Here are some more quotes about Dalton, as Bengals fans talk about their opinions on the current signal-caller for Cincinnati and whether or not he should be the future one.


In my opinion, Andy Dalton is young and lacks the talents he needs to become great. He is an average of a C- QB with talented receivers that help him with the C- rating. Without our good wide receivers, I see Dalton as a QB coach for TCU.”

-Larry Cassidy

Where do I start? Andy has all the weapons under the sun. Disgruntled over a loss? No! Disgruntled over leadership abilities! This team HAS to have leadership. SMART leadership!”

-Charles Mast

He’s an above-average NFL QB at best. He has great intangibles, inconsistent accuracy, poor pocket presence, and he doesn’t feel blitzes well at all. He has poor arm strength, pretty good mobility, but with no clue on when to tuck and run or scramble from the pocket and make plays. He can never be an elite or even good NFL starter because of his arm strength. No opposing defense respects his deep ball so they can pretty much sit on all underneath routes, which is why it always seems that our receivers are never open. Opposing defenses can pretty much play a red zone defense for all 100 yards. He hurts the offense because we play a west coast style offense, which is based on precision and timing that he lacks. Not to mention the fact that he locks onto reviewers, and if they are covered, he starts getting happy feet and it usually ends in a sack or turnover.”
