    Really-I think you guys will be fine.

    If you ask me, Moss would be a BIGGER loss than Brady.

    Pt being that it seems like with the better teams in the league, there's been many times where they've lost their QB, and they didn't miss a beat. It's when they lose their WR/RB...that's where they get into trouble.

    It was alot during the Aikman years here in Dallas. When Troy would go down, we wouldn't lose a beat as our capable vets who knew the system came in. However-it was when Emmitt/Irvin went down where the impact would be BIG. Why? B/c without Emmitt, the run game was shot. Without Irvin, whoever was QB, there was no safety valve.

    Pt being that the BIG weapons are your RBs and WRs. They can make capable QBs look better than they are. Look at Tony Romo in Dallas. A very good QB, yes. But when you have TWO safety valves in TO and Witten, it's only going to make your job that much easier.

    Nice to see but it's about as meaningless as a #17 ranking. There should be some sort of accuracy test for these things so that the poor unsuspecting readers understand that they're less reliable than astrological forecasts.

    Interesting thought! One thing that ran through my mind on Sunday was Rodney's injury and how devastating it was at that time (he was full tilt back then), and how impossible it was to replace him.I'm not comparing that to Brady or even Moss as you suggest, but yes, you could definitely argue that losing Moss would be ... nasty. I remember when we lost Corey Dillon-or at least the 04 Dillon anyway-it took us a couple of years to find someone like him, and his decline/injuries hurt us badly. Good post Tuna :)
