I don't know what game y'all were watching. How many sacks did he give up? Beach um almost got gradkowski killed twice. Then again, Jason Pierre Paul is no joke. Adams held his own against him.

Once our starting 5 linemen left the game it is pretty easy to see Adams and Wallace are our next best 2.

He's certainly not perfect. He seems to get easilly off balance when he gets out of his stance into a back pedal, but he seems to maintain his position and use his giant wingspan just long enough.

He won't hold a 5 second block on every passing down, but only the greatest linemen do.

When he does appear to get beaten, I think he recovers really well to prevent a sack or disruption of a play.
