NFL analyst Scott Pioli, who served as GM for the Cheifs and the Falcons was on “Good Morning Football” this week and talked about the "physical toll" Joe Burrow with the Bengals is concerning to him. Per 247 Sports:

"His mental and emotional endurance is really strong and it’s really high. He has a unique ability to stay confident," Pioli said this week. He’s got this wonderful balance of being extremely confident without being a jerk. I think the losses will affect him, but to me his emotional and mental endurance are in a good place. He will learn from these losses. I hate saying that people learn from losses but he will somehow get something from those losses.

"The bigger question is what will be the physical toll on his body during these losses? To me, that’s the greater concern. He will be fine emotionally. They just need to find ways to protect him. That offensive line isn’t playing very well. They don’t have a strong running game to help him. I worry more about Joe Burrow’s physical health than his mental health."

Is Joe gonna have to identify the worst O-lineman, then shank him? 'Cause that's how a brother gets shanked, yo.

Hope he doesnt turn into Andrew Luck 2.0. They HAVE to get him help up front.

The duds on the o-line will be identified and replaced - All part of a rebuild around JB.

You better hope so, because it's BS how he has to run for his life all game.

David Carr got his arse kicked every game his rookie year and it definitely took a toll on him.
