Wood running the channels and giving us options off the ball is equally as valuable as what Barnes does. I completely agree with Falcon as Wood has to do a lot more good stuff than Barnes to get an equally high score and Barnes has to do a lot more bad stuff then Wood to get an equally low mark. Ab...
