Should The A.J. McCarron Era Start In Cincinnati?

posted by Chris Vazquez -

Wild Card Round - Pittsburgh Steelers v Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton has lead the Cincinnati Bengals to the playoffs in five of his first six seasons. 

Like his playoff record, Andy Dalton is winless so far in the 2017 NFL season. 

Although it is only two games in, the offense with Dalton has looked abysmal. They have not scored a touchdown in the two games, both at home, and that is the first time that has been done since the 1939 Eagles.

So far this season, the Bengals QB has thrown for 394 yards with 0 TDs and 4 interceptions. He is completing less than 55% of his passes as well. Dalton has shown signs of regression the last two seasons and it may be time for the Bengals to cut the chord. 

His replacement? A third-year pro out of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron. He has minimal experience but did start the Bengals playoff game in 2015 while Dalton was injured.

The guy knows the playbook and has shown to be competent in the time he has been given to play.

This is probably the right time for the Bengals to see what they have with A.J. McCarron because the team can cut Andy Dalton after this season and save themselves a lot of money.
