Would you trade Burrow for Watson

Welp, feels good to have something to be optimistic about, that's for sure.



Burrow's ceiling being much higher than proven MPV-caliber play would be nice, that's for sure.  

Yes for Mahomes but I wouldn't for Allen. 

But honestly push come to shove for me Burrow may be my last hope for this Franchise. I hope the Bengals realize what they have and don't blow it.

Anyone that wouldn’t trade Burrow for Mahomes is out of their mind. Not really even worth talking about though as KC wouldn’t trade him for anything or anyone. And rightly so.

No, I would not trade Burrow for Allen.

People point to his low passing yardage but they don’t have him throw as much, because he is such a dynamic athlete (and they have good running backs). He had something like the 24th most attempts in the league. He is a very unique QB.

2600 yards with 26-9 the year after MVP and coming up way short in the winning department in todays passing league = crashing to me.

Ceiling wise, I think so for sure. I also think the Bengals are better built for long term success than the Texans. So, yeah, to me Burrow has a higher ceiling looking at the big picture.

He had 3100 yards last year, he just had more passing TDs (also had more passing attempts). He isn’t the type of QB to throw for 4500 yards and he likely never will be. If you want to set your definitional be that sensitive, then okay.

In a passing league, with a loaded team he couldn't put up numbers and fell short of expectations by a mile.

No one is winning the Superbowl with Lamar Jackson's formula for QB. But, people would have traded Burrow for him in the blink of an eye after he took the league by storm. Today, those people would look foolish, IMO.

My point is that 1: Burrow's a rookie and looked awesome for a lot of his play. 2: I think it takes several years for anyone to cement themselves as "great", elite, etc. DW had an excellent season, but I'm not interested in a shiny new thing when the Bengals already have a shiny new thing of their own who also has huge potential.

It took Allen until his 3rd season to put up a better rating than Burrow did as a rookie. I see no reason to think Joe’s ceiling isn’t higher.

Watson isn't likely to be a texan much longer. If he goes to a franchise that can get more than 4 wins out of an elite QB it could get interesting.

That’s a tough call. Allen really turned the corner this year, and I think he can get better. He has a really strong arm and can make all the throws and has a nice deep throw.

I think Joe us going to grow more too, doesn’t have the arm strength, but his IQ is really high. I don’t know if Allen has the obvious confidence as Joe has though.

Honestly, I think tge Bengals are better set up for future success with Joe because he has 4 years of rookie contract left. Allen is eligible for a contract extension right now which would be costly this year.

I get that Allen is a tough call and I'd have to think hard about it. Dude is huge, athletic, has a cannon for an arm, and just led his team to a championship games. Although he just finished his 3rd year in the league, dude is only 6 months younger than JB.

Yup, I totally agree with you. He’s got a bright future with growth. I think he’s going to get a huge payday, which is the reason I sided with Joe. 2nd contracts and high end QBs really effect personnel decisions.

Josh Allen has been a full-time starter for 2 years and he made the playoffs twice, has 2 playoff wins and made it to the AFC Championship game against the world champs.  I realize they are different guys and I wouldn't immediately do a straight up swap (and football is a team sport), but Josh Allen should have more confidence that Burrow at this psychological moment.

I know you don't mean Burrow is confident in a sort of unrealistic and cocky way, but hell...I'm not even sure. We are all pretty convinced Burrow is or will be better than every QB in the league other than Mahommes right now, and his first 3 years as a starting QB are just absurd. I have confidence in Burrow, but I also realize that I'm a fan of a team that hasn't had a winning season in 5 years and I'm pretty sure my 2-win QB is better than everyone except a guy who is record book-smashingly amazing so early in his career. I guess we've got that swagger now.
