Let's look at stats. This past year, Carson threw for 4131 yards, while Romo threw for 4211. Romo's completion % was worse by .5%. Romo threw for 36 TDs with a 6.9 TD%. Carson threw for 26 with 3.5 TD%. Romo had 19 INTs. Carson had 20. Surrounding cast? Chad + TJ > Owens + Crayton. Sure, we have Witten, and our running game was better. However, Carson arguably had the better line. He was only sacked 17 times, while Romo was sacked 24 times, and I'm pretty sure we all know Romo is more mobile than Palmer.

True...Witten, a top 3 all around TE and a better, more explosive running game are insignificant enough to just toss in like that.

I'd say the O-lines are a wash, but the difference in the running game is huge.

Palmer is a beast, but the Bengals ask ALOT of this guy. He was basically asked to make up for a hideous D, no running game, and work with some key injuries on the O-line...though the backups played very admirably.

Personally, I think he could be a legend if he was a stable franchise...he's got time to become a legend but it's just so hard to get serious hype and national love when so many things are going wrong for a franchise. I believe that of most QB prospect with NFL skills, but a guy with Palmers skill level deserves to be on a franchise thats a little less ridiculous.

They have had their stuff together for like...one season...and 1 60 yard pass into his first playoff game that season he suffers a major injury because someone falls on him. Not cool.

IF the Bengals can manage to turn this around, Palmer could re-write some records.
Could imagine Palmer with Randy Moss? Palmer's cannon arm and accuracy with Moss' size and speed?
I think Palmer's arm strength is better than Brady's

Quick reminder. Carson's wide receivers for the past few years have been Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

Yeah a great tandem but any one of them are not as good as Randy Moss. And they are better at different teams. When it comes to running the streak routes none are better than Moss. Ask Brady and Culepepper about it.

Bengals O-line was beat up and injured. if you want to find out why Palmer was sacked 7 less times look at his interceptions - he was forcing the ball out quickly to avoid the rush. And throwing around the running game so nonchalantly is laughable.

If I'm a coach or an owner, I'm happy either way - Romo or Palmer. But if you're going to compare then at least do it honestly. Romo was in a better situation this year than Palmer.
