    Pretty sure you could stash him on the PS with no worries about anyone taking him away.

Why would the coaching staff leave him out there alone when pee wee players could tell he was in trouble. Towards the end Adams was just giving up. He sucks, but the coaches suck too for offering no help.
    Well, some of that may be on Bellcow. I remember at least one play he scooted left and their right end charged right up the vacated alley to nail BB. Im thinking a more experienced back would have recognized the danger and stayed in to have a go.

    No.
    Who's to say what the future holds (especially just a fan like me)? But I will tell you that we will not regret one day, cutting a drain like Adams. As for "yanking him", that HAS TO happen. Otherwise, where is the accountability? I read an article, where they seemed to say that Adams might continue to keep his starting job. If that happens, that is ridiculous! You can't let the WORST player continue to hold on to his job, when you (Tomlin) just said he's taking inventory of each/every player and their contribution. The question to me on Adams, is whether he should be cut outright. IMO, he should.

    Sometimes you just have to let them play to get the experience. I'd leave him in there for now. Let's not forget that he went up against one of the best in Jered Allen. Yea, I'll admit I'd rather have Starks in there at this point, but we gotta see what we have in these guys at tackle, just because they are so young.... I'm willing to wait it out. Just hope BB doesn't get killed in the process....

    He can't be as bad as Adams. I just don't think he adds enough, to make it worth bringing him back. Also, he adds nothing in terms of an attitude shift.
    Max just got released by the Rams today

    Think at least the FO made a play for Eugene Monroe? Not sure what the ratbirds gave up but I'd do a 2nd and 4th. Maybe more when I think of Ben hitting the ground hard again.

    F-k, that would have been a COUP, to sign someone of Monroe's ability! It would've also gave teeth to Tomlin's edicts about trying to win.

    I doubt the steelers could've paid his salary even if they traded for him.
