Colin Paisley of ESPN 710 Seattle posed an interesting question during our hour-long conversation previewing the Seattle Seahawks upcoming training camp, which you can listen to here.
With the recent incident of Marshawn Lynch’s DUI charge calling his availability for the season opener in Arizona into question, Paisley wanted to know who the most irreplaceable Seahawk player is.
It’s hard to argue against Lynch because of the way he ignited the running game in the second half of 2011. But what about someone like defensive end Red Bryant and how important he is to Seattle’s ability to stuff the run?
Paisley argued for Chris Clemons because the Seahawks have no other proven edge rusher. But in my opinion, Earl Thomas is the best player on the team, and allows the front seven to be more creative because of his ability to control things on the back end.
So who is Seattle’s most irreplaceable player? Vote in our poll below, and share your thoughts in the comments section.
