AJ Greens Season so far

 


During the game I made the comment I can't remember a receiving having a better rookie season as AJ Green has had so far. It was quickly, and wisely, pointed out that Randy Moss was a beast as a Rookie. After the game, I went ahead and pulled some stats to compare AJ Green and Randy Moss. The comparison I'm making will be through the first 4 games and also another through the first 5 games.

The numbers show that AJ Green is playing as well as Randy Moss through the first 4 and 5 games of the season. The only area that Randy Moss has a clear advantage in is TD receptions. In all other area's it's fairly close, with AJ Green winning most of those categories. Not shown, is that Randy Moss did have a 190 yard receiving game in his 5th game of the year, which would be the most receiving yards in a game between these two. 

 

I should also add that AJ Green is working on a strike shortened off-season, with a Rookie QB, and a rookie Offensive Coordinator. During Randy Moss rookie season the Vikings were clearly a pass first team, where theBengals are a run first team(or atleast a balanced team). Randy Moss also received favorable matchups because he had a Hall of Fame Receiver starting opposite of him in Cris Carter.

 

In closing, Randy Moss was one of the most physically gifted athletes to ever enter the NFL. If AJ Green can come even close to the career numbers that Moss put up, we have one hell of a receiver in AJ Green. I'm definitely not going to say AJ Green is, or will be, a better receiver than Randy Moss. At this point in his very young career he matches up very favorably to one of the greatest receivers to ever play the game.
