Re: Steeler's most indispensable player?
Obviously, Ben and Troy are our most indispensable players long term, but Faneca is the most indispensable for this coming season. If Ben got hurt in training camp (God forbid), Batch could still lead us to the playoffs. Likewise, our defense can still be a force even without Troy. Our O line is already suspect, so losing Faneca for the season would do the most damage to the team in 07. We have some young O linemen that are ready to step up and start (at least we're hoping they're ready), but without the vet leadership of Faneca, our O line (and therefor our entire offense) is totally screwed.
