The Bengals bored the 49ers to death on Sunday, but in doing so, unleashed a force with power that would make the tesseract whimper and retreat. The greatness of A.J. McCarron is a secret no longer. He’s easily surpassed Andy Dalton at this point (look at the numbers and you tell me who has a better winning percentage), but the real question is where does he rank among other all-time greats? How soon will he eclipse the trajectories of Brady, Elway, Manning, and Montana? Has he already done that? And why won’t the Hall of Fame waive its five-year eligibility period when faced with pure greatness? These questions are answered in this week’s Fulcher 2 Stay podcast, along with thoughts on sleeping late and Monday’s pivotal game against the Broncos.
But seriously though, A.J. McCarron is the reason for the season.
