Joe Haden was a top 10 pick, and he's a finished, polished product. Burns wasn't, and isn't. He does, however, have plenty of ceiling left.

Agreed.

Some of you are making the Dick LeBeau argument for keeping Burns on the bench until he's 30.

I hope the Steelers sign Joe Haden longer term...his contract explodes next year.....

How many TDs has Burns given up ?

Burns has been fine. For years, we complain that the Steelers prioritize CBs run defense prowess over pass defense. Now, we are bitching the corner doesn't play the run well enough? BS.

Burns has been beat a few times the last few weeks. I've also seen him making some nice closing plays throughout the year. He hasn't made the leap I'd hope but he is playing fine. There is some strong recency bias going on here.

I ask: did you look at the stats I posted above and still think he's doing okay?


Those are based on a 64 scale ?.....If so they dont look to bad....top 50% on all....in some cases much better

Love Burns.

He's a future Pro Bowler.

Zero doubt about it.

That would be quite nice, but I just don't see it with him.

Occasionally beaten, few PBU's, not good vs the run, and just sort of meh watching him play.

Hope you're assessment turns out to be true.

Ike Taylor just named Haden and Burns the number three, top duo in the NFL. That's after Stafford racked up 400 yds. He must not have seen the Detroit tape.
