A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball.
Green expressed this sentiment Friday and as we noted then, he and Dalton are not just tight on the field, but off as well. The Bengals should definitely take note of the relationship when they are making decisions on contracts. Keeping Green happy will be important as he is a game-breaking player. That's not to say that he won't be able to work with another quarterback, but if the Bengals don't have to make a change, perhaps they shouldn't. It's not like Dalton isn't a strong quarterback. He's just not at the elite level.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
