I'd argue each of these guys put up a better season than Dalton. Can you knock two or three of the list? Sure. But at best you're arguing that he's a very middle of the pack quarterback.
Can he improve? Sure. But ask how many of these guys he's likely to move past next year, or the year after that?
Agreed. I've bolded those that are clearly (and will always be) better than Dalton. Underlined those that are better now and may continue to be. Only the guys in plain italics does Dalton really have a chance to eclipse. So yes, I agree with your conclusion. He is, at best, an average NFL starting QB.
