Who Else Misses This?

Yeah i miss Abe too! I just could not believe it when they released him. Our defense has been terrible since he left. Hopefully they will let him sign a 1-day contract to retire a Falcon. Last I heard was he had some serious health issues with his head and missed most of last season but he deserves to be in the falcon ring of honor.

Even if we find another Abe, we still need to find a compliment to him. We never could find Abe's compliment.

There was once a time when we had Patrick Kearney on one side and Brady Smith on the other but I don't think Quinn's defense is neccesarily geared to have one or two stud pass rushers. From what I've seen of Seatlle, it's a collective effort and comes from more than just one or two guys. Not that having the big time guys would be bad but I just don't think that's how he operates.

Actually if I'm not mistaken, Abraham was brought in to be Kerney's compliment, Kerney's got hurt before the season started, we let him go to Seattle the next year and he produced 12 sacks for them...so sad

I would have loved to see Kerney and Abe together, even if for just one season.

I think you're right but before that we did have Brady Smith who we also lost to injury. Of all things a bad toe, IIRC He might even have retired because of it. It was pretty severe for a toe..

Abe is my all time favorite Falcon edge rusher. Yep. Even over Claude and Chuck.

Just a down right as beater. Speed, power, swim, rip, bull, spin, forklift, you name it.

McKay built a Dline with him, Coleman, Kerney and Grady. With Babineaux and Chauncey in reserve. Dimi will never beat that.

Him getting Troffed was one of the biggest Falcon travesties I've ever seen. Shame, shame, shame. Never forget you bro.
