"He took away the deep ball on three different situations," Carroll told the newspaper. "Two of them turned into turnovers. He played a couple short routes very well. ... I thought he played a very, very good game. I was really proud of him."
For the record, Green notched four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown, part of a season that's seen him catch 33 balls for 516 yards and five scores. You don't hear too many people inside the Bengals organization ripping on Green, especially at a position that can be tough to master as a rookie. He and Dalton form one of the league's most promising young duos -- something the Seahawks have sorely lacked this season.
