Overpaid, yes.

Overrated, no. I don't think ANY pundit expected him to come in and put up a thousand yards receiving.
I think that is the key. He is for sure overpaid. Now if you are using that as the guideline of defining overrated, then yes he is. But that doesnt mean he is an important part of the team.

Hey atleast he was right about Gloston.

If he is, in your opinion good when healthy, surely this means he isn't overated! How can someone you think is good be overated?

I don't think it is fair to call a player overated due to injuries...if you know he is good when not injured, then he must have been healthy long enough to show you how good he is.

Re: CBS Sportsline list of overrated and underrated players for each team

There are times when I feel Phillip Daniels is overrated. It's most probably due to his super-human performance versus Dallas in 2005 and then not replicating that performance.

I actually think Santanna Moss is underrated. I think back to so many on-the-fly adjustments he's had to make these past few years. If you look at his touchdown highlights, his agility simply amazing.

only steve smith is on his level when it comes to agility or on the fly adjustments

I knew this would be controversial. When he manages to: 1) stay healthy 2) put up CLOSE to his 2005 numbers and 3) maintain #1 and #2 then I'll consider him elite. I love him. I think he's great and love him as our #1. I also hope he DOES put up those 2005 numbers. People tend to think that if someone labels someone as overrated, they don't like them.

Santana just has to show me that 2005 wasn't a fluke. Prior to 2005 AND in 2006, he was basically a non-factor. I think the potential is there, the fact that people are already anointing him "elite" is what makes him overrated to me.

We have said this time and time and time again about ANY player in this league. One season does not an elite player make.

If you're applying elite to Moss from one season, why not Tony Romo based on half a season?

You also can't really put Moss under top 10 based on 2006 season because of the QB situation.. All we can do is shut up and watch how far Moss goes this season with only ONE good qb..

Re: CBS Sportsline list of overrated and underrated players for each team

Funny how both Vick and Vince Young are on the overrated list. Can't disagree with that assessment.

Re: CBS Sportsline list of overrated and underrated players for each team

I guess for ARE to be overrated, he has to be valued somewhat.

But to TMC's point, the fact that we overpaid him means that our organization did overvalue him. I mean, being overpaid is the true definination of being overrated at least from an organizational standpoint.

He's not a very good receiver, so its hard to say he isnt overrated, but hes good enough to get the job done and brings a lot to the table, so although I do think hes overrated, I'm still glad to have him.

VY han't done crap yet outside of pass with the proficiency of a rookie, but he shouldn't have too much of a problem seperating himself from Vick in the future.

VY is overrated right now, but I think he will justify the hype someday. Vick never will.

I think Gibbs puts a lot of value on him as a returner. A great return man can singlehandedly take you from 8-8 to 10-6. Only a few other players are in a position to do that. I think there will have to be a re-evaluation after this season. Those big returns seem really valuable when a team is successful and he's due for a couple this year.
