Well, At Least Davante Adams is Angry

Davante Adams is garbage

Not much has been seen or heard from Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams since he stunk up the field on Thanksgiving night.

Was he hiding? You could say that.

He certainly didn’t want to face the media, but he didn’t have a choice when the Packers returned to practice on Sunday.

So what did Adams, who dropped three passes and got called out by both coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers after the game, have to say for himself?

He started by saying he’s still angry about his performance, then went on to make some excuses about his poor route running. Rodgers has alluded to the idea that Adams’ route running directly contributed to the interception he threw against Chicago.

Adams seems to disagree.

“Each play is different,” Adams said. “It’s not going to be perfect, like we draw it up and do it in practice. Nobody is hitting Aaron. So I’m going to be able to get my depth – do this, do that – and he’s going to be able to throw a better ball than if he’s getting pressure. And I’m going to be able to catch it better than if somebody is over my back.

“It’s not going to be a perfect route every time. It’s not going to be perfect. We’ve got to click on the opportunities that we do have and get on the same page as much as possible.”

You know how we feel about guys who don’t hold themselves accountable…

LOVE THEM!

Regardless of whose fault that one particular play is, we do know this. Adams doesn’t run good routes.

He looks like he’s loafing half the time.

Clearly, someone who’s making excuses for himself isn’t likely to change. We expect little to nothing from Adams anymore.

The Packers just need to stop throwing him the ball.

Problem solved.

    I’m fiending for some Game View. Can’t wait to watch Adams blow goats in slow motion.

    Biggest bitch on the team. Wouldn’t be opposed to cutting him

    Davante is not the same person he was before his injury. He ran crisp, tight routes in Training Camp and caught almost everything that came his way. His routes now are like wilted lettuce. He has no effort when he’s route running, very lackadaisical. Then he pouts looking for a PI or holding call. He needs to hold himself accountable, man up, grow a pair, and ball out. I know he can do it. Let’s see if he can step up.

    I seen the video of that interview. Either he had a bead of sweat rolling down his face or it was a tear.

    Just to keep it real, he’s not the only receiver loafing.

    This guy needs to get his shit together for sure. For a second round pick on the shit list his rides and his girl are far to expensive and nice looking. By looks of his instagram his off the field life looks like he’s a prime candidate for the next 30 For 30 series on ESPN, Broke part two.

    Although it pains me to say this, a lot of Rodgers passes haven’t exactly been on point lately, some throws behind receivers, a lot of low throws, forget thinking about interceptions, and let that thing fly like you use too. The line also has to step it the fuck up. Giving Rodgers 2.1 seconds to make a throw doesn’t exactly give the receiver a lot of time to get open, or downfield, hence why most passes are dink and dunk, and the receiver gets tackled immediately after the catch. The opposing defenses are doing a good job of holding the edge and not letting Rodgers work his way outside and buy more time, like in the past. The passing game is just getting suffocated is the best way i know how to describe it.

    Just my .02

      The thing about the line is that while Bakhtiari and Bulaga are not often letting guys run free, Bulaga is setting up his block much deeper in the backfield and Bakhtiari gets bull rushed right back into Rodgers. The result is that the pocket is much smaller and Rodgers usually has a defensive end right in his face often causing him to take off. Rodgers has got the yips because of Bulaga.

    On the interception, that was one of the laziest routes I have ever seen run. Never seen anyone put so little effort into trying to get to the ball. Christ I put as much effort as I can into my 50k a year job, this guy can’t do it for 700k. Jesus christ.

    If only we had a coach who could motivate people, he and half the team would be better.

    There is no way Adams is getting cut. Adams should watch the game from the bench for a while. I believe the Pack actually let Adams sit for two series after he dropped the slant that would have been close to, if not a TD. Janis played those two series and Rodgers did not even appear to look his way. It also appeared that Janis had the best chance at catching a pass on the final play against the Bears. Janis was in the endzone and had his defender behind him with his face to Rodgers. I was surprised how many offensive plays Janis actually saw in the game.

    So most would like to see Janis get a chance, however if Rodgers never looks his way isn’t that like cutting the field almost in half in the passing game. Kind of like how the passing game looked against Sherman and the Seahawks last year.

    This all goes back to the Packers moving Edgar Bennett from receivers coach to offensive coordinator. Bennett knew how to coach receivers – he was a great receiver as a running back – but I don’t think Alex Van Pelt, who has taken on both the QB and receiving coaching duties, has a clue.

    I have felt for quite some time that Rodgers is “fucking off” Janis for some reason (personality clash?). it is QUITE EVIDENT that he is avoiding him just by looking at the game film each week. Something not so good may be happening between those two, or Rodgers has been told not to look Janis’ way . . .

    bob, I second that on wanting to see the game view. I’d like to see an evaluation of Janis. I think he had like 16 snaps on offense. I don’t think he had any balls thrown to him, so it would be interesting to see how he performed in terms of getting open, running routes, making reads/blocks, etc. Maybe he wasn’t open any more than the rest, or maybe we’d see that Rodgers ought to have thrown to him.

    Bam! Howard again shows why he’s my favorite commenter on these boards. Always right on the money.

  15. Andrew November 30, 2015

    Totally agree. Look no further than Rodgers post game comments versus SD when Rodgers does everything in his power to give Janis zero credit.

    It was like he couldn’t bring himself to say anything positive.

    Olivia thinks he’s hot or something. ARodge is being a bitch about it.

    1. PF4L November 30, 2015

      Yea….that’s probably it.

    2. MMTTDCSUCK December 1, 2015

      I actually wondered about Rodgers paying no love to Janis that evening as well. It seemed odd.

    Allen Robinson would’ve been my pick… Just saying
