Aaron Rodgers went onto the Pat McAfee show on Tuesday to praise Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. Burrow was dealing with a calf injury and the Bengals won the game 19-16 over the Los Angeles Rams. Cincinnati improved to 1-2 on the season.
Joe Burrow was not sharp by any means, but this was an injury that was lingering him throughout the preseason. He was questionable heading into this football game, and this was a must-win game for this football team, and it was a huge win for them because they avoided the 0-3 hole.
Aaron Rodgers got hurt in Week 1 with a torn Achilles for the New York Jets. He said this about his performance in a text message to Joe Burrow:
“That’s what great competitors do. They show up and play through the pain and don’t make it a big deal.”
Rodgers also added other messages about Burrow on the Pat McAfee show by saying:
“I don’t think people realize how much pain and limited mobility he was in.”
In the game, he threw for 26-of-49 passes for 259 yards passing zero touchdowns and one interception. Joe Burrow was a warrior out there. He did find his top target, Ja’Marr Chase for most of the game.
Aaron Rodgers Praising Joe Burrow Means That He Is Praising the Quarterback Position
Aaron Rodgers is happy with what Joe Burrow did on Monday night football against the Los Angeles Rams. We will see how much longer this injury is going to linger for him this season. Quarterback is the most important position in the NFL. The Bengals season would be in trouble without Burrow.
The New York Jets season is already in the wash with Aaron Rodgers sidelined, and Zach Wilson has been horrendous for them. Joe Burrow was going to be in the MVP conversation this season and could very well be this year. However, the Bengals could take a massive step back if it continues to bother him after making the AFC Championship games in back-to-back seasons.
Rodgers is one of the greatest to ever do it, and Burrow could be a very good NFL quarterback for the long haul and has shown it over the last couple of seasons. The Cincinnati Bengals need to hope Joe Burrow can get healthier at some point. Their next game will be against the Tennessee Titans on the road, who is also 1-2 on the year.
