Adams must of really pissed of RR.


Cam has taken a lot of heat for that NYG game (some of it deserved) but those two fumbles from Adams were devastating.

Remember when Adams was "such a draft steal" and was "going to take Armanti's roster spot"???

If Gettis is going to be returning kicks, that means he volunteered to do so.
He's wanting to get on the field and make an impact.

Surprised nobody has even mentioned this.

If Gettis returns one past the 35, it'd be worth it.

^ *have

And meh... Gettis is fast, but doesn't seem very agile or elusive once the ball is in his hands.


Kickoff returning and punt returning are different skill sets.

For kickoffs, you generally want a straight-line speed guy. That's Gettis.

Agility and Elusiveness are what you want in a punt returner. That's more Adams persona.

Just saw this. My guess is they have to give hims something to do as he'll still be rusty running plays.


Agree. I expect he is going to earn offensive snaps only after he "flashes" (as Ron likes to say) in practice.

People don't give Gettis enough credit on his cuts. The dude can Cut! Watch his first TD. Completely broke clements ankles. He can cut with the best of them.

Rivera during the Giants game: Fumble again and you wont see the field before X-mas!!

Adams: No problem, I got it coach!

Well, it is not x-mas yet...
