Now, he’s been tasked to lead them to glory, and he’s aware of the amount of time and effort that will require.

“If you waste a day, there’s somebody out there who didn’t waste a day and you lost a day. So, I’m a competitor. I want to win every single day…I’m going to attack every day like it’s Sunday…Like it’s the Super Bowl,” Burrow said in a Monday video tweeted by Jeremy Rauch.

I love this approach from Burrow, and it’s the right one to have. Not only is it the right one to have, but it’s the only one to have.

You simply can’t be a starting quarterback in the NFL and focus on things other than football. As they say, quarterbacks have to have coaches’ hours.

When everyone else goes home at the end of practice, quarterbacks need to head to the film room for hours of studying.

That’s the kind of commitment you need out of the face of your franchise. It sounds like Burrow knows that, and he sounds ready to fulfill his duties.

There will be some growing pains for the Bengals, but you have to love the maturity Burrow has when it comes to taking over an NFL franchise.
