Bengals fans voiced their confidence in Andy Dalton before he was benched

Of course.

Prior to this week, we decided to focus this week’s FanPulse on Andy Dalton and how confident fans were in the Bengals signal-caller.

So of course, the Bengals benched him right after fans let their voice be heard, and based on these results, they’re probably happy to see Dalton is now on the bench.

Over 80% of fans had lost their confidence in Dalton, which is to be expected of a quarterback who’s 0-8, has been part of now four-straight losing seasons, and has never won a playoff game in nearly a decade as Cincinnati’s starting passer.

But to be fair, not many quarterbacks would be having much success behind one of the league’s worst offensive lines while throwing to a depleted group of receivers.

Speaking of, Bengals fans have nearly lost all hope in the direction of the franchise, but it actually got an oh-so-slight boost this week.

Perhaps some fans were somewhat happy the Bengals gave the Rams a good fight in London. If not for three(!) dropped interceptions, that would have been a completely different ballgame.
