Joe Burrow: The man, the myth, and when it comes to Cincinnati Bengals fans, he is already a legend.
FOX Sports’ Marcellus Wiley had a very interesting comparison on the second-year quarterback on Friday afternoon’s episode of Speak For Yourself.
“I’ma say it because I played against Tom Brady in his early years. In his first two seasons, Joe Burrow is better than Tom Brady was at that same stage,” Wiley said. “Look, they may at the same stage have the same amount of rings. At the same time, Brady had that one year to sit, watch, and then get his opportunity. Joe Burrow hit the ground running, although he got injured that same year.”
“Not only is this a good comparison, it looks like Burrow can edge him [Brady] out,” Wiley added.
Joe Burrow is currently leading the Bengals to a cinderella run for the ages with a chance to win the Super Bowl, similar to Brady in his 2nd season.
Tom Brady similarly, led the Patriots to the Super Bowl in only his 2nd season ever. Thanks to a last minute drive, he was able to set up Adam Vinatieri for the game winner.
So if Burrow does beat the Rams, he will have himself in some pretty elite company.
In three postseason games, Burrow’s completed 69 percent of his passes or 842 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.
