Default Re: Vontaze Burfict

even the Bengals' DC was quoted as saying he didn't want Burfict even as an UDFA.

Burfict made lots of tackles last night, but it seems like the Steelers were running right at him and I saw him get blocked rather easily a couple of times.

and that pancake block Willie Colon put on him was a classic, did you see Willie dry humping poor Vontaze when he was on top of him?

Didn't Marvin Lewis say that Burfict would never play for the Bengals, after Burfict refused to run for Lewis, when Lewis visited ASU...???

I wonder what happened? Did Burfict pull a Mike Adams, and drive to see the Bengals front office???

I have watched Troy P get the better of several linemen. Size has nothing to do with it. Burfict might have decent ability. He hasn't even had one offseason to do something ridiculously stupid. Give him time. He will be out of the league in a few years if not sooner.

Once he considers himself a "star" the problems may reappear.
Right now he's still an undrafted FA who made the team.
Bottom line, I wish we took a shot with him using one of those 7th round picks.
Who'd we get, only Beachum out of those?????

Paulson.

The coaches love him, and from what I've seen, the kid has caught EVERY pass that has been thrown his way.

Marvin Lewis said.... lol

How can his name even be listed in a positive light in a sentence.

I agree he made some good plays. ILBs often are designed to be free to make plays. I don't think Burfict is the physically dominant stud ILB this defense needs that is unblockable. He could have a good career as an Urlacher type if the defense covers up for him- but I expect to see him on some highlight films getting run over.

He had 15 tackles against us, however, I read yesterday that after the game (cant remember if it was Espn.com, SI.com NFl.com, or cbs) that he was joking and screwing around after the loss, in fact a couple of teammates (in that reporters eyes) took exception to it.
Give the kid time, laying in Cincy will likely bring out the "worst" in him.
