Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams took what should be a considered a cheap shot from Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis on Sunday. The hit, clearly on a defenseless player and helmet-to-helmet, occurred on one of Aaron Rodgers’ three interceptions.
In addition to being illegal, it was also unnecessary. Adams was nowhere near the play. The hit resulted in a concussion. Naturally, Adams wasn’t too pleased about it.
I’ll never understand it. Game is already dangerous enough and we got Pro Bowl players out here head hunting and saying they “didn’t mean to harm me”
Somebody please explain to me what I wasnt trying to hurt him means when we nowhere near the play and u lead with ya head and ear hole a defenseless player….
Look it’s football but no room for shit like that. We supposed to be in this together n look out for one another not mess with a mans livelihood and hand out unnecessary concussions. We all got mouths to feed what if I did that to him and his kids cant eat…
Not the type to rant but when u go through this shit twice in a year it takes a lil toll on u so excuse me.
That prompted an apology from Davis.
I understand your frustration and I do apologize for the hit! In no way was I trying to hurt you. My first instinct was turn and make a block. In all sincerity I do apologize. I truly respect you as a player and I made a mistake!
