Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals simply getting to this point is impressive. No one thought the former No. 1 overall pick would have his squad in the Super Bowl in just the second year of his career but here we are.

Burrow sort of came out of nowhere in 2019 at LSU, throwing for 5,671 yards, 60 touchdowns, and six interceptions en route to a National Championship for the Tigers. He won the Heisman Trophy that season as well, which came as a shock to no one.

It wasn’t surprising when Burrow became the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, landing with the two-win Bengals. He definitely had his work cut out for him, joining an organization that was notorious for not signing free agents and wanting to “build from within”.

After winning just three games, Burrow went down with a season-ending injury 10 games into his rookie season. It felt like the organization was going to ruin this kid if they couldn’t get him a good offensive line and while it’s still the biggest weakness on the team, Burrow has gotten them to this point in spite of that.

According to Matt Brown, Burrow now can accomplish something no quarterback has ever been able to do.

As Brown mentions in the tweet above, Burrow could be the first-ever quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy, a national title in college, and a Super Bowl. That would be incredibly impressive to do as is but accomplishing all three of those things in the span of three years is even more incredible.

The Bengals clearly found themselves a special quarterback and these kinds of players need to be treasured. We’ve seen how good the Chiefs have been with Patrick Mahomes, as they’ve dominated the AFC the past several years, but guess who just took them down IN Arrowhead?

That would be Sir Joe Burrow.

Burrow is 2-0 against the team who had represented the AFC in the past two Super Bowls and now he has a chance to add yet another major accomplishment on his resumé.

To go from four wins to the Super Bowl is an incredible accomplishment and Burrow is the reason Cincinnati is where they are. Go win it all, Joey Franchise.
