Joe had an amazing career and when he got his opportunity he took advantage of it. Can't wait to see him be the franchise QB for the Bengals.

As far as what happened at OSU, it's hard to say that Urban made the wrong decision. If you look at the 2018 season stats and compare Burrows to Haskins, Haskins had the far better year. And the decision of making Haskins the starter is what made Joe decide to go elsewhere. Obviously Joe had a much better season than Fields this year. I think if Haskins stays another year, he goes on to have another amazing season like he did in 2018 for OSU. But it all worked out in the end for Joe and that's all that matters.

Some players are not good practice player, but given a fair shake can prove you wrong. Don't know if this was Joe's case. Whenever I saw him at OSU he didn't have the time to show his talent. Joe seem like a guy that needs pressure and practice wasn't doing it for him. I don't think mop ups was enough pressure for him either. When I watched LSU, Joe was looking over the defense as soon as he left the huddle. If the right team and coach get him he will be a star in the pros.

Joe is a class act. He thanked all of his coaches, OSU and LSU. He wasn't ready to play at OSU out of high school and there is no shame in that, very few are, and I am sure he didn't like being low on the depth chart. However, he put in his work and did his time and improved. That in it's self shows his character. Tom Brady wasn't great from the get go but he did what he had to do to improve himself. Joe did what was best for Joe and I can't blame him. They have been saying for several years, even when Les Miles was the coach at LSU, they were one player, that being a QB, away from being a great team. Joe was that one player. I feel bad for next year's LSU QB, huge shoes to fill.

I don't care where Joe plays next year, yes I do, not Cincy, because I have very little faith that the Bungals management will get good professional players around him. But even if he goes to Cincy, I will be rooting for Joe and the Bengals.

Thanks Joe for taking us along for the ride and all the best in the NFL and beyond.

Urbans biggest miss in an outstanding career. Burrow is/was hands down the best QB in the room. With Ryan Day and the talent on the Buckeye roster I believe Ohio state wins 1 for sure , maybe 2 national titles .
I always liked that week 4 win over Jackson in 2012. Athens couldn't catch the ball and Jackson was controlling the clock. Burrow took off running and scored 15 unanswered points to win. That's when I knew he was something different

Yeah beating a 5-5 Jackson is the standard for all heisman quarterbacks 😂

It will be pretty neat that the new Cincinnati Bengals QB will be a Southern Ohio kid..... Hopefully the Bengals will have an improved line next year which will help Burrow adapt more comfortably in the league.
He says he won't eat that crappy chilli they got down there..... :lol:

But he will eat Burrows Burritos. They will be featured in Athens soon along with the Heisman Hotdog.

Congrats Athens and Joe Burrow....from a football fan

Post by ravensfan09 »

Congratulations Joe Burrow on a fantastic season as an LSU Tiger. Winning the National Championship and a Heisman Trophy all in one season is unbelievable.

In a day where everybody wants to talk about how great they are, and how great their respective school is, and all the offers they get, etc.

Athens and Joe did it the right way. They went to the State Finals....played a fantastic game...and then cane back home and went about their business. Multiple players went Division 1...4 off that particular team...2 to the Big Ten. They were humble....and had class.

Joe you didn't forget to be real....as a Heisman winner you thanked your Buckeye family and southeast Ohio. You didn't try to be something you weren't, you just wanted to represent ALL of US the very best you could. You used your platform to help others...not yourself. Again, in a me first society, that is rare.

Joe...please keep doing the same. Be humble. Be classy. Be yourself. Keep being the Joe Burrow that didn't need for attention, but rather let his play speak for itself. Athens and ALL of your southeast Ohio fans are proud.

Hope to see you back in Ohio soon!

Go Bengals!

Parade by The Burrow family home

Post by Cowboy22 »

With it looking like Joe will be the first pick on the 23rd and him saying that he will be at his parents home watching. What are the chances of having an organized parade led by the local police department. Social distancing shouldn't be a problem as we will be in our cars. Just a thought

I think what is happening for Joe Burrows is absolutely wonderful. I also think that if he is indeed the first overall pick that April 23 should be adopted as Joe Burrows Day in Athens county.

Lets discuss the Joe Burrows is First Parade. I think honoring Joe Burrows accomplishments in this manner would be awesome. But in light of current events there would need to be some ground rules.

1. Everyone would need a face mask. Seems like a great marketing ploy would be to give everyone a mask to wear that said "Burrows #1". I think it would give great color to the parade if some were in Athens colors, some in LSU colors, and some in Bengals colors. Also we could sell his various jerseys as a way to throw out a lot of color for the event.

2. Social Distancing would need to be followed. Therefore, I think the parade route should begin at the Convo and wind its way through Athens and then make its way past the Burrows home before ending at Athens High School.

If anyone else has ideas please add them here and lets have Athens county make "Joe Burrows Day" a truly great event.

I was thinking more of starting from the elementary or high School and lead by the county sheriff with his siren and lights on. I think nobody should be allowed out of their vehicles. You show up at the parking lot and get in line. Have a set time at the parade steps off for example 8:30. If you get there late then you won't be in the parade. This has to be coordinated by law enforcement or it could get really chaotic. We want to show respect to him and his family and not upset them in any way. Somebody know the county sheriff or deputy and see if they're on board with this.

I just hope the Bengals dont screw this up. Choosing Burrows gives Ohio hope. Plus the state kinda owes it to him since we ran him off in Columbus. Burrows puts butts in seats right away which makes the owners happy and wins games once a few more pieces are put around him. I can see Burrows one day saying he is going to Disney World.
