I've just always been of the opinion that they work out in the wash. Most QB with high INTs is because they throw inacurrate balls and/or make poor decisions. Not just because it is something/someone else's fault.
The difference between Carson and Andy is that Andy is only in his 2nd year, and he seems to be progressing other than a few extra picks. His production numbers (63.9% and 7.49 per attempt) are great. Carson had a couple seasons where he threw 20 picks, and in 2010 he was just awful. He wasn't moving the offense anymore, and he was statistically mediocre or bad in almost every game from 2008-2010.

He had 5-6 games during that span that boosted his stats, but overall he was bad for quite some time. Andy still has upside. If he finishes with 20+ picks this year (I don't think he will), it's worthy of concern, but I think it's silly to start talking about drafting a QB next year (which some people are doing). All QBs not named Rodgers, Brady or Manning tend to struggle without a solid rushing attack. Palmer sure did.

If a QB consistantly throws a high number of picks it is because he is making bad throws, if he doesn't he is being smart and acurate (But I have been told otherwise)

If a RB consistantly has a high average YPC he is a good RB, if he consistantly has a low average he is not so good. (But I have been told otherwise)

If a DE consistantly has a high number of sacks he is pretty good at applying pressure of the QB, if he doesn't then he isn't. (But I have been told otherwise)

Terrence Newman got 2 INTs this past weekend and I considered that a good thing. (But I have been told otherwise).

Tipped balls indicate he's throwing the ball either :
too late
too early
too low(at the line)
too high

What I'm guessing, is that this whole WR by committee carp is messing him up. He can't get in sync with anyone outside of AJ, and he's making too many inaccurate throws because of it.

Dalton in my opinion is not good, he should have had 4 ints in the Denver, he is just the best we have, I think.

I don't see both of those things happening. If Bradshaw has a killer game, we're screwed, cuz Eli's gonna get his.

4. Interceptions are not a good way to judge a CB...... Sure they are, ask Larry Brown.......but yes they are a factor but not the be all.

3. A RB is not responsible for his YPC........To a large degree but you can't dismiss the Oline from the equation.

2. Sacks really don't tell how good a DE pressures a QB.........They're a good indicator but it's possible to register an effective pressure or hurry withou notching an actual sack.

1. A season is over after 8 games
.........It's not over, but this Bengals team ain't going anywhere and they're gonna lose a bunch more.


In summation, you've done well to learn football is the ultimate team sport, stats require proper context in order to really understand what is going on and that after 8 games when you're 3-5 with gaping personnel holes and a terrible HC, you're toast.

Well done.

I'm glad u said "we", cuz from where I sit, u do it too. I know you think I do, but of course I don't see it that way.

In general, you made fair points above, but the first can def be countered.

For example:

If a QB consistantly throws a high number of picks it is because he is making bad throws, if he doesn't he is being smart and acurate (but I have been told otherwise).......Fair enough, but to that I would reply.....

If a defense doesn't have to account for a run game and only has one real receiving threat to worry about, they are much more likely to intercept some passes......Some folks tend to dismiss such context, I'm not one of them.

Also, when you talk about "not every inaccurate pass is intercepted....it all comes out in the wash"....That's just too simplistic. You're blowing off all sorts of stuff in the name of keeping something with a ton of variable simpler than it really is. Stuff like, good defense, one dimensional offenses, coaching, receiver play, offensive line play. And even all that is still leaving out one's own defense and how they can put an offense up against it, shorten the playbook and make them even more one dimensional due to never stopping anybody.

So no, you can't just throw out overly basic analysis that blatantly ignores so many vital factors and stand behind it like it is more than it is. Ppl who care to delve deeper into it are going to see through that as the shoddy logic that it is.

6. When the team calls a play that fans don't like, it's Marvin Lewis calling the plays. When they call plays that fans like (Washington Game), it's Gruden or Zimmer.

7. When the Bengals make the playoffs, some invisible behind-the-scenes Brown family member is finally calling the shots.

This board has taught me that everything is the fault of the QB. Unless that QB's name is Carson Palmer.

You exaggerate what has been said (as evidenced by how you phrase everything).

But I'm 100% certain your #1 is 100% correct when properly stated: A season is over at 8 games if the team is 3-5, terrible, and is behind Pitt and Balt with no tiebreakers.

To be underachieving means you must first be talented. So you by calling them underachieving have already admitted their talent. Sometimes all one needs is a boost of confidence to get them over a hump or in a groove. They very well could have gotten this in the Giants game.

With this young talent that should only continue to improve there is not a team in the NFL they cannot beat. If they continue to play at a high level there is no reason this season cannot still be a success.
