As I've stated previously that the era of SS is technically OVER. with a passing league the need for down in the box SS is no longer needed.
Disagree with this part of your post. teams are starting to shift back more balanced offences......
Green Bay and New England are the two teams that were leading the charge on spread offense in the NFL, now they've brought in and using big backs and multiple backs. even with Peyton Manning doing what he did, his game played a lot off of what knowshon moreno does.
MORE IMPORTANTLY. the NFCW is a run heavy physical division, and will continue to be. we all know about Lynch, Zac Stacy is emerging in STL, and ellington in zona looks like has some potential.
so we absolutely need a SS than can play in the box.
