Andy Dalton: 'Smells like victory'

If you've been a regular reader of the blog, you know I've been critical of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton for his playoff performances, his effectiveness on third downs, and the interceptions that were returned for touchdowns. Well, it's time to give Dalton some much-deserved applause.

You have to click here to watch Dalton's hilarious commercial for Pepsi. It's not on the same level as the rapping Manning brothers, but Dalton made me laugh throughout the 90-second clip. As Bengals beat reporters would attest, Dalton wouldn't rank among the top personalities on the team (although he would be ahead of James Harrison). Dalton, however, delivered his lines well and had comedic timing.

Not to spoil the commercial, Dalton visits a couple of Bengals fans to try his new fragrance. You'll hear such memorable lines as "it contains real tiger sweat" and "smells like victory."
