damn I told you so. When will BENGAL Nation realize that Andy Dalton is not a franchise QB but is merely a game manager. The sad thing is that Marvin and Mike put Dalton in a situation were he can't do anything but look bad in my opinion. Will Andy have a game or two a year that makes you think that he could be elite..................yes but Dalton is what he is and the BENGALS did a horrible job in putting in pieces around him so he does not have to have a GREAT game for this team to win.
I have been screaming for the past 6 months that this team needs a true number 2 receiver to help out Green and more important Dalton. You simply can not go into a year and depend on players who have very little exp at one of the toughest position and expect them to put up numbers on a weekly basis because as you SHOULD be able to see now it will not happen. Our offensive line sucks and instead of mgmt going out and get a legit LG to play beside Andrew they chose to fill the teams biggest hole with a guy nobody knows who was out for the year in his first series in pre season. Carl Nicks who is the best OG in the business signed for roughly about about 8 mill a year which is not bad. This really hurts because this team has to hit a home run every year because Brown is too cheap to bring in talent to fill holes. It's pretty sad when your best offensive lineman is a rookie who has only played in 6 games.
I hate to keep beating this drun but I told Bengal Nation that BJGE is not a very good RB either. Bengal fans should be able to see why New England made NO EFFORT at all to re-sign him.
Regardless of all the things above this team could have headed into the bye week at 6-1 or 5-2 at worst. Now this team will be 3-4 because if you can't beat Miami and Cleveland how in the hell are you going to beat the Steelers who have owned us and I won't even talk about this defense because they simply suck!
