Someone pull out the highlights of the absolute beating Matty Ryan took at the hands of CJ and Hardy.

you know i tried to find that and i wasn't able to find a video. a panthers pass rush vs. falcons highlight video would be awesome.

anyway, i'll be the first to admit that osi bookending abraham would have been a respectable if aging combination. osi is going to have kroy biermann opposite him now so he's going to have to beat a double team on every snap. alternately if you watch the video of the sack you can see justin tuck clearly drawing the double team which frees up osi to slip past gross.

the problem here is that the falcons aren't able to make a play for a blue chip pass rusher who could start at a high level immediately. so now, faced with the fact that they have zero depth at DE, they had to bring in a guy who would do the most damage as a situational pass rusher at this stage in his career and force him to be a three down DE. they might seriously have the fewest sacks in the league next season.

it seems like he put up weak numbers but he was mostly a rotational guy last season and split time with tuck and pierre-paul. he would have been a really great signing if the falcons had a strong rotation established but the issue is that they're going to be asking a lot more of him than that.

I was reading the Giants blogs after the Chase signing, and many posters said they were sadder to see Chase leave than Osi. One guy said, "Atlanta just threw in the towel on run defense...", referring to Osi's one dimensional play.

i don't know. i guess pointing out facts is just being bitter and jealous or whatever.

we have the best front 7 in the division and it's not close. we don't need to hope for a 12 sack season out of osi umenyiora to have anything resembling a pass rush.

Good signing for the Falcons. Doesn't really change a whole lot though. Osi is a year older and he'll be playing with a bunch of average dlinemen, don't really seeing him making a huge impact

Not worried at all, I just would rather him not be there is all. Btw, 1 of his 6 sacks last year was on Cam.
