Despite the Bengals 0-2 Start, Burrow is their Guy
by: Steve Risser
The Bengals lost to the Browns last night falling to 0-2 but this is not because of the play of Joe Burrow who has been their leader and best player through out the first 2 weeks of the season. Burrow played well in his first two games last week he drove the Bengals all the way down the field at the end of the game but Randy Bullock missed a game tying field goal and last night he threw for over 300 yard and 3 TD's. The Bengals are a team with a ton of issues their defense is terrible especially against the run they also have one of the worst offensive lines in football which is the biggest reasons why they can't get their running game going with Joe Mixon. The biggest problem is they don't have a good head coach in Zack Taylor who is 2-16 as coach of the Bengals, a prime example of him not being good was last week when he had no timeouts left with 6:30 minutes left in the game. The Bengals will probably win 4 or 5 games this year because of poor coaching, an awful defense and a terrible O-line but don't have that make you think Burrow is not a franchise QB he's got all the tools to be one has the size, arm strength, accuracy and leadership and it's the Bengals job to put the pieces around him to make this work.
