Tyler Boyd: Joe Burrow will lead us to the promised land

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has been on the field at this week’s organized team activities and working with the team while wearing a brace on his surgically-repaired left knee.

His presence is a good sign about his recovery from last season’s torn ACL and one of his top targets feels like the first overall pick of the 2019 draft is picking up right where he left off. Wide receiver Tyler Boyd said he still sees a player who will lead the team to great heights in the future.

“Nothing average about Joe. He’s going to lead us to the promised land,” Boyd said, via Geoff Hobson of the team’s website. “Joe looks great. He looks like he’s ready to play a game right now. I’m not worried about Joe. He makes magic when his number’s called. It’s like, ‘How do you stop these guys?’ I’m pretty sure there are guys already looking across the league and figuring out what guys got and I know we’re one of the teams that guys are going to worry about.”

With A.J. Green in Arizona, Boyd has become the elder statesman of a receiving corps that also features 2020 second-rounder Tee Higgins and 2021 first-rounder Ja'Marr Chase. That group would be part of the reason why other teams would worry about the Bengals, but Boyd acknowledges they “have to show people” they can do it before everyone will buy in.

10 responses to “Tyler Boyd: Joe Burrow will lead us to the promised land

  1. I jokingly said that for the Bengals to break the curse of Bo Jackson, they needed to draft Tua Tagovailoa since he suffered the same injury as Jackson. Maybe Burrow’s knee injury was sufficient for the football gods.

    The offseason is the time for optimism, so it’s all in that vein. The Bengals have a lot to prove and they have to do it in a tough division.

    They already have to do it with the disadvantage that is Lou Anarumo.

  2. Tyler Boyd is the kind of player that every team should want. When he called out Carlos Dunlap, I became a fan of his forever.

  3. Burrow can’t take the Bungles anywhere lying on his back. That team needs an OL desperately or it ain’t going nowhere.

  4. With Chase and Higgins drawing attention on the outside TB is going to EAT UP the middle of the field. Guy makes the play nearly every time he’s given the chance.

  5. That WR room is looking pretty intimidating. Don’t forget about Auden Tate either.

  6. Moses wandered for 40 years before he led his people to the promised land.
    This doesn’t bode well for the Bengals.

  7. Burrow is going to be a stud for a long time, I see him becoming elite with a good chance at the HOF.

    But there’s no “promised land” in the NFL. There’s only the “come and take it” land.

  8. The Bengals have quietly fixed their 2020 problems. Despite their record, they were in every game but one last year. They probably won’t win the conference but they will make some noise.
