10 Irreplaceable Players

Football Outsiders produced a list of the 10 most Irreplaceable Players for ESPN Insider.  It is based not only on how good the player is, but how big the drop in quality is to their backups.  Peyton Manning tops the list, but I wouldn't post this unless there was a player of interest to us, so:

4. Roddy White, WR, Falcons

Although Larry Fitzgerald laid his claim to the title of best wide receiver in football during the playoffs, no wideout played a bigger part in his team's success than White. Matt Ryan threw 32.5 percent of his passes in 2008 to White, the highest such percentage for any receiver in football. (Carolina's Steve Smith was second, at 29.5 percent.) The Falcons added Tony Gonzalez to help ease White's load in 2009, but it's not as if Gonzalez made the Kansas City offense go last year. If the Falcons lost White, the effects on their offense would be catastrophic.

Just in case we needed a reminder that Dimitroff needs to work out the details of that contract extension ASAP.
