Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Bengals OC Jay Gruden conceded Andy Dalton has "a long way to go."
"He's done some great things for a second-year quarterback. ... But we feel like he has not come close to his potential," Gruden said. "That's our job to get it out of him. And he knows he's gotta play better." Gruden specifically mentioned Dalton's touch and deep-ball accuracy as things he must improve. Dalton's weak arm makes the latter unlikely to get better.
