Andy Dalton didn't react well to comments made by J.J. Watt after the Cincinnati Bengals lost to the Houston Texans on Monday.
"Our goal was to come out here and make the Red Rifle look like the Red Ryder BB Gun and I think we did that," said Watt.
"I'm disappointed in him because of the integrity of this game," Dalton said. "I have a lot of respect for him. He's a really good player. There are a lot of kids and people who look up to him, and for him to make comments like that, he's just showing that's acceptable to say that kind of stuff.
"It's disappointing for one of the best players in this league to come out and say something like that, so that's all I'm going to say about that. He's a good player, but for him to be one of the best in this league and to show that integrity, it shows what he's about, and that's disappointing."
"It would make me worry if I was the Bengals," one GM said. "Just when you thought [Dalton's] skin had thickened, he maybe showed us he's not prepared for the pressure games in January."
