The Cincinnati Bengals have top-of-the-line
younger quarterbacks within the NFL. Burrow has gone toe-to-toe with the perfect and knocked them off at house and on the highway. Many assume Burrow is the second finest quarterback within the NFL.
Not LeSean McCoy, although. The previous NFL working again (and former Buffalo Payments participant) was on FS1 previewing the Bengals vs. Payments matchup Sunday night time, and naturally, the dialog shifted to the quarterbacks.
McCoy went on to say he would take Josh Allen, and “It’s not shut.”
“Imma go together with Josh Allen, and I do love Joe Burrow. Phenomenal participant. Lights out. Nice participant he’s, however I’m gonna take the perfect participant. I believe Josh Allen’s the higher quarterback. If I had to attract up a quarterback and what it seems to be like, what he might do, his attributes? It’s not even shut.”
McCoy continued on with the trusty weapons narrative.
“Proper, I performed with Josh Allen, and I’ve seen simply Josh Allen earlier than he had Stefon Diggs. He was a very good quarterback, actually good, however he didn’t have plenty of weapons. I by no means seen Joe burrow with out the weapons over there.”
Burrow was once more penalized for his crew surrounding him with excellent weapons, however final season, when the Bengals had been lacking Ja’Marr Chase for 4 video games, Burrow led the crew to a 4-0 report and truly ranked increased than Allen in effectivity over that stretch.
McCoy wasn’t fully discrediting Burrow, however the recreation that made the Payments media darlings in opposition to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs within the 2021 Divisional spherical.
“On the subject of the massive video games, And sure, Joe did beat him final yr at house. However I look again to the sport when he performed Patrick Mahomes in Kansas Metropolis. Oh man, that’s who he’s.”
Allen is immensely proficient, however saying Burrow isn’t shut appears fairly off-base.
