The one thing Joe Burrow can’t do very well on the football field

Former LSU football quarterback Joe Burrow still has some learning to do.

Former LSU football quarterback Joe Burrow knows how to do a lot of things extremely well on the football field.

That’s why Burrow was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.

And so far, Burrow is proving that he was worthy of being the No. 1 pick. The former Tigers standout is the first NFL rookie with three consecutive 300-yard games.

Impressive for a kid that was just becoming a household name a year ago at this time.

But for all the good things that Burrow knows how to do on the field, there’s still one area where he has a lot to learn.


Joe Burrow doesn’t really know how to slide

Burrow is quickly learning that in the NFL that you better get down at the end of a run or a linebacker/defensive back is going to be waiting to tee off.

At LSU, Burrow didn’t slide much. He was athletic enough to take off and still manage to protect himself.

In the NFL, it’s not that easy. Players are bigger, faster, and stronger. And they love hitting quarterbacks.

After being on the receiving end of a few big hits in his first couple of starts, Burrow decided it was time to start sliding. But his slide looks….not good.

Check it out below.

That kind of looks like a seven year old learning to slide into second base. It’s definitely not pretty.

But this is Joe Burrow we’re talking about. I’m sure he’ll be working on those slides over the next few weeks and end up excelling at them (like he does at everything else).

For now, however, sliding appears to be the one thing on the football field that Burrow can’t do very well.
