I want to defend Joe Adams

He had 2 fumbles Thursday.... He played like ass like the rest of the team. But you can tell this kid is explosive and ready to become lethal. He is a young player and we have to watch him go through the growing pains but I think he has what it takes to become one of the best returners in the league, you can tell he's simply faster and more explosive than Pilares. I think he will be very good and dangerous if we're patient, you knew he was going to have some fumbles this year. The LAST thing we need to do is go back to Pilares-Edwards. It's obvious neither are as dangerous as Adams, they may just be a little better at holding on to the rock right now but Adams will get it fixed.

I really like what I'm seeing from him right now, you can tell he's eager to make an impact and that eagerness may be why we've seen a few fumbles from him so far. I can just tell from watching him compared to Pilares and Edwards hes more dangerous. I'm still high on him as a returner.

Im not sure why they are asking for him to take the ball out of the end zone so deep but its not working. Also I have come to the fact we could have Hester and he still would be shitty with the crapy blocking we do.

Probably bc we have zero defense......and if ST doesn't give Cam something it is a repeat of last year. we go out every week asking a young QB to beat everyone......which is a touch task when teams are actually complete teams Lin all 3 phases.

He had a bad night under the bright lights against the world champions... he'll pull it together.

Yea its does seem like we are looking for that spark but it starts with the defense. With the defense was half as creative as our offense is.

What has anyone seen from this guy? I haven't seen a damn thing. He's 23rd in kick returns and 20th in punt returns and has 2 fumbles to go along with it

It'd be nice to pull things back a bit for him, drop him to just punts for a while. He's definitely explosive as a KR, but he's not a fluid player. He's all shake and bake. Problem is, Pilares is that fluid player who doesn't get the right blocking and so it's hard to tell if he can pick the hole and go, but Pilares is also less likely to make a mess for an 18-22 yard gain that's not worth the risk.

It was one of our strengths under Scott O'Brien.

Lets see.. It was one of the original pillars that this franchise was founded on. Michael Bates was on the 90's All-Decade team for the work he did here. Bates and Kasay, we had killer special teams.

lmao at someone feeling the need to defend an NFL player in a forum.

when he fumbled the kickoff to open the second half he ended the game. In a night where a spark was needed he, in a position and possessing the skill to provide one, failed miserably. He was definitely not alone in failing to execute on Thursday but he failed just as much or more than the rest of the Panthers.

I had defended him in a thread a few minutes before he muffed the punt. I was saying how he's not a kick returner and wait until you see him on punts. Then he failed not 5 minutes later and I felt like an idiot.

I still think he has absolutely great potential if he can get the fumbling under control. And if he can't, maybe he'll be so good that it's worth it. Hester has 28 fumbles.

I was surprised how poorly he played. Outside of punting and kicking our special teams are complete ass.

He's only played 3 NFL games though, his career isn't over yet.

I'm excited about Joe's potential, but with everyone else disappointed with Thrusday. I'm hoping he spends alot of time this week doing nothing but fielding kicks (even better if they can do it under pressure).
