Gamble is one of our most inconsistent players if you look at his career....season to season he is almost a different guy. We did just fine without him.
Gamble not participating in our run at the end of the season doesn't mean we're better without him. I would consider losing him to be major loss. Nakamura is terrible and it's no big deal to lose him. Edwards is decent but aging, so again not too big of a deal losing him.
We don't at this point know who will be cut (of course), but we're going to lose talent off of a team that really doesn't have much to spare.
Winning a lot with backups and no names? I mean the run we went on was due in large part because we played several terrible teams close together. Cam Newton can drag this team past the lesser teams in the NFL, but having a winning season is a different matter. Of course I want guys who play big in big situations, but I'm really worried about the overall taent level of this team. And when the cuts come the talet level with drop even lower. Now I certainly hope our newer players can step up and toe the line, but I'm very concerned.
The Atl Falcons played a lot of terrible teams....it is the NFL....you normally make the postseason if you beat all the "bad" teams on your schedule and find a way to win 2 against good teams
