Andy Dalton and Bengals at crossroads; Zach Mettenrberger the answer?

Andy Dalton and Bengals at crossroads; Zach Mettenrberger the answer?

IF Andy Dalton falters in 2014, the Bengals may be forced to replace him. Could it by LSU signal-caller Zach Mettenberger? The debate continues as to whether Andy Dalton is the franchise quarterback of the future for the Cincinnati Bengals. ESPN's Mike Sando polled a number of NFL analysts and executives on some the league's most notable QBs who are entering a make-or-break point in their career. Here's what ESPN Scouts Inc.'s Matt Williamson and an anonymous NFL GM said of Dalton: "I think he is what he is, and he will never change," Williamson said. "He will be too good to cut and not...

Andy Dalton, Is he a franchise Quarterback?

Andy Dalton, Is he a franchise Quarterback?

The debate lives on. ESPN takes a look at how Dalton ranks with his QBR over the first 16 games of his career compared to all other QB's that have started since the 2006 season. In a recent piece by ESPN's Mike Sando, "crossroads" quarterbacks were the focus and where there is quarterback discussion, you know the Bengals Andy Dalton will be in the mix. The meat of the article begins with if teams can tell what to expect from a QB's career from how that QB plays right away. With data collected over the past 8 years, some believe there is a way to provide a lens into a guys career from his...

Bengals hosted and/or worked out Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas

Bengals hosted and/or worked out Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas

According to Aaron Wilson with the Baltimore Sun, Cincinnati has shown interest in Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas, having either hosted him during a visit and/or worked him out. If you're under the impression that the Cincinnati Bengals won't select a quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft, don't be. In as much as the community hopes that Cincinnati is open to moving on from the Andy Dalton era, whatever steps that the team intends to take (extension) from now until next year are unclear. However, it's widely believed that the Bengals are looking at possible quarterbacks in the later...

Andy Dalton working with Popular NFL Quarterback Tutor

Andy Dalton appears to realize he needs some work with his game if he's going to become a franchise QB, and Tom House has worked with few notable QBs in his time. What may turn out to be the most important offseason of Andy Dalton's career is going on right now, and he's not sitting back and idly watching. Dalton has enlisted the help of former major league pitcher and quarterback tutor Tom House this offseason. "The motion is still mine. It’s not like it’s completely changed," Dalton said, via Bengals.com. "We tweaked a few things just to make sure all of your momentum, all your...

Story lines for the Kansas City Chiefs 2014 preseason schedule

Writing about story lines for the KC Chiefs 2014 preseason schedule is ... pretty sad. Week 1: Cincinnati Bengals (Aug. 7-10) 2013 record: 11-5Last game: Chiefs lost, 28-6 (11/18/12) The Bengals are in football purgatory with their quarterback. Andy Dalton probably isn't good enough to put you among the AFC's elite competing for a Super Bowl year in and year out. But he's also good enough that you're not just going to dump him. So the Bengals have to consider giving him a contract extension. Some might say the Chiefs are in a similar position. Also of note in this game is AJ Green....

Hue Jackson backs Andy Dalton; Also stresses Improvement

Hue Jackson believes in Bengals QB Andy Dalton, but he also knows the fourth-year signal caller has to improve going forward for him to be counted on. The story of the Bengals offseason is the contract status of quarterback Andy Dalton. With one year left on his rookie deal, the team appears prepared to sign him to a long-term extension that will ensure he's the franchise QB for years to come. So far, owner Mike Brown has made comments suggesting he's not completely on board with giving Dalton a long-term deal that pays him $10 million+ annually, while head coach Marvin Lewis has stated he...

Andy Dalton: Couple of proposals sent over

Andy Dalton: Couple of proposals sent over

The ideal situation is allow Dalton's contract to play out without an extension, essentially proving that he can win the big games, especially in the postseason. Unfortunately to some, the all-consuming debate on whether to extend Andy Dalton figures to last throughout most of the summer -- save for the momentary break in May when the NFL Draft kicks off. Head coach Marvin Lewis is ready to get something done. Owner Mike Brown isn't really committing one way or the other; he'd like to re-sign Dalton but the cost is essentially prohibitive for other positions and extensions (per his thought...

The Andy Dalton dilemma should be easy

If you don't extend Dalton, you put the spotlight on him to perform. If he's up to the challenge, throw in the extra millions and sign him. If he collapses, then you only confirm that he's incapable of performing under pressure. Thank goodness. If we're sitting around conjuring up Andy Dalton's response to the Cincinnati Bengals lack of movement in free agency, this has to be close. Typically during the offseason, every issue facing the Bengals offers a tsunami-like response. When the Bengals lost their third consecutive playoff game, it was Dalton and Marvin Lewis. Eventually the tide...

The Bengals Are Crazy for Thinking Andy Dalton Is Their QB of the Future

ORLANDO — If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results, then the Bengals are certifiable when it comes to quarterback Andy Dalton.

Peter King's reaction to Andy Dalton nails it

This isn't about whether you like Dalton or not. Nor is this about whether Dalton is a good quarterback or not -- he's doing a lot of things that no Bengals quarterback has done. This is about one thing. Winning a playoff game. With Mike Brown's comments that Andy Dalton's negotiation is taking first position this offseason, to the point that nothing else will happen until Dalton is resolved one way or another, a collective sigh reverberated throughout the queen city. A quality (and yes, proven) regular season quarterback that self-destructs in the postseason articulates a five-second...
