Bengals Early Bird Special: Battle of Rookie Quarterbacks Approaching

Good morning everyone. It's way too early to be awake right now. Or at least in my world it is. If you're like me and aren't a morning person then grab some coffee and wake yourself up before you set off to work, school, or whatever it is you do with your time.

On Sunday it's going to be a showdown of two rookie quarterbacks in Andy Dalton of the Bengals and Blaine Gabbert of the Jaguars. In all honesty, up to this point of the season Dalton has looked more like a quarterback then Gabbert. Granted both of them have looked like what they are, rookies. Dalton has shown more glimpses of what he's capable of in comparison to Gabbert. Then again Jacksonville is filled with a bunch of no ones, outside of Maurice Jones-Drew. Dalton has completed 58 percent of his passes, while his rival, Gabbert has completed just shy of 48 percent of his passes. 

Gabbert hasn't looked comfortable at the helm for the Jags. He kind of looks like a chicken running around with its head cut off. That's just my opinion though. Dalton, on the other hand, has shown more poise and confidence. However, he hasn't always looked comfortable in the pocket. But this is all part of the development for both quarterbacks. The more snaps they take, the more playing time they receive, the more they should improve. Or that's how it's suppose to work. But that's not always the case, see JaMarcus Russell.

I have a feeling that on Sunday we are going to see something along the same lines that we have seen ever game so far this season. I would much rather predict that this is Dalton's "breakout" game, but for some reason I just don't see that happening. Then again, I could be wrong and Dalton could post one of the best games in his young career.

Alright here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Wednesday.
