whos more overrated

whos more of a overrated LB lavar arrington, brian urlacher, ray lewis they had this question on nfl network..

LAvar arrington
goods- great tackler, good run stopper, great cover guy, ball hawk(great ball stripper), great blitzer,blazin speed

bads- overruns plays like crazy, cnt read defenses,

brian urlacher-
goods-great tackler, good work habit, good run stopper

bad- hes not old but for a linebacker hes gettin up there, bad cover, pretty slow runner, not a great blitzer( basically hes mediocre)

ray lewis

good- great speed, good tackler, great cover, great blitzer all around great great work habit, watches game film,

bad- age is up there, his loud ass mouth , undersized




ps... even when antonio pierce was with us i thought he wa soverrated, he did good because of gregs williams defensive schemes, lets see how he does in new york,

brian urlacher is overrated. true, lavar does overrun plays a bit, but still, he makes up for it when he is at his best.

Re: whos more overrated

Ranking them in order:
1 Urlacher: He is good, but defintley not the hall of fame; feared guy he is made out to be somtimes. I really dont even give him a second thought as a main worry when we play the Bears.
2 Arrington: A big over-rated; still a good peice to the puzzel, but he hasent taken that step yet from good to great.
3 Ray Lewis: Not over-rated. That is a guy defenses plan around; however when they do attack him, they are successful alot. However when you are one of the main reasons offense's have to plan around you, you're not over-rated. He's defintley on the decline (showing it staring last year), but as a whole he is exellent.

Re: whos more overrated

Definitely Urlacher. I honestly don't think that LaVar is an over-rated as everyone is saying. EVERYONE has their flaws and I just don't feel like he falls into the "over-rated" category. Lewis is the man, he will never be over-rated. His career IS on it's downswing however.

Re: whos more overrated

Seriously... Recently it seems like a lot of us are calling players "old" when they are in their LOOOOW 30s. LOL

Re: whos more overrated

Ray Lewis #1 - Sorry folks - Old Grey Mare just ain't what he used to be. Everyone saw him making a fool of himself on Monday NIght Football complaining about all the "double teams" he was taking. If he's really as great as he says he should be more than used to it. The problem was, I believe it was Sheilds, rocked him 1 on 1 most of the game. Priest embarrassed him, and many games this year were played like that. Ray Lewis used to be great, but he's on the down slope, and he's just a murderer that can play a sport.

He had a mediocre year, especially by his standards, yet people are too afraid to call him for what he really is. I'm sick of hearing how great Baltimore's defense is (who finished behind us in nearly every category) and how great Ray Lewis is. He used to be, no doubt, but he hasn't been at that level for a long time.

As far as LaVar and Urlacher - they're about even. Both very good linebackers, Urlacher has great side-to-side running skills. Urlacher will make a lot of really solid plays for you, LaVar will make spectacular plays, and then absolute bonehead plays. There's no perfect player in this league, everyone has their downfalls.

Re: whos more overrated

lavar arrington is like 28 years old. that's not old in this league. he still probably has a good seven years of play left in him.

Re: whos more overrated

Not the way he sacrifices his body, I could certainly see injuries becoming more of a facet of LaVar's career. He sacrifices his body, like us fans love, but it doesn't equal into longevity.

Re: whos more overrated

Urlacher is a month or so older than LaVar, so how is age an issue??

Re: whos more overrated

John Hasbrouck... you could also say that about Taylor. Some people are physical freaks, but that's why people play in their respective positions because of their talents at that position.

Re: whos more overrated

im not sure, but i guess its because urlacher maybe didn't have as good as season as lavar did when he was healthy. then again im not sure so don't think that's what i think. actually lavar isn't like 28. i miscalculated. i just found out that me and lavar have the same birthday, and i was born in 1988, ten years after lavar, so he was ten years old when i was born, so that makes him 26 right now, but he'll be 27 in june. some players last really long, but i'd say that he has 8 good years left in him if he stays healthy.
