Joe Burrow after record-setting day: 'It wasn't my sharpest game'
Joe Burrow’s numbers on Saturday in a 63-28 blowout of Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl were staggering — 493 passing yards, 7 passing touchdowns and 1 score as a rusher.
It was a historic day, and one that won’t soon be forgotten in LSU lore. However, Burrow — the 2019 Heisman winner — wasn’t satisfied.
In his postgame press conference, he said he felt like he didn’t have his best performance:
“To be honest, it wasn’t my sharpest game.”

“To be honest, it wasn’t my sharpest game,” he said. “This guy (Justin Jefferson) was bailing me out on throws that I missed. Guys like Terrace (Marshall Jr.) and Ja’Marr (Chase) were bailing me out on some missed reads and being late with the football. I’m excited to get back to practice and tune some of those things up. That’s the kind of team we have. If someone doesn’t have their best game, the other guys step up.”
If Burrow is even better in the national title game, there might not be a team in the country that can stop the Tigers.
