Just a few weeks ago, A.J. Green sat out a practice because of an illness before the home game against the Dallas Cowboys, a critical game that had the Bengals won, they could already have a playoff spot locked up, but it ended up being one of the worst of his career as he had several critical drops, including a touchdown catch that would have likely prevented the Cowboys’ rally.

The team had an agreement with the University of Cincinnati to use their practice bubble, but have opted not to use it very often. It’s time for Mike Brown to pay for a bubble to be built adjacent to the stadium. Yes, these are NFL players who have to get used to playing in the cold, but repeatedly exposing them to these conditions runs the risk of players getting sick, which is exactly what has repeatedly happened to the Bengals at the end of seasons. Maybe that’s contributed to their struggles in December games.

    I would like to point out how much of an idiot you are for thinking colds/flus are caused because mike brown is cheap and wont buy a practice bubble. These boys are not sick because they are practicing in the cold but because they are being passed germs from lets say…their kids, dirty knobs, sharing water bottles with sick people or the many other ways people get sick around this time of year. The germs thrive during this year yes because it is “cold” outside but practicing under a practice bubble is not going to protect these guys from getting sick! And besides its best they dont practice under one cause at least this way they will be prepared for any type of weather cobditions when they play.
