Carson Palmer says Joe Burrow is better than Patrick Mahomes

Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer just added a little more juice to the rivalry between the Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

Appearing on “The QB Room” with Jordan Palmer, Carson said Burrow is the best quarterback in the league and that one key thing separates the two players in his mind.

“I think Joe is the best quarterback in the league,” Palmer said. “I know Patrick is phenomenal, but I just think Joe’s more consistent. He’s more consistent. He’s more accountable to run the system and the play that’s called and not feel like, “Well, he didn’t win last time and get open for me, so I’m gonna do it with my feet,” and then before you know it, you’re sacked for a four-yard loss because you tried to make two or three guys miss. Joe is just… talk about not having a weakness. Mentally strong, physically tough, accurate, can throw it far enough, fast enough, gets the ball out quick, and then he can actually do a lot with his legs.”

Notably, Jordan has been a pivotal point in Burrow’s training since the pre-draft process before the Bengals made him the No. 1 overall pick.

While this latest entry in the discourse between two of the league’s top passers won’t sway many, it’s pretty telling that it is often Burrow and Mahomes alone in that conversation for the top two spots these days.
