‘We’re Never Out of It’


Adams reflected postgame on Smith’s resiliency and the defense’s ability to come up big.

“Just grit,” said Adams. “Perseverance, and obviously just to finish. That’s what we preach over here man. We’re never out of it until the last inning is done, once that time clicks off that’s the end of the game. But, as long as we have time on the clock, we’re going to fight. We’re going to fight until the end.”

In Adams’ first full game of the year against the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle fell short despite the defense held their AFC opponent to three points in the second half. The Seahawks have won two straight since, and have allowed a total of nine second-half points in their last four games.

Love praised Adams for his headbutt assist in his first interception as a Seahawk, comparing him to international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He was like a prime Ronaldo right there,” said Love. “That play is all credit to Mal. The way he plays, the passion, the energy, the physicality. If he’s not pressuring the way he is, that play never happens and who knows what happens at the end of the game. So, thanks Jamal Adams.”

As the seventh-year safety continues to get comfortable on the field again after dealing with injuries, he leads a hungry Seattle defense that continues to find a way to make big plays when the team needs it most.
