If you’re tired of hearing Joe Burrow compared to Tom Brady, here’s a new one:
Jarrett Bailey of BearsWire recently released his non-football comparisons for all 32 starting quarterbacks in the league. And here’s what he had to say about the Cincinnati Bengals’ signal caller:
Joe Burrow: Ryan Gosling
Handsome. Multi-talented. Women want him. Men want to be him.
And if you think that was unexpected, wait until you see some of the other ones that Bailey came up with:
Lamar Jackson [Baltimore Ravens]: Samuel L. Jackson
The versatile talent, the personality- heck, even the last name — Lamar is the on-field equivalent to the legendary actor.
Russell Wilson [Denver Broncos]: Drake
Applauded for his talent when he was young, now he’s just incredibly cringey, annoying, and you can understand why people root against him.
Tua Tagovailoa [Miami Dolphins]: Celery
Not great by itself, but throw some peanut butter on it (Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle) and all of a sudden, everyone thinks celery is good.
