Old school/new school/whatever...he has been a part of making sure other teams don't run consistently. Wilson is the more valuable overall than any LB on the squad, but Pratt is the next. ADG isn't in the equation, I agree. I guess this constant "let (anybody) walk" is overused and not evaluative. Players do get changed out all of the time, but if one goes back to the draft for replacing--when it is not necessary to do so unless an immediate upgrade in skills is there--the new guy will take time to develop into what you already have. Never have understood this approach. It's a simple matter of evaluating resources and costs and the value. Some talented guys are going to have to move on not because we don't want them to stay or they don't want to, but because you can't afford to pay everyone under a salary cap. Bates is pricing himself out, Pratt may very well just be left out because we can't afford to keep him and Wilson. It's not personal. I like Pratt, I hope he stays and learns ro be a better in the moment teammate. But if not I wish him well except when he plays us. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
