If you were to start an NFL franchise and had to pick between Palmer and Big Ben as your staring franchise quarterback, with all biases aside who would you pick? I honestly think Carson has one of the prettiest throws in the league and when healthy and gets in his groove like now he can be one of the premier quarterbacks in the league. He is also more prone to be a reason the Bengals would lose a game and doesn’t manage the game as well as other quarterbacks in his class. Big Ben on the other hand might not be as flashy or your prototypical quarterback but the guy gets it done, when comparing overall records Big Ben is by far and none ahead of Carson. Big Ben has also had a better surrounding cast his whole career with not as much put on his shoulders. I think its a fair question to ask by fans of both teams and each side would have a fair argument. My question is who would you rather have?
