This.

According to this board and the corsiRel QoC, a "strong opposition" means "the best offensive line from the other team". In reality, the "strongest opposition" is usually the best defensive line from the other team, which is rarely the same line. So far, I still never heard of any micro stats that would mesure which player is facing the best defensive lines.

The corsiRel QoC has some nice qualities, but it doesn't mesure the strenght of the opposition that a player is facing. All it says is if a "x player" is facing more offensively oriented or defensively oriented players. And it should surprise no one that DD is facing mostly defensively oriented players. That shouldn't be qualified as "weak opposition", no matter how often it's been repeated by the DD detractors on this board.
