NBC Sports analyst and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Collinsworth spoke to Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski on Coach K’s show on Sirius XM this week and talked about why he thinks Joe Burrow and the Bengals are having such early success. Per SDS:
quote:

“I’ve never seen anything quite like what this young group of players is,” Collinsworth said. “Ja’Marr, Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon and I don’t know if you had one of those baby teams. That just comes in every single day wide-eyed, but so confident that they just can’t understand why they wouldn’t win, and that’s what this team is. ‘Like why would we not win? We won the national championship with this core group, we beat the Alabamas, we beat everybody along the way.'”

Collinsworth then recalled a story about legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, and his transition to the senior tour.

“I’ve been beating these guys my whole life, why wouldn’t I keep beating them now,” he recalled Nicklaus saying. “I think that’s the way Joe Burrow looks at this thing. I really do.”

Collinsworth may be right but he’s also a Cinci homer. Nothing wrong w that, but he’s just pumped that shit-Cinci finally has a chance at being decent. good to have him on our side regardless. hope BDJ brings him a super bowl!

The Patriots were great when they were known as LSU-North. Looks like similar things are happening in Cincinnati as more purple and gold is added to their roster. Good to see it.

The patriots were great when they had Brady. Not some “LSU north”

Joe Burrow is already better than Ken Anderson on his best day. Period.

@how333, it was a joke. Most people under the age of 45 don't even know who Ken Anderson is and Burrow is on pace to be the next Joe Montana.

Collinsworth was a WR Larry. Just FYI.

Larry gets a lot of shite but he said WR. The bar has been set so low for Larry, you are making me defend him for when he gets it right.

He absolutely did not say WR at first. It said quarterback.
