Default Top 10 most indespensable players

I disagree with #7 the most. They'd be better without him. Also disagree with #5, they could still win 10 games without him.

The Falcons look like one of those boom or bust teams right now. I guess the other mediocre teams in their division make them look better than they really are, but if they fall to 5-11 or something like that, it likely wouldn't matter who is playing QB at that point. The team in general doesn't look very good and that includes Vick.

Vick is an athlete playing QB. He isn't a QB playing QB. He needs to make plays with his legs because he can't make them with his arm. if the passes were more accurate then his WR's might be able to catch.

Brees threw for over 4k yards to a bunch of unknowns.

I don't get how our defense is starting to decline when our oldest players are mike minter and mike rucker, we've got two replacements for Rucker, one of the youngest LB corps in the NFL and a young trio of excellent cornerbacks.

Our defense is just beginning to hit its stride.

It's still ridiculous to say that Joey Harrington would make the Falcons better than Michael Vick.

In the six years since Vick has come into the league, what's their W/L record when he's been sidelined?


Not trying to sound like a homer, but I'm a bit surprised Vince Young isn't on this list.

Peyton may be the best QB in football, but I don't think he's necessarily the most valuable. With all of the weapons the Colts have on that offense I think Jim Sorgi would fare better than Michael Bennett or Matt Cassell would on their respective teams. I think it's fine that LJ is #1 on that list. The Chiefs have very little in terms of a passing game. Even if Dwayne Bowe develops quickly, you still have a very unexperienced QB in Brodie Croyle and no other reliable receivers. Michael Bennett isn't anything close to a starting caliber back. And he's proven that. If the Chiefs lose LJ, say hello to a top 3-5 pick in the draft. I think if the Pats lost Brady or the Colts lost Manning they could still compete for their respective divisions.

The fact that Manning is even on the list is ridiculous. Sorgi is the greatest QB to ever touch a football, the Colts just use Manning so some games are fair. You wanna talk about a team that would be better without their starting QB, it's the Colts, not the Falcons.

They have a poll for most indispensible for each team, though the results are as if people just chose the most recognizable name on the list.

I get the Michael Turner philosophy, but seriously. Who is Chudiha fooling?

Gates is big, and one of the key cogs of our passing attack, but he's not LT.

Manning #3? Seriously? And behind the guy who got famous by riding his defense? I don't value this writer's opinion at all.

The NFC South is not mediocre. The Saints look to be Super Bowl contenders, the Panthers were a Super Bowl favorite and have a ton of potential, the Falcons are boom or bust, and the Bucs are going from old to young fast.

And saying the Falcons would be better off without Vick is ignorant.
