Final Thoughts

– To be fair, Bart Houston has thrown a lot of checkdowns to artificially inflate his completion percentage, moving him ahead of Josh Dobbs, but Dobbs’ percentage has been low since camp and has yet to come up.

– You can see how quickly the Steelers wanted James Conner back involved in the offense. One day in team drills and he had eight carries and five receptions.

Fitzgerald Toussaint…I don’t know what to make of him. Still getting first team reps ahead of Knile Davis but not many carries. I guess it’s an element of knowing what they have in him and wanting to find out about Davis.

Brandon Brown-Dukes has six carries over the past four practices. Oof.

Terrell Watson nearly has as many carries as Toussaint.

– Updated AB vs numbers.

AB vs Artie Burns: 13/27 (48%) 1 TD
AB vs Everyone Else: 18/25 (72%)) 8 TDs

Burns is the best corner on this roster.

Antonio Brown with three drops. For him, that’s considered a lot.

– DHB and Phazahn Odom catching just a third of their passes…I don’t know how that number is so low.

Eli Rogers has the most catches/targets without a drop.  Justin Hunter close behind. Hands better than people say.

    DHB stats really surprised me. Don’;t know if special teams play will compensate – Sammie Coates may benefit if he knocks off the rust quickly.

  • Thomas

    I don’t know what people see in Fitz, every time I see him run in a game he appears to be a below average runner who can get what’s blocked at a maximum. He looked absolutely terrible the pre-season game and I can’t think of one time he’s actually put a hit on a defender and kept going.

  • Nathanael Dory

    Im actually impress with Burns..Woow

  • Delboka

    There is no way Houston or Brown compete for a 3rd QB spot.

  • Trueish90

    I know he’s missed time but how has Dupree looked?

  • WreckIess

    Honestly, the amount of drops AB has is probably due to the coverage that Artie has been putting on him. I know it’s just practice, but the fact that Burns is winning their matchups (barely, but still) is impressive. He’s really proving his draft day doubters wrong, including me.

  • Alex Kozora

    Eh, I don’t think any of them have been a result of anything Burns did on the play.

  • WreckIess

    Got you. That’s kind of strange for AB then. He’s not normally one who loses focus.

  • T R

    they don’t surprise me, cause I noticed most passes to him where throw way out of rich and out of bounce so they was not on target. and most his passes where long bomb unlike eli short passes across the slot.. That my excuses for him and I am sticking with it
