That’s a weird shoulder injury. He hardly got touched. Think he aggravated a pre existing injury?

Same thought. Burrow sucks! Or maybe we need to withhold judgement
Mac would absolutely kill for a "bad" Burrow year, it's not only WAY WAY WAY better than Mac's year:
57093

It's also significantly better than Mac's year last year:
57094

Someone was comparing Burrow to Mac weeks ago and I finally realized this has nothing to do with the reality of the world I’m living in.
Wait until they see Mac's closest passing production comp through 2 years among "recent" 1st round QBs.... I won't spoil it, but it ain't Joe Burrow.

Mixon was pretty good last year, but he’s gotta be the most overhyped back in the last 5 years of the league. Dude just isn’t good right now.

Coupang Play, the Amazon Prime of Korea, is broadcasting the Browns Bengals game with Korean play-by-play. It's pretty impressive and quite fun to watch!

The Bengals would be just fine at 6-2 if they could have taken care of their awful intradivision foes so far.

A "bad" Burrow year was his rookie year:
65.3%, 2,688 yds, 6.7 y/a, 13 td, 5 int, 89.8 rating

Mac last year (also his rookie year):
67.6%, 3,801 yds, 7.3 y/a, 22 td, 13 int, 92.5 rating

OBVIOUSLY Burrow is better than Mac is now. Not even close.

Also obvious: Burrow has put up a Mac-like game tonight: 15-21, 103 yds, 4.9 y/a, 0 td, 1 int, 4 sacks, 0 points scored

This against a defense that the Pats shredded for 38 points and 399 total yards with a rookie QB at the helm.

Clearly Burrow has regressed between weeks and this is really just as good he is now

It has to be Tua, right?
They were basically the same QB in most advanced metrics last season.

If you went into the Jones thread and replaced his name with Tua, it’s virtually the exact discussion that was taking place last year on any Dolphins board.

Don't we have enough threads in which to trash Mac Jones?

wouldn’t mind having Brisket on the Patriots next year, but some bozos are probably going to give him $20MM/yr

Ooh Tua is a good one too, it was actually Mitchell Trubisky (though Mitch was arguably a bit better depending on whether you prioritize completion% or TDs).

Does Brissett always trail the RB after a handoff? Just waiting for him to take a pitch out wide and score.
