Joe Burrow Is So Fucking Awesome (And Ryan Tannehill...Well....)

 

What can you say, this guy is fucking awesome, man. Was sacked 9 times, didn't throw a TD, and is still the belle of the ball. Joey Burrow is taking the Bengals to their first conference championship game in 3 decades, and I think I speak for everyone who didn't have any sort of rooting interest in the game that it's pretty sweet. It's the Bengals. In my lifetime, 33 years old, minus a couple of Carson Palmer years, they have been with the WFT as the laughing stock of the NFL. Fans show up to week 1 games with bags on their heads. Went 2-14 two seasons ago. And now, boom, AFC championship game. Pretty god damn cool.

And on the other hand….sigh, poor Ryan Tannehill. One of the worst playoff performances a QB can have. And it's not like he's an unlikable guy or anything, but you can't give a classic poo-poo Tannehill performance after securing a first round playoff bye, you just can't. It also goes to show (for the 1,000th time, and we still haven't learned) just how important a dominate QB truly is. The Titans built this sick team but it begins and ends with QB play, and RT didn't have it today. 

And finally the thing everyone is talking about, the Titans decimated Burrow today. 9 sacks. He should simply sleep in an ice bath. Get a solid 9 hours and some frost bite, i don't see any other option. Those 9 sacks should have won the Titans the game, but instead they'll just be a trivia question. 

 

PS: In middle school the first jersey I ever bought was an orange Corey Dillon jersey. I loved the Bengals colors, helmet, everything. Middle school me is very happy for them.

 

PS: It very well could be the glasses.
