lavar, in my opinion should not be listed anywhere near the top of the list. he is a little overrated but if not for his injury last season , he would have been the defensive player of the year.
Ray Lewis can still get it done, but I agree he hasn't been the same since Sam Adams and Tony Siragusa left. I don't think he's the definitive greatest player on defense that many seem to label him.

I think Warren Sapp and Brian Urlacher would make my overrated list.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

For me it is a tie between Warren Sap (all mouth and no game) and Ray Lewis. He gets blown off the ball on a consistent basis, is not the best defensive player on his own team, and his being miked up all last year killed whatever respect I had for him.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

LA has been a bust. There is no way he is worth what we gave him last year. Even if he hadnt gotten hurt, I would still say this. Last year I was ticked that we signed him to such a stupidly huge contract. Hopefully he proves us all wrong this year, that is if he doenst hold out becasue he didnt read his contract, and still thinks he deserves that 6.5 Mil bonus.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

Donovan McNAbb is my choice. HE gets to nervous in big games and barfs. He has failed to win the big ones, unless you count last years game against a overmatched Falcons team. He plays the system (West Coast) well but I think the coach is a bit of help there. And one last reason, HE IS A FREAKIN EAGLE!!

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

Good thing is, I don't think he's planning on holding out.

I'm just concerned cause we haven't heard any word on that situation lately.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

Whether or not someone is overrated or underrated is so subjective in my book.

All I'm gonna say is Arrington may be overrated a bit, but the most overrated in the entire league?? I really don't agree.

he didn't get his contract renewed last year. i think he got it done after making his 2nd consecutive trip to the probowl. he deserved it, the skins wanted him to be a skin for his entire career or at least close to it. his contract was done shortly after ray lewis got a similiar deal from the ravens.

Really, People give you shit?
Really? most people i know would agree that he is up there as the most overrated players, the only thing that surprised me was that in the Probowl he owned. seriously it could be his WR corps, with a better group of WRs that team would go far.

When you say better group, you mean he needs superheros to catch those wounded ducks that he throws.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

Thats Funny, That Vick Is Pick As Being The Most Overrated Player In The League, Uh No I Don't Think So, If After 3yrs They Haven't Figured Him Out, I Don't Think They Will Now....vick Is Far From Being The Most Overrated Player Maybe Maybe That Manning Kid In Ny, Or Kyle Boller, Oh Yeah Joey Harrington, Done Panned Out Well...oh My God, I Forgot, What About Good Ol Drew Bledsoe, If The Pocket Breaks, He Gone...poor Aron Brooks, Always We Be In The Shadow Of Poor Ole Cus....and Drew Brees....lucky He Had A. Gates Or He Would Have Been Shipped Out......so Lets See How M. Vick Career Ends Up....hell Lets See If Patrick Ramsey Will, Be Back Next Year...or Guess What...hello Campbell, Another Overrated Player That I've Heard That Wasn't Worth The Price...........

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

I don't think anyone you mentioned really is being considered overrated besides Brees. And yup, teams that have any talent on defense at all, have figured Vick out.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

You know, no one is going to convince me that Vick isn't just average overall as a QB. When he learns how to complete passes and read defenses, let me know. That said, if I own a team I want him at QB. I'm talking from a money perspective. There is no guy that I can think of that would more successfully put butts in the seats than Vick. He's exciting to watch. Can't say I don't enjoy watching him run around confused and getting put on his ass by good defensive teams, though.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

...In my opinion Vick is a pretty accurate quarterback. He needs to develop what I like to call "touch" though, because sometimes it seems like he's trying to kill his receivers with the heat he's putting on the ball, especially at short distances.

Re: Most Overrated NFL Player?

Vick has a career 53.6 completion percentage. Last year was his best season percentage wise 56.4.

Not what I would call accurate in the least bit.
