The Cincinnati Bengals have made the playoffs three times with Andy Dalton leading the team and all three times he has failed to produce in the big moment. Bad Andy Dalton shows up during playoff time. The turnovers are flying all over the place in the moment.
The Bengals have a talented group of players on their roster, but Dalton doesn’t seem to be a quarterback that can take them to the promised land. He is too inconsistent to trust in the big game. The defense is one of the best in the league and he has one of the best receivers in A.J. Green. The other role players on the offense are good at what they do.
With Dalton’s contract ending after next season, it seems to be a good time to look for a quarterback that can bring this team a playoff win. Someone that is more consistent or someone that can make the big play when it counts.
Dalton has one more season to prove that he can be the Bengals franchise quarterback. Next year will be his last season on his rookie contract. If he does prove that he can get that first win, would you really be willing to pay him franchise quarterback type of money?
