Andy Dalton

Andy Dalton is another under appreciated quarterback in Cincinnati. After being booed at the MLB Celebrity and Legends Softball game, the Bengals quarterback has to shake it off and refocus. Bengals fans quickly forget what the 1990’s looked like under Jeff Blake and Akili Smith.

Dalton fell off in 2014 after a strong 2013 season. In his four years with the Bengals he has posted the best winning percentage of any Bengals quarterback (63.3%), the second best completion percentage (61.6%), 99 touchdowns and 66 interceptions. He only misses third place by the slightest margin. If he gets over the 0-4 playoff hump, Bengals fans and media members would be off his back.

Dalton heads into his fifth season with only one new target in tight end Tyler Kroft, who the Bengals drafted in the third round this year. With everyone healthy and returning for 2015, the Bengals have arguably their best chance to make a deep run into the playoffs since Dalton took the offensive reins, but first he must first navigate the second toughest schedule in the NFL.
