Draft and develop a Quarterback:

I was willing to let the first two postseason loses slide, but number three may have been one step too far. I still have faith in Dalton, and as mentioned earlier, things can be done to help prevent the game falling onto his shoulders as much as possible.

Even so, I wouldn’t be against snagging up a QB in the 4th or 5th round and letting him develop for a couple of years, much like Ryan Mallet in New England. Then if Dalton really isn’t the answer to our problems, we have a plan B to fall back on.

These things are all hypothetical of course but it is going to be a very interesting offseason in Cincinnati, lets hope in a good way.
