Lol @ People Who Did Not Want Us To Resign Abe


Recommended Posts

Not sure if serious?

You do realize how big of a hole would be on our D line if we did not resign him? Who is going to generate pressure? Granted, Nolan can probably work some magic, but you can't just go into the season blindly hoping that Nolan will be able to all of the sudden get production from guys who have not produced that well.

So what if he is 34 years old? You do realize that pass rushing specialist can be very effective well into their later years? We monitored his snaps last year and we will monitor them this year. He is not going to wear down.

I understand the people not wanting to resign him for 10m+ a year because I think that is too much, but for those not wanting him because they question his skills then urine idiot.

Pass Rushers with his skillset are not that easy to find. If you have one you keep him. You can never have too many guys who can get after the QB. Look at the Giants/Eagles D lines. Every guy they have can get after the QB

I just want him to show up more in big games. I cannot deny his impact, though. If he left, then that would have been . . . . . ..

With this being said, I am glad we re-signed him. We need him. We need the 2010 Abe, though. The one who sacked Brees and batted his ball in the air and intercepted it.

Its simply a matter of us needing him. I just wish we already had his replacement on the roster.....oh well. Yet another year of band aids and super glue for our primary pass rush threat.

I just want consistency, I must say I do feel a little against it because Sid and Biermann may not get the PT they deserve, but the fact that Abe has played both OLB and DE he is in good use of Coach Nolan's Hybrid.

Well I am fine with band aids and superglue if Abe can get 9.5 sacks again this year. And I'm not worried about Sid and Biermanns PT this year. Abe is a year older so he will continue to have limited snaps. Sidbury hasn't really proven enough for the praise that people give him. I too want him to have more snaps, but lets not get carried away, if he was THAT good then they would find a way to get him on the field. Atleast on the field more than Biermann.

I don't have a problem with resigning him , I just want him to come and play against good teams not just against Jax or teams of that caliber and it's not like he's dependable ( ouch my groin hurts ) I can't play today ....give me 10 mill for this season

I understand the logic of letting him go. He's on the downslide of his career. He could easily crash. We shouldn't expect double digit sacks by the end of this contract. But it is a good opportunity to give more reps to Sidbury and Biermann and find out if these are the guys of the future, and still have a dominant pass-rusher like Abe in the rotation.

Signing a Mario Williams, or other top DE, might have stalled the production of Sid, Biermann, and Matthews. So I can see why keeping him is the logical choice. I'm just glad we still have an elite pass-rusher for another year, and Abe retires a Falcon. I'm cool with it. Now TD needs to find us a LT.

Oh i agree highly i want him to resign asap. The re-signing today seems like it is going to stick having around a 34 year old who already has knees and groin issues and misses out in plays because of these issues at week 8.

Hes productive but i think this was more a desperate move more so then just wanting him back... If cthey could get a younger talented pass rusher abe would have been gone last year...

Just my opinion on it... Glad he is back, but we still need to look for his replqcement SOON!!!

Just being honest, I would rather have had Mincey. Younger, cheaper, etc. I do think Abe can be effective, but he doesn't play near as many snaps anymore and as said before, tends to disappear in big games. A good DE, but I think that even 8 mil a year is too much for him as old as he is.

Abe not showing up is more of a result of not having another pass rusher on the other side.

He will be the old Abe from days gone by. Knowing he' s wanted back I expect he and several other

players in his situation will be reincarnated into "punch in the mouth" players. Something we've needed of late.
