I want to defend Joe Adams

Let's hope this is just a rookie thing that will be corrected... soon.

He holds it out there for someone to strip it away

i'd rather kealoha do kicks though. adams gets too lateral and looks for the big play. kick returners just need to barrel towards the first hole they see. pilares is good at that. he had a couple good ones last season.

On punts its all about making people miss, on kickoffs its all about seeing a hole and getting there fast as you can. Joe Adams is slowing down on kickoffs looking for the hole like a punt return but the way the players are coming down that works out for the other team.

He is not going to succeed with how poor our blocking is. I think he could be pretty effective in the right system.
That's been the case the past couple of years. It appears that the return guy may not have been the problem. Hopefully, he can get the fumbles fixed, then move forward with making good returns.

Adams ain't worth crap. Put Armanti in to do punts. He didn't fumble any last year. At the rate Adams is going we will have 40 fumbles for loss this year. It's an important thing to have confidence in your punt returner. Adams is NOT the answer for sure. Edwards IS the answer.
Genius! Let's put Edwards in for Cam too! Genius! Edwards can then throw the touchdown pass to Edwards (himself) because Edwards will also be playing WR! Genius! Then put Edwards in to kick the PAT! Genius! Edwards NFL MVP! Genius! Genius! Genius!

It's a lot of pressure for 22 year old kid and I have to say probably a little intimidating playing the world champions on national tv. Give him some time he'll pull it together.
