    You would have released him in his rookie seasons for a few dropped passes !

    To be fair I remember a fair share of forum members thought we dropped the ball drafting him.

    Would be fun to read these posts, there were indeed numerous posters who wanted him to be cut.

    Regardless of what was said a few years ago, and there were a lot of critics, Davante Adams is a bonafide #1 receiver, and at this point I would put him in my top 5 of the NFL. No less than top 7.

    His footwork is impeccable.

    The Packers need to work on finding a couple of complimentary players this offseason to put around Davante to where defenses cannot just key on him. He was able to get open consistently last night, but I worry about what will happen if teams are able to effectively bracket him.

    Perhaps Graham and Jones will prove to be able to take the pressure off (and Graham had a few money catches last night), but moving forward, the Packers need better options.

    In Davante's rookie season, I loved him. I will admit in his second season, I did not think he had the ability to be a number 1 or even number 2 receiver. At the time that was a fair assessment. His catch percentage was hardly 50% and he only scored one touchdown all season. His numbers looked identical to that of MVS from this season. Then, Davante focused on improving. He spent overtime on the juggs machine, became more focused on getting better and in his third season he had 12 more TDs and almost 1,000 receiving yards. Since then, Adams has improved as a pass catcher, route runner and leader and is a legitimate #1 WR and IMO top 5 WR in the NFL.
    What did I learn from this? Players can improve if they want to put in the work. I will not write off MVS or other players that have a down year. I will pay attention to how they practice and handle the offseason though.

    This board wasn't the only one back then. It is great to see him develop into one of the top WRs in the game. He truly is the sole focal point of DBs on every team we face but somehow, someway Adams finds a way to get open and make big plays

    He has always been a slick receiver he did have a lot drops earlier in career but he was the fastest WR the Packers had and seems to get crazy open a lot, when Rodgers targets you a lot that’s big for any Packer receiver never ever thought he should have been cut

    it's a good thing or they'd start piling up. We have enough to deal with the way it is.

    They're like zombies. You need to keep killing them off or else they will eventually overrun the asylum.

    Adams was injured in year 2 and he wasnt in year 1 or 3, that's the only difference I remember.

    They are in the Rashan Gary thread tearing him to shreds.

    Just like they did to Adams, Nelson, N. Collins, Bakhtiari, Kenny Clark and even A. Rodgers his first few seasons.

    So, next year we can have a similar thread about R. Gary...can't wait!

    There wasn't a single poster suggesting to release Adams during his rookie season but several wanted him gone in his second year in the league.

    Adams being injured during his second season played a huge role in him struggling that year.

    I haven't seen a single poster thinking that way about Gary.

    I never thought we should cut Adams, but his sophomore year was rough. Everyone was happy with him as a rookie, but he really had a bad second year. I was not convinced Adams had a bright future at the time, but I'm glad to be proven wrong. Part of the issue, I think, was that Nelson was out all of 2015 and that pushed Adams into a bigger role that he should have been at that stage of his career.

    Adams being injured for most of his second season with the Packers was most likely the main reason for him struggling in 2015 though.

    Really, not one critic of Gary around here?...

    I could add several more examples.

    In fact, you have stated several times that the Packers would be better off had they drafted someone else. Kind of negative on Gary, no?

    You even responded to the Sanguine camper quote above, but, as you say you never saw it. [sarc]
