CINCINNATI, Jan. 22 (UPI) — Marvin Lewis doesn’t have “time to waste time with another quarterback” in Cincinnati. Lewis gave an exclusive interview with and the Cincinnati Enquirer, on Wednesday during a practice for the Reeses Senior Bowl, backing quarterback Andy Dalton.

“Fortunately, somehow I’ve got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, ‘Don’t get into a quarterback controversy,'” Lewis told reporter Jeff Hobson. “That’s worked from Jon to Carson to Andy. It’s helped us have the success we’ve had, and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they’ve left out of here they’ve been productive. It works.

“We have no problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback. We don’t have time to waste time with another QB. To not continue to press forward and get Andy better and to get whoever the backup quarterbacks are better.”

Dalton and the Bengals were bounced from the playoffs in the first round for the fourth consecutive season. Dalton, who made the Pro Bowl as a seventh alternate, had a career-best 65.2 percent completion percentage this season.
