I don't see Dalton being unseated in 2014 barring injury or a complete meltdown performance, but mediocre play is going to result in him having zero bargaining leverage during 2015 contract negotiations.  If he wants Flacco level money, he's not going to get it without winning several games in the post season.  That's what Flacco did.  He won the SB and said 'pay up'.  It's easy to predict that if he doesn't get the Bengals into the post-season, Mike Brown won't pay Dalton what he wants, and AJ McCarron steps right up to the plate.
