Social media reacts to CBS Sports' broadcast comparing Joe Burrow to Tom Brady
Late in the third quarter against Auburn, CBS Sports broadcaster Gary Danielson said that colleague Rick Neuheisel compared Joe Burrow to Tom Brady.
Following a Burrow scramble that gave LSU a first down, Danielson explained the comparison of the LSU quarterback to the legendary Patriots quarterback.
Burrow is 31-of-39 for 314 yards and one passing touchdown, and he’s certainly having a huge year. Burrow does have a little Brady in him, and he is a better athlete than Brady was/is. However, championships, man.
Burrow has a chance to win a championship this year, too.
Social media reacted to the comparison:
Oh, and we've reached the point of the broadcast with Joe Burrow / Tom Brady comparisons.

Comparing Joe Burrow to Tom Brady is so ridiculous, but the more I watch the more I can’t help but agree. #LSUvsAUB
