Andrew Whitworth passes leadership baton to Andy Dalton

Andrew Whitworth has been the Bengals' biggest leader for much of his career in Cincinnati, but he may not be thinking his NFL career is nearing the end, at least a Bengal. Whitworth is set to become a free agent next year at the age of 34, and the Bengals just drafted two offensive tackles with their first two picks in the 2015 NFL Draft. That's made it very possible 2015 will be his final year in Cincinnati, which is probably a big reason why he wants quarterback Andy Dalton to assume his leadership role this year: Nugget from Marvin Lewis' news conference that most stuck out? Coach says...

Andy Dalton not bothered by booing at charity softball game

There was quite a commotion raised when Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was booed at a charity softball game during the MLB All-Star Game festivities earlier this month. Dalton didn't seem to be phased by it: Andy Dalton on getting booed at All-Star Game: "It wasn't everybody ... Don't think they all booed during my two home runs." #Bengals — Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) July 31, 2015 Andy Dalton on #ASG reception: "They didn't boo when I hit my two home runs."

Andy Dalton Attempts to Take the Next Step

There really is no question who the Bengals’ quarterback will be this season. The question is whether or not he can lead the team to the elusive playoff win Andy Dalton has become the most debated Bengals player in recent history. Outsiders may find this surprising considering he has started every game during which he has been on the team and never missed the post-season. In fact, he joins a pretty elite group of quarterbacks who have led their teams to the post-season in their first four years. If Dalton can lead the team to the post-season again this year, he would join Baltimore’s...

AJ McCaron's rise aided by Tom House

It may be the help of Tom House that leads to AJ McCarron taking hold of the Bengals' backup QB spot. One of, if not the biggest performers this offseason for the Bengals has been backup quarterback AJ McCarron. Drafted out of Alabama in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, McCarron spent most of last season rehabbing an elbow injury before making it onto the 53-man roster toward the end of the season. Just as he did as his rookie season ended, McCarron is expected to open 2015 as Andy Dalton's backup. That doesn't mean though that McCarron hasn’t made big strides this offseason, which...

Andy Dalton slighting tour is in full swing

ESPN''s Mike Sando created his annual NFL quarterback rankings list, using a tiered system he created with league personnel men. The overall input on the Bengals' signal-caller might leave some shaking their heads in disappointment. We get it NFL media -- you're not stoked on the Cincinnati Bengals' starting quarterback. Despite 40 regular season wins and playoff appearances in every season during which he has been an NFL player, Andy Dalton has set two major franchise single-season passing records and is this generation's Rodney Dangerfield. Those who have seen Dalton in big moments know...

Debate: Can A.J. McCarron realistically unseat Andy Dalton?

Andy Dalton has never faced a real threat in his four years as the Bengals' starter. However, A.J. McCarron has created quite a buzz this offseason. Is there any chance McCarron is being groomed as Dalton's successor? Earlier this summer, reports surfaced that Bengals coaches think A.J. McCarron is starting material. And players like Wallace Gilberry, Marvin Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick (see here, here and here) as well as offensive coordinator Hue Jackson (see here), have all heaped praise on McCarron. Meanwhile, Andy Dalton is getting booed at celebrity softball games in Cincinnati. After...

Dalton ranked below average in another QB ranking

How much does the media love hating on Andy Dalton... Too much. Another quarterback ranking and another placement of Andy Dalton way-below the middle of the pack. Steven Ruiz with SportsWire ranked each starting quarterback in the NFL and Andy Dalton came in at number 23 with a comment saying, "He has no great attributes." Do we believe Jay Cutler is deserving of the No. 18 spot or that Robert Griffin III should be ranked ahead of Dalton at number 22? Nope. So, let's not take this ranking too seriously, but is Andy Dalton really deserving of a ranking below 20? These rankings are somewhat...

Jason Marcum's Pre-Training Camp Bengals 53-man roster prediction

Cincy Jungle's Jason Marcum shares his predictions for how the entire Bengals' 53-man roster and practice squad will shape out in 2014 With the start of training camp now two weeks away, it's time for another stab at what the Bengals' final 53-man roster will look like in 2015. QUARTERBACK (2): Andy Dalton, AJ McCarron No surprises here. The only question is if Keith Wenning makes the practice squad as a developmental QB. He's not making the final roster barring Andy Dalton getting injured in the preseason. As long as AJ McCarron keeps impressing the coaching staff like he did in OTAs,...

Top ranked quarterback coach believes Dalton has yet to peak

Alex Peterman spoke with Todd Krueger, a former NFL player and current renowned quarterback coach. Krueger spoke rather favorably on Dalton and believes the Bengals leading man has yet to reach his full potential in the NFL.

On the other hand, he's struggled with consistency and taking his game to the next level, leaving many fans and pundits alike to argue whether he can be...

A.J. Green Contract: Latest News on Talks with Bengals

Keep track here for the latest regarding wide receiver A.J. Green and his contract negotiations with the Cincinnati Bengals. One of the more impressive "changes" by this organization, since "the victory" by Marvin Lewis in 2011, is the Bengals' long-term commitment with their core players.

This commitment was reiterated again this week when the Cincinnati Bengals announced that an agreement was reached with Andy Dalton on a six-year extension. Where were you when you heard? I was at...

Fantasy Football Cincinnati Bengals Preview 2015

We preview the 2015 Cincinnati Bengals from a fantasy football perspective. When it comes to Bengals quarterbacks, it's Andy Dalton and everyone else. There's no quarterback competition in Cincinnati, nor is there reason to believe Dalton won't be starting every game in 2015 as he's done in each of his first four seasons. Having never missed a start in his career, Dalton was quietly a reliable fantasy football QB in his first three seasons. That changed in 2014. 'Elite' and 'Andy Dalton' in same sentence? Dalton finished the 2013 season ranked fifth in FF points by a QB. . At the end of...

Chiefs' Alex Smith ranked ahead of Colin Kaepernick, Andy Dalton in QB rankings

It's July and there is no football which means we have some time to fill. Which also means we must rank the quarterbacks in this slow time. Sports Illustrated's Andy Benoit ranked every quarterback in the league in a list you can see here. Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith comes in at No. 18, which is three spots ahead of the quarterback who replaced him in San Francisco (that would be Colin Kaepernick). He is two spots ahead of Bengals QB Andy Dalton and one spot ahead of Raiders QB Derek Carr, who seems to be ranked very high. In fact, Benoit says the Raiders have found their franchise...
