Why I think Joe Burrow and the Bengals will Win the Super Bowl
I have said it before and I will say it again, Joe Burrow is clutch. He is not phased by the pressure of any big game. I talk more about that here in my quick take as seen in the Times Union:
The easy way out is to take the Los Angeles Rams to win the Super Bowl. Their defense is so good, you wonder how the Bengals offensive line will hold up. Also can they keep superstar Quarterback Joe Burrow upright? If Cincinnati can do a reasonably good job on Sunday, I don’t think Burrow will disappoint. He’s not bothered by the big moment, and he will make big plays with both his arm and legs. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is overdue and he’s finally delivered with a good team around him. I can’t pick against the Bengals. One thing is for sure, it will be close.
Below is a conversation between Michael Johnson Jr. and I where we gave a little early preview of Super Bowl 56 in LA this morning. While I hope the game will be close, I'm obviously still picking the Bengals.
The Cincinnati Bengals have most certainly gained a bunch of fans with their cinderella/underdog season. If the Bengals win their first ever Super Bowl on Sunday, the city will be in an absolute frenzy. Even Cincinnati public schools have given their students the Monday after the Super Bowl off from school.
I have to pick the Bengals to win it all. They continue to defy the odds and have enough talent and pieces to take down the Rams. My son Brady is a huge Bengals fan, and will be wearing his new Bengals hoodie for the game that I just got him. I'm sure it will be an awesome game and I'm hoping Joe Burrow and these Bengals come out on top.
