VIDEO: Proof that Andy Dalton is playing the wrong sport

Cinncinati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton might get too much grief for his team’s early playoff exits over the last few years. After all, there are 53 men on the roster and football is an incredibly complex game with more moving parts than any other sport.
