    Wouldn't have gotten Mangold, but, yeah, I miss Abe. STILL haven't replaced his pass rush. Pathetic.

    How soon they forget, he was hurt all the time and wanted a big money deal. It was thew right thing to do and it netted us Mangold and helped build the oline. If that stiff Gholston had been what he was hoped this wouldn't have been as big of an issue. OLB / pass rusher is a massive need though tha tis for sure,

    Mangini was maybe the worst hire this organization has ever had outside of the Rich Kotite hire which was just the result of Leon Hess being old and scenile and hiring his buddy. Mangini trading away Abe killed us I don't care about Mangold I would take an elite pass rusher and decent Center over Mangold and JAG's who can't smell the QB any day of the week.

    When he's been healthy, he's been a beast.

    He is the active NFL leader in sacks and has a ton of force fumbles. Imagine how many more sacks he'd have if he were healthy most of his career. And even with all those missed games, he's probably going to finish top 10 all time in sacks.

    He was hurt alot but he was still insanely productive even back then. What happened was the NFL had just changed the pass interference rules and made them much more strict and enforced which made it almost impossible for DB's to do their job - hence the pass rusher becoming the most important commodity in the NFL after QB.


    Tanny and probably more importantly Mangina-mouth did not comprehend this by Spring 2006 so they traded Abe as soon as they could after he started talking contract. Mangina didn't perceive Abe as his type of player. F'n idiot.

    John Abraham wore out his welcome with fans and coaches. He was always getting hurt and often didnt play as hard or through pain. It seemed like he didnt care. It was the right move at the time

    another wrong decision by the brain trust of the new york jets organization. we havent had a decent pass rush since his departure.

    He quit on us. Sat out in 2004. Oft-injured.

    He sat out two playoff games, one win and one loss, and nobody will ever know how hurt he was except for Abe, Herm and whoever the doctor was.


    Strahan acted like a miserable punk throwing Tom Coughlin under the bus repeatedly yet the Giants brought him back and all it got them was a lousy Super Bowl Win. That's why the Giants are the Yankees and the Jets aren't even the Mets.

    Bull****. Vilma, who saw Abraham trying to practice, said Abraham's knee was too messed up for him to play.

    This is just another bull**** media creation that caught steam for whatever reason.

    Mr. October? Don't think keeping him was realistic at the time. Forget why aside from he didn't want to be here.


    Guy was a one of kind talent that doesn't come around often for sure. Sucks he had to go but don't think he was staying anyway.

    GOOGLE and read about James Farrior....How we let him walk.

    he became GREATbthe minute he steps away from the JETS.

    In all fairness farrior sucked balls for 3 years and then beasted in his contract year...Abraham has always been good when healthy.

    This is why consistency is key in the NFL....and one of the reasons I am against firing Ryan next season. Changing coaches most often results in changing schemes, and changing schemes means getting rid of players who no longer fit the scheme, even if they are productive...add Vilma to the list as well
