The Cincinnati Bengals seem to be a bit hungover from the AFC Championship, and Joe Burrow is doing everything he can to refocus after a rocky start.
Burrow was asked on Wednesday if he had any thoughts on how people reacted on social media to the Bengals’ 0-2 start. The star quarterback said it’s not a problem for him as he doesn’t have Instagram and Twitter at the moment.
Burrow’s accounts are still active, but he later clarified that he deleted the Twitter and Instagram apps from his phone.
This is the primary way that many people access both social media platforms. Most star athletes have social media handlers, but Burrow hasn’t posted on Instagram or Twitter since Sept. 13. Even that post was just a promotion for Bose, so it’s not like he was very active on social media before.
Another NFL star recently told reporters that he also deleted social media apps from his phone, although he did so for a very specific reason.
The Bengals fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20 in overtime in Week 1. They then lost 20-17 on Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys, who started backup quarterback Cooper Rush. Burrow threw four interceptions against the Steelers. He’s already been sacked 13 times, which is obviously a huge issue that Cincinnati needs to address.
