    Mike Adams

    Tossed around like a rag doll again last night. Another inconsistence player ala Wallace. Some plays he looks positively beastly, then suddenly takes a few plays off and is doing his best Marcus Gilbert impression.
    Did someone mention he showed these tendencies as a Buckeye?? Awfully frustrating to watch someone with his physical stature getting bitchslapped by no-name defensive tackles.

    Mike Adams is a rookie, because of an injury to Gilbert he has been forced to play before he's ready. he needs time to develop...

    Yup. The Steelers got duped by him and his "drive to Pittsburgh HQ" to appeal to them... Anyone with his supposed athletic talent, along with high-caliber coaching at a major D1 school, should DOMINATE on his talent. He didn't. THAT RIGHT THERE is your red-flag--just like red-flags for character, medical red-flags, etc. That should've taken him off our draft board essentially.

    He lacks the mental necessities.

    yup, just like we should have done with Troy Polamalu and Keenan Lewis and any other rookie who wasn't an All-Pro right away.

    I'm not saying the guy is great or anything but at least he's starting and quite possibly will continue starting after Gilbert returns. He's the only rookie we have that #1 could stay healthy and #2 start

    I don't agree with that. But we should be looking to the next draft once again...

    I don't agree with that either. Are you being sarcastic?

    Obviously can't cut him, but I am quite sure he will be gone soon enough. I was never on the Polamalu, Timmons, or most of the other "cut that guy" hype train. If you are watching this MNF game, can you imagine what Aldon Smith will do if he ever gets a chance against Mike Adams and Max Starks (if you recall what he did to Starks last year). Now as I type this, I can't fathom how we were able to do anything vs. the Giants (i.e. JPP).

    Aldon Smith would DESTROY Mike Adams. He would set the NFL record against Adams.
