I'm not sure any team today has a truly "indespensible" player. Maybe Patrick Willis or JJ Watt?

I'd say the player I'd hate to lose the most is probably Jordan, but he's hardly indespensible.
For the Jets, it was Revis - Jets D wasn't the same whilst he was injured...

Chiefs weren't the same when Jared Allen left, and I'm not sure the Vikings are that good a team without Allen to whom he was traded...

Definitely Patrick Willis for the 49ers, though Navorro Bowman is making a name for himself...

Packers defense would definitely take a hit without Clay Matthews...

Not sure the Bills defense, which wasn't all that bad when the offense wasn't turning the ball over in the red zone, will be that good with Nick Barnett whose now a FA...

Ray Lewis is overrated - I said it; he's one of the best LBers, but he wasn't what really made that D go; Haloti Ngata was the man and when he was injured this year, it showed...

And the Lions defense isn't as, well, nasty without Ndamukong Suh manning the interior; even though their secondary has been no better/worse than ours...

And the Rams aren't the same defense without James Laurinaitis...

We haven't had THAT GUY - maybe one emerges from the acquisitions...

Right! It could be Vaccaro. It could be Vilma.........but I'm not sure he'll play as many downs as the other two.

Any one of the starting 3 defensive lineman, Jordan/Bunkley/Hicks. At this point I would assume Johnson/Jenkins/Coleman are the backups, and I think they're all well suited for rotational roles but not sure any of them could be counted on as a long-term starter.
