Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow seems to see it all.
In that post, Pro Football Focus screen-grabbed cornerback Richard Sherman saying Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was “by far” his favorite rookie passer from the 2020 draft class.
This is far from the first time the Burrow vs. Herbert debate has popped up in recent months. Both were neck-and-neck for awards and otherwise until Burrow went down with his season-ending injury.
It’s all about who gets asked, really. One expert, for example, still says Burrow will be the better quarterback over the long-term. Another re-draft had the Bengals passing on Burrow outright. Heck, one graphic from NFL Network even ranked Burrow as the worst quarterback in the AFC North.
The reality is probably somewhere closer to the middle. Burrow certainly has plenty of bulletin-board material to peruse while he rehabs — and the 33-year-old Sherman is a free agent who Burrow might get a shot at next year depending on where the cornerback ends up.
