Bengals' star WR frustrated over lack of action in postseason
|A.J. Green had fun in last Sunday’s Pro Bowl with three touchdowns, but he admitted that the disappointment over the Bengals’ 19-13 loss to the Texans in the first round of the playoffs still stings, even more so than last year. “It’s more disappointing because we had the team and we could have won that game if we put the plays together. We knew with that game we played one of our worst games,” Green said on Thursday after making an appearance for Gatorade. “Last year no one expected us to make the playoffs.” He also admitted that there was frustration over not being targeted or having a catch during the first half. Green finished with 4 receptions for 80 yards, including a 45-yard reception during the third quarter, which set up a field goal. Green nearly had a go-ahead touchdown during the fourth quarter, but Andy Dalton overthrew the ball in the end zone. (Cincinnati Enquirer)|
FF Today's Take: Though he slowed down somewhat over the second half of the season, there is no question that Green should be regarded as one of the league's elite NFL wide receivers.
