The challenge for new CB Burton

Posted by Chris Brown on September 3, 2013 – 11:54 am

While there’s little debate that the style of Mike Pettine’s defensive scheme plays well to newly signed CB Brandon Burton’s strengths, he has the challenge of learning a defensive scheme at a time when the team is going to be more focused on game planning and narrowing the playbook for specific opponents each Sunday.

That leaves Burton with the challenge of carving extra time out of his weekly schedule to work on mastering the foundation of Buffalo’s defense to have himself ready to play sooner rather than later.

“Right now they’re game planning so they’re playing different defenses within the base defenses,” Burton told Buffalobills.com. “I still haven’t learned the base defenses and everything so I still have to get down the base stuff and the different techniques, the basics. I’m just trying to learn that right now and I know as time goes the specifics within the defense will come for me.”
