Not bashing Andy, but I am not so sure his numbers are better when adjusted for era.

I don't claim this is the most scientific way to compare but it is the quickest easiest way I can think of.

Last year was Andy's 8th season and the league wide interception percentage was 2.4.
In Palmers 8th season the league interception percentage was a full 25% higher (3.0 in 2010)
In Boomers 8th season it was 46% higher (3.5 in 1991)
And in Kenny's 8th season it was 125% higher (5.4 in 1978). Most people don't realize that in the early 70's when Anderson came into the league the passing numbers were actually worse than they were in the 60's and most of the 50's. It was the low point of the passing game in the modern era. In 1971 the average NFL team only completed 51% of passes for 2180 yards (155 per game) 15 tds and 21 interceptions. The league average passer rating was 62.2. Ten years earlier in 1962 NFL teams threw for 194 yards per game, 21+ tds and a 72.6 efficiency rating.

I said match up well didn't say better. They are all really close during their careers here.

One of the only things I think Dalton actually does better than Palmer.

I think Dalton moves better than Palmer, but Carson had that incredible arm.

Some people act like he was crippled when he was playing for the Cards, but he still had that cannon arm.  He could still throw those ridiculous deep outs all the way across the field on a rope.  Deep bombs downfield are more about timing than arm strength, but throwing those deep outs is all about the arm.

I don't know about when he was with the Cards, but when he was here, Carson was much better in the pocket than Dalton. As soon as Carson's back foot planted, he immediately started 'climbing the pocket' and he was able to manipulate the pocket just enough to get room. Dalton drops back and stays in his spot. When he does have to move, he has a habit of running stright out to his left and having to throw against his body. He literally has no ability to move around in the pocket and create space. 

Dalton is a good passer and he's one of the smartest QBs in the game today. If he could just somehow learn to manipulate the pocket, he would be very good.

I'm honestly surprised that Van Pelt hasn't fixed that yet.
Everything I post is Andy Dalton's fault, due to time ripples or something...  Smirk

Yep. It's blatantly obvious to anyone with eyes. You have to believe someone on the staff has seen it and i wonder if it's been addressed.
