Burrow was asked on NFL Network about whether he’s similar to Brady, the Patriots’ six-time Super Bowl winning quarterback. Burrow said he doesn’t want that kind of a burden on his shoulders.

“Please don’t compare me to the best player of all time. Let me do my own thing. Don’t do that to me, please,” Burrow said.

Joe Burrow had great response to Alabama when offered third-string job

  Joe Burrow had great response to Alabama when offered third-string job Joe Burrow made every college coach that passed on him regret their decision when he won a Heisman Trophy and a national title last season.During an appearance on Bleacher Report’s “The Lefkoe Show” on Monday, Burrow revealed that Alabama offered him a roster spot when he was transferring from Ohio State back in 2018. However, the Tide wanted Burrow as a third-string quarterback. Burrow says he turned Alabama down in very confident fashion.

Told that it’s a great compliment to be compared to Brady, Burrow said, “It is. But it’s Tom Brady.”

Draft prospects are frequently compared to current NFL players, and that makes sense when it’s an attempt to explain how a certain player might be used when he gets to the league. But comparing anyone to Brady doesn’t make a lot of sense because it’s just not realistic to think anyone is going to have a career like Brady’s. Some players are simply unique in NFL history, and those players defy comparison.

There are only a few spots where Rivers would be in good position to be successful, and he picked the best one. It’s more than just the offensive line that will protect him, giving him the sense of security in the pocket that he hasn’t had in years.
