Hue Jackson calls Andy Dalton and A.J. Green best combo in NFL

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

In an interview with Sirius Radio, Hue Jackson made a bold statement about his QB/WR duo.

New Bengals offensive coordinator is a very demanding coach, but he's equally as praiseworthy when it comes to his guys. Count A.J. Green and Andy Dalton as two of his guys, and he thinks those two are the best quarterback/wide receiver combo in football.

This doesn't come as any surprise, given his past praise of the two. Hue has made it no secret he wants Dalton to be great, but he also said he wants Green to be the greatest of all-time.

The fact that these two are even in the discussion as the best duo in the NFL is mostly due to the play of Green. He's already caught more passes (260) than any other player in NFL history during their first three seasons.

This past season, Green set career highs in receptions (98) and receiving yards (1,426, second-most total in Bengals history), while also scoring 11 touchdowns. He had six 100-yard games, including a franchise record five in a row.

Dalton is no slouch either though. In 48 career games, he's completed 992/1,630 passes (60.9%) for 11,360 yards (7.0 yards per attempt) with 80 TDs vs. 49 interceptions. He's rushed 145 times for 455 yards (3.1 yards per carry) with seven TDs.

In 2013, Dalton completed 363/586 passes (61.9%) for 4,293 yards (7.3 ypa) with 33 TDs and 20 interceptions while rushing 61 times for 183 yards (3.0 ypc) and two TDs.

Do you agree with Hue's bold proclamation?
