Former LSU football quarterback Joe Burrow is ready to hit the ground running with the Cincinnati Bengals.

LSU football’s Joe Burrow is a special player.

Everyone knows this by now.

Which is why his actions as a new member of the Cincinnati Bengals shouldn’t be surprising to fans/media analysts.

Burrow, according to his new teammate Jessie Bates, is so eager to get things going in Cincinnati that he’s trying to get 7-on-7s going on his own.

Bates made the revelation during a recent appearance on NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport’s podcast.

Burrow is like a lot of other elite quarterbacks — he eats, sleeps and breathes football. It reminds me of the way Tom Brady and Peyton Manning approach the game. It’s the same trait we’ve seen in Michael Jordan in The Last Dance documentary. It’s the same way Kobe Bryant approached basketball. And it’s similar to how Mike Trout approaches playing baseball.

In other words, Burrow has what it takes to go down as an all-time great. His ability to lead at such a young age is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before in football.

The Bengals have been a down-on-their-luck franchise for a long time. I have a feeling that Burrow is going to will Cincinnati to being a playoff caliber team in the very near future.

Burrow’s desire to win will be infectious in Cincinnati. He’s going to completely change the Bengals’ culture.

In fact, it sounds like he’s already started the culture changing process.

Imagine how much of an impact Burrow will have on Cincinnati once he’s actually allowed to start working at the complex.

It’s going to be a fun ride for Bengals fans.
