Zona said it well Price.. I don't think anybody is talking about handing Kuper a starting spot anywhere. And when and IF healthy many including myself think he's the better player than Beadles in straight competition.
Actually what really complicates things is Beadles age, previous season, and up coming contract. Sure he was a pro bowler, I think many factors attributed to his success, some his own doing, but Peyton Manning is a big time placebo. He has youth and good health in his favor, and is in a contract season.
But all things being equal, Kuper is the better player when healthy..
