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.
