Rookie Artie Burns told me after practice he will start this week for vet Will Gay. It's the first NFL start for the No. 25 overall pick.

Idk he looks pretty soft in run support. But can this defense really get much worse?

That's what I was thinking. Haven't seen any practice reports lately.

This move isn't saying anything bad about Gay. He will play the slot where he should be. Still in the game 70%+ of snaps.

This says more about Davis right now.

I agree with TW. Burns looks soft against the run. Weak tackler. It is a fixable problem though. Like to see Davis get some more snaps at safety too.

Correct....the thread title should read...Will Gay to take over slot duties from Sean Davis, therefore, Artie Burns will start on the outside. Hopefully Burns' dimmer switch got turned up a little brighter during the bye week....it seems so.

Just remember the Pre-Troy secondary.

Artie's last name should had raised a three alarm Ron flag.
