3 Things To Know About Bengals Super Bowl 56 QB Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow is becoming a legend in Cincinnati. In just his second year in the NFL, the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback has managed to take the franchise to the playoffs and win their first postseason game in over 20 years. Even better, Burrow has led the Bengals to a spot in the grandest stage of football, as they are about to face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 56. But before that, let’s get to know the man of the moment for the Bengals a little bit more.

Joe Burrow could join an exclusive NFL club with a win in Super Bowl 56

Burrow is on the cusp of pulling off what appears to be an incredibly rare feat in the sport of football. If the Bengals (+3.5) beat Los Angeles, Burrow would be getting a seat in what’s currently a two-man table of starting quarterbacks who have won a national championship in college and a Super Bowl. Right now, that exclusive club only has Joe Namath and Joe Montana. It seems that just having the name “Joe” is already a good sign for Burrow, but really, it’s all about his game. Namath and Montana are both Hall of Fame quarterbacks whose legacies are safe forever. Namath played for the Alabama Crimson Tide in college and won Super Bowl III with the New York Jets. (Yes, the Jets used to be good.) As for Montana, Joe Cool won a title with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish before jumping into the pros and collecting multiple Super Bowl rings as the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers. 

Joe Burrow was a Buckeye before becoming a Tiger

It’s no secret that Burrow was with the Ohio State Buckeyes first before he transferred to SEC to play for the LSU Tigers. Still, that’s a fact not many people know about. Burrow spent his initial three years of eligibility in college in Columbus, where he was a backup to JT Barrett from his second to the third year. Then he left Ohio State in 2018, thinking that he won’t win a starting gig against Dwayne Haskins, he left the Buckeyes and moved to Baton Rouge as a graduate transfer. What happened next was something that left Buckeyes fateful shaking their heads, as Burrow blossomed into a collegiate start and won a Heisman Trophy in 2019 – and a National Championship. Burrow led LSU to a 42-25 win against the Clemson Tigers in the 2020 National Championship Game wherein he generated 463 passing yards and five touchdowns thrown to go with a rushing TD. 

Tom Brady believes Burrow made a great decision

Brady, who had just retired from playing football, spoke about Burrow’s decision to leave Ohio State for LSU. Of course, there’s a bit of a trolling on the part of Brady, as he is a product of the Buckeyes’ most bitter rival, Michigan.

“I know, Joe, obviously a great player. I think one of the great decisions he ever made was leaving Ohio State to get out of that godforsaken place and go to LSU,” Brady joked. “As a Michigan man, I could tell how smart he was when he did that. Thank God. That was one of the best decisions you ever made, Joe.”

Well, Burrow is looking to win something Brady has won seven times. Perhaps Burrow can hear from Brady again if he gets the job done against LA in Bengals-Rams Super Bowl 56.
