Hey Steeler Nation, it’s time for some “cross-site Q&A” once again here at “Nice Pick, Cowher.”

With the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals set to square off tomorrow night, Jason Marcum (@UK_Fans) of Stripe Hype was kind enough to answer some Bengals-related questions for me.

So if you would like to read what the editor of FanSided’s Cincinnati Bengals-themed blog had to say about the team he covers and this weekend’s game, just head to the “Q&A portion” on the following pages:

1. Is Andy Dalton the long-term answer at the quarterback position for the Bengals? Or will his up-and-down play result in the franchise looking in another direction soon?

He’s probably going to get the Joe Flacco treatment and not consider re-signing him until his rookie deal is up. He’s too inconsistent to commit to long-term right now, but he’s done enough to earn one more season, regardless of how he finishes this year.

He’ll probably struggle Sunday to the point people will want him gone, but he’ll shred the Vikings next week to the point everyone calls him a franchise QB and the Bengals a dark horse Super Bowl team.

That’s the story of the Bengals’ season.
