On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals suffered one of the more disappointing defeats in the young 2014 NFL Playoffs when they were dominated at home by the San Diego Chargers, 27-10.
Quarterback Andy Dalton took the brunt of the blame for the loss by virtually everyone as he had one of the worst outings of the season, throwing two interceptions while being sacked three times.
After that performance, there were many wondering whether or not Dalton indeed is the guy under center for the long-term future of this team, but head coach Marvin Lewis apparently isn’t one of them.
Dalton said that he was told by Lewis that he has the utmost faith in him as his starting quarterback and that won’t change any time soon.
Dalton says Marvin Lewis informed him he has faith in him as his guy and expects to be here a long time. #Bengals

This is all well and good, but we all know how vote of confidences go in sports sometimes, especially professional sports where you’re paying someone to get a job done that they continuously fail to get done.
