Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Andy Dalton will remain the team’s starting quarterback. However, it’s about time he seriously looks into that decision. His play indicates he needs to be benched now!

The Bengals are 0-2 to begin the season for the first-time since the 2008 season. They are also coming off of a season, where they missed the playoffs.

A.J. McCarron is ready to be the guy in Cincinnati. Also, with Dalton, the team could deal him – probably even to the New York Jets for draft picks. They desperately need a quarterback.

Dalton went 20 of 35 for 224 yards. He had zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the game, as the Bengals lost 13-9 to the Houston Texans.

The Bengals have zero touchdowns through two games. It’s the first-time since the 1939 Philadelphia Eagles that a team has done that.

Dalton has been ineffective, at best, and has thrown many bad passes. He even attempted to throw a knuckleball into the stands.

He also even overthrown Brandon LaFell on a wide-open deep pass.

Dalton’s protection has been questionable at best, as well. Yet, he has missed throws that normal NFL quarterbacks should easily make.

He has not looked like the same player he has been in the past. The Bengals travel to Lambeau Field in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.
