Joe Burrow Heisman speech
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It started out innocently enough…

Oh, who are we kidding? The Cincinnati Bengals knew what they were getting into when they sent the following tweet.

A quick glance at the responses makes it clear that Bengals fans are pining for one guy, and one guy only.

Joe Burrow.

The Burrow memes are running strong on the replies thread. But the love affair between Bengals fans and Burrow is even more intense than all that, as you’re about to see.

Hopefully it doesn’t come to all that.

Widely seen as the top quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft, most mock drafts have Burrow going to Cincinnati with the first overall pick. After the incredible record-breaking and Heisman-winning season he had at LSU, it’s hardly surprising.
