A.J. Green knows he can’t let emotions get the best of him


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver 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, especially on the sideline on several occasions when the ball wasn’t thrown to him, or it was thrown inaccurately and didn’t give him a chance to make a play.

He knows that, even in tough times, he can’t let his emotions get the best of him, because doing so 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.”
