Andy Dalton: 2016 NFL MVP

The QB position for the Bengals is very much settled and very much in good shape.  Andy Dalton has the talent, arm, mobility and experience to be one of the best in the league this year. Hopefully, he doesn’t break any more bones attempting to tackle someone this year. In

In case of another injury, the Bengals are fortunate to have a backup QB that saw extended regular season and playoff action last year.  A.J. McCarron proved himself to be a solid QB and caught the attention of many teams in need of a starting QB this offseason.

If Dalton plays every game, the Bengals will be in a position to win the Division and home field throughout the Playoffs. Yet, Dalton won’t have the comfortable surroundings of WR’s he knows well.  He will have to navigate through audibles, be patient with check down passes and take the deep opportunities. If he uses the running game to his advantage, this Bengals team will score a ton of second half points.

No one really knows exactly what the methodology of the 2016 Bengals offense will be. What do we know? If Dalton limits turnovers and returns to form, he will have a real chance to be MVP this year.
