Wtf? Half the people on that list can't be overrated cause they aren't rated that high in the first place. Michael Crabtree, D'whoever Ferguson, Eric Winston, and Sidney Rice? They're known of but they aren't considered top players by anybody that I have seen/heard. Then Polamalu at #1 lmao. Fox must have allowed their Nascar coverage writers to make a football ad :noidea:

I believe the Troy is overrated storyline got going when he was hurt during the 2010 playoffs and was beaten several times in teh Super Bowl against Green Bay (NFL Network Sounds Of The Game had teh Packers on the sideline saying Troy could not cover anyone)

Do not know if he is overrated but he does have coverage issues - he was beaten badly on the play that set up the Bills only TD Saturday night

I'll agree to that: Troy is not the best in coverage... just as BB is not the most nimble afoot... and James Harrison is not the nicest of people.

[Catch my drift?]

What Troy does well, he does better than anyone else in the past decade: makes QBs feels confused, makes QBs think twice before they throw, and forces QBs to locate him.

[Not arguing with YOU. Irritated at the piece/article.]

It is true that Troy struggles in man coverage. He did get burnt in that SB as did everybody else, and he didn't have an impressive year last year by his standards, but he's in now way close to the most overrated player in football. I worry about him being on the decline, we'll find out this year IMO, but even if he is he still not overrated. As mentioned, that sound clip may play into it. Also the touchdown catch AJ Green made over him last year could have easily been intercepted and he watched it fall into Green's hands to the confusion of everybody watching it, and it was replayed over and over. He was also embarrassed Week 1 by Ed Dickson and Flacco.this year in a game that the had a lot of people watching it. Those 2 things will stay in the head of opposing fans who don't watch our games unless their team is playing us.

If they're considering only his 2011 campaign they have a point, he did make the pro bowl despite the lack of big plays that he's known for. He has become increasingly fragile over the years, and the frequent injuries are taking a toll on his impact, that and I think coaches around the league are better prepared to deal with him now that he's been playing for almost a decade.

Troy plays like Troy like Ben plays like Ben.
Sometimes both play like their over-rated and sometimes under-rated.
I'm glad both are unique in their own special ways and could really
care less about ratings, but what really matters is at the end of the day.

Hey guys I think that Troy Polamalu is losing his step, if he hasn't already lost it. I ,like many other experts, believe that T. Malu is the number one overrated player in the entire league right now. He is too slow to cover and looks like he is running in slow motion. We might want to trade him while we can get something for him.

If it makes ya feel better you can look back a few years when we played the ravens in the playoffs and they gave up the huge lead they had on us, and lost the game. Then you can look at last year when the ravens choked on a winning TD pass, and then choked on a 20 yard field goal all in the same game.

It's ok to be upset that we lost to a team that we should have beat even with our dismantled o line, and d line that game, I understand that.... but you should be happy that you're not a fan of the perennial choke artists from Baltimore.

Troy's problem is that those daring plays he makes and going 100 mph also leaves him many "misses" and gets beat from time to time.
But he's not 'over-rated'. His dynamic play makes up for the negatives.

Polamalu enters season ‘safety centered’

By Alan Robinson
Published: Sunday, September 2, 2012

Troy Polamalu remembers when he could rely upon his exquisite timing to vault the offensive line and propel himself into the backfield, disrupting a play even before it started. Nobody else in the NFL could do it.

Or when he made plays so instinctively and athletic — such as his improbable, one-handed interception on a snowy field against Philip Rivers of the Chargers — that it required multiple replay reviews to determine how he possibly made them.

Those were the days for the player of a generation. These days, Polamalu is out to prove it’s not a generation that’s passed.

“I’ve been hiding a lot of my faults,” he says, laughing.

Once a super athlete whose ability to play half the positions on defense made him a game plan nightmare for offensive coordinators, Polamalu — at age 31 — is as apt to rely on his nine-plus seasons of experience as he is his unnatural instincts. He’s also become more of a true safety than a defender who regularly makes can-you-believe-it’s-true plays.

And when he films those Head & Shoulders ads that, according to Procter & Gamble, boosted sales 10 percent among the young adult target group, he must tint some of his gray hair. He’s also more fastidious about his offseason eating, dieting earlier in advance of training camp this year than before.

It’s not as if Polamalu is being ravaged by time; it’s just that a player for the ages has to be conscious of his age. He also appears intent on improving upon a 2011 season in which the Steelers were No. 1 defensively and he made the All-Pro team, but his interceptions dropped to two from seven the season before.

“I think he likes people saying he’s lost a step or that he’s injured too much,” fellow safety Ryan Clark said. “Troy isn’t Troy until the lights go on.”

A Fox Sports analysis recently referred to Polamalu’s 2011 season as being “average” and called him one of the NFL’s top 10 overrated players, but NFL Network analyst Jamie Dukes disagrees. He ranks Polamalu as the second-best safety behind Eric Berry of Kansas City.

However, Dukes said, “More teams are finding a way to put him in space, and that’s the only real chink in his armor ... you can negate him.”

Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau appears to be taking a less-is-more approach with Polamalu to utilize his strengths and prevent him from getting too overloaded with responsibilities, thus avoiding that negation factor.

“My role in the defense has changed quite a bit,” Polamalu said. “I was playing five different positions. Am I playing nickel? Am I playing dime? Am I playing safety? It was like, ‘We want to attack Troy when he’s in that position, but he might not be in that position.’ ”

Polamalu is becoming, in his words, more “safety-centered” and less likely to be an inside linebacker on one play, a nickel back the next and a blitzing cornerback the play after that.

“It’s changed quite a bit in that way, and with time it’s changed even more,” Polamalu said. “There’s always a possibility of playing dime, nickel, and I played quite a bit of it last year. But it was more like, ‘All right, guys, we’ve got to put this in in the middle of the game.’ Which is nice for coach LeBeau to be able to go there because I have that experience. It’s lessened my role in the whole scheme of things.”

When he shifts positions, Polamalu said, it’s not just to give the offense a different look but to — in his words — “calibrate our eyes” so everyone on the defense understands what is going on at every level.

“Sometimes when you’re just down, down, down in the box and reading tight ends and in the slot playing man-to-man the entire game, you get into deep pass ... and you see the game differently,” he said. “What’s tough about the position is over half the game I’m playing man-to-man on a receiver, and the other third or quarter I’m playing in the box, and the other one I’m playing deep pass.”

So it’s not as if Polamalu has gone from being an every-day position player to the football equivalent of a designated hitter.

“I think Troy’s back to being Troy,” Clark said.

Just an older, wiser Troy.
