Dolphins most indispensable player

With all the injuries that we saw during week one and the injury to Sims, it got me thinking of who would be the one Dolphins player that if they went down would have the biggest impact on this season. Now of course the obvious answer would be Tannehill and for about 90% of teams if their QB went down their level of play would decrease dramatically. So this decision does not consider Tannehill.

It was really tempting to go with either Suh or Wake as they can dominate any game and are some of the best players at their respective positions. However I like the depth that we have on the defensive line and if lets say for example Wake were to go down, we would still have Suh, and vise versa. Don't get me wrong, I believe it would be a big hit but I believe in the depth enough to say that the level of play on the defensive line would still be respectable.

Saying all this, my vote would be Brent Grimes the man who got an interception last Sunday. He is a leader in the secondary and can match up and help take away a teams number one wide out. Grimes was a pro bowler last season and has already started the year off on a good note. You can rely on Grimes every week to play at a high level and with this pass happy league he will be a key contributor to the team's success this year.  If Grimes were to go down I am not too confident right now in the secondary, especially with Delmas already out.

One of the players I was really considering picking was Jarvis Landry. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite players on the team and he always seems to have one or two plays a game where he just out fights the defense and gains a couple of extra critical yards. I do believe that the depth we have at wide receiver is one of our strengths and we are still awaiting to see what DeVante Parker can do. However Landry brings in a spark to the team that does not go unnoticed, and even has the ability do be a special teams difference maker.

My pick may have been a surprise to some of you, so leave down in the comments who you guys believe is the Dolphins most indispensable player for this season. Here is to a healthy season where all these hypotheticals will not matter!

Tannehill is possibility since Matt Moore didn't look good in preseason.

Brandon Albert would require a lot of juggling and we saw what that brought last year so he is very important. Without him our offense boggs down.

Grimes is a great player. We would have to adjust our coverages and have to score more points without him to win.

I think those 3 are tough to replace right now if they went down. If I had to pick, which I hope I don't, I would say losing Albert would hurt the most since we saw what happened last year after he went down.

Off topic, Is Omar Kelly racist, stupid, ignorant, or all of the above, in his x and Omar video he said zach vigil outright sucked and insinuated he was getting time because he was white. How this failure still has a job is beyond me. I'm sure the team loves this psycho covering them.

Mike Pouncey - losing him would considerably weaken the offensive line by exposing both guards.

Tannehill would be my number one choice for sure. Pouncey or Albert going down would be a huge blow to our offense too. I held my breath when I saw Albert down on a play. And kelly I haven't seen the X and Omar video but I will have to check it out soon.

@ Kelly Skeels:

That is so funny about Omar Kelly. It mad me chuckle too. I know quite a bit about Zach Vigil being that he played the the Mountain West Conference which is the same conference as my Home town New Mexico Lobos. I stated in one of my earlier posts that Zach Vigil would be a starter someday base on my opinion and watching him in college and wouldn't you know It!? He may well be a starter this year! Hahahaha

I have some news for Omar Kelly, Zach Vigil is HISPANIC, not white. Would it be fair to call Omar Kelly "black" instead of Jamaican being that he is from Jamaica? I would think not. Omar Kelly is as ignorant as they come. Nice Comment Kelly Steels, I totally agree with you, maybe he is racist...

Omar Kelly is a sneaker headed self purveyor who can spot talent. Based on reading his feed, one could derive that he may be subject to the pitfalls of bias. Whatever. Everyone does that.
