Most Overrated Player in the NFL?

Brandon Jacobs.  That's what Pete Prisco of CBS Sports thinks.  Even when Jacobs was getting 1,000-yard seasons in 2007 and 2008, Prisco felt that he was overrated.  He thinks that "the Giants offense is significantly better when Ahmad Bradshaw, all 5-9 of him, is in the backfield."

I know that Jacobs won't make guys miss and he does run too uprightly but saying that he's the most overrated player in the NFL is too much.  I'm sure there are other players making more money who have done less for their team. Roy Williams of the Cowboys and Jay Cutler of the Bears come to mind.

As for his assertion that the Giants are better with Bradshaw than Jacobs, I'm not ready to say that either.   Sure. He can fit through holes in which Jacobs cannot.  He can avoid tackles that Jacobs cannot.  Still though, I don't trust Bradshaw's ability to pick up the blitz and with our passing game and older O-line, that's very important..

At least he recognizes that Terrell Thomas is the most underrated player on the Giants.  Aaron Ross better bring it in 2010.  On Giants.com, Bruce Johnson said that he feels that he still needs to earn respect from the coaches and his teammates.  He's not taking anything for granted.  If Ross doesn't take care of business, he could be no.4 on the depth chart.
