Bengals Rumors: AJ Green Says Andy Dalton Not The Reason For Team's Playoff Struggles

The Cincinnati Bengals have lost their playoff openers four times in a row, naturally leading to plenty of rumblings and grumblings over whether or not starting quarterback Andy Dalton is the right man to lead the team to the next level.

Star wide receiver AJ Green believes that the intense focus on Dalton is unwarranted, and that the team's failure to advance is a full team issue.

“In those big games, we haven’t played well as a football team. I think you can’t blame one guy for us losing those games,” Green said, via NBC's Pro Football Talk.

Green and Dalton have built quite the working relationship over the past four seasons, with that relationship playing a huge role in AJ Green's rise to prominence as one of the NFL's elite receivers.

So, it's no surprise that Green also told NBC Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio that his hope is to reach an agreement on a contract extension to remain in Cincinnati when negotiations go full bore this offseason.
