Andy Dalton is becoming a marked man in Bengaldom.

Fans and media have been heavily criticizing the Cincinnati Bengals’ starting quarterback after he failed to lead his offense into the end zone in back-to-back games.

Now, former Bengals receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh is calling out Dalton. In an interview with TMZ, Houshmandzadeh singled out Dalton as being a big reason why the offense is struggling.

“If we’re gonna hold everyone accountable, you have to look at Andy Dalton,” said Houshmandzadeh.

Houshmandzadeh mentioned Dalton missing a wide-open Brandon LaFell for what would have been a long gain, if not a score in a game that was decided by just four points.

Houshmandzadeh did say that he would still start Dalton in Week 3 when the Bengals face the Green Bay Packers. He also mentioned how it’s a combination of the offensive coordinator and the quarterback, but added “Andy Dalton is just not getting it done right now.”

Hopefully, new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor can get Dalton back on track. We’ve seen him play at a high level before, so here’s to hoping he gets back to that soon and hushes all of the doubters.
