It is well known to Bengals fans that Andy Dalton had a successful rookie campaign by any critics standards. But where does one point to in order to attribute this early level of greatness? Look no further than offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

Grudens playing experience ultimately benefits Dalton in a huge way. Gruden can relate to his QB and knows how to run the offense from behind the helmet as well as the headset.
