There isnt anyone to replace him exactly, but what if you could get 75% of revis' production for 30% of the cost, while increasing the production of 3 other positions all for the same net cost?
That is why the only people who should care about trading away "our best player" should be 12 years old and younger. Sure its great to have the best CB in the game, but if that player is going to ultimately (and it will be slow and tough to see) sabotage the team by not allowing for a smart and balanced use of funds throughout the roster, then he should be traded in order to increase the teams chances of winning.
Yeah, I was really talking about a 1 for 1 replacement. I agree with what you wrote, but I just wanted to simplify and limit the number of caveats for my overall point, which is a guy who is the single best at what he does in the world in an industry that pays millions for the best, and will not be the best for more than 5 more years is quite different than regular dudes.
