The article centers around an interview with NFL Films producer Greg Cosell. Cosell offered up this quote as a guest on a podcast for Yahoo! Sports:
“I think there’s a sense right now, for a lot of people, that Dalton’s on his way toward being a great quarterback. I can tell you that those in the Bengals’ organization have a few doubts as to what his true upside is. Because at the end of the day, while I think Dalton is a good player, I think — not I think, I know — that he’s got some arm strength limitations.“And there’s some things that they’re not comfortable doing with him.”
“I don’t know where that came from and why he (Cosell) said it. If there were reservations about Andy Dalton there would be a lot more quarterbacks here right now. We know and he knows he has to get better and he is chomping at the bit to get going. I have no reservations about his arm strength. I think he can do it all. He might not run 4.3 in the 40 or be 6-6 but to play the position and what we need to do he can do everything we want.“If you can throw it 62-63 yards that is pretty strong. He does have a long way to go to get better. We’re not putting his jersey or shoes in Canton right now but we have every reason to believe he will continue to improve.”
