His production can be replaced. Thinking otherwise is just pitiful. 1,008 yards? Give me a break I'd bet the farm that either Brown or Funchess will wind up with that type of yardage. Between Funchess and Olsen KB's touchdowns can be replicated. What will be missed is the attention he would receive. It's an important loss but not a season killer. Smitty was cut, people groaned about how this team didn't have a #1 receiver and then Benjamin had a solid rookie year. Now KB is gone for a year and people freak out again.
I'm referring to how many people just refer to him as someone who needs more seasoning, experience, etc...blah blah blah. He has the size that KB has (maybe not the weight, but has the height and vert), and has more seasoning and route ability than KB had coming out of college. I wouldn't be surprised if he eclipses 1,000 and double digit TDs.
