If you recall, former Indianapolis Colts vice chairman and General Manager Bill Polian has been one of the strongest supporters of Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. Prior to the 2011 NFL draft while the status of Peyton Manning was still uncertain following neck surgery, Polian elected to use Indy’s first round draft pick on offensive lineman Anthony Castonzo.

But if Polian could go back in time, Andy Dalton would not be a Cincinnati Bengal.

I’ve told this to Marvin and Mike so it’s no state secret – one of my biggest regrets was not taking him in the first round and leaving him for (Cincinnati). But if anybody got him, I’m glad that my friends at the Bengals did.

He is a terrific leader, he’s very, very bright, he’s got more than adequate arm strength, and he’s a fighter. He looks like an altar boy or a choir boy, but plays with a crowbar in his hands.  He’s got a lot of killer in him which is really great.  That’s what you want in a quarterback.  I’ve heard people compare him to Bernie Kosar, but I think he’s much more athletic than Bernie, and I think that he has a better arm than Bernie.  He’s a tough character and he’s a winner.

 

It will be interesting to here what he thinks about the Bengals while he’s at practice today.
