I was pleasantly surprised to see Gilbert turn in the best day I've ever seen from him. I really thought that Texas had ruined him by throwing him into the Championship game against Alabama before he was ready. When he went to the pros, his performances only reinforced that opinion. Sunday was a remarkable turnaround for him. I hope that he only gets better.I saw highlights and he didn't seem that bad, but the Cowboys seem to find a way to lose.
I'm early in my days as a NFL viewer and I've been enjoying seeing the differences of the 3 QB's at the top of the draft come into the game.
Joe Burrow, comes across as a very sensible, well considered young man and that seems apparent when he's on the field. In contrast Tua is a rock star, has the confidence and persona of one, I can see the media switching between either loving or hating him according the day. Justin Herbert, seems to be quietly going about being a superb QB, but the Chargers can't quite cross the line.
It is amazing to me to see the youngsters come into the league and make their mark right away, Baker Mayfield, Joe Burrow, Tua have all made amazing progress. Baker has particularly rebranded the Browns and is making them the darling of the league with his television commercials.
Its been a weird and challenging NFL season, and I don't know when if ever we will get back to stadiums full of people. I sure hope its soon. I am envisioning a Super Bowl played before 20,000 people. Sad.
