During a recent interview with Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf on the QB1 Show, Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner talked about the comparison between him and Joe Burrow.
quote:

“I actually had seen that a couple times out there, people making that comparison. And I kind of like it, based on what I’ve seen,” Warner told Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf during this week’s QB1 show.

“If you go back and look at what they did at LSU, like 80% of the time, they went five out. Five-man protection, get everybody out, put it in the quarterback’s hands, deal the football. The accuracy part of it, the ability to make the throw down the field. But where he thrived was quick decisions, accuracy and decision-making. And that, to me, is exactly how I played the game.

“If you gave me one thing on the field and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to play the whole game this way,’ I’m saying, ‘We’re going five out, and we’re going to block five and we’re going to put the pressure on the defense and you leave it up to me to make those decisions and get the ball to my playmakers,’ which is very much what LSU did in that great season that he had last year. So I like the comparisons.”

So, let's see. Believe Kurt Warner's or Colin Cowherd's take on Joe Burrow. Hmmmm. Really tough choice, man.

Kurt Warner was a class act. I didn't appreciate him enough during his Rams years.

Definitely some might have said something about let him play a Down first or something rude but he embraced it says a lot about Kurt but stuff we already knew.

I often forget how good Warner played for a few years.

Concussions slowed him down. Revived his career in Az though.
