Dalton to Green NFL's best combo?

Posted: Updated:

Cincinnati offensive coordinator Hue Jackson feels he has the best pitch-and-catch combo in the league right now, Andy Dalton to A.J. Green.

In an interview with Sirius XM NFL last week, Jackson said "I think they're the best in the game in my opinion. I know people will fight that and say differently, but I've watched these guys and these guys have grown. They came in together. They started off hot, they're still hot. Every year statistically, they've gotten better."

Jackson is entering his first year as the OC in Cincinnati, but he was there as an assistant last season.

Green went from 65 catches in 2011 to 97 in 2012 and 98 in 2013. Green's 260 career receptions are the most by a receiver in NFL history through a player's first three seasons. Green's also improved on his yardage total in each of this three years as a Bengal.

"I think both of these guys are in the prime of their careers," Jackson said. "I wouldn't change the two guys I have for anybody at this point because these guys know how to do it together."
