    Randy Moss may be the most impactful player besides Brady, but he's not the most indispensible, IMO. That's Adalius or Wilfork in my book, and I chose Adalius - not only for his performance, but for the ripple effect he has on other players (most specifically, Vrabel) and for the fact that the rest of the impact LBs are old.

    I love Moss, but we'd find a way with Welker and Stallworth and Gaffney and Washington to put points on the board. Maybe not 38 every week, but this would still be a potent offense.

    Thomas, Vrabel, or Colvin. Any injury to the linebacking corps hurts alot because there isn't alot of depth. The Bruschi/Seau rotation works well, but do we really want to see Eric Alexander or Chad Brown starting games?

    Warren is number 4 for me, and Wilfork number 5. After that, Moss.

    Wilfork or maybe AD.

    As I've said in other threads, when the NT is mediocre, BB's defense doesn't work.

    we cant afford to LOSE AD. He's making the difference and Id hate to see Vrabes move back inside.

    Wilfork

    I know BB mixes it up on D but you can't run 3-4 defense without a good nosetackle. Wilfork's absence would limit what BB can do with his 7 man front.

    Watch the push he gets up the middle on 3rd downs. O-lines crumble quickly with this guy's strength.

    I was really torn between Wilfork and AD.

    No votes for Vrabel? He plays every snap, is critical as a pash russer and in setting the edge, and his backup is the great Pierre Woods. I say that would be a huge loss indeed.

    Seconded, barely beating out Wilfork and AD. We don't really have a backup, Koppen makes all the line calls and without a good OL, good WR don't matter. But really thats unimportant compared to if we lost Brady - we'd loose and loose badly (;)) if Brady goes down.
