He had a second string offensive tackle in the second half today. Is he being double teamed? Does he have an injury we don't know about? Please tell me he's not done!

Being double and tripled team is almost as good as a sack because it gives the defense a man advantage but I don't think this is the case.

Abe is a speed rusher that use to out sprint the OL around the edge to get to the QB. When the OL over commits to protect the edge he swings inside. I think his problem is that he lost a step. The speed isn't there as much. It may be due to an injury (he's been listed with a bad toe) or it may be age.

I hate to say this, but I think he might be on the slide. Every great pass rusher is double/triple teamed and held and whatever else you want to name, but they still produce, but he has just disappeared this year. It's like if he can't get sacks, he just gives up.

THANK YOU! People can make all the excuses they want to reassure themselves, but Abe isn't getting it done. He isn't getting ANY help at all either.

As someone said earlier, he's aging, and his contract isn't going to be renewed, so I wouldn't be shocked if he's gone after the season. Wonder if the Raiders would trade us Richard Seymour for him? lol.

We need to get some more Biermann's on this team. Sidbury might be that guy in years to come. If not, we need to find one or two in the draft.

We're just not getting any pressure on the QB. Babineux had a second string guard last week and just went nuts on him.

True that. I guess if I was a coach in the NFL, I'd be in the mold of Rex Ryan defensively. Blitz people every down all day, and everybody you have if that's what it takes. Give up the big pass play if that's what it takes, but you make sure that QB isn't just sitting back there more than 2 seconds without somebody getting a glove on him. That laying back kills me.
