Jay Gruden Defends Bengals QB Andy Dalton Against Critics
Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden hears the criticism of Andy Dalton and comes out to defend his starting quarterback.
Analysts and "experts" question Andy Dalton's ability to lead Cincinnati to the next level, while head coach Marvin Lewis and offensive coordinator Jay Gruden scratch their heads about prevalent opinion from said experts and analysts. Even some fans have wavered on their belief that Dalton can take Cincinnati to said "next level".
That being said offensive coordinator Jay Gruden tells everyone to settle down.
"We're not going to trade anybody or get somebody new. We have to do a good job making sure he takes the necessary steps to progress and get better in year three."-Jay Gruden on Andy Dalton
"He may not be in the category of Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers and those guys. Yet," Gruden tells Bengals.com. "He's in year two, he's a great guy. He competes his butt off and I know everyone wants perfection from that position. It's a very criticized position. As it should be. I think he's done pretty well for his first two years. We need better."
