Surprisingly enough, it was defensive end Michael Johnson came to Dalton’s defense after the game:

“I don’t appreciate that, speaking for me,” he said. “I don’t appreciate it. Stay with us and believe with us. That’s what you’re here for (if) you’re here to support (us). If something bad happens, that’s not our plan to go out there and have something bad (happen). The negativity doesn’t help. Stay positive, stay encouraging — we’ll fight. They’ll know we’ll fight. Just stick with us a while.”

I say “surprisingly” because one would think it would be players on defense who were angered the most by Dalton’s turnovers, as they often put the defense in a bad position while leaving them on the field for longer than they should be. The fans may not be in favor of Dalton, but this tells me the team is still behind him through thick and thin and will defend him in situations like this.
