People take football very seriously. Sometimes too seriously. I’m here to change that one play at a time. For any plays you’d like me to discuss, tweet me at @farminvt.
I told myself I wasn’t going to do another clip of Davante Adams. I wasn’t. “He’s going to be overdone”, I said. “He’ll have plenty of other opportunities this season, don’t go back to back with highlights of him”. Well here we are, yet again spotlighting Adams for his magnificent play in week 2 of the 2018 preseason. Adams has gotten off to even faster starts than Justify coming out of the gates, or me when I hear “burgers are done”. Adams played only 7 snaps in the second preseason game but he left his mark in a hurry:
Off & running! @AaronRodgers12 hits @tae15adams for 27 yards!#PITvsGB #GoPackGo pic.twitter.com/CRtxHXt3wB— Green Bay Packers (@packers) August 17, 2018
Ahh, so good. Can’t wait until these games actually start to matter. But then again, does anything really matter? Aren’t we all just a collection of molecules being hurled around space on a giant rock, trying to make the best of our limited existence before we meet the inevitable end?
Anyway, Adams wasn’t done putting his mark on the game once he came out though. With 12 minutes to go in the third quarter and the Packers on defense, Adams was showing off his pearly whites and fantastic head of hair in a sideline interview. Let’s take a look (recommended sound on):
Did you see that smile? A smile that could shine through a black hole - a smile that could light up the state of Wisconsin for a year. Colgate and Head & Shoulders should give this guy a marketing deal yesterday. Let’s go through this interview step by step.
It starts off pretty inconspicuously, with Adams brushing his hair aside as he listens to reporter Lance Allan’s questions.
Immediately afterwards is where Adams’ real skill shows through. Yeah, he’s pretty good at running routes, making contested catches, getting yards after the catch, yadda yadda. Look at the eyes here; not only is he smoothly answering some of the most hard-hitting, ‘gotcha’ type questions ever asked by man, he is also taking notes on the Steelers second unit offense in case he wants to ever change positions to DB. I mean, this is a man locked in to his target:
Adams then flashes his pythons and looks directly at the camera - he knows what America wants, and he’s giving it to them. More Davante, less everything else.
Here’s the interview in slow motion for all the extra goodness:
Oh, I guess Josh Jackson made a pretty nice play in the background too. It’s hard to see as there’s an incredibly suave, talented, superstar in the way, but if you look closely you’ll find it.
That’s it for this week - remember to enjoy yourself, and as always, stay weird.
