ARLINGTON -- Andy Dalton is getting a hang of this comedy thing. The former
TCU great and current Cincinnati Bengal quarterback was in the middle of
answering a question during his postgame press conference Saturday night when a
cameraman’s phone went off.
The Eagles' Hotel California played for 20 or 30 seconds while the poor cameraman tried to negotiate his camera while finding his phone in his pocket.
It didn’t faze Dalton.
“I think there’s a lot to learn from this [game] tape,” he
said as the music started. “We got put in a lot of situations; we listened to
some really good music…”
Dalton’s comedy chops have been on display of late. He’s had a few funny moments on HBO’s Hard Knocks, which has been following the Bengals training camp. And a recently-released Pepsi commercial where Dalton is trying to sell a fictitious Bengal-smelling fragrance to fans shows that he has comedic timing to go with his athletic skill.

Dalton completed 12 of 16 passes for 113 yards Saturday in the Bengals’ 24-18 preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
