Burrow is not only proving himself on the field but has gained trust within the Bengals organization as a strong leader.
Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan on Joe Burrow speaking to the team after Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest: "He has the pulse of our team. He's still one of the unquestioned leaders of our team… He understands the weight of his words."

Throughout this season, Burrow has showcased his leadership in a multitude of ways.
On Monday night, in face of adversity, Burrow was seen heading to the Buffalo Bills locker room with his co-captains, checking in on their status after Damar Hamlin left the field in an ambulance.
At just 26 years old, Burrow looks like he has the chops to lead the Bengals for years on end, and his on-field play has complemented his off-field leadership as well.
In 41 career NFL games, Burrow has thrown for 11,559 yards, 81 touchdowns, and 31 interceptions.
He’s also averaged a completion percentage of 68.5 and a passer rating of 101.
With players like Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Tom Brady getting older, this new age of quarterbacks should provide a refreshing change to the league’s top players, and Burrow surely finds himself atop this list of young stars.
Will Burrow be able to lead the Bengals to another deep playoff run this season?
By reaching the Super Bowl in just his second NFL season, Burrow has built up quite a reputation around the league as an elite player.
For Burrow’s sake, we are sure hoping that he can continue to provide an electrifying offense.
