Zimmer doesn’t make comparisons often and he isn’t afraid to criticize players, even if it’s his own quarterback. But the veteran coach has been around the NFL for decades, including a stint as the Bengals’ defensive coordinator (2008-13).

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, the No. 1 pick in the 2003 NFL Draft also played well for the Arizona Cardinals, adding another 16,782 yards and 105 touchdowns.

The things that impress Zimmer most are Burrow’s toughness and his ability to scramble, the latter skill being what could make him even better than Palmer.

“He’s a better scrambler, but I’ve been so impressed with the toughness. He will take a shot, scramble and dive for the first down. Run a quarterback draw. All the things he does. I think y’all hit big on that one.”

Ultimately, the future of this team all rests on the front office to help Burrow achieve his potential.
