Joe Burrow With Arguably The Worst Tackle Attempt We’ve Ever Seen

Throwing an interception on the four-yard line always sucks as a quarterback, but attempts at an open-field tackle to get your ankles broken (not literally) are much worse.

Joe Burrow made this mistake moments ago and he offered arguably the worst tackle we’ve seen this year. Not even close, dude.

Why do quarterbacks do this? And we hear it all the time: ‘you want to make the ball-carrier change directions and hopefully lose balance.’

How about not throwing interceptions as often, and when they do, just let your teammates make the tackle? Not giving up on the play always sounds like a commendable mission statement, however going shoulder first into a defender that just picked you off presents far too much risk compared to the reward.

Joe Burrow, get the hell out of the way and go get ’em in the second half. Leave the tackling to your teammates.
