Joe Burrow said he wants to emulate Tom Brady, the historic quarterback who has seven Super Bowl rings and this week announced his retirement.
Super Bowl LVI between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams will be played on February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
“I want to try to emulate a guy like that, he’s had a great career and I hope to get there one day,” he told reporters.
“Everyone remembers every little detail about what happened in Brady’s career. Only work and being better every day can lead you to have something like this”, he reiterated.
“There’s nothing like that, I feel like I’m expecting a normal game. Yeah, it’s the Super Bowl and all I can say is we’re going to try to cut out as many distractions as we can, but it just feels like a normal game.”
Cincinnati has played two NFL championship games in history, losing both to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XVI and XXIII.
Joe Burrow stressed that the path to come out victorious this time is the same one they followed in the regular season and that brought them to this game.
“We improved as the season progressed, we have corrected mistakes that were made throughout the year; I’m good at remembering that kind of stuff, so when you get to the end you have all that data and all you’re hoping to do is keep getting better and better,” he said.
The quarterback acknowledged that being sacked an NFL-high 51 times this season and nine in the divisional round gave him another vision to escape those predicaments.
“I’ve started to feel like I can get out of some of those tackles when defensive players have me wrapped up in the pocket, I think now I’m able to get out of those situations and have the ability to show myself another route,” he said.
