Thank Christ... Burns has been playing a little to feminine to be wearing the black and gold. Maybe he'll locate his testicles on the bench.

I took close attention to Burns during the NE game/and replay. The avoid contact stories are in fact true. He is lolly gagging out there a lot.

As I say every year, the Steelers eventually get their team to the right place–– they just change course with the glacial pace of an oil supertanker.

Good to hear, hopefully this wakes him up and he stops being such a fucking pussy. I was hoping for a big improvement this year and really he hasn't all that much.

Now we get to see if Cam Sutton can be a starter or not.

I also can't help but see this as proof that the Steelers CB situation is pretty damn good.

Haden
Sutton
Hilton
Burns
Sensabaugh
Gay
Allen

Even without Haden, this would be the deepest crop of CBs we've had in decades... maybe ever. With Haden, it might be the deepest group we've ever had.

There was a play, late in the game against New England, can't recall exactly which one. But, he basically just tried to get in the way instead of put his helmet into the play. Biggest disappointing play/effort, I've seen all season so far by ANY player. I put my head down into my hands and sorta of knew right then, Burns wasn't who I thought he was going to be. I actually felt he was in for some "shit" when that play showed up on film.

He truly, did not even try to hide the fact, he was avoiding contact/making a tackle. What was MOST troubling; it was a CRITICAL play at a critical point in the game when the entire team, entire fan base, entire WORLD was fired up and ready to put a hit on a New England player coming their way. He didn't even get in the way, he back-offed!

Some cover skills, but shit for NFL "man balls"................

I just wish Burns would try and find the gonads he lost sometime during last year's AFCCG.
