Adams didn't blow the 50-50 ball. He played it great. Roberson had the pick and Adams took it away from him.

Agreed.  I thought it was a great defensive play by Adams. 

I think Adams is a good receiver but fans are on him.  The only play where I thought Adams did not do well was where Collaros scrambled and ?overthrew? Adams.  If Adams keep running and did not break off or give up that would have been a big gainer or maybe a touchdown.  That said they have not played with each other as of late and usually BB QBs run or throw to the back.  Adams will have to play a little more heads up.

PJ, you do realize that one great play does not negate all criticism directed his way, right? Just like if our defense has one good game that it doesn't "make the haters crawl back under their rock"?

correct he has been wickedly inconsistent. To many drops to be a #1 WR.

To suggest that everyone or all would think I would make this post is ridiculous but a little bit funny at the same time.  Big fan of Adams and I posted a video of him playing well.  My point was that he isn't the worst staring receiver in the league and I have provided a great example to back that up.  Didn't suggest anything else.  I don't see what this has to do with the defense but great job at making this about me.  I would suggest you focus on the ball club, the debate about the team.  Thanks for coming out!

Glad you found the poll razz funny (if you didn't get it, it was a shot at you making a poll where all voting options were essentially the same).

While the thread title was a bit hyperbolic, the main content of the thread pointed out that Adams has been extremely underwhelming in his position compared to the output of the equivalent for other teams. Posting an exceptional example does not prove otherwise. Just waiting for a divergence from a trend to throw out a toldyaso.

This is my opinion and I have every right to it. Folks can pile on and bully me but I will always defend myself.

Albeit I am not a big Adams fan....he has made a few plays lately and he broke up a possible interception on a 50/50 ball.   He also has a QB now than can utilize his strengths and get him the ball a few more times a game.   He's what we have now and he's healthy....so I'm hoping to see some improvement in his production!

Adams didn't blow the 50-50 ball. He played it great. Roberson had the pick and Adams took it away from him.

Adams made a great defensive play, sure.  But he's a WR, not a DB.  A great WR would have come back for that ball, or slowed down earlier, and made the DB look like he was impeding him or just been in a better position than the DB.  As per the OP, a "better" WR, like Burnham or Begleton, might have made a play on that ball.  They'd find a way.

Yes, Collaros could have thrown a better ball, but not every ball is perfect.  That pass was the definition of a 50/50 ball and it's our WR's job to find a way to get it done.  The OP point is Adams rarely does, at least not this year.

I love Adams and wouldn't hesitate to keep him on the roster at a reasonable price, but he isn't the 50/50 answer the BB's desperately need.

Roberson had body position. You cannot blame the receiver for running his route correctly and the QB delivering a poor throw.

Adams sucks.

And he is slow . He can't out run or out jump anyone.
On the punt return he stepped out of the way of the return guy.  I thought he was the kicker, until I saw the other punter step aside,

You can at least fall down in front of the returner..

**** no wonder this team is losing.  Too many passengers.

Well, this comment has aged well. I think a lot depends on who is throwing the ball, don't you think? An actual qb or a running back who can play qb.

both of those throws to Adams were bad decisions on the part of the QB as he was covered well in both instances... but at least Darvin broke up the interception this week where he didn't the week before... but neither of those balls should have been thrown... period...

Exactly. The title of this thread is brutally inaccurate... But then I saw the author, so it makes sense.

The fact is no receiver is having a memorable campaign in this offense. The talent is there; the usage is embarrassingly poor.

we have a few weeks to ponder our future but rehashing this thread seems a little redundant....some new threads please!?
