Andy Dalton is the future of this franchise


I was very vocal about NOT wanting to draft Andy Dalton.  I thought his arm was far too weak to make all the throws, he took too many chances, and he had a bloated record as a starter.

Besides Cam Newton, no player in the NFL has impressed me as much as Dalton has.  Maybe it's being used to Carson Palmer for the last few years but I just LOVE the passion he has.  You can see it on the sidelines.  The guys really do seem him as a leader on this team.

It's only been 4 games but I can already tell Dalton is going to be legit.  What I mistook for him taking risky shots was really his confidence in himself.  That weak arm is on pace for ~3500 yards as a rookie.  He already has great rapport with the other future of this offense, A.J. Green.

While I still doubt we make the playoffs this season, it's amazing that for the first time since opening day in 2005 I really feel that something special is on the horizon.

The king is dead. Long live the king.
