You can add backup AJ McCarron to the list of people who think Andy Dalton should remain the starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I wish people in this city would back him and go with it,” McCarron said,. “Listen, I think I’m a great quarterback, and I think he’s an unbelievable quarterback. I love him to death. He’s our quarterback. Stop making it into something else. It’s not into something else. Ride with him. Trust the team. Trust the process. And trust what we are trying to do.”

McCarron said he was aware of the ProFootballTalk report that some Bengals players think McCarron should be starting and the team should sign Colin Kaepernick, but McCarron said Dalton doesn’t have to worry about any dissension from him.

“Andy knows our relationship,” McCarron said. “I don’t think Andy has to ever worry. We don’t let those things get between me and him. There is always somebody wanting this guy to play.

“He’s our quarterback,” McCarron continued. “It sucks to see — for me personally, with my relationship with him — people booing him. It’s like, do you think he wants to have tipped balls that turn into interceptions? Has he worked his whole life for that, his whole week for that? No.”
