The irreplaceable skillset is strictly limited to the upper echelon players. There's plenty of other guys out there that can step in and replace your 3rd and 4th liners. If there was another football strike and they went the replacement route, except for the QBs and a couple elite running backs you would hardly see the difference in the game.
