CINCINNATI - When a receiver runs the wrong route, Andy Dalton isn't shy about taking him aside and correcting the problem.
The quarterback is more comfortable with his role as a leader entering his second season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He was so concerned about learning the play book as a rookie last season that he left a lot of things up to his coaches and teammates.
They see a difference in him as the team holds its minicamp in Cincinnati this week. As offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth put it, it's Dalton's team this year and it'll go as far as he can take it.
Dalton and rookie receiver A.J. Green made the Pro Bowl last year and helped the Bengals reach the playoffs before losing in the first round to Houston.
