    Default Ryan Finley now starter for Bengals

    Ryan Finley was named the starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, benching Andy Dalton. The Bengals plan to give Finley the opportunity to earn the starting slot going forward, as Dalton is likely to be non-tendered heading into free agency next year.

    There are now three NC State alumni starting for NFL teams:

    Phillip Rivers (Chargers): Having another great season, but carrying a team with a bad offensive line.

    Jacoby Brissett (Colts): Took over before the season started when Andrew Luck retired, and has performed at a high level.

    Finley (Bengals)

    You missed one, Wilson (Seahawks)

    Oh man! I sure did! I certainly wasn't trying to freeze Russell out.

    So yeah, it's four starting QB's -- which is truly amazing. And honestly, three of those starters are either well established with their teams (Wilson and Rivers), or heading in that direction with vigor (Bissett).

    12.5% of the starting QB's in the NFL are from QBU, NC State!
