Puking Andy Dalton

Dalton’s condition was revealed

The way Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton played in the first half, with the Bucs picking him off three times, it was enough to make NFL fans vomit.

On Twitter, Dalton’s woes were widely discussed. It made some sick watching Dalton try to throw.

Well, Dalton was sick. Very. Per Paul Dehner, Jr., of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Dalton was puking all over the place before the game yesterday as he was hammered with a stomach flu.

So, [Dalton] let it out, as Dalton had been since after the team meeting Saturday night when this flu bug turned quality sleep into a nightmare. All the standard symptoms were there, most of them graphic, and each running his body down into submission.

He took IVs in the morning to replenish fluids, but this 24-hour bug picked poor timing as kickoff drew nearer and symptoms refused to relent.

“He threw up at least 20 times I saw,” receiver Mohamed Sanu said. “He threw up so many times.”

Joe thinks it is cool that Dalton was a warrior and went out and played despite his body being ravaged.

It grates Joe that the Bucs couldn’t take advantage of this because their offense can’t get out of its own way.

    After watching the Bucs’ offense for three hours, I puked several times, too.

    I can’t understand how playing the same players on the same plays every time and losing is going to change us from losing. When is change coming, when Lovie leaves?

    The Bucs only have their 53 roster players + practice squad. You just can’t “get better players” at this point. Anyone available is either a crappy player (Garrett Gilkey-like) or damaged goods (Richie Incognito, Ray Rice).

    They’ll have to wait for the off-season and hope to God that they don’t pull an Anthony Collins & Michael Johnson again.

    Damn if you can’t beat a mediocre QB who is violently ill and essentially gift wrapped the game to you with turnovers, you are a very, very poor team.

    Andy dolton tried to give the Bucs 21 points yesterday, but The offense didn’t want them.

    Bengals lead a very tough division. A lot of teams haven’t been able to beat them. We did it without any TEs, starting a guy at OC that has never played there, without Lavonte David, without our second best pass rusher, without an NFL OC with any good experience at any level, without a real offensive line, and without a decent QB on the roster. Despite all this, we nearly won the game. Just imagine how this team will play next season when they’ve addressed their needs and made improvements all along the board.

    Based on similar erratic QB styles one has to wonder if Dalton isn’t Josh Freeman’s red-headed step brother or something? How much longer can this guy’s leash be when he leads his talented team to one and done playoff appearances?

    Andy Dalton and the Bengals should be a case study as to what happens when you pin your future on a QB who really shouldn’t be the QB of the future. This very same scenario can happen with the Bucs. I think the Bucs have more pressing needs than the QB position yet most Bucs fans are clamoring for the Bucs to draft a QB in the first round. What would likely happen is that the Bucs draft a QB just to find out he’s not really a franchise QB and just average at best. Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota are not *can’t miss* players.

    Bengals gave him the $100 million contract and he isn’t that good. He has a better O-Line and quite frankly his numbers aren’t really much more impressive than Mike Glennon. 13TDs to 13INTs? He’s not good.
