wake. though diminished was all we have off the edge. James isn't a loss imo.. though im admittedly biased against him and think hes a finesse waste of money.Yes, they lost players. I'm not taking issue with that.
My arguement is that the players lost didn't have a huge effect on our w/l totals.
Taking your three examples, RT is the only one that coul possibly have a major impact, and that is only if Rosen and Fitzpatrick are trash.
DAs production from the slot can easily be replaced, and Wake, at this point in his carreer was a situational player at best, IMO.
All I'm saying is that the players we let go were hardly difference makers.
Some of them have a mathematical component, like the recent ESPN version. Once it's pure subjectivity I don't pay any attention.I really don't know why people care about power rankings. They are nothing more than opinions in list form.
Gore was productive. I wouldn't have minded keeping him for another season, but I understand the decision, and assuming we can coach our young backs up in pass pro, it is not a major blow.CamWake , Frank Gore, R Quinn, they were all productive.
Really when Gore went down we we're done. He was money and everyone else on offense was hit or miss. Also his play rested our defense and gave them a chance. Drake is a home run hitter but not a move the chains guy and Ballage is a big back who so far best talent is catching the ball out of the backfield. We need to find guys like a Gore or Laundry moving forward that will be dependable play in and play out and move the chains if we really are going to be winners.CamWake , Frank Gore, R Quinn, they were all productive.
