I was talking to my friend the other day who happens to be a cowboys fan (I don't know why we're friends" and we were trying to think of the most overrated players on our respective teams as well as the Most underrated. He said that Flozell Adams and Zach Thomas (he didn't include Roy Williams because he's done for the season) were the most overrated and that Marc Colombo and Anthony Henry are the most underrated
I came up with this for the Giants:
Antonio Pierce- I know he's an above average player but he's not an elite linebacker, he's very smart and that is the best part of his game, but does anyone realize that when Chase Blackburn fills in for him there is very little dropoff at the position?
Ahmad Bradshaw- It seems that in games in which Brandon Jacobs hasn't played, Bradshaw looks considerably more vulnerable. He was also mediocre at kickoff returning. Hopefully he can become an every down back in the future as well as stop fumbling.
Chase Blackburn- This guy is not only the best special teams player on the team, but he doesn't look like he's gonna give up his starting job at linebacker any time soon.
Domenik Hixon- After last week need I say more?
Steve Smith- Makes as many big third down catches as anyone in the NFL.. He's very quick with great hands.
Kevin Boss- He's not only blocked but so far in his short career he's already made more big catches than Shockey ever did.
Corey Webster- He's developing into a shutdown corner after being considered a liability at cornerback less than a year ago.
It's an interesting thing to think about when the team is so stable
