Default Most underrated steelers player

Seems to me that everytime people talk about the steelers secondary, we hear the names of Polamalu, Taylor and who's gonna replace Chris Hope, but Deshea Townsend has done a heck of a job since he replaced chad scott and/or dewayne washington. Those guys were a nightmare , they always gave up a big play on clutch time.
I think Deshea and Aaron smith are the most underrated Steelers players.

Anyone agrees?

I would have to agree with you about Townsend and Smith, but a guy who I have noticed who seems not to be talked about anymore is James Farrior. The was Defensive MVP 2 years ago and a huge reason for the 15-1 record. The guy is solid every game, but has the quiet persona and mentality that doesn't do anything for the press.

Good Q... nice post,

I think our whole secondary is overrated so although i agree with Townsend being underrated.. i think that the two inside LB's are probably the most on the team.. I love all of our players and even though you hear foot and farrior name called on plays ... what they do each and every play prolly doesnt get as much attention as it should.

I think both of those guts do a hell of a job and have each and every week, there are a handful of players could mention for this post, but i would have to give the nod to those two guys.

Dan Kreider.

The reason the Steelers offense is what it is is that they have an extra lineman coming out of the backfield when they need one.

Krieder. Every TV commentator seems to mention that Smith is the most underrated player on the team, which, to me, makes him a little "rated". I agree Smith is underrated, but no one ever mentions krieder except the one or two times he touches the ball a year.

Great job guys - I have to agree with all of those selections, but especially Farrior. He is the signal caller for the D and gives 150% each and every game he plays. He is also a master motivator, a locker room fave and a very good all-around LB. He was on fire in last year's playoffs - I'm certain Peytoon sees Farrior's face in his nightmares.

I'd have to go with Kreider as well. Although he is one of the best in the league he doesn't get much love.
