LSU Football: Joe Burrow’s dad is good at Twitter

Former LSU football quarterback Joe Burrow’s dad showed this week that he’s excellent at social media.

Specifically, Twitter.

Burrow’s dad, Jimmy, took to Twitter this week to post a photo of Joe as a kid wearing a Kansas City Chiefs helmet.

Burrow will lead the Cincinnati Bengals against the Chiefs on Sunday in the AFC Championship game.

The young Burrow looks to be around three years old in this photo. That would’ve been during the early years of the Tony Gonzalez era in Kansas City. 

Gonzalez in his day was the best tight end in the NFL, so it’s easy to see why Burrow was fond of the Chiefs.

I love two things about this tweet.

Obviously just the good nature of it. Burrow’s dad is a longtime football coach. Joe grew up around the game. He’s been a football junkie since he was old enough to walk. This photo shows exactly that, which isn’t a surprise at all — considering how obsessed Burrow is with the game of football.

The second thing I love about this tweet is the “Geaux Bengals” that Burrow’s dad tossed in at the end.

LSU clearly means a lot to the entire Burrow family, even though Joe only spent two years of his life in Baton Rouge. It seems like Joe is always making small references to LSU any chance he gets. The same is true of his dad, too.

Next. Joe Burrow card sells for insane price. dark

Burrow is going to have his work cut out for him on Sunday. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of the best players in the NFL. And he’s tough to beat in the playoffs.

But Burrow is well on his way to becoming one of the best players in the NFL as well. Maybe Sunday against the Chiefs will be the game where Burrow truly “arrives” in the NFL.
