Which player would be a bigger lose to their respective team

Which player would be a bigger lose to their respective team

I was just sitting here thinking and this came to mind while i was looking at sports feuds..

With the hatred between the two players (Crabtree and Sherman) lets say they get in a fight on the field and both get thrown out of the game. Which player would be a bigger loss to their team.

I voted Crabtree. My reasoning is we saw the drop-off without him in the line-up. Part of that had to do with our lack of quality depth to make up for his absence, but a big part of it had to do with the fact that he is a baller. He's one of the most productive WRs in the game on a per pass play basis.

Sherman is very good at what he does, but I believe the Seahawks have created a system where the CB position is largely interchangeable. That's how they get a former CFL castoff like Brandon Browner, or another late-round pick like Byron Maxwell, to perform like shut-down corners from Day 1. It's a combination of their d-line rotation, safeties, and officials who are scared to throw the flag on every play, that allows their corners to perform like they do. I honestly think you can take Sherman out of the line-up with minimal drop-off.

I think we'd loss the game in the past when our receiving corps was relatively week. Now, I think the Hawks would loss.
you were supposed to have spelt it "core"....

Sherman, he is a shut down corner whether zoners want to admit it or not. Crabtree isn't even top 10 at his position.
neither really imo

but if i had to pick one, i'd say sherman

Crabtree is most certainly top ten. Before his achilles, once Kaep took over, he proved to be a top ten WR. Now that he's healthy again, he's going to be a difference maker. That said, Sherman is better at his position as he's elite. However, a CB is largely a result of the defense in front of them. I think WR is a more important position.

Exactly. Not so much a question of who is better at their respective position, but who is more difficult to replace on their respective team.

Yeah, Crabs, but it's close. The strength of that SEA defense, last season, was more so the D line depth, like you mentioned above. The strength of their secondary is Earl Thomas.

Last season, Crabs is easily the answer to this question. This season, with SJohnson and Lloyd on board, and a second year QP, a loss of Crabs wouldn't sting as badly imo. Losing Crabs still leaves the team with Boldin/SJ/Lloyd which is much better than Boldin/KWillams/Baldwin (ugh).

I'm thinking since we had to see what it was like last year it would be FAIR if Seattle see what it like this year with dick sherm and we will answer it next year at this time
