Hear how dejected Steelers’ Artie Burns sounds about his season

October 31, 2018 GMT

If you read the story our Joe Rutter posted about Steelers cornerback Artie Burns, you may have walked away saying, “Flip over, Artie. You’re all done on this side.”

If you didn’t, you will after you hear the quotes in the interview spoken out loud. Actually, saying out loud is barely accurate.

Muttered. Mumbled. Grumbled. That may be the better way to describe Burns’ media interaction Tuesday.

Take a listen for yourself. I didn’t edit it so that you could draw your own conclusions. The pauses and extended stretches of silence were every bit as difficult to sit through in person as they are for you to hear on your own.

But I wanted to play them for you “as is” so you get the authentic vibe of how little confidence Burns appears to have left.
