Ditto on the goal line play. You pound that into the line a few times before you ever take that risk. My problem with Dalton is not physical. It's with his risk management. There are times to take risks but yesterday was not one of them. We had them beaten in all phases of the game. All we had to do to win was to go toe to toes with 'em. The only way they could stay with us is if we give them TOs
He has receivers that can go up and get the football and he's being coached to trust his receivers. If you have a problem with Dalton's decision to throw those balls, then your criticism should be of the Bengals' coaching staff, as they're the ones instructing him to trust his receivers in those situations.
