PER SOURCE: The Steelers have elected not to pick up the fifth-year option on CB Artie Burns and he will become a free agent after the 2019 season. The former No. 1 pick would have cost the Steelers $9.594 million in 2020 if the team exercised the option. https://twitter.com/gerrydulac/statuses ... 7504280577

Is a response of "Duh!" an understatement? I doubt he even finds the field this season unless you count walking to the sidelines playing time. Total Bust.

I won’t be shocked if he’s cut...he should be cut.

Having used a first rounder on Burns and his below the line play may have cost this team a trip to the SB. I stress “may” because our head coach is Mike Tomlin

When a player comes out of college and plays well, then regresses to the point of total failure like this guy, that’s mostly poor coaching.

So I guess by saying that you're implying that Austin/Bradley have a slim but plausible chance to turn this bum around just in time for him to leave in FA..., where he'll sign with the cheats to go on and win a championship? :lol: :P :lol:

Perfect example of why drafting for need can bite you in the ass

BPA is often a much better approach

CanT go BPA all the time...but reaching because of need gets you Artie Burns

I don’t know...this guy may be so deep inside his own head that he’s toast. But we know that he can be decent enough because he’s done it early on. And the fact that the Steelers have made several attempts to upgrade the secondary coaching suggests that they aren’t satisfied with what they’ve had there.
As for the Pats...as long as he can follow instructions...”Artie, Ernie says to stand here”, they can fit him for his ring. :mrgreen:

I think his path back is via STs. If he devotes himself to ST contributions, better chance to smell the team. Make the team, better chance to get a chance when others can’t go.

Has this team drafted & developed a single DB that’s worth a shit since the former DB coach began masquerading as a HC?

Whether we take them high or low the result is the same.

12 years and not a single quality DB developed??

I can’t think of anyone

Last decent CB we drafted and developed was 1998

Deshea Townsend

Who am I missing?

The Gay Cock Burns trio really bit us in the ass.

Ike Taylor.

For the most part our best DBs have been through FA.

I tend to agree the-other-burg but I feel Hilton has developed fairly decent and still has a shot to cash in before the season starts. As far as their track records goes? Yeah, complete joke. Hopefully that changes with Austin in the mix. We'll see.

Cowher & Lebeau take a raw prospect from a small school in the 4th round that ultimately develops into a guy that would shadow a team’s best WR.

Tomlin & Butler take a guy in the 1st round that within a couple of years can’t be trusted to cover someone’s grandmother with a blanket.

Tomlin is the master of secondary coaching.

Who wants to bet he eventually goes elsewhere and becomes a decent CB?

Player development or draft? Ask Urbik.

Hard to be a good NFL player when you think you already have CTE even though you barely hit anyone.

Keep dreaming. Artie is a POS. As is Tomlin.

Which is why this might not be the coaches' fault unless we expect them to convince Artie he doesn't have and won't get CTE.
