Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Seattle...:
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman impressed coach Pete Carroll in his first career start on Sunday.
But Bengals receiver A.J. Green did not impress Richard Sherman.
Want to know what Sherman thought of the Bengals vaunted rookie? Well, he was pretty up-front about his opinion when speaking with intrepid KJR reporter Curtis Crabtree after the game.
“He’s probably one of the most overrated receivers out there,” Sherman told Crabtree. “He wasn’t anything special. Dalton is a good quarterback. He makes good decisions. But A.J. Green is just a lot of noise-talking and bad routes.”
Tell us how you really feel, Richard.
Carroll had much nicer things to say about Sherman, who made his first career interception and deflected another pass that was intercepted by Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor.
“Richard covered very well,” Carroll said. “He took away the deep ball on three different situations and two of them turned into turnovers. He played a couple short rou...

Bengals rookie A.J. Green caught a long touchdown against the Seahawks, but Seattle rookie fifth-round pick Richard Sherman did not come away impressed. “I would say he’s probably one of the most overrated receivers out there,” Sherman said on 950 AM in Seattle via the Seattle Times. “He wasn’t anything special.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green‘s NFL career is off to a solid start with 33 catches, 516 yards, and 5 TD’s through 7 games. He’s displayed good chemistry with fellow rookie Andy Dalton and the two of them are a big reason why Cincinnati is 5-2. This past weekend Green had 4 [...]
By most accounts, wideout A.J. Green's been everything the surprising 5-2 Bengals hoped for and more when they took him with the fifth overall pick in April's draft, but Seahawks rookie cornerback Sherman is unimpressed.
One of the biggest surprises of the 2012 NFL season thus far has been the emergence of the Cincinnati Bengals, who are off to a 5-2 start and riding a four game win streak, due largely to the play of rookie sensations AJ. Green and Andy Dalton. Together, the wide receiver taken with the #4 overall pick and the second-round quarterback (respectively) are off to...
The Cincinnati Bengals' neanderthalic owner Mike Brown shuffles around in a cave strewn with excrement, bones and viscera, dressed in a gray and ragged pelt of some big striped cat, gnawing on the greasy thigh of a gray seahawk dead some three or four days now and starting to rot. He roots in his own filth, muttering and cackling triumphantly. Somehow, after a decade of sullen...

In what felt an awful lot like a repeat of the Week 4 game against the Falcons, the Seahawks lost but managed to get their offense back on track after a terrible start with Whitehurst under center. Coverage on special teams is still a concern, and the offensive line struggled all game, but there were plenty of positives, too. Richard Sherman played much better than anyone could...
The Cincinnati Bengals are using their defense and a couple of rookies on offense to stay in the AFC North race.
Quarterback Andy Dalton threw a pair of first-half touchdown passes, one to fellow rookie A.J. Green, Brandon Tate returned a punt 56 yards for a touchdown with 3:22 left and the Bengals won their fourth straight with a 27-12 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
