Is it just me or is the defense playing better since he's been starting? His aggression and athleticism seems to be making the guys around him less concerned about who's on the field with them. But in two starts, he can be credited with two early impact plays that defined the momentum for the rest of the game.

His INT in Buffalo gave us the lead they never got back.
His sack and forced fumble sent the Rams game spiraling out of control.

Let's ask the tough question... would some games have turned out differently if he were in?

I immediately think of the Chargers game where Eric Smith stumbled over his own feet and allowed an easy touchdown.

Elam has been playing great!! One of my favorite players. I read an article a few weeks back (before the 92 yard Int) that Mangini had a real problem with his "football speed".

Now, I saw him EXPLODE on that strip sack...looked like he had football speed on that play. How he is in "space" (or coverage") must be Mangini's concern.

All I know is that this kid is a football player!!


And Amen how about an Eric Barton appreciation thread...the guy is having a very good year...and plays with passion and intensity every game!!

This man is a mad man when it comes to blitzing. With Elam starting we have 2 threats at safety that can get after the QB. Eric Smith looks none explosive when he blitzes, Elam has no fear at all and just does his thing. Without a doubt Elam is a better "football player" than Smith.

I hope Elam is starting the rest of the year, I'm not sure if hes the long term solution yet. But he may very well be the long term solution, and he has played very well the last 2 games. With him being able to attack QBs we can have Rhodes play more of a ball hawk position, Rhodes had a hell of a game yesterday also with almost 2 INT, he dropped 1. But he also had a nice dive PBU that resulted in Poteat getting the INT in the endzone.

This Jets defense is playing good right now, I hope they can continue the momentum and take out the Pats! This is the biggest game of the season, whoever wins this is on the driver seat to winning the AFC East. I'm definitely skipping out of my class early to watch the game!

I also like the timeing of Rhodes and Elam. When we would bring Smith from the safety blitz, he would always be late getting to the QB. Rhodes and Elam have this timing on thier blitz's....Elam faked the blitz, and still got back to the QB and killed him.....

the first time i saw him play.. i knew he was special, i even put him as starter on my Madden roster as soon as he became a jets.. it's his aggressive style that makes the rest of the jets more roughty

I agree. Props for Elam!!, we all knew this guy had skills over Eric Smith and finally we get to see it. Parcells tipped Mangini off on Elam. He's a good safety and has made huge plays in back to back weeks.

I like that he's making the most of his opportunity and it's hard to pick on the guy BUT he does look slow. I thought he was just big, but he's 210lbs. He looks explosive and is probably good making a play within 10 yards but I don't think he has coverage speed.

We could create an ellaborate plan where we switch Brett Favre for Abram Elam. He just might have to play a lil QB and people will think he got like, mad sun...

There's been so many games(not just this season but last season too especilly w/ that one Pats game) when E. Smith has had coverage in the end zone, falls on his ass, and the ball goes over his head for a TD. I'm glad Elam is playing.

Because Mangini is finally putting his best players out there rather than the ones who watch the most game film. Oh, and because Kerry Rhodes pushed Anquan Boldin into him haha.
