Bengals Mailbag: Can Dalton carry team?

CINCINNATI -- Now that we're in the final quarter of the season, we figured what better time than now to start answering your Cincinnati Bengals questions?

What we'll do for the next four Fridays is take some time to answer a few questions that our loyal and trusted readers have about this team. In order to have your question included in our weekly rotation, feel free to tweet me @ColeyHarvey or email me at coley.harvey@espn.com each Friday by 9 a.m. ET. If I don't get to your question, keep asking. The goal is to have the mailbag uploaded here each Friday evening. So check back around this time each week.

This week, your concerns ranged from quarterback Andy Dalton's play to the recent use of the tight ends to the Bengals' defense. Let's get to them, shall we?
