Mike Adams Looked 'Awful' In Steelers Debut

Pittsburgh Steelers fans got their first real look at the 2012 squad in Thursday's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. A game-winning field goal by Philadelphia had many Pittsburgh fans feeling underwhelmed by the team. Second-round draft pick and rookie Mike Adams did not receive high marks from those with discerning eyes.

Neal Coolong from Behind the Steel Curtain broke down the loss and did not have favorable things to say about Adams.

Simply put, Adams looked awful, surrendering 2.5 sacks over a nine-play stretch in which the only real value he provided was the recovery of the two fumble[s] his assignment caused. He left the game with a knee injury, and to be fair, LT Trai Essex didn't look much better, as Philadelphia showed they apparently have Lawrence Taylor, Deacon Jones and Reggie White playing behind their starting defensive ends.

There is still plenty of time before the season for the Steelers to address issues with their offensive line. Adams could still end up being a valuable player for Pittsburgh.
