Today I had the incredible opportunity to speak with one of the biggest fans of the Bengals in the world. David Coleman, a well-known speaker and entertainer, also known as the “Dating Doctor,” takes time out of his busy schedule to fill us in on what we can expect from the Bengals and why we should be concerned on Thursday night. In addition, David gives us some good analysis on the Dolphins that may be the truth on the struggles that plague the team. David can be contacted at www.datingdoctor.com. In addition, to David’s business, he spends time traveling overseas to entertain our troops.
1. David, please tell us about Andy Dalton. What makes him so good? How does he compare to Bengals quarterbacks of the past?
First of all, you never see him (Andy Dalton) lose his cool, if he throws and interception, he just walks of the field and gets back for the next drive. I think it is a maturity beyond his years, he’s in 2 ½ full years of playing, and the team was smart enough to sign him with some talent: Matt Jones, AJ Green, Giovanni, both Gresham and Eifert. He’s got some talented people on the team now that he can look to. With AJ Green, you get the ball close to him he’s gonna catch it. Same thing with Gresham, he’s gonna catch it and it doesn’t have to be perfect…he’s gonna catch it. You have a quarterback that makes you look awfully good. As far as how does he compare to anybody (quarterback) in the past, I’ve been in Cincinnati since ’85...hard to look past Boomer Esiason, he was awfully popular here. He took the team to the Super Bowl and if Lewis Billups doesn’t drop that interception, they win the Super Bowl versus a very good San Francisco team. Top 3 quarterbacks right now, I think you got Boomer, people that grew up in Cincinnati idolized Kenny Anderson, and you’re going to have Dalton top three or four.
