On the flipside, two players that need to step their game up, include two superstars, A.J. Green and Geno Atkins.
Yes, it feels weird even suggesting this, but they do need to step up. A.J. Green is going to be fine, but with missing some camp, he does appear to be a little rusty. Anyone can tell that he and Andy Dalton are not always on the same page and for a guy who is known for his sure-hands, having balls bounce off of them is also uncharacteristic.
Again, A.J. will put all the pressure on himself to be successful and will have another outstanding pro-bowl year.
