again, you cannot simply sum up Hicks’ value by looking at his stat sheet.
he plays with energy and passion that raises the intensity of the entire defensive line. this is what i mean by categorically false. unless somebody else brings the intensity Hicks plays with he can truly be replaced.
View the Chicago Bears player penalty statistics and stats. See the most penalized and least penalized players in the NFL.
Yeah he was so high energy that he had dumb penalties in critical situations. He had 8 penalties and the next highest guy on the DL was 2. He is simply not the same player. I get your point and it was true of Hicks a few years ago. He is simply not that guy anymore IMO.
