It's surprising the Bengals were able to find pants big enough for Joe Burrow. The No. 1 overall pick is packing a ton of confidence in those pants. The Heisman Trophy winner has big plans for his rookie season.
According to Burrow, he's hoping to add some more hardware to his trophy case to go with the National Championship he took home last season. He dropped an all-time quote about winning.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow: "If you're not striving for a championship, for perfection, what are you doing it for? I'm not out there to go .500 and squeak into the playoffs. I'm out here to win games and to win championships."

There have been plenty of rookie quarterbacks who haven't been able to live up to their hype and have made comments that came back to bite them. Time will tell how Burrow's career plays out, but it's really hard not to root for him.
The Tiger King is just a likable dude. As bad as things were in Cincinnati last season they do have their No. 1 receiver back, a solid running back and now a young exciting quarterback to lead them out of the cellar.
