Josh Jones & Montravius Adams?

Recommended Posts

I really doubt they assign each defender a specific player to cover.  Alexander will probably follow Edelman most of the time, and I'd expect to see Jackson or Jones get most of the reps against Gronk, but it's going to change a lot because of Pettine's predilection for blitzing his DBs.  My guess is they're going to chip Gronk a lot at the line and try to rely on Alexander locking down Edelman and Gronk taking awhile to get upfield.

All things considered I'm most interested in our plan to cover James White. I'm not a big fan of Burks and Whitehead handling that.

Gronk is banged up to the point where I'm not terribly concerned about focusing on him, but yes chipping will keep him honest.

Maybe Adams just isn't quite there strength wise after missing so much time with the foot injury?

 

As for Jones, what have we seen from him to suggest that he should be on the field? Some special teams penalties and getting beaten like a drum against second and third stringers in preseason.  The guy is a good athlete, but he isn't playing against Wake Forrest anymore.  When put in the same situations Brice, Whitehead, Greene, and Evans all played better than Jones.  A better question than why hasn't Jones played, is why did we cut Marwin Evans?

Another thought I had with Jones after the Tramon to safety news.  Was Jones maybe a piece tailored to the Dom Capers defense? With a different scheme emphasizing different things, maybe we just have a guy who just doesn't fit? Or maybe he is just bad.

Maybe both. I'm a bit surprised Pettine hasn't tried him at LB, but that's now Burks role I guess. Rouse, Richardson, and now Jones. Will be interesting if Gute continues to chase the next Chancellor or not. 

To me, Adams is the mystery. Haven't heard anything on his limited playing time, but obviously not a good sign if a guy like Lancaster can come in out of nowhere and get more snaps than him

Tramon probably draws that straw before Whitehead does

I know pff isn’t the be all, but M Adams is graded a 30.6. That is can’t play bad. Either he is damaged goods, he doesn’t fill his assignment and freelances, or a combo of both

He had 5 snaps and did this on one of them

Compare Clark vs Adams taking on the same double team. Not even close.

Adams .. no anchor and no compete is no way to go thru life in the NFL.  No wonder he rarely sees the field .. just a complete liability.  Looks like he will wash out of the NFL quickly unless he gets stronger and tougher.
