In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
The difference between Talib and Amendola, though, is that Talib can actually play at a high level when he's healthy. Amendola is just a mid-tier receiver at best. There is some risk with Talib's recurring hip injury, but at least Talib is capable of being a true impact player.
Talib is emotionally weak and can easily be taken out of games by physical receivers as we saw this year. Just because the patsies D goes from average to bad doesn't mean that he plays at a high level.
