I think we miss Jahvid Best and Louis Delmas more than we know.

With Delmas in the game, our pass rush is so much better. I cant explain it, but it is.

With Best in the game, safeties move up on him because he's one if the best in the game in space.

Those two players back healthy could save this team.

I think you should get over it. Those two players are injury prone, and cannot be factored into our success.

It was a general statement of how much they mean to this team when they are on the field.

Yep, both are talented enough to be centerpieces of the franchise, but if you're going to do that, you've gotta be able to stay healthy. Best and Delmas just can't do that like Calvin or Suh can, or even less-talented guys like Backus or Raiola.

I agree big time. We miss the speed Best had in the backfield, even from the screen pass. He was capable of going yard anytime he had the ball in space and we don't quite have that player on the roster now that he's gone.

For every time a screen to Best went yard there were ten times we ended up with 2nd and 10 or 11.

Yup. The video of him vomiting after the concussion in college still upsets me.

That was one severe concussion.

First, let me make this perfectly clear. Jahvid Best is not Barry. Barry is the greatest ever, but he was not a man without his faults.

Just saying you gotta take the good with the bad. The bad is there, but the game changing ability is also there.

Jahvid has way way way more bad than good, while Barry had way way way more good than bad. Terrible comparison imo.
