Just because you have guys that could do what another guy has done so far doesn't mean you should replace said player. Merciless could have given us the production Connor Barwin has given us so far...Do you think he should be replaced right now?
First, I don't think that Mercilus can give us or do what Connor Barwin has. I don't think Ben Tate is as good as Arian Foster. If they were better, then I'd want them playing instead of those guys.

I think Danieal Manning is a better kick returner than Trindon Holliday. I think Justin Forsett is a better kick returner than Trindon Holliday. I think Shiloh Keo could give us what Trindon Holliday has given us AND allow us to keep another player on the 53 who could help us depth and development wise.

Comparing Trindon -- a guy who has done absolutely zilch in the regular season so far -- to Arian Foster, Ben Tate, or Connor Barwin is kinda ridiculous. That's like comparing Alan Ball to Johnathon Joseph.

I think Trindon's preseason production has you guys mesmerized.
