    by that logic, Pouncey was also not a huge difference maker...?? Ben still ended up getting hurt and we still went 8-8... so, we can let him go, too...

    obviously, that's not true, but, my point is that's a weak argument. dude, he came off the street... and STARTED... he may not have been a stud, but, apparently, the guy he replaced was BAD at that time and it wasn't even close (or you don't call Max; you just take your growning pains expecting him to be even or better by year's end).

    Simply put -- Each game, there are 22 guys (plus special teams) who each contribute in some way to each win.. his contribution made a difference. maybe not a super bowl difference, but, it made a difference. You're talking about taking an 8-8 team and making them weaker, by some degree...

    Let's hope the young guys have grown significantly in one year and are better than him, by a bigger degree....

    A weak argument? Like, "We could have been 6-10?"

    It's all conjecture...
