Question: It seems like Anthony Adams' helmet is always coming off in the middle of plays. What's up with that? Does he knock it off on purpose?

Answer: Ha! That's a great question because it's bugged me, too. If there's a loose helmet on the field, it's a safe bet it belongs to Adams. I'd love to take credit for finding this answer, but it was the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Matt Maiocco who came up with it. Apparently, Adams is a huge sweater. He perspires so much that by the second quarter the inside of his helmet becomes slicker than a jar of Vaseline. He makes contact with an opponent and - POP! - the helmet comes flying off.
