Doug Farrar with Yahoo say's the Bengals need to reconsider what they have in Dalton. I don't think Dalton is the problem. yes he had a bad game, but the game plan was pure ****, the game calling was pure ****, by both Lewis and Gruden. the game plan was not to throw it to Green in the first half, and instead focus on trying to throw it to Gresham because they thought their linebackers were the weak point in the offense. and of course, once we start throwing the ball to Green, we start moving the ball. shocker.
Dalton still made a lot of bad throws and questionable decisions, thats 2 playoff games in a row he has sucked it up. But to let go of him now would be madness. The guy just finished his second year, he can still improve a crapton.
I'm mad as anyone at Daltons throwing and decision making this game, but damn man Jay Gruden is the one that got me mad, you tell me you couldnt get your best receiver the ball the whole first half? Benjarvus was doing great, but only 11 carries?
