The only free agent QB would be Jay Cutler other than that there isn’t much else out there really. I believe if a QB like Brent Hundley falls to the second you have to get pull the trigger.

This roster will reach it’s ripest stage in the next couple years and each week it’s obvious what position is holding the offense back. I believe they have to bring in a capable veteran that can manage a game and an early round rookie.

It’s apparent Dalton’s progression as a QB has halted and some would argue that he has regressed in some areas.  I feel that play calling has something to do with it as well and Jay Gruden getting a head coaching job might be the best thing for Dalton.

I don’t know how much Dalton has done to EARN another year as a  starting quarterback, but I don’t think there are a whole lot of  better options out there.  Bringing in someone new could hurt a roster  with playoff hopes.

    Like Mark Scherleth said on ESPN Mike and Mike, ” If the Bengals had Andrew Luck they would have best record in AFC” Dalton is the limiting factor on how far this team can and will go. Like what was said above though, he’s our best option for now. I personally would take Cutler over him in a heartbeat. That will never happen though, management and coaches are firmly in Dalton’s corner. Sad but true.

      There isn’t anything sad about it Randy. Cincinnati has a very good qb and a fantastic leader that will be just fine. I’m a big Bengals fan since the qb’s name was Greg Cook and I know that you need to support someone as capable as Andy Dalton. Quit crying around and be happy that we have a shot at transposing the record that the great Carson Palmer left us his last year. You do remember Carson Palmer, right?
