I don't think there's even a ceiling for Dalton right now. He'll never have John Elway's arm or be 4 inches taller, but people said the same crap about Brees for many years. He could end up being the best QB in Bengals franchise history or he could be out as a starter in a couple of years. I think all of that kinda talk is crazy at this point.
When you watch Cam Newton, you can see the upside. That doesn't mean he will reach it, but it is there. With a guy like Dalton, the upside is Matt Hasselback. I mean sure, I guess he could turn into Drew Brees, but it is incredibly unlikely. Dalton is a guy who has good qualities across the board, but none of them are great (at least physical ones).
