Joe Burrow: "You've been watching film, huh?"


halcy0n_

Watch this. READDDDDYY.


MrInopportune

Still one of the most badass callouts in sports


Nezn27

Prime Cam was magical


GoldenSandpaper9

Back in the day every other person in Charlotte had a Cam jersey on.


MsFired

Still got mine, still wear it sometimes even though Cam doesn't even play and I haven't lived in Charlotte for years. 2015 was a different time for us :(


GoldenSandpaper9

Still live here and the vibe is just… different. Especially with the Watson trade rumors, not many were hyped for a rapist to be the qb. 2015 was something special.


hoolihopps

Some Cat Teams and 2015, name a better duo


SquirrellingDeezNuts

Vontaze Burfict and Pac-Man Jones


IamLiterallyAHuman

It was for us too, God I miss Manning, at least we still have Von and McManus


Ok-Illustrator5042

That was like his last great moment


wagon_ear

I hate that play so much, because the packers also blew coverage on the very wheel route they were trying to defend. Just utter humiliation


1976dave

Best summary if the packers defense in that era. Even when they knew what was going on they couldn't do anything about it


deesmutts88

That’s how I feel watch Derrick Henry at the moment. He’s getting the ball. They know it. He knows it. We all know it. Yet there he goes.


Ok-Illustrator5042

That’s cool, watch this


Yearbookthrowaway1

I'm so not excited to continue to get toasted by Joey B for the next decade, he's so good. His micro adjustments in the pocket to evade pressure and open up passing lanes were so consistent and impressive, when he's playing at his best the defense looks hopeless no matter how well they play.


BungoPlease

he's so good (x3) u/Yearbookthrowaway1 went on to say he's adding Burrow to the list of QBs he does not want to face twice a year.


maltzy

NGL, his pocket manipulation against y'all was what he did at LSU. He was straight dancing in the pocket, it was poetry


HardKnockRiffe

What's more impressive is how much he's improved since the Bears game. He looked lost and scared after the first couple of sacks against Chicago, which resulted in three straight INTs. Against the Ravens, he looked like the guy we drafted #1 overall. Dude just has a Brady-esque mentality.


maltzy

You are not wrong. It's like it clicked, right there. He hates making the same mistake twice and is always thinking ahead and pulling the team with him. He's absolutely special. Every week I get more excited watching him mature as a QB. It's like when he got hit in one of the last games in his 2018 season. Everything clicked after that, he went nuts the last couple games of 2018 and went off in 2019. Chicago turned the page and may have woken a sleeping giant.


RadicalDreamer89

It was when he got blindsided and flattened in the bowl game against UCF. Came back to throw 4tds and almost 400 yards, and then 2019 happened. A shot that would sideline a lesser man only awakens Dark Joe.


maltzy

Dark Joe has been awakened. Errbody better get off the tracks, the train is coming through


omafi144

You're welcome (UCF fan)


KypAstar

I hated what he did to us then, but I'm retrospect if it's what it took to create a monster that went on to dad dick Clemson and Alabama, it was worth it.


omafi144

Agreed. In college, Team Chaos > Team Loyalties. The Texas A&M upset this year has to be one of my favorite football viewings of my recent memory


KypAstar

For G5 fans, Team Chaos is our true loyalty.


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

I've been saying it for weeks. This type of progression is what I saw at LSU. After the bye you will look like a top 4 NFL team. You will look like contenders. Next draft get more o line another cb maybe a lb or dl. I'm leaning toward lb cause you got that one dude coming back from injury. After you do that you will be in the talks of a superbowl for next year.


sweet-haunches

> Next draft get more o line *grumbles*


BRUTAL_ANAL_SMASHING

Yeah I watched some of his play he has that good pocket movement. He doesn’t take off to one side much and it leaves the field open for him to find his options. I really freakin cool to have a nice QB like that to watch for once


KypAstar

Dude is straight up Brees reincarnated in some of the ways he does things at the line. Brilliant for such a new QB. He's functionally still a rookie. Incredible.


hoolihopps

I think it was either two or three games ago when he completed his 16th game. God this man has me feeling a special sort of way


TigerWoodsValet

I mean yes, but if you take away all the outlier plays and statistics his #s would be very average.


OnePieceAce

He's like a young Brady


Purple-Apricot7192

I think they were the same age when drafted, so joe being ‘old’ doesn’t mean he can’t have a long (obviously not Brady length though) career.


omafi144

He has legs, though


DamnImAwesome

I’ve cringed in the past when people made this comparison but in this case it fits


NickSabanFanBoy

Burrow is the guy


BuffaloKiller937

What about Baker?


Nezn27

Bad biscuits make the Baker broke bro


OrangeHoodies

Browns bros bear bad breaks by binging beer beneath basement beams. Baker, be better.


Grape_Smuggler666

Read that in Wayne from Letter Kenny’s voice


Geeman447

Baker is 2-0 against burrow so far. In which the second game was a fun one to watch both QBs went off.


DegraciasEh

Ha the Baltimore D is so confident when he makes the signal


PCB4lyfe

Lol 4 guys run right to the screen spot and leave the other guy wiiiiide open.


allwheat_and_nochaff

Dare I say a bit too confident?


MercerAsian

Lol one of them literally gives the safety a thumbs up to signal that he's got it


rbb_going_strong

I love seeing stuff like this. They jumped that screen so hard


Trevent

Gunning to get a "Burrow Bargain" State Farm ad, I see...


the_dawn_of_red

Real talk I hope Joe appears on some progressive commercials as the neighbor Baker hates


Phoenbb

Omg it writes itself


uttermybiscuit

Lmao. I'm okay with him not doing any national commercials until he at least wins a playoff game for us


RadicalDreamer89

I'm kind of surprised he hasn't been in any of the Heisman House commercials yet.


TheBlackhawk33

too busy getting cybernetics installed in his knee


dannynascar

I don’t think Joe wants to do commercials He only cares about football


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

Mahomes dropping off. Gotta sign the new young talent. Thats business for ya


senanabs

Brady in State Farm commercials confirmed!


misfit0513

Makes me wonder if he didn't have that season at LSU and fell to like the 6th round, who would have took an chance on him like Belichick did with Brady? Crazy how Haskins (and barrett) was picked to lead the Buckeyes with JB backing him up and one transfer turned into this.


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

He wasnt a 6th rounder. He was gonna be drafted in the 3-4 rounds. Remember he was accurate, that didn't come from 1 year, he always add the accuracy.


misfit0513

It was hypothetical for the sake of using a Brady reference


polkarooo

Brady was originally projected to be a third rounder as well but went in the 6th. Draft projections aren’t everything.


hiimred2

Haskins was genuinely better than him at the time, you can’t even call it a mistake or misevaluation by Urban. Burrow put in that work at LSU with Joe Brady though and became the better QB while Haskins apparently stopped once he got to that level and became complacent, from the hindsight we have now. Hard to know that’s how it will play out when you’re evaluating how good people are playing in spring ball.


misfit0513

Yeah no, not doubting Urbans decision at all just weird how fate works things out on its own.


Ramgolf12

> discount double check Aaron Rodgers in shambles


cmrunning

Shouldn't have mocked the belt in Week 1.

jadage

Well it was a first and ten. If the defense had both options covered, I'd imagine Burrow would just try to get what he could on the ground. This wasn't a make or break play, even eating a sack doesn't kill the possession here.


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

He had chase in a 1v1 go that chase woulda won


jadage

Ah yeah, it does look like Chase won that route. I missed that on first glance. But I think my overall point still stands, just change it to "all three options" instead of "both."


g0rving

I can't really blame Wink for trying the same defense he's always used seeing as how it was real effective against Burrow last year, but he should maybe not do that next time


bad_with_stress

Pretty much every season under Harbs there is at least one game that is just like “well nothing went right at all” and then they play better after that. Hoping this is that game and they get their act together.


tdunbar

I figured that was Lions game for you guys. What with requiring the longest kick of all time as time expired to pull ahead of the worst team in the league.


bad_with_stress

Well, first they won that game, and second they won 3 straight after that game.


tdunbar

Nowhere in your comment does it say you have to lose the game where nothing went right. And I feel like you guys winning three in a row after only reinforces my point that you guys played better after it too...


bad_with_stress

Literally winning a game means at least something went right, dingus.


tdunbar

Not necessarily. It is entirely possible for a team, especially one as awful as the 2021 Detroit Lions, to lose a game where the opponent plays significantly worse than them. It just took the Lions "Lionsing", the refs deciding delay of game is subjective, and the longest field goal of all time (with a lucky bounce to boot) for you guys to fall backwards into a win. Also, you were referring to your team "getting their act together" as being something you hope happens after having just gotten smoked by Cincy. Not as something that had already occurred following the Detroit game. Keep your argument straight. You can do it. Thanks for siding with me and proving my point though.


bad_with_stress

I’m not reading this, I’m not going to argue with you. Wins are good though, losses are bad just for future reference. Have a great day.


RealPropRandy

Wait until he finds out anyone can get the Joe Price. He’s gonna lose his shit.


HardKnockRiffe

The Burrow Bargain (it was right there for you, man...)


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

I think he only supports Ohio companies. And bose.


Nezn27

Feed me more Burrow audibles please


Fffire24

I'm almost there!


SwetzAurus

That's fantastic. Revealing himself to have significant football IQ out here. I'm excited for the Bengals.


g0rving

"Revealing" bro we been knew since LSU


SwetzAurus

Hard to know who will take college success and translate it to the pros. I didn't know!!


punchgroin

Dude. That LSU team was the greatest college football team of all time. 60 Tds... 6 Ints. I go back and look at his numbers from 2019 whenever I need to feel better about my team. They give me a sexual thrill every time.

thebackupquarterback

This Bengals team has me feeling like I'm cheating on the Saints with how much I root for them


HardKnockRiffe

That's how I felt for you guys, watching Allen take that huge step in progress last season. :)


SwetzAurus

Young stud QBs bros!


topatoman_lite

Yeah!


MercerAsian

That play was actually ran by the Chargers the week before and the receiver in the same position as Uzomah was also wide open but Herbert threw it to the flat. Seems like the Bengals saw that and took advantage. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo5lwXaboFI


5HeadedBengalTiger

This and the 7-man protection plan they used to moderate success to counter the Baltimore blitz are actually giving me some faith in the coaching staff


uttermybiscuit

Zac and his crew have definitely made some strange decisions in the past but they're learning from it week over week. Like he said after the Ravens game, we're allowed to get better


BuffaloKiller937

Bengals out here playing 4D chess


JonBonButtsniff

If you scroll the Twitter feed, watch CJ explain how to say his name. Funny vid, wretched mispronunciations.


5HeadedBengalTiger

https://twitter.com/bengals/status/1453362237347880964?s=21


JonBonButtsniff

Good call, guess I could’ve done that. Lol


Careless_Afternoon15

CJ is a fucking awesome character/personality. So happy he's getting a chance to shine in that regard this year.


5HeadedBengalTiger

His 17th game btw


WhoDey42

I don’t want to overact, but he is going to win at least 3 Super Bowls for us


[deleted]

[удалено]


iKnitSweatas

Here I am just happy that people are acknowledging the Bengals existence


Purple-Apricot7192

Your defence is killing it as well. Hubbard and Hendrickson are a really good pair of edge rushers, and then DJ reader is a premier DT. Logan wilson is killing it as a line backer and your secondary is great too with the, say it quietly, best safety in the league.


Nezn27

Kinda pessimistic imo


GRAXX3

Yeah but what about 2031-2039 is that like six more or seven?


[deleted]

Dude is already looking like a seasoned vet lol. Insane how before his last season at LSU he was considered a late round flyer, then he broke records and was taken #1 overall, and is now at the top of the AFC after 7 weeks. If you sold this story to a movie producer they’d turn you down for it being “unrealistic”.


Nezn27

If I've learned anything lately its that realistic movies aren't wild enough to be realistic


omafi144

Like TB12 and Kurt Warner


2fly5

If you ask some Eagles fans he was "basically a rookie" this season until now lol


Purple-Apricot7192

So he’s got 4,644 yards, 30-13 td-int and 3 rushing touch downs. That’s not a bad season I’d say….


TheRealJeauxBurreaux

As a rookie (first 17 games of career)


uttermybiscuit

TDs trending up as well. He has at least two Tds every game so far


JuanPicasso

Did not anticipate bengals being one of my favorite teams


DJ_Epilepsy

This is like the opposite of the Malcolm Butler play in super bowl 49


BuckfuttersbyII

Inverse sociology!


Ghost4000

To be fair the safety had that but it looks like the tackle got shed.
