    Best Offensive College Team ever....Burrow had the best college QB championship game I have ever seen period but he was given great playings and great offensive coaches.

          I'm wanting to bet Stingley Jr for Heisman next year. As a 3 way player next year it's not a bad long shot...

            I'd say he's more an "athletic" Brady as he has that killer mojo under pressure and they seem to have about same arm strength. Roger's comparison is funny as he doesn't like to get uniform dirty, let alone get hit.

              People saying Cam had a better season must have a dent in there head from fixing the lawnmower while running. Just the bcs field goal snooze fest says it all, Dyer was mvp that game by the way.

                If the Bengals do keep him they need to draft offensive lineman in rounds 2 & 3. Another running back in 4 and hope their tight end and AJ stay on. Im just afraid that he'll become another David Carr.Get so beat up that he's out of football in four years. Thats how bad Mike Brown is as an Owner.

                  From the Bayou Bengals to the Bengals. I really don't want to see him go to Cinnci, but if that's where he goes he'll continue to lead, elevate and bring dignity. Just like he did down here. Geaux Tigers.

                                Also give due credit to LSU'S Receivers. Joe and Receivers were meshed in purpose and focus.

                                    I've been watching college football since the 70's, I've never seen a quarterback like Joe Burrow. He may be going to Cincinnati at first, but somehow he'll end up in New England.

                                        I hope a competent team trades up for him and the Bengals still have Lawrence next year, Bengals dont deserve Joe 😤

                                          Best team season ever yes .. Best QB season 2nd to Cam Newton. Yea I said it. Put some respect on his name.

                                            look all the team they beat this season.. so much respect for LSU and Burrow dropped 60 TD and 400 yard average. INSANE

                                              Cam "The Man" Newton did in my opinion. But its debatable.

                                                  People kept thinking Burrow would slip up, but he's like T'Challa. "I neva freeze".

                                                    I don't want to see Joe Burrow end up in an undeserving NFL team. He should end up with a team that needs his talent the most, but has the sensibility to put together an O-line that works best for him, with active offensive players and a solid wall at scrimmage. Also, maybe a team structure that is not dictated by coaches' cliques and the front office's tomfoolery. I don't want to see him become the next Andrew Luck.

                                                      Pump the freaking brakes, ESPN. Last year it was Tua, until it was Trevor. Now it’s Joe. Luckily for Joe, he gets to exit the conversation. On the flip side, he gets the Bengals.

                                                        Can we essentially say Joe burrow is the goat g o a t of being a quarterback and can we also put them on the quarterback Mount Rushmore up Tom Brady Drew Brees and other significant quarterbacks in the history of football on all levels?
