I don't think sproles is underrated. Lance Moore is definitely underrated.

I wouldn't really call Sproles overrated. People who know and watch the league know he's very good, he's just not really a superstar name.

Now Lance Moore is about the exact definition of underrated. Dude makes some of the craziest catches and damn near has never dropped the ball.

I agree that Lance Moore is underrated...in fact, he's highly underrated.

He picked 2 from our team and the list didn't include PT. That's pretty bad.

He just picked people who put up monster stats that are mostly household names and put an "underrated" tag on them. No one in their right mind would call MJD anything less than a great RB on a terrible team.

If it makes you feel better Andre Johnson is simultaneously on the overrates list so I guess that cancels out and makes him perfectly rated

MJD I think is on the list bc he plays for Jville.

Welker....idk wtf they were thinking. DEF not underrated

I like Colston. He is without question intergral to the Saints' success, but personally I'd lean more to saying he is a bit overrated (too many fumbles and drops). No one outside of NOLA talks about Moore, yet all he does is make even the toughest of catches look routine time and time again. His deflected TD catch at Baltimore was one of the best I've ever seen

Colston is nowhere near overrated.

Colston has had his share of drops over the past few seasons, but is still say Colston and PT should be on that list.

No way Sproles is UNDERrated. I love the guy but often times I feel like he is OVERrated. The guy drops just as many balls as any other pass catcher on the team and he turns down every return opportunity that comes his way (2012 season).

Edit: Colston has never made a probowl with the stats he has put up since '06 : underrated

I htink his extending the ball across the GL in the SB perfectly sums up his play. He is a very headdy guy who does axactly what is needed to win. Awesome guy to have on a team. Love all of our receivers.

Serious?

I can't tell you how many times I wanted to smash my TV b/c he'd run the ball out 8 yards deep only to get tripped up at the 12.

#1 and #2 are bull shite.

The others listed are pretty good calls.

I would put Vince Wilfork on the list too.

Romo, however, has also massively choked. Numerously, in the worst moments. He has also been passed over by other great throwers. In the division, he has been passed by Eli Manning. In the conference, he's been passed by Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees,


Did I miss something? When was Romo ever ahead of these quarterbacks to have been passed by them?
