I've seen multiple threads regarding Cruz and his contract situation. Many folks throughout those threads express their desire to keep Will Beatty around, some even saying he's more important to the team than Cruz.
A stud LT is very valuable to a team, but I'm wondering why is there so much love for Beatty? I didn't pay much attention to him individually, but as a whole, the OL has been subpar for 2+years now. We get no push in the run game, and Eli is under consistent pressure. I'm not bashing Beatty at all. I'm just curious to why there's so much love for him. Was he really that good?
