With the Bengals looking like they will be drafting Joe Burrow, what does everyone think about Dalton coming to Indy?  He's proven he can get a team to the playoffs when surrounded by good players.  If we draft Love, Herbert or Gordon it may be nice for them to get to play behind Dalton for a year or two before taking over as the starter.

I'm not sure Dalton is that big of an upgrade over Brissett when you know you already have 12M dead money from Brissett. I guess it would depend on how much money Dalton would want. But it's possible the difference in money you have to pay to QBs in either situation might be more useful to pay for an additional rotational player than to get a marginal improvement at QB. Either way I don't feel strongly enough for or against that option.

No. QB purgatory continues with him. We might as well roll with Brissett.

I mean I would take him over Brisset in a heartbeat. If it would mean bringing him here for 2 years and dropping Jacoby and drafting someone this year to develop then absolutley

Love me some Andy Dalton! Perfect stopgap QB for this team if our drafted QB needs a year to sit. He will thrive with this offense. Had nothing in Cinci. Give him an elite O-Line and solid running game and we are playoff contenders! :thmup:

Just talked with a co-worker who is a die hard Bengals fan, and he would rather see the Bengals trade down to acquire players and additional picks.  He said Burrow is a very good QB, but the Bengals needs lots more than a QB, especially a rookie who would be wasting his first few years with a team that needs tons of upgrades.

 

Would be interesting to see if Cincy wold be open to trading down and how much that would cost a team to move up to #1.

I work with a Bengals fan and he said the same thing.  However, I don't think there is any way the Bengals will trade down.  I think they'll definitely draft Burrow even if it would be wiser to trade down and fill more holes.

IMO the Bengals would be real stupid to pass on Burrow. Burrow is one of those generational QBs we always talk about. 

Draft Burrow then use the rest of the draft to start the rebuild. The Bengals do have some talented players already on the team.

The problem with Dalton is he's never taken care of the ball.  If you're trying to run the ball and win with defense for a year or two until your QB is ready, that's probably a deal breaker.  It wouldn't be difficult to upgrade from Brissett, but if you're looking for a somewhat better version of Brissett, I'm not sure Dalton is a good fit.

I agree they need to take him and then put a team around him.  I think Bengals fans are just frustrated and I can understand that.  Their front office is a joke, they had that run of players wearing different orange uniforms (jail), injuries, etc.  They have a very loyal fan base and I give them credit.  Football is big in Ohio and they deserve a better team in Cincy.

Ken Anderson had a few good years and Boomer managed to win an MVP, but they have never really had an elite franchise QB.  I couldn't imagine them passing on him.

JB is the man. Now draft for need. There will be two blue chip guys at 13 and 34 respectively. Any two of these guys will improve our team tremendously. Epenesa, Gross-Matos, Lamb, Kinlaw, Wirfs, Willis, Becton, Jones, Johnson, Jackson, Brown, Thomas, Simmons, etc...

The logical case for Andy Dalton:

 

Logic question #1 - Will we trade up into a top 5 pick to get a QB?

No, the price is just too high to trade up.

 

Logic question #2 - Is Jacoby Brissett the Future?

No, he is not. We've seen enough to know this.  At best, he is a Temporary Present.

 

Logic question #3 - If we brought in Andy Dalton, would he be the Future?

No, he is too old to be the Future.  He would be a Temporary Present.

 

Logic question #4 - Comparing the two Temporary Present QB's, which is better?

Dalton is better than JB as a Temporary Present QB.

Hard pass.  
 

on other comments, Bengals would be crazy to trade down to “fill holes.”  When you have subpar QB play, doesn’t matter how many holes are plugged when there’s a giant crater in your roster (lack of QB).

My thinking exactly.  Dalton would be a 1 to 2 year starter, nothing more.  During those 1 or 2 years we could be a playoff team, though.

    • Any one else catch the parts about Chad Kelly. About how he has to show them they can trust him off the field? I’m not pushing for Chad Kelly as our next Qb, but I found that part interesting. Almost makes me wonder IF he’s not gonna get his shot at the starting job regardless of FA or the Draft results.
    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking. 
    • Hey....    we’ve all had those whoops moments.    Comes with the territory.    I’ve had some whoppers!
