Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton may not have a playoff win, but he has enemies after his lackluster performance during a 27-10 wild-card loss against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

Dalton threw two interceptions and fumbled twice (lost one) during the loss. He finished with a 67.0 passer rating during Cincinnati’s third consecutive playoff loss with Dalton as starting quarterback. Dalton had a 51.4 passer rating during the 2011 playoffs and 44.7 last year.

As a result, several NFL fans ripped Dalton on Twitter after the loss.

Dalton, welcome to Tony Romo’s world. Of course, Romo usually struggles in December and does not give his fan base a chance to suffer in the postseason.

Unfortunately for Dalton, his playoff failures have put a magnifying glass on his career and drawn a lot of angry followers.
