The discrepancy between the number of top defenses played between the two quarter backs surprised me when I actually looked up the numbers. 21 for Carson to 8 for Ben...
It is a season overall not a game here or there. If Carson only has good numbers against good teams he must really suck against bad teams to drop his rating so far. Sounds like a very inefficient, inconsistent QB. Maybe he has a focus problem.
