Default Andy Dalton, thanks for the response to the criticism.

Title pretty much says it all. Andy has been under fire by myself, as well as many of our fellow fans, and he seems to have taken the initiative to improve the passing offense of late.

Kudos to the Bengals players and coaches for recognizing and fixing a problem, before it became a detriment to the season!

6 TDs, 1 INT in the past 2 weeks. Tbh, he's only had 1 bad game this season.

The QB gets too much criticism and too much credit far too often. There are so many teams that would love to have year 3 Andy yet too many of our fans would rather cash it in for a draft pick by going with Josh Johnson or picking up Freeman. Crazy talk.

Yup.

Shake said it best though. The guy has only had one bad game. In contrast, our "elite" D has consistently played worse than Andy.

How has he answered his critics again? Honest question, but his had several underthrows at the WRs, good think Green turned one into 82 yds and a TD for Dalton's overall stats, but do not see where he answered the deep ball critics.
Second one is staring down his WRs, he missed MJ wide open in the endzone because he was zeroed on the sideline WR instead of scanning once flushed.

Don't get me wrong, Dalton was great today, just wondering how he has answered his critics when the concerns still seem prevalent.

3 TD passes, and the win on the road, two weeks in a row. Everyone makes mistakes. You think the Lions fans aren't flaming Stafford for at least 4 overthrows to wide open receivers that could have been easy TDs??

This whole post is straight BS. Dalton still had to roll out and and make that throw to Green. It was a little underthrown, but if that's all you have to complain about, it must've been a great day for Dalton. I did not see "several" underthrows.

Apparently you're seeing what you want to see.

I didn't see him staring down receivers either. That's a load of garbage. As for "missing a wide open MJ" in the end zone, Dalton was rolling to his right due to pressure. He would've had to throw a 50 yard strike across his body (MJ was to Dalton's left) on the run to get MJ. No QB in the NFL would make that throw. QBs are trained to not throw across their body even on short throws, let alone a 50 yard bomb on the run.

bengals Re: Andy Dalton, thanks for the response to the criticism.

I think a big difference I see is that Marvin Jones stepped up in a big way. He created himself as a legitimate #2 WR threat and it's opened up things for AJ. On top of that, then with two legit WR threats, it opens up the middle of the field for the TEs (who combined for 109 yards).

I won't lie, I wasn't a Marvin Jones believer.. but he's really impressed me the last two weeks. Dalton on the other hand, I knew had this in him. Glad to see him finally just do what he's clearly capable of.

I have been questioning that for a while but what he has shown the last two weeks shows me he can get us there. He has some improving to do but I think he can do it. Especially impressive is his response when the fans and the media got on him. Palmer would have imploded. Dalton did not. That's enough to convince me.

Count me in on this one. I believed in him as a rookie, I thought he took a step in the right direction last year, and the two last games he has proven (to me) that he has the consistency to lead this team. This is the kind of third year I want to see from Dalton.

He absolutely is. I think he's a QB who needs a good defence and good pieces around him to go all the way, but we do have that. He can take us there.

He's come back and played great since the Cleveland debacle. Responded really well. If he could just air that deep throw out a lil better... but he was great today. As he was last week. And he was solid against the Pats.

Nobody wants Andy to do well more than Andy himself. Today was an awesome game for him. Good play calling from the coaches and good execution by Andy.

Let's keep this up!

Ugh... Deep balls are like 10% of a QB's game man. He hit on some, missed on others. What's more important is the short and intermediate passes that make up the wide majority of an offense and he came up big today (in addition to hitting on several deep passes).

The defense has FAR from played consistently bad. They had two really bad plays last week and played a bad game today but they've kept us in every game. We have played some pretty potent offenses that our D has shut down.

Andy has a great game and now all of a sudden our D has been consistently played worse than Andy. This is why Andy homers can only be taken serious 50% of the time.

He ain't starin down receivers.

He had a couple underthrows on long low percentage throws cuz he tried to be perfect and he should have just put some air under it and let AJ go get it. That first TD throw was fine cuz Green was so wide open just put it on him and make sure its complete. The other two later on AJ was behind the defense but it was still decent coverage, there was no room for the underthrows there and he needed to put more loft on those throws, which he can and i imagine he will next time.

No, it is not. He underthrew several receivers and the commentators even remarked on how he has to stop doing that.

And he does at times stare down the receivers. He did it at least a couple times today.

Having said that, Dalton had a very good game, especially considering the pressure today. However, that does not mean he doesn't have to work on the above.
