Jamal Adams gets skewered on Twitter after rough game vs. Rams
The Seattle Seahawks gave Jamal Adams a big bag of money just before this season started, locking him in four more years and making him the highest-paid safety in the NFL by a comfortable margin.
Adams is still a talented defender, but he hasn’t lived up to his end of the bargain thus far this season. He had his worst game yet last night against the Rams, making multiple mistakes in coverage that led to explosive plays or touchdowns. Now, Twitter is letting him have it. Here are some of the meanest tweets we could find about Adams’ rough game.
Aikman: "That's Higbee on Jamal Adams, and it's no contest. … It's a mismatch with him on Jamal Adams."
That can't be a thing said about the highest-paid safety in football.

The Seahawks are allowing 450.8 yards per game this season — on pace to be the worst in NFL history.

Huge bust by Jamal Adams on that long play. Can’t happen. Can’t. Safety has to prevent that from happening. He’s been a compete and utter disappointment so far this season

An NFL front office really thought Jamal Adams would be worth two first round picks, this is insane.

Things probably wouldn’t be so bad if the Seahawks simply let Jamal Adams be Jamal Adams. This year Seattle has been blitzing him less than half as often as they did last season.
One of many questions with Seattle's last-ranked defense: Why is Jamal Adams spending so much time in coverage and not rushing nearly as much? He's rushed the passer 17 times through five games, per @ESPNStatsInfo, and doesn't have a sack. He averaged 8.25 rushes/game last year.

Forget the blitz boy jokes. The strength of Adams game is not in coverage – although it’s not as bad as it’s made out to be. Pete Carroll and Ken Norton Jr. need to let Adams embrace his true nature and wreak havoc in the box.
