The talk about Bengals quarterback Andy Daltons lack of arm strength isnt going away. He addressed it again after Cincinnatis preseason game Thursday night, a 24-19 win over the Falcons in which Dalton went 8-for-14 for 125 yards and one touchdown.
"It's not holding me back," Dalton said. "It's not changing the way I play the game. They can say whatever they want. As long as we win games, as long as I'm getting completions to my guys, I'm not worried about it."
His touchdown was a 50-yard connection with A.J. Green, and Dalton threw the ball plenty far.
In his visit to Steelers camp, ESPN.coms Jamison Hensley saw an unusual alignment for the Pittsburgh offense in a red-zone drill: three wide receivers, a running back and a fullback. Thats right, no tight end. Does that sound like the Steelers? What hath Todd Haley wrought? Or maybe the new offensive coordinator was running it just for show, to give opponents something to think about.
Hensley also noted the Steelers are the only AFC North team that still holds training camp at a remote site, instead of at the club facility.
"It's a tradition that we embrace and that we're very appreciative of the opportunity to step away and to come together and develop individually, and more importantly collectively," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "It creates a little bit of adversity. Guys are on top of each other. But at the end of the day, it's a growth process. I think it's something that helps team development. No doubt. I'm an advocate of going away to training camp."
The Steelers have trained at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa., for 47 years.
