Adams calls TD “Head Hunter”

Recommended Posts



I wouldn't call TD a head hunter, but that was unnecessary. TD plays the game hard and fast... Old school, but with how the league is trying to approach player safety, he just can't play it how it should be played anymore. Hope Adams is ok, but the part I laughed at was the look on Luke's face on the replay.. was kinda like "oh... He's fuged" haha

TD has always played this way. He's gotten lucky that no one has been seriously hurt, besides that Green Bay Packer rookie whose career he ended years ago. He's a good dude and he does a lot for charity, but that doesn't change the fact that he plays balls out and hits like a freight train. He's lead with his head before. I would imagine it's instinctual from years of playing that way before many of the rule changes. If someone hits one of our guys like that, I want them ejected. I can't feel too upset at the Packers calling for the same thing. I doubt they'll get any satisfaction other than an incoming fine though. 

For what it's worth, it seemed like after that hit, several of their DBs made it a point to tackle our receivers and drive their shoulders into the ground. Two shoulder stingers in one series is suspicious.

it was a bad hit. with TD's rep and his reaction afterwards i would argue a dirty hit doesn't necessarily mean a dirty player. he didn't stand over him or some poo.

the packers are whining because now they're probably going to miss the playoffs. someone pissed in their cheerios and TD is the easiest target for their tears of anger.

oh well

Adams has every right to be upset. It was a real POS move by Davis

People are going to poo you, but you are right.  

Can't talk poo about Odell Beckham for clocking Josh Norman in 2015, and not call out TD for this hit.  

No excuse for it. 

 

I love TD, my top 3 panthers of all time, but this was shitty.  Hopefully, he is remorseful.  

 

If someone took a shot like this at Cam, we would want the guy kicked out of the league.

IMO opinion it's not looking good for Davis, as 1) the block was an illegal crack-back block, 2) it was clearly helmet to helmet contact, 3) he injured the other player who no longer could play the game, and 4) Davis is already fined this year for an illegal blow to the helmet.  Like it or not, I think Davis is going to be suspended, regardless of what his intent was or how sorry he felt afterward.

Which brings up another question -- if Davis has to sit, is Shaq ready to go?

I was quite disappointed in TD after that bs and I know he was too. He has been around too long to make that mistake, I felt he should have been removed from the game.

He also flipped off fans as he walked off the field, but whatever.  He has a right to be pissed, but It happens.  Defenders aren't exactly used to doing the whole blocking thing.

It's really hard to argue with this.

At the end of the day, I think it's important to be consistent on these player safety issues. People get caught up in the selfish fan aspect of it, but at the end of the day all these guys out there playing are human beings. TD knew it was wrong. I can't say if it was headhunting, I don't think Davis would intentionally set out to take a player out of the game, but then again I don't know him personally. Either way, in the end, this is a bad look, and he knows it.

Yea, it was a horrible move by TD and he should’ve been ejected. He’ll get fined, and honestly he should be suspended.

If I was Adams I’d be upset too.
