Colin Cowherd still hating on Andy Dalton, not giving him credit for Bengals 6-0 record

Colin Cowherd keeps reminding us he's not a fan of Andy Dalton.

Anyone who plays professional sports is always going to have skeptics, even when they're at the top of their sport.

Andy Dalton has been one of the best quarterbacks in football through the first six weeks of this season, and he obviously has his critics. Fox Sports radio personality Colin Cowherd is his biggest and most vocal critic, and though he's said in the past he'd quit making fun of Dalton, he continues to do the opposite.

His latest example of this was comparing Dalton to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and their supporting casts.

"If I gave Cam Newton Cincinnati's weapons, are you kidding me," Cowherd said. "You put Andy Dalton in Carolina's huddle, there's nothing there."

Saying that "there's nothing there" isn't exactly fair to say of Dalton if he was in Carolina. It's not like he had much to work with last season when Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert were out for the year while A.J. Green was banged up throughout the season. Dalton obviously wouldn't be putting up the same numbers in Carolina with the lack of weapons they have, but predicting it as "nothing" is a little harsh.

Dalton has done everything in his power to stop commentary like this from happening this season, but, Cowherd will keep on keeping on.
