They just love to blow this stuff out of proportion dont they?
Key veteran departures: LB Kendrell Bell; WR Plaxico Burress; DT Kendrick Clancy; TE Jay Riemersma; OT Oliver Ross; CB Chad Scott; OG Keydrick Vincent.
Bell= injury prone, hasnt played much at all for us and we've been fine
Burress, wines too much and too inconsistent but he was a good deterrant to keep double teams off ward. Wilson's speed will help w/ that now
Clancy= role player, will miss the depth, thats all
Reimersma= good TE, but not like we didnt have success w/ Tuman and company,we'll be ok here too.
Ross = will miss him from a depth standpoint, and he was a good LT, but Starks should be ready.
Scott = hurt most of last year, and always got burnt anyways. He was a decent veteran leader but certainly not irreplaceable.
Vincent.. again will miss him from the depth standpoint. he filled in great last year for simmons, but kendall is healthy and ready to go.
These FA's are NOT that big of a deal. they really arent.
