What to make of this weird stat line ?

Posted in comments how it should of looked, one day will figure it out .... maybe LOL Palmer's last 3 seasons compared to Dalton's first 2 seasons under/over 21 points scored Palmer’s last 3 season’s 2008 with Defence ranked 12th – 13 under 21, 2 over and one at 21 Opponents under/over – 7 under 21, 9 over 21 2009 with Defence ranked 4th = 10 under 21, 6 over 21 Opponents under/over – 11 under 21, 5 over 21 2010 with Defence ranked 15th – 9 under 21, 5 over 21 and two at 21 Opponents under/over – 5 under 21, 11 over 21 Dalton’s first 2 seasons 2011 with Defence ranked 7th – 6 under 21, 10 over 21 Opponents under/over – 11 under 21, 5 over 21 2012 with Defence ranked 6th – 6 under 21, 10 over 21 Opponents under/over – 9 under 21, 7 over 21 Palmer’s first 2 seasons playing - 2004 8 under 21, 8 over 21 Opponents 6 under, 10 over 2005 4 under, 10 over and 2 at 21 scored Opponents 8 under, 8 over Carson Palmer only scored over 21 points in 10 games through 2005 with probably the best ever Offence in Bengals History. I’ll admit I was surprised as I was expecting it to be around the 13-14 game mark being over 21 !!!! We had probably the best O/L in Bengals History, Palmer, Chad, TJ, Henry, Rudi and Perry (his one season healthy) all playing at the top of there game and still only managed better than 21 points in 10 games !!!! And we won 11 that year …. I had to look up 2006 and 2007 after seeing the above results and …. Palmer’s 3rd and 4th year playing …. 2006 – 7 under 21, 9 over 21 Opponents – 9 under 21, 7 over 21 2007 – 7 under 21, 6 over 21 and 3 at 21 Opponents – 6 under 21, 10 over 21 In Carson’s time here he only managed once to score over 21 points in 10 games through a season. Dalton in his first 2 years has equaled that total twice !!!! To be honest, this has thrown me lol Not sure what you can make of this weird stat line. And Dalton has done it the hard way with an Offence that is still being rebuilt from the ground up !!!! We have no running game and only a #1 WR yet Dalton has equaled Carson’s best Season on throwing over 21 points/game twice in his first two seasons !!!! Just the over 21 points/game scored number’s : Palmer’s – 8, 10, 9, 6, 2, 6, 5 (2004-2010) Dalton’s – 10, 10 (2011-2012) Opponents – 10, 8, 7, 10, 9, 5, 11 (2004-2010) Opponents – 5, 7 (2011, 2012) I guess in answer to your question, I’d have to say yes as Dalton has not only equaled Carsons best year, but he has done it two for two with an O/L that has been far from stable in both years and only a #1 WR with no running game to speak of as such. Impressive to say the least. Especially 2011’s 10 games with over 21 points scored as we went against at least 10 Top 10 Defences through those 16 games. Which means we scored over 21 points against at least 4 of them !!!! All I can think of is what will happen when we get a good running game, a #2 WR to go with AJ and a healthy Sanu at the slot position and an O/L without a revolving door at one position or other !!!!
