Default Kubiak on Adibi

He’s been flashing as a player. This game is funny. Sometimes these rookies, you know, they struggle and struggle and struggle and all of the sudden the light goes on. It sure looks like it’s trying to go on for him, so we’re expecting to see some good things out of him.”

(on if there is a problem with LB Xavier Adibi’s weight) “He’s light, but he’s healthy. But he’s still light. He feels good. He held up last week. You’d like to see him weigh a little bit more but you’re not at the point where you can stop and do that, so we’ll just let him go and let’s see how he does.”
I'm so happy that we are finally playing the linebacker with the most potential on our roster outside DeMeco. He had a tackle for loss last game. This guy is a playmaker, and he was good in coverage in college, so today's game against Dallas Clark should be a test. 223 is light for a LB but he needs to get game experience in his rookie season. Weight can be corrected in the offseason.

I was at last weeks game and got a couple good look-sees at Adibi and he
certainly is smallish, really "thin" for a LB. You'd swear you were looking at a
safety. I dunno, if he could just get north of 230 (and stay above that floor),
that would help.

The thing you worry about if he picks up significant weight, and he will need significant additional weight, is if he can maintain his speed and agility.

The thing I noticed about him was his exceptional quickness & that he wasn't afraid to get in there & mix it up. However, he did look completely lost out there. I guess his body can keep up with the speed of the NFL, but his head isn't quite there yet.

I think his playing weight at Va Tech was in the mid 230's (everything I can find from the draft lists 236). The reason he's down 10-12 lbs. from that is due to illness, so getting back up to where he was shouldn't impact the speed and quickness he showed as a collegiate at all.

It's hard to pack on weight during the season. The guys can't get into the weightroom as much as they can during the off-season.

I would expect that during the off-season he will be able to get that weight back on.

He looks good out there today. That injury looked like a little cramp. He didn't miss many plays.

Good coverage in that first half. He almost broke up a pass when covering Dallas Clark. 5 tackles in that first half for Adibi.

I disagree, he has been getting beat on coverage, easily block, and missing some tackle in the backfield. He doesn't look all too good... he just looks like a rookie. Kubiak was right when he said he wasn't ready yet... hopefully he starts clicking towards the end of the season.

I guess we can agree to disagree. I thought he looked promising for a rookie in his 2nd or 3rd game with significant playing time. Good game by Adibi, finished with 13 tackles. He wore down at the end of the game but hey, it's very early in his career.

He certainly showed up more than Morlon does I think. Seemed like he was just close to making some plays a few times but came up just short. For the most part the defense sucked though so maybe im being unfair to Morlon.

Not saying he's not showing promise at WLB, just saying he's playing like a rookie LB.. making alot of mistakes. I still have hope for him as our future WLB.

True, mistakes were expected though. Just look at what Kubiak said at the end of Friday's practice in my original post.

Adibi made some strides today, and I would like to continue to see him on the field for the remainder of the season. That way we can iron out alot of these mistakes before he starts playing games that actually count, because this season is over as far as W-L mattering.

He got taken advantage of on pass plays and missed several tackles in the backfield that could have changed the game. Still, the fact he was around the ball in the backfield is more than Greenwood ever did.

Guys, it was his first time ever starting a game in the NFL, and he did it against Peyton Manning and the Colts. He played good all things considered. At least I noticed him around the ball trying to make plays, which I never see Greenwood do.

That's the truth, he was at least in position a couple of times. Greenwood shouldn't play again this year unless to spell Adibi.

Gotta agree with you there. I noticed Zac Diles around the ball a lot too, before he got hurt.

The main difference between Adibi and Greenwood?

I actually witnessed Adibi on the t.v. screen, making a tackle even. Greenwood's tactic of lining up and then finding manholes in the field is funny and all, but a real football player was cool to see.

I'm with the Joker though, interested in seeing what he could bring to safety. Great size/tackling, good speed/coverage...
