTP: Palmer's 'stache makes TV debut

By Josh Weinfuss

Flush the Pocket will be your daily morning dose of the Arizona Cardinals. It’ll recap the top story line from the previous day and give you a look at what everyone is saying locally and nationally.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- We all know it’s Movember.

Just look around anywhere and you’ll see men of all ages, shapes and sizes rocking mustaches. Some are legendary, some are pitiful, yes some are worthy of national TV.

On Tuesday afternoon, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was on ESPN’s "NFL Live," looking like this:

We all know it’s for a good cause, to support men’s health. And sometimes it’s just down right funny.

Even backup quarterback Drew Stanton got into the Movember mood.

When Palmer shaved last week, he came into the locker room with, what he calls, a “cop ‘stache.” Palmer said he’ll keep it for all of November but no longer.

“We’ve got a long season to go, so I don’t know how long I can get away with this.”
