Each week, our Dial Global football analysts respond to questions posed by listeners right here on DialGlobalSports.com.
Q: MSgt Frank W. (Battle Creek, MI) – Are the Bengals a legit team this year? They are ‘under the radar’ now and hopefully they’ll win the AFC North. By the way – great job overall – doing the radio show & calling the MNF games – us fans love the tar out of you!!!
A: Thanks for the question, Frank. And thanks for your service. The thing that I do love about the Cincinnati Bengals is that their second-year quarterback, Andy Dalton, came back from a miserable performance against the Ravens in Week 1 and has really had nice back-to-back performances , especially last week leading his team to another win. I think Dalton is really getting ready to arrive now. It’s his football team and the offense, with AJ Green, is quite potent. The Bengals are for real this year, and it’s nice to see they have a young quarterback that’s developing and a young wide receiver as dangerous as AJ Green.
