“Has Andy Dalton done enough to earn one more year as the starting quarterback, and if not, who should be going forward?”
I think Andy has proven to be the starting QB for another year. People underestimate his leadership qualities and that goes a long way. He isn’t the most talented QB, but his leadership helps him a lot and I believe that is why the Bengals chose Andy Dalton in 2011.
Dalton is hot and cold; It’s up to the coaching staff to figure out what makes the difference. So far, they are stumped. Any alternative would face the same problem but from a less mature vantage point. Dalton is obviously qualified; the coaching staff has simply let him down.
Andy has done great things, but has also done bad things. He is a winner, more so than people give him credit for. The problem is the playoffs.
While I still stand by my belief that he can win a Super Bowl, he needs to start winning in the playoffs…….or we can look in the draft in a couple of years. Jameis Winston would do really good things.
