Man, Dalton is really killing this team by winning 30 games in his first three years. It's unfortunate, because now we're not nearly able to be high enough in the draft order to take Aaron Rodgers 2.0 in Teddy Bridgewater nor Big Ben 2.0 in Blake Bortles nor a mobile Drew Brees in Johnny Manziel
nor David Carr 2.0 in Derek Carr, who would have then joined a long line of elite, Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in the storied history of the Cincinnati Bengals. Among their accomplishments includes feats such as leading the team to a franchise-record number of consecutive playoff berths, and impressive franchise records for both passing yards and passing touchdowns in a season. Dalton hasn't even come close to doing these.
I would have preferred for him to lose all those games. What makes things even worse is that drafting a mid-round quarterback to groom behind Dalton, and replace Josh Johnson at the backup spot, doesn't remove Dalton from his starting spot! But all hope is not lost. We could trade all our picks from the 2014 and 2015 drafts to move up to get one of those top draft guys. Or, we could call up Denver, New England, Green Bay, San Diego, New Orleans, Indianapolis, and a few other teams to swing a trade for their quarterback. Let's do it!
Winning all these games to ruin our draft position. Shame on you, Andy. We know you're mediocre, so play like it.
