Joe Burrow is a winner. He’s used to winning at every level. He also hasn’t had a losing season in sports possibly ever in his 23 years on this Earth. One thing’s for certain: he isn’t looking for that to change in the NFL.
On a recent appearance of Shaq’s ‘The Big Podcast’ this week, Burrow said this about entering the NFL:
“I just want to get drafted to a good team, good organization that is going to maximize my talents. I’ve won everywhere that I’ve been. I’ve never had a losing season in sports from the moment I was 5 years old. I’m not a loser. I just want to go somewhere where I can win.“
Burrow also went on to say this –
“Teams are picking at the top for a reason. And I feel like, like I said before, I’ve won everywhere that I’ve ever been. I feel like if anybody can do it, I can do it.”
Everyone and their mother knows that the Cincinnati Bengals would be stupid not to take Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick. What’s concerning is the fact that the LSU QB wants to play for a “good organization”, which Cincinnati has lately taken heat for not being one. They benched their long-tenured quarterback Andy Dalton on his birthday and chose to rebuild and move on from him (2-14 record). They had a team practice outside on a terrible field, which caused wide receiver A.J. Green to miss the entire 2019 season before it even started. They also have made questionable decisions within management over the last few years and are now entering their second season with Zac Taylor as head coach.
At the end of the day, Burrow doesn’t have much of a say in if he actually gets picked first overall, but it will most certainly be top news from now until draft week.
