Joe Burrow is considered one of NFL’s most influential people, says Peter King


Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is considered one of the NFL’s most vital people heading into 2022.

So says Peter King, who just dished his latest most influential list. At NBC Sports, he listed the 22 most influential people heading into next season and never only placed Joe Burrow twelfth, he was even comfortable signing off on a Joe Namath comparison:

“The explanation why I believe Burrow has shot to the highest of NFL Q rankings isn’t only his ability and his Gen-Z-appealing fashion sense, but additionally his attitude. He really has some Namath in him, the flexibility to play like the last word tough guy and at the identical time having an I-could-care-less-what-you-think-of-me attitude. He doesn’t get nervous or tight in big moments. And if his line could have blocked Aaron Donald down the stretch of Super Bowl LVI, he would have had the time to win it. Whether he’d have made the plays essential to win, that may have been on him. But he just didn’t have enough time.”

All of it checks, too. Burrow’s got the elite fashion sense while helping out a friend’s business along with his viral outfits. We’ve seen him laughing off late shenanigans from the likes of T.J. Watt while pointing on the scoreboard, too.

Never mind, in fact, the never-razzled on-field play that helped him reach the Super Bowl before ever having a completely normal offseason.

Viewed through these lenses, it’s pretty clear Burrow indeed has the upshot of being considered one of the faces of the NFL in the approaching years.
