Who's indispensable in the NFC South?

By Pat Yasinskas

A bit later this week, we’re going to do a project where all eight NFL bloggers pick the most indispensable players in our divisions.

Quarterbacks are off limits because it sort of goes without saying any team that loses a starting quarterback would feel the hit. We’re looking at other players and the criteria I went by was something like, “Which player would this team miss most if he went down in Week 1 with a season-ending or very lengthy injury?’’

I’ve already made up my mind on which four guys I’m going with. I can’t share them now, but you’ll see them Thursday. I think two of them are very obvious. The other two are at least debatable.

But I wanted to throw this open to you to get your thoughts, either in the comments section below or in the mailbag. Heck, you might even be able to convince me to make a change or two.
