That's Joe

Wearing a bucket hat and a new haircut, Joe Burrow tries to explain a vision almost no one else can see.

It's summer in Louisiana, the heat so hot it's made Burrow trim his flowing, Midwestern locks and don a Dri-FIT boonie for the first time in his life. He's from The Plains, a tiny Appalachia township in Southeast Ohio. Even after a year on the bayou, he's still getting used to the climate.

The reporters gathered around Burrow at the Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, Louisiana, are so close that it can't help matters, thermally speaking.
