Also Suit... I'm sure you know, I just thought I would mention that Ben played wide receiver and tight end until his senior year in high school because the coaches son played quarterback. Ben has only been behind center for like six years of his life.

Carson on the other hand... just like his brother was bred to play quarterback, and has all his life. Just look at the way he functions... you can tell he was meant to play quarterback. He has been well coached, and been to all the camps.

Here is my comparison up to this point in their careers...

I think Carson is a better thrower of the football, and probabally has a better grasp of what the defense is trying to do. I also think he understands his playbook and his progression better. He is the better stand in the pocket "drop back" quarterback.

I think Ben is a better scrambler, and has a better feel for the pass rush. I think Ben has better leadership qualities, and a stronger will to win. I also think that Ben is much better at making something out of nothing or making the awkward throws on the run, or during well covered or busted plays. I think Ben is the better playaction quarterback too.

Palmer just picked up reading defenses in the latter part of last year, so I'd say Ben is ahead of him in that category, too.

Ya have to take into consideration that Ben has one less year in the league and didn't have the luxury of sitting a year and learning. Ben is the better QB IMO. Ben makes better decisions, has more poise and moxy and is more mobile than Carson. Ben has only 1 legitimate WR to throw to, Carson has 3. Mark my words, Ben IS the cream of the crop in the AFCN and will continue to be for many years.
In Ben we trust
