  • Over and Underrated

    Overrated
    Vince Young - I hate to break hearts but teams will figure this kid out like they did with Vick and when they do he doesn't have enough "Quarterback" in him to win big games. His defense is helping him out a ton right now.

    Reggie Bush - I'm not saying the kid won't be great, but right now everyone wants him to be something he isn't (an elite running back) so they cover it up by saying he is.

    Michael Strahan - Love the guy but he isn't what he used to be and he doesn't make the big plays anymore.

    Mike Brown - He has loads of talent and he's a great saftey, but if you can't stay healthy then I dunno what to tell ya. I think he should be cut honestly even though he won't be.

    Underrated
    Al Harris - Possibly the best man coverage DB in the NFL. I'll never forget him getting a pick 6 against Hasselbeck in the playoffs in OT.

    Steve Smith - Better than Chad Johnson IMO but gets less recognition. Not the most physically gifted, but this guy makes plays. Look at his game against the Texans.

    Jared Allen and Kyle Vanden Bosch - Both guys make huge plays at key moments but don't get any media credit past "Oh.. nice play"

    Anthony Smith - The backup safety for the Steelers. I don't know why this kid doesn't start. He dominated preseason and he makes big hits forces fumbles and gets picks with the very little time he's on the field.

    The NFL O-lineman - Lets be real... they're all underrated.

    Mike Brown and Michael Strahan will be retiring after this year, so those points are mostly moot. Reggie Bush is probably the most overrated, since he hasn't done anything substantial aside from star in 1,812 stupid commercials.

    I strongly agree about the O-linemen. In my opinion, the offensive line is the most important position group in the game (yes, more than QB).

      KR/PR - Let's forget Hester, who's an aberration. But the difference between a good PR and a bad one is maybe 2 or so yards per return. For a KR more like 4-5 (I just pulled those number out of my magic hat). Over a game with half a dozen punts and a handfull of kickoffs, those numbers start to add up to something pretty meaningful.

      A good non-Hester example is bad-boy Pacman Jones. The Titans biggest loss with his suspension was his return play. He was a factor in a number of the wins during VY's 8-5 season finish. His replacements, Davis and Griffin have not showed the same dynamic playmaking ability.

        Most important offensive position- O-Line
        Most important defensive position-Secondary
        Most important thing overall- SPECIAL TEAMS

        Without a good O-Line you can't run the ball because your back has nowhere to go. You can't pass because your recievers don't have time to get open

        Without a good secondary, it doesn't matter how good the rest of the defense is because your opponent can pass all day long.

        Without good special teams you will constantly be facing horrible field positions. Fact- 1/3 games are strictly decided by special teams. Every single close game would have been different if the losing team had better special teams

          Finally someone is realizing that Vince Young is not that good. He was a stud in college but not that great of a QB. He is a competitor I will give him that but I wouldn't want him as my QB of the future

            I'll take Young, and I'll win a championship before teams with 26 or 27 other QBs in the NFL.

              Personally, I think Young is the most underrated player in the NFL.

                He needs a good mentor/coach/something, someone to tell him that running should be the last option, as if he wants an NFL career of 10+ years, sooner or later he'll hurt himself and/or slow down (as a result).

                Just imagine if he got his completion percentage up a few percent and improved that TD/INT ratio (both realistic things to expect from a young QB)? Fran Tarkenton. Yeah!

                  The thing is, he has no weapons. His best WR is Roydell Williams.

                    His weapon is an awesome coaching staff with Fisher and Chow, a brutal pounding running game, and a great defense. I don't think Young will ever win a Superbowl or do damage in the playoffs past the wildcard

                      Young is doing what he can with a go awful supporting cast. If the Titans draft a top reciever, he could truly end up excellent

                        Come on now... I loved the Rose Bowl as much as the next guy, but this kid doesn't make good passing decisions. He's inconsistent. I'm not anywhere near sold on him.

                          Not everyone seems sold on VY then. What about other 1st round QBs of '06.

                          Leinart been equivocal so far, and his injury this season will lead to a hung jury on him until 08.

                          Cutler, well his o-line has seen some nasty injuries, as well as his top WR and a few of his TEs. I'm a Denver man and we're always going to compare him to number 7, who also had a less than impressive start. He's been good at times, particularly leading a few last minute drives leading to field goals. However in a way, those were his holes created by earlier interceptions.

                            I love Cutler. I think he'll be a great QB. Until this year I also would have said Roy Williams (Dallas) is overrated. The man just couldn't cover the pass. His deep zone coverage in particular was awful, but he seems to have improved this year and he's still a tank against the run.

                            You guys have any people to contribute to the over/under rated list?
