The Bud Light Fan Forum was supposed to be an opportunity for Hugh Douglas to flex his muscle as a talented NFL analyst. Apparently though the average fantasy football team owner might have more knowledge of the league than Douglas who was left swinging in the dark as he tried to answer a pretty simple question regarding Bengals receiver AJ Green. Credit to Jay Harris for not making a face as Douglas goes down in flames.

Kind of an add question to start with as there are probably a handful of receivers in the league that can probably be classified in a tier ahead of Green who I'm a huge fan of. Even though the question is kind of odd, it's really a softball as I don't think most people would say Green is the best receiver in the league. The Bengals like to run the ball, their quarterback is not a top 15 QB, and there is little help around him in the receiving game. You see what I did there Douglas? I improvised an answer that makes sense.

We should note that Douglass answered the first question on the fan forum with just a firm one word answer "no" when asked if teams will figure out Cam Newton. Why he chose to give a one word answer for something he probably had more knowledge of, yet flounder around thinking AJ Green was in this year's draft class is befuddling.

Douglas digs himself into a bigger hole as he says Green can hopefully follow in the footsteps of Julio Jones, a player Green pretty much outperformed last season as evidenced below.

Protege AJ Green Role Model Julio Jones

It should be noted that Jones had an extra game to put up those stats and oh yeah big time talents like Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, Michael Turner, and Roddy White around him. AJ Green's supporting cast includes Andy Dalton, Jerome Simpson, and Cedric Benson. Basically guys that you're not taking in the first dozen rounds in your fantasy draft. It's a bit of an insult that Green flew under the radar of a ESPN NFL analyst when statistically he was a better performer than Jones.

Hugh if you're watching, I've embedded this grainy crash course on AJ Green featuring terrible music to help you get up to speed.
