The Joe Burrow vs. Justin Herbert debate has taken an incredible turn this week.
ESPN’s Mike Tannenbaum has weighed in on the debate. During an appearance on “Get Up” he told his colleagues the Bengals should regret drafting Burrow over Herbert:
“Yes, I said it before the draft and I’m still saying it. When you go head-to-head with Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert is bigger, stronger, faster and more athletic. If you would have put Herbert in that LSU offense – Burrow’s numbers were phenomenal, but Herbert’s would have been as good or even better.”
Burrow, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, is most certainly the Cincinnati Bengals’ franchise player. He was only able to appear in 10 games last season before the injury, completing 65.3% of his passes for 2,688 yards with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions.
