4. Getting back to Joe Burrow; he had already gotten a bachelors degree, a master's degree, won the Heisman, is the consensus NFL number one pick. His future is set....  To listen to some on this board (and in the media, social and professional) there was no reason for a player like him to play in the playoff game or national championship game, and he was a sucker to do so: "he is just one injury away from not being able to collect millions of dollars; look out for number one".  But as the consummate TEAM player, he played anyway, and led his team to the championship.

 

I watched in fear of him getting injured in any of the last 3 games, but it never occurred to me that he might sit out. These players play to win national championships so I don't think it was the wrong move to keep playing once his future was set. One could argue that abandoning his team at that point would be a negative mark on his scouting report, but if it was the Outback Bowl, no way he should've played in that.
