Default Porter ranked most over rated NFL player

Just found another Prisco story on sportsline. Looks like he wants to generate a tidal wave of reactions today going by the Hall of Fame article.

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10205109

Quote:
A certain magazine known for a cover jinx put Joey Porter on its cover last year and called him the NFL's meanest man.

This would have been a better description: The NFL's most overrated player.

Porter signed a five-year, $32 million deal with the Miami Dolphins this spring as an unrestricted free agent. The Dolphins think he can be a pass-rush force, adding to an already talented defense.


The Patriots' Ty Warren recorded 84 tackles last season. (US Presswire)
Many personnel people and coaches I talked to think they're getting something else, which is a player who has more bark than bite.

Porter had seven sacks last season, but six of those came in three games, two in each of those games. That means in the other 11 games he played -- he missed two for injuries -- he had one sack.

"What's even more alarming about that," said an AFC personnel director, "is that he played a 3-4 outside linebacker. Those players are expected to get double-digits sacks at the least."

Porter turned 30 in March, which is even more reason for concern. Add it all up, and it's why he's the pick as my most overrated player in the NFL, which is something I've picked each of the past four years.

This isn't to pile on Porter, who was fined $1,000 this week for his role in a fight with Cincinnati Bengals tackle Levi Jones in a Las Vegas casino. Porter could still face sanctions from the league for that incident.
Will be interesting to see the response to this quote.

He also provided a quick analysis of the Steelers most over rated and under rated players.

Quote:
Pittsburgh Steelers
Overrated

G Alan Faneca. He's a nice run blocker, but he struggles in pass protection. The Steelers will make the wise move not paying him a new deal.

Underrated

DE Brett Keisel. He always seems to be around the quarterback. This year, the Steelers plan to use some special defenses where he will line up as rover.
I think he is right on the money with Keisel. Faneca is the logical choice in the current climate.

I look forward to your comments

Good, Prisco makes sense this time. He's right about Keisel too, the guy is special and he will prove he shouldn't be underrated.

I can think of a few, but I think hes pretty high up there. Randle El is more so than him in my opinion.

I agree 1,000,000,000% with the comment about Faneca.. I have been saying this for a long time... the comment about Porter.. I dont agree with at all. I love this guys intensity and he will make some difference in Miami, I just dont know how he will adapt to a 4-3. Alot of LB's leave the Steelers and never perspire anywhere else. I wish him all the luck in the world, except when he plays us of course.. I love Keisel by the way, but our most underrated player has to be 2 people... Willie Parker and Hines Ward or James Farrior.. they all mean alot to our team and most dont even realize what they mean to us until they are missing in the lineup..
