Van here is the things plenty of players have enviable tools but far more never put them all together than do. That is why the NFL is nicknamed not for long. Adams was poor v Texans and good v Colts. That doesnt spell replacing an established player that is a far better LT than posters on this board would have you believe. You look around the league and Im hard pressed to come up with 10 or more LTs playign better.

I remember the Mike Adams from last season mate two games doesnt make that disappear.

Last but not least I could care the fuck less what round he was drafted in. If we used that as logic to picka team AB would be riding pine and Deebo wouldnt have made it in this league.

If you didnt blithely dismiss the entire issue that Adams has been playing out of position at LT, and sucks there, while he is solid if not better at RT, your post might have some merit. How Adams plays at LT has no relationship to how he plays at RT. Everyone who says keep him at RT is acknowledging that he cant play LT, his natural position is RT. Oh, and as for his performance last game, I thought JJ Watt was underwhelming once Adams replaced Gilbert at RT. But you can keep on ignoring is good performances at the position he excels in, and concentrate on how he sucked playing out of position.

Except that Adams was a wonderful D1 major conference LT and neither Beachum nor Gilbert was

Fuck the Patriots.
