If Joe Adams was.........

Recommended Posts

If Joe Adams was named Armanti Edwards you guys would be burning his jersey in the streets this morning. Wait, maybe I should have said if he was from App State. Either way, I guess he'll get a pass here or maybe it's just because the whole team was so awful, this doesn't seem like such a big deal. His two drops end up giving NY two field goals. I think I'll take 5 yards from a guy who catches the ball.

Of course, I'm certain someone will make the valid argument that Joe Adams was picked because of Armanti, and that Hurney is to blame for the whole stinking mess--- picking both of them.

Yep, I suppose we'll let Adams slide with the "rookie" label, but that was horrendous. The opening kickoff of the second half, the game was within reach and that drive could have turned the game. We'll never know.

I found it interesting that Armanti did get a kick return opportunity when the game was decided. Was Adams so shell shocked that he couldn't go back out there?

Munnerlyn needs to do the punts and Pilares on kicks. Bench Adams for a game or two to see if that sparks something in him. He looked flat out scared last night.

Notice Armanti returned the ball further than Adams did on his return as well - despite the holding call.

Who has said anything like this?

Adams doesn't get a pass but armanti has had his chances.

He was the worst punt returner in the league last year. Time to move on.

get your fuging app state butt hurt out of here. nobody gives a poo right now.

hell i'm an app state grad and i think you're full of poo

Ouch, between your avatar and your very thoughtful, but barely literate response, I'm wishing you hadn't mentioned that you went to ASU.

Would you rather have a guy who drops two balls in one game, which leads to two scores or a guy who catches the ball and gains a few yards each time? Yeah, I'd rather have something better than either of those choices too, but we haven't been presented with much else at this point.

And by the way, I think a post about a guy who is responsible for two turnovers is very legitimate and comparing his performance to the other players is also a worthy discussion. And yes, I am full of poo, but that is beside the point.

on man i'm so embarrassed geez. i sure do look dumb!

the victim complex app state fans have on this board gets tiresome. edwards got a pass similar to adams in 2010 and into 2011 even though he played nearly as poorly. we're on year three with him and we've seen almost zero development from him as a returner or wide receiver. you also seem to have forgotten that edwards had a terrible tendency to put the ball on the ground at the same point in his career as well. he was so bad in the preseason it got him benched and replaced by munnerlyn as the primary punt returner in 2010.

they're both terrible and it doesn't fuging matter. the whiny tone in your first post reeks of rearranging deck chairs on the titanic.

Agreed.

Victim complex? I'm just stirring the pot on a football message board (combined with some valid points). Thanks for you help with this, Pot.

Honestly, if I was AE or Clausen or any of the other guys who didn't spend much time in the game last night--- I'd be happy.

London67, really man, relax. This is football.
