Aaron Rodgers and Joe Burrow are two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. While the two have only talked briefly, it’s clear that the Green Bay Packers quarterback has a deep admiration for what the Cincinnati Bengals star has been able to accomplish. Rodgers was asked about Joe Burrow on Tuesday’s edition of The Pat McAfee Show, and he had a lot to say.
Aaron Rodgers On Joe Burrow And What He Has Seen So Far
Rodgers was asked about his thoughts on Burrow during his weekly spot on The Pat McAfee Show and gushed not only about his ability as a quarterback, but his demeanor as well:
“I like watching him play,” Rodgers said of Burrow via Pat McAfee on Twitter. “I like watching him compete. I think, obviously, he’s a real good player — had a great season…I think his demeanor is great. He’s real even keel. All the great ones have the fire of competition, but real even keel, not riding a wave of emotion. I really enjoy watching Joe play.”
The only time Rodgers has had a chance to speak with Burrow was after the two faced off last season. The Packers edged out a thrilling 25-22 win in overtime over the eventual AFC Champions back in Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season. While this was the only time he’s had a chance to meet Burrow, Rodgers distinctly recalled telling Burrow that he was “way too good not to slide more often.” Burrow got hit quite a few times in that game by the Green Bay Packers defense. Many fans had an interesting reaction to Rodgers comments:
