    2020 Cincinnati Bengals Thread Part 2: The Joe Burrow Era is Almost Here!

    The other two Bengals threads are near the 1,000 post threshold so I figured Iíd start this one for the draft and after.

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals Thread Part 2: The Joe Burrow Era is Almost Here!

    So in the previous thread I predicted the Bengals would make the mistake of not drafting (or drafting and trading) Joe Burrow. Based on the moves this off season and the pre- draft chatter, I'm withdrawing that prediction. The Bengals will draft and keep Burrow, and that is definitely the right move for them.

    Stoked for the Burrow era. The excitement about his arrival gives me something to distract me in these times as well.

    Me too. I can’t wait. If you have a great franchise QB, your floor is still pretty high. And everything doesn’t have to be perfect to make the playoffs. Both of those facts make Mike Brown really really happy. And fans like me.

    I'm treating Thursday night like a Super Bowl party. Food, my kids will watch, Zoom with some family/friends for a bit.

    I truly believe the franchise wins it's first Super Bowl the instant they take him. Burrow is that special - he'll get them there.

    I think at the very least they break the playoff streak. I do agree with Manning that heíll struggle his rookie season but after 2-3 years it should peak. Anything else is gravy.

    Given Iíve been stanning for Burrow since November and originally was flying to Vegas to see it in person, you all know how giddy I am.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    I was talking to a friend yesterday about the luck of the Reds and the Bengals. The Reds finally have a good squad then shutdown. The Bengals have the first pick and the Vegas draft is cancelled. And, we don’t have to bring up either team’s history. I remember you and SeaRay mentioning that you’re going to the draft, but there was a little risk involved. Could the Bengals possibly mess up the #1 pick and the draft? Incredibly, something else has.

    Seriously, I should have figured - "yeah, plague" as the alternative to the Bengals doing the right thing and staying steadfast on taking Burrow...

    In case people even think there is the slightest chance of Burrow not being a Bengal, he has been informed that he is there pick.

    Source: Bengals have informed Joe Burrow he’s their pick

    Heisman-winning quarterback and national champion Joe Burrow will be the No. 1 overall pick by the Bengals on Thursday night, a source told FOX19 Now.

    That same source close to the situation said the Bengals informed Burrow of their intent to make him their top pick during extended conversations in recent weeks.

    “We talked to a lot of guys, but certainly formed a really good relationship with Joe, and have been really impressed with everything we’ve seen from him," said Bengals head coach Zac Taylor on ESPN Wednesday morning.

    Is it too soon to rename St. Rt. 32 as "The Joe Burrow Highway"?
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I am gonna go with...no. Let's do that.

    Will raise a glass and celebrate with you all virtually tomorrow night - we deserve some happiness as a fanbase wherever we can find it. Appreciate the chance to celebrate with my fellow bengals fan friends some good news.
