A.J. Green: Cleveland Killer

A.J. Green has only played the Browns twice, but he's killed them both times

The Bengals won today 23-20 after being down 17-7 at the half.  How? A.J. Green is a Browns killer.  He did it in week one when his touchdown catch in the last minutes of the fourth quarter proved to be the deciding points in an opening game defeat of Cleveland.  He did it again today, [...]

Thank You, Carson

Could Palmer be the MVP for 2011 for *not* showing up?

The 2011 Bengals were supposed to be bad.  Like epically bad—even for an organization that has made bad a tradition.  After all, the team was returning a losing coach, but not their top two wide receivers, or best cornerback.  The team was to be a young one–laughably so–in a division with the AFC Champion Steelers, the [...]

Bengals and Jags Tied 13-13 at Half

  The Bengals have survived a poor first half thanks to some outstanding plays by their defense and young offensive playmakers to head to the locker room knotted with Jacksonville at 13.  Cincinnati overcame a poor start on defense, in which Maurice Jones Drew gashed them for 41 yards and a touchdown en route to a [...]

Green Gets an 80 in Madden 12

A.J. Green is a solid player in the latest version of Madden

According to ESPN.com’s James Walker, Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green will be ranked as a respectable 80 overall in the latest version of the popular Madden video game franchise. Green is the fourth highest-rookie in the game. Hopefully, that virtually ranking translates to an impact on the field that counts. Click the image to [...]

A.J. Green: Staying Sharp in Athens, Georgia

Marvin Lewis might be smiling when A.J. Green shows up in shape.

In the latest “Everything to Prove” video installment, A.J. Green is shown working out in Athens, Georgia. Which is a lot better than what the Steelers seem to find themselves entangled in once they cross into the state of peaches. Bravo, A.J. Keep up the good work. Click here for the video.

Everything to Prove: A.J. Green

A.J. Green is just one of many Bengals receivers with a lot to prove.

NFL.com has an interesting video of A.J. Green revisiting the glory of his younger days. Click here to see it.  

Gulp!

CincyJungle passed along a Twitter exchange from Chad Ochocinco and A.J. Green (which was slightly less offensive than the one by a beleaguered New York politician), in which the Ocho offered to work out with the Bengals newest rookie. Oh boy. While the Ocho has plenty to offer in terms of footwork and route-running, he’s [...]

Should A.J. Green Start?

aj_green1

James Walker put up an interesting poll recently, asking Bengals fans who should start opposite A.J. Green. But I think Walker is getting ahead of himself. I don’t think Green should start. Not right away anyway. I saw enough from the Jerome Simpson-Andre Caldwell games down the stretch last season to give them both starting [...]
