Cam who?

NASHVILLE -- It's Cam Newton this, Cam Newton that.

Why doesn't anybody talk about Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton?

All he does is something Newton hasn't done much of: Win.

Dalton threw three touchdown passes Sunday against the Tennessee Titans to lead the Bengals to a 24-17 victory and up their record to 6-2 at the halfway point of the season.

Dalton was calm, poised and accurate against the Titans, showing why this team is a legitimate playoff contender. Dalton now has 12 touchdown passes on the season and seven interceptions.

The Bengals aren't asking him to win games, but when they fell behind by Sunday Dalton was able to rally them in the second half.

The defense did the rest. The Titans got the ball back twice in the final five minutes and the second time the Bengals forced a fumble by Jared Cook with 3:49 left to ice it.

Get Ochocinco some help

Most would say the Bengals should stay away from temperamental receivers Terrell Owens and Antonio Bryant. After all, they already have Chad Ochocinco.

Are they trying to drive Carson Palmer nuts, you ask?

Palmer can handle it all. He's one of the most even-tempered quarterbacks out there. He knows when to push and when not to push.
He can handle Owens or Bryant. He already handles Ochocinco. And none of them is as bad as advertised. They all love to play the game. Isn't that what you want?

The Bengals need a deep threat. They need a player who can open up the field. When Chris Henry got hurt and then passed away, there was a major void in their offense.

Bryant or Owens can fill it. If one of them is signed, the Bengals can get back to letting Palmer air it out more.

They became too predictable on offense last season. Palmer is too good for that.

Give him another weapon -- even if that player can sometimes be a complainer. Just don't break the bank to do so.

Bryant and Owens are scheduled to visit the Bengals this week. Want to bet one of them gets signed?
