He never had a concussion...
True or not, this explains why he tries to avoid to tackle.

Take the test. If you have it you need to think about retiring for your health and future. If you don't then play the game like you mean it (or retire for precautionary reasons) but don't assume you have it and milk the FO playing chicken shit football. Myself I'd want to know.

It's been more like CRS (can't remember shit) as in who to cover and who to tackle and who not to interfere with.

At first I rolled my eyes and shook my head at this post. Then I started laughing.

At the worst possible time, the Steelers are dealing with yet another injury on defense.

Is it really the 'worst possible time'? Burns has been anything but spectacular at his position. As the article mentions he ranked 48th. Burns, at times, has shown moments of brilliance, but for the most part his season has been average at best.

With or without him, I still believe we have the advantage in the secondary over the Jaguars WRs.

Biggest problem is depth. We can't sustain another injury at CB anymore now. We have Haden, Sutton and Hilton. The drop off to Sensabaugh is huge and both Haden and Sutton are injury prone (this year and previous years). Burns isn't great but he's at least acceptable and was always available until now.

The way Burns has played I don't see Sensabaugh as that much of a drop off. I forgot about Sutton and the report is he'll play if Burns can't go.
