Bengals wide receiver is none too happy with his quarterback after losing in back to back games. Green was not afraid to say what he thought of the team’s performance during the first two weeks of NFL football.
Green said, “We are playing like sh– right now. We got to find a way to get our playmakers the ball. That’s it. It’s a superstar-driven league. You are not going to win without them.”
Green was a standout when he played for the University of Georgia and was drafted by the Bengals in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft.
The wide receiver has 10 receptions for 147 yards through two games, including a 50-yard catch against the Texans last night.
Green just wants the team to play at the level he knows they are capable of. He commented, “This offense doesn’t go without us (wide receivers), we have to be involved more early.” “Get (Brandon LaFell) the ball early, get John (Ross) the ball earlier. As one of the leaders of the offense, I feel we need a spark and need the ball in my hands somewhere, somehow. You have to find a way to get me the ball and we are not doing that right now.”
He wants the ball, and if he gets it, we know what he’ll do because he’s shown us. Andy Dalton needs to listen to A.J. and let him do what he does best.
