    Ex-NFL GM compares Joe Burrow to future HOF QB

    Everyone is waiting to see what Joe Burrow does for an encore. Last season, the LSU quarterback rose from relative obscurity to have arguably the greatest season for a quarterback in college football history.

    Going from national champion LSU to the Cincinnati Bengals likely won’t yield immediate results. But some believe it is only a matter of time until Burrow leads his NFL franchise to greener pastures.

    A former NFL general manager no stranger to transcendent quarterbacks believes Burrow has what it takes to have great success in the league for years to come.

    “There are similarities to Peyton (Manning),” former Indianapolis Colts GM Bill Polian said on 106.7 The Fan’s The Sports Junkies on Monday. “There really are. He’s much more mobile than Peyton was, but otherwise, the accuracy, the anticipation, the calm demeanor, the competitiveness. He’s got the so-called intangibles that every great quarterback has. That comes shining through when you watch the film.”

    Polian famously drafted Manning with the No. 1 overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft. What followed was more than a decade of unprecedented success for the organization.

    It was between Ryan Leaf and Peyton Manning; and needless to say, he chose wisely.

    Joe Burrow: I’ll live off my endorsements and save all my NFL paychecks

    Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has a smart idea for how to spend all the money from the four-year, $36.1 million guaranteed contract he signed this week.

    Or actually how not to spend it.

    Burrow said on Friday that he doesn’t intend to spend a single penny of that money he’s making from the Bengals. He’ll live off the money he makes from endorsements and put all the money from his NFL paychecks into savings and investments.

    “I don’t plan on spending any contract money,” Burrow said. “I’m just gonna live off the marketing money and let that accrue in my bank account.”

    That’s wise. There’s a long list of professional athletes who have made tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of dollars and then gone broke.

    Kurt Warner reveals advice to Joe Burrow for rookie season

    Joe Burrow has a lot on his plate entering his rookie season in 2020. The Cincinnati Bengals drafted him with the No. 1 overall pick in April and veteran incumbent starter Andy Dalton was seen heading to Dallas.

    With the role of franchise quarterback starting immediately, Burrow will have a decent set of characters on offense to ease his transition into the NFL. Not to mention head coach Zac Taylor’s offense being quarterback friendly. Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner, who didn’t start until his second season, has the secret to Burrow’s success right off the bat.

    Speaking on Monday night’s NFL Total Access, Warner revealed some sage words of advice to Burrow as he enters his rookie year.

    “Trust your teammates,” Warner said. “It’s easy to go in and think you have to live up to the hype early on. You have to live up to the No. 1 pick and the Heisman and everything you did and all of the expectations people have of you. Oftentimes when you come into a league with the players in the world, I look at their offense and I think it’s got some good players around him with AJ Green and Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd and a number of guys. Lean on those guys. Don’t feel like you have to do everything early. Just play the game. Let it come to you. Trust those guys to make plays for you.”

    Warner pointed out star receiver Green in addition to Mixon and Boyd being key cogs for Burrow on offense. If Taylor’s offense is predicated on quick releases and short and intermediate throws, Burrow could immediately be comfortable and be able to open up the offense downfield.
