Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson believes he has the remedy for all of Andy Dalton’s previous struggles.
Jackson, who replaced Jay Gruden this offseason after Gruden accepted the Redskins coaching job, believes Dalton has greatness in him.
Jackson said during an appearance Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio, that Dalton “is on the cusp of something really good as a quarterback.”
“He’s on the cusp of something really good,” Jackson said. … “The key to being a quarterback in the National Football League No. 1 is winning, and he has that trait. No. 2 is being able to win the big games. Obviously, that’s the hump that we’re trying to get over. The guy has the makeup to do it.
“What I’ve got to do is just continue to push, prod, pull, motivate, support him and the rest of this offensive unit, and then we’ve got to pick up the pieces everywhere else to give him a chance to do his job. If we do that, this young man will be right where he needs to be.”
Jackson hinted an increased dose of the run game to keep Dalton out of poor situations.
