We are going to give the edge to the Bengals. The 24-year-old has impressed in his 10-game stint so far and working offseason with Jordan Palmer is only going to make him improve with time.
The young QB is likely to make the most of the offensive unit build around him to see off the Vikings in the season opener.
The Vikings are good on the paper, but overcoming a transitioned Bengals in the away fixture seems like an uphill task for Mike Zimmer‘s men.
Is Joe Burrow ‘the whole package’?
Ken Anderson has been highly impressed with Burrow’s skills. “Obviously his physical skills are apparent. I’ve never met him, but I think his demeanour, his leadership, his poise are just outstanding in the way these guys follow him. He’s conscious of the community and he’s conscious of his position. He’s mature beyond his years,” Anderson said.
Anderson is the biggest star the Bengals ever had.
He added: “From his poise, his accuracy, his arm strength, his delivery, his leadership. I think he’s the whole package. I don’t know. I just know he’s got what it takes. There’s not much you don’t like about him.”
Burrow’s senior teammate Mike Daniels is all praise for the 24-year-old as well.
Daniels, who played with Aaron Rodgers for six seasons at Green Bay, feels that the young Bengals QB resembles Rodgers. Speaking to NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Thursday, Daniels said: “You know what I say about Joe Burrow, man. That’s like baby Aaron.”
“You don’t see many rookies step into a locker room, and you can tell, you would think he’s a four-year vet if you didn’t know who he was. I’ve been saying this since I got there. I see a lot of similarities between the two.”
Rick Dennison parts ways with Vikings
Rick Dennison has been sacked as the Minnesota Vikings assistant coach after the 63-year-old refused to get himself vaccinated prior to the upcoming NFL season.
He has been serving as the offensive line coach and run-game coordinator for the Vikings for two years. Phil Rauscher is likely to fill in Dennison’s boots.
Every coach, scout, front office executive and equipment staffer has been instructed by the league organisers to get the vaccine jabs before the season kick starts.
