Dalton Chokes Again

Recommended Posts

 

 

Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse for Andy Dalton, it did.

Once again, with all of America watching, the Cincinnati Bengals' fourth-year quarterback looked more like a junior varsity signal-caller unsure of his role in an incredibly anemic offense. For the second time in four games, Dalton's Bengals failed to score a touchdown.

He looked lost Thursday. Discouraged. Out of sync. Quite simply, he didn't look like a man with a $115 million arm in the 24-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

His throws were mostly high and wide. When they weren't, they fluttered wildly in the winds that bandied about Paul Brown Stadium in gusts that reportedly reached 34 mph.

Coach Marvin Lewis chalked it up to a bad night. Dalton couldn't figure out what happened. He had no answers, but the rest of us knew. It wasn't simply an off game, nor was it a perplexing one. It was the same disheartening story Dalton has subjected the league to time and time again.

Again on the big, prime-time, nationally televised stage, Dalton wilted.

And we lost to them twice.

 

Dalton has all the confidence in the world against the Ravens...and why not? He knows he can complete a bomb at any time on our secondary.

 

Next time we play them maybe we can borrow someone else's jerseys

Cleveland's D is legit. Hate to say it, but I enjoyed watching Cleveland last night, more than the Ravens.

Yup...plus don't they have a very legit backfield? Gordon isn't even playing...and they lost their starting center!

Only 1 QB, in the history of the NFL has had a worse game than Dalton.

 

 

 

These Are Very Bad Games
QB Year Comp % Yards TD INT Rate
Andy Dalton 2014 30.3 86 0 3 2.0
Kordell Stewart 1998 31.4 84 0 3 5.1
Vince Ferragamo 1984 33.3 82 0 4 2.8
Gary Marangi 1976 26.7 83 0 3 0.0
Jack Concannon 1969 34.3 79 0 3 7.4

The specific P-F-R search criteria we used here? All-time NFL, less than 35 percent completions, more than 30 pass attempts, less than 90 passing yards and 3 or more interceptions.

Not that it really matters: the point being we're talking about one of the absolute worst games you've seen a quarterback play in NFL history. And, yeah, there was some wind out there but Brian Hoyer did OK for the Browns.

Putting up a game like this as a $100 million quarterback (yes, we know about guarantees, please stop mentioning that) in today's pass-happy NFL. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-football/24787866/andy-dalton-was-historically-awful-thursday-night
