Default Flozell Adams' open field tackle on Joe Haden

Anyone else go 'Holy shit!!' on that play? lol. Interceptions always suck but that was some hustle by the big man. And of course the size difference looked like a grown man bodyslamming a midget lol.

Has Adams been flagged a lot this season?

I seem to recall the rap on him in wretched hole sometimes called Dallas was that he was given to a lot of personal foul penalties. If so he seemed to have reformed his act since he became a Steeler.

Definitely the first time I've heard people laugh after the Steelers were intercepted. I was in 523 today and the people around me went from screaming/pleading for a tackle to cracking up. And I do think it saved a TD.

Flo was a nice pickup and took some heat during pre-season. It didn't take him long to get warmed up learning a new position though and he hasn't really been penalized. That's coaching/discipline. But that tackle was impressive.

Damn, I'm going to have to look for this when I watch the game again, I missed it. Tried to find a video of it and no such luck.
