This so much.

Meanwhile, Booth scored a good clip last year (especially given his linemates).

Kesler should be drawing more of this criticism for coming back too early and becoming too enamored with his shot. I'd like to see more of the 25/50 Kesler and less of the 40/30 Kesler (style-wise, obviously, since I don't expect Kesler to touch 40 ever again).
