A.J. Green hasn’t been shy about describing the play of himself and his team overall, especially in Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns, and he admits his boy language during that game reflected his frustration and overall play in that game.
He knows that his body language was bad because it showed up his quarterback Andy Dalton:
"One of the things Green worried about is that he showed up Dalton with his visible frustration during Sunday’s 17-6 loss in which the pair was totally out of sync.“You don’t want to show up that guy,” Green said. “I sensed it in myself. That’s not me. I watch the game film and my arms are flailing and all loose and that’s not me. That’s not the way I act.”"
It’s great to see Green is being a great team player and owning up to his mistakes.
Maybe Dalton should take a cue from him and do the same while stepping up his play. He’ll have to this week if he wants to help the Bengals get a rebound-win against the undefeated New England Patriots.
