I've been telling you all this was coming for years. You all wanted him shit canned and I kept saying dude has crazy get off at the line. Tried telling ya all.

QUESTION! What attributes make a WR the best? Catching? Route running? Speed? Temperament? What more of one thing can you handle if there is less than the other? Example, if he's slower, but catches everything, he can still be the best.

Adams is just lucky that Greg Jennings is out of the league, or Adams would be the SECOND best WR in the league.

He was specifically asked if he felt like he was the best directly after saying that his teammates play a big role in his success. What was he supposed to say?

Watch the interview. I think you’ll understand the context better. I see nothing wrong with what he said.

Asking an athlete if they are the best is a trap. You expect them to say, nah, I suck? Adams was humble in his answer and is humble. To suggest otherwise shows lack of listening to any interview with him.

That was a trap question. Like was already stated, what was he supposed to say? Like maybe.....”why don’t you ask Greg Jennings sister???”😂

(Sorry, this is off the subject) There is one thing I wish the Packers would be more aware of esp in "under control" game situations. IIRC he has been close to franchise and league records (receptions or yards) on a number occasions and he falls just short.

In such a situation, you would think the would throw him a screen or one of those hand-off like passes, just to eclipse those records.
Cheesey

I’ve thought about that too. I don’t know why they don’t do that. Let him get the records.
Could it be some clause in his contract that would get him paid more?
The last couple of seasons, didn’t he come up just short of 1000 yards? Maybe it also would have got him more money.

Aaron Rodgers spoke on this specific topic. He says doing that cheapens the achievement. He says he'd rather break records genuinely.

OK, I will grant you that on the cheapie yard pass. But occasionally they have taken him out of the game when the could have otherwise broken the record.

I disagree with Rodgers (well maybe no on a 0 yard catch), but if Adams beats his man, then it doesn't matter if you specifically know about the record and target him, bottom line is he still beat his guy... so what if you're calling a play that you know he'll beat the defensive guy or scheme, that is in fact part of the game.

If a coach schemes up a great play, like they did for TE Lewis TD play, where the defender thought he was going to run block, does that cheapen the fact that Lewis ran out that, and caught a touchdown?

No, Lewis still scored, that doesn't cheapen the scoring event at all, Rodgers still celebrated and was happy for his teammate and friend. It didn't matter that Lewis struggles to get open without scheme.

Adams is a fine WR, however a WR is only as good as the QB throwing him footballs. The QB needs an OL that can protect him. I ok with Adams confidence level, but in the end it is a team effort. I'm more pleased with the TE play so far this season. No "pro bowlers" at TE, yet they are measurably better than last season.

That’s true of any WR in any team. Would Jerry Rice not been as great I’d he didn’t have Joe Montana throwing him the ball?
Just as most great RBs (Barry Sanders the exception) have great 0-lines blocking for them.
Any good record is really a team effort.
Greg Jennings was pretty darn good when he had Aaron Rodgers throwing to him. Same with Jordy Nelson, Randal Cobb or James Jones.
They excelled because of a great QB. It works together for both sides.

I was ragging on 17 in the chat room for most of the game. At the same time, I said (and still believe) the Packers play 'soft.'

NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OF THE FOREGOING, The man stepped it up and sucked it up after he was dinged up. He put himself back in and was a stand up guy. He was gutting it out in the face of adversity and despite having a bad game.

THIS IS THE TYPE OF EFFORT, PERFORMANCE, AND LEADERSHIP WE NEED.

Smokey (8h) : MCL sprain is better than a tear, but still will require careful recovery. Nothing that needs to be rushed.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Antonio Brown been with Tampa Bay for four games. They are 1-3.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Report: Packers C Corey Linsley has MCL sprain
KRK (30-Nov) : I am not thinking happy thoughts about this game
Zero2Cool (30-Nov) : The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
yooperfan (30-Nov) : GO PACK GO
buckeyepackfan (30-Nov) : GO! PACK! GO!
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Phone says 37° with 14 mph winds. Yikes. Also, not excited for this game. More nervous.
Mucky Tundra (29-Nov) : Neither Denver or New Orleans have QBs under center today ;)
Cheesey (29-Nov) : Looks like low 30s and 16mph wind
beast (29-Nov) : Browns can't shake the Jags
Smokey (29-Nov) : What is the forcast?
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Wind is about 16 mph right now. I don't see any flags so can't tell how it compares to previous weeks.
yooperfan (29-Nov) : I hope it's not as windy in Green Bay as it is here. That would throw a wrench into our passing game.
packerfanoutwest (29-Nov) : The only way Hinton survives this game is if the Saints yell “three Mississippi” before rushing. Otherwise, just hand it off on every play.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Saints rolling with a TE/WR/QB at QB. Broncos got WR playing QB. Should be loads of entertainment. :-)
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Fly that flag high!!!
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Never read such a report about Wade failing to do that. Keep your fake news off your keyboard, mate.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Broncos starting a WR at GB. That's gonna be fun!
beast (29-Nov) : Wade Phillips reportedly fired for failure to do that. And that logic fails to address the Packers situation of not having the horse no matter what scheme you run.
beast (29-Nov) : Will the Jets Final win one?
yooperfan (29-Nov) : The Packers flag is up and flying in the breeze. GO PACK GO!
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : As Wade Philips said, you scheme to maximize the players you have, not force players into scheme. He's right.
beast (29-Nov) : The scheme leaves DL on Island, it'd work if the DL and ILBers were better, and we might already have rookies that will be good ILBers, now need the DTs.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : They've invested tons into defense. They need a better scheme.
Mucky Tundra (29-Nov) : *WR Kendall Hinton
Mucky Tundra (29-Nov) : Looks like the Broncos will roll with either RB Royce Freeman or Kendall Hinton. Hinton was a QB for 3 years at Wake Forest
Mucky Tundra (29-Nov) : Broncos have no eligible QBs available for Sundays game vs the Saints due to covid restrictions
beast (29-Nov) : I think they need to consider keeping Pettine but getting him better players. That being said, if the impatient Elway fires Vic Fangio, I'm on the phone.
beast (29-Nov) : No matter who we get to coach, we need better players. Pettine system needs a much better run defenders for it to ever have a chance.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : Patriots defense was more aggressive and improved after he left.
Zero2Cool (29-Nov) : You should read up on Patricia's defense before speaking such things. He's known for bend don't break and not being aggressive.
KRK (29-Nov) : If we part with Pettine, Patricia should be high on the list for replacements
Zero2Cool (28-Nov) : Lions relieved HC Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn of their duties.
Zero2Cool (27-Nov) : Ravens-Steelers being tentatively moved from Sunday to Tuesday night
beast (27-Nov) : I remember when I wanted WR Terry McLaurin and we selected TE Sternberger one pick before Terry McLaurin, now he's a stud for the Deadskins
beast (27-Nov) : I remember when I wanted WR Terry McLaurin and we selected TE Sternberger one pick before Terry McLaurin, now he's a stud for the Deadskins
TheKanataThrilla (27-Nov) : Remember when Packer fans wanted Montez Sweat. He is pretty good.
TheKanataThrilla (27-Nov) : Fake punt where was nerd...huge fail on that play Cowboys
nerdmann (26-Nov) : Like Mike's early days, sliding Daryn Colledge out to LT against the Vikes.
nerdmann (26-Nov) : Cowboys lose both Ts on first drive.
nerdmann (26-Nov) : Texans passing pretty much at will.
nerdmann (26-Nov) : Lions running the ball up the middle with Apete.

yooperfan (26-Nov) : Happy Thanksgiving to all from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
KRK (26-Nov) : Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
Zero2Cool (26-Nov) : Passer rating allowed in coverage for #Packers defense this season: Man Coverage: 83.2 (3rd) Zone Coverage: 104.3 (28th)
Cheesey (25-Nov) : I’d love to see what Dillon can do. Especially in 3rd and one.
Zero2Cool (25-Nov) : Matt LaFleur said RB AJ Dillon has returned to the building and is still working through the Covid-19 protocols. He said he still believes Dillon can contribute a lot to the team once he returns.
