Because our first selfish defensive end wasn't enough. Now we need another.

Osi is a shell of the former player. The guy I want hasn't even been mentioned all offseason, but he will be in my comprehensive offseason mock tomorrow, or when I sober up.
Victor Butler?

Unfortunately, most really good pass rushing DE's are divas now. Although Osi had a down year (6 sacks), he can still provide the pass rush we need and the guy has big game experience. And the big thing is he actually produces in the playoffs. That is something Abe didn't do.

I don't want it to sound like I'm hating on the guy. If he came for the right price I would love to have him. But I won't downplay the fact that he always seems to stir something up. It would be cool to see both our ends 71 and 72.

Abe and the defense played well vs NY a couple of years ago. It was Ryan and the offense who didnt show up. GB was just better than were. And the man was on ONE leg last season, thanks to Coach Smith Mad

I really want to see Osi and Abe signed. I don't like the DE's who will be available for the Falcons in the draft very much. Draft a NT, CB, and LB early and get after it.

Well Abe hasn't made any impact plays in the playoffs like Osi has. But I'd like to see us get him or a vet DE and draft a DE in with our top pick. I think the combo of young and older will be an upgrade than what we had last year.

We need pass rush. For the right price (and team friendly) sign the man up. If not him, Freeney... Abe... someone else.....
