2014: Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals
It was right about this time when people in Cincinnati realized that Andy Dalton was like a girlfriend you settled with because you thought you couldn’t find anyone better, but when you took her to the dance, you realized how much prettier ever other girl was. Dalton had a breakthrough season in 2013, throwing 33 touchdown passes and a career-high 4,293 yards. But when the playoffs started? Dalton looked totally outclassed in the Bengals’ 27-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers. While the 334 passing yards might look nice in the box score, he couldn’t lead Cincinnati to a single scoring drive in the second half of that game.
