Burrow voted among Tier 1 QB’s, by NFL coordinators, head coaches and general managers

Rich Eisen noted how Joe Burrow has amazingly reached Tier 1 status, is considered among the top six NFL QB’s in only a year and a half of playing NFL football. Burrow was voted in by a vote of a third of the NFL head coaches, 12 coordinators, and numerous general managers.

Rich Eisen noted that he “believes it” adding that “everybody sees how he rips it, how he handles all of the beatings,,, it’s not an anointing, it is an evaluation of what he’s done, who he is, and what he can do.”

The tier ranking Eisen is referring to is from this article in the Athletic from a week ago.

quote:

6. Joe Burrow

Burrow has started 26 regular-season games and four in the playoffs. He has made it through one season healthy. He also quarterbacked the Cincinnati Bengals to the Super Bowl after Vegas set Cincy’s win total at 6.5, fifth-lowest in the league. Voters love how he plays. “Burrow is a young Tom Brady,” said a GM who placed Allen and Burrow in the top tier, but not Herbert. “I think Herbert has shown he can do it in doses. Burrow is a step ahead. I think his mind is a lot quicker than Herbert’s. Burrow wins with his brain, and he has had to, because he played behind probably the worst offensive line ever to go to the Super Bowl.” Burrow’s accuracy, calm under pressure and willingness to stand strong in the pocket even when he’s taking punishment has earned admirers. “This league is in good hands with the quarterbacks right now, and they’re in good places, with (coaches) who like to throw the ball,” a head coach said. “These veteran guys know that these colleges are throwing the ball more and they had better maximize their abilities, man, or they ain’t going to be doing it long, because the colleges are putting out better guys right now.” Any concerns on Burrow? “He got fooled on that fourth down in the Super Bowl,” a quarterbacks coach said. “He predetermines a lot of his quick game. They’ll spread it out and try to show him the picture. When you can change the look for him, I think the kid locks in and some of these guys. Once you get a book on them a little bit, you can make these guys struggle a little. I’m not saying this is a guy you are going to take off the map. The kid is a competitor. I’m just saying he clearly predetermines some things and until he grows out of that, he is a good 2 for me.” A head coach who placed Burrow in Tier 1 explained that Burrow’s poor offensive line was a contributing factor. “Joe reminds me of the West Coast Offense quarterbacks you always were looking for with the anticipation, instincts, ball accuracy, throwing guys open,” another head coach said. “You just don’t see that at a very young age coming out, and I’m talking particularly from the drop-back phase. I’m a Joe Burrow fan. I’d put a 1 on him.”


FYI 1-5:
Rodgers
Mahomes
Brady
Allen
Herbert

Personally, I’ve never understood the rodgers hype. Sure, he has a strong arm. Outside of that, nothing that screams best in the league to me. Below average runner, above average qb instincts, and piss poor team player.

Seriously? Just look at his stats, Rodgers is a first ballot hall of fame

He carries Green Bay.

Um, no. He had audibled Chase to a go route (second read) and needed one more second to win the game.

Shouldn’t have been an issue though, with Mixon picking up the 3rd down.

Putting the other young qbs abead of Burrow shows how stuck on measurables these guys are. It's amazing to me that people that close to the game still don't understand that as long as measurables are adequate, qbing is 90% between the ears.

I understand all but Herbert, what the hell with is the love for this guy. I get he can sling it but there are so many uncle Rico’s with strong arms. He’s got “tools” but hasn’t shown much else as far as team success and galvanizing a group to win.
