Unfortunately the NFL can be that way. The difference between a handful of bad plays vs. good games can have a direct effect on record. Carter was abused against teams like Denver and San Diego, and both those games were close enough that the bad plays stick out in that they contributed directly to the loss. I don't disagree with the quote here, but that's the reality of the NFL. Good plays win games, bad games lose them. You have to be accountable for both.
