"Just collecting a paycheck" will fit this organization well, I agree

If you haven't noticed it's not really a rah-rah league.  He is smart enough to know that.  Wherever Burrow goes he is going to have to lead grown-ass men who abuse their bodies for a paycheck.  Most have been seriously injured at some point.  Most have been treated poorly by their franchise at some point.  It's a business.  If Burrow wants to get a locker room behind him he has to grind and show the vets he gets it.  Then some of that enthusiasm can come forth.  Until then, time to be a pro.

So you think they should make him compete for the job in training camp, or what's the plan there?

I wouldn't call it competing for the job.  I think you see how it goes.  See how the team reacts.  See how fast he picks up the offense.  You don't want to throw him to the wolves if he isn't ready.  He may need a few weeks, or a few months, or he may be ready right away.  You don't know until you see him play.  You also may want to give the OL some time to gel before you put in Burrow.  It is likely there will be some new faces there and they may need time to get it together.  Joe Burrow is going to the be the QB of the Cincinnati Bengals.  The question is just when.

With the season he was having Joe and his Dad had to realize there was a good chance he was going to get drafted by a crappy team somewhere.

I know Cincy gets bashed a bunch but I would rather live in this area than Detroit any day of the week.

Detroit is nothing like the 80's/90's these days.  Dan Gilbert (Quicken Loans, Cleveland Cavaliers, the local casinos) relocated there, which meant City of Detroit/DPS itself was no longer the largest local employer.  It hasn't been all sunshine & roses but that was definitely a game changer for the city.  I wouldn't want to live there either but it's a really fun & interesting town if you're into music and/or history.   

 

Gun-to-head I'd move there before Cleveland & wouldn't waste much time thinking about it, to put it another way.

I am one of the few outsiders who actually LIKES Detroit...for many of the reasons you cited. In addition to the downtown upswing, some of the more ghastly sections of town (such as around Detroit Mercy) are being partly taken over by wealthier hipsters. Some fine breweries and eateries have sprung up. Still a far cry from a vacation spot, but for the occasional drive thru or business trip, really not that bad.

I go to Detroit once a year for the huge classic car Dream Cruise down Woodward avenue. Stay away from the burned out sections of town and it's pretty cool.

There isn't much traffic in and around Detroit anymore that is for sure.  I did read a lot of millennials are moving there due to extremely low cost of living and a lot of smaller tech firms moving there for same reason.   I don't think their fish have Aids either.
