2021 Pre-Season #102 Rank, 2020 Pre-Season Rank #150.
Three years ago, we said this: “Dalton has played his entire career with the Bengals and is still capable of a monster year that could catapult him up this list”
Two years ago, we said this: So much for that. Dalton lost his starting QB job last year (though many pointed out the woes of Cincinnati were not his fault. His stat padding days might be over as he is now Dak Prescott’s backup, but there was a time when he was a really good Quarterback, and could wind up starting somewhere again.”
As it turned out, Dalton did get starts in Dallas when Prescott got injured, and was decent, though not spectacular. After that, he was back up in Chicago, where he saw some playing time, and he enters 2022 in the same situation in New Orleans. No matter how it ends for Dalton, he is a three-time Pro Bowl Quarterback, and that is impressive.
