What about Plaxico, wouldn`t you say he is over rated??
For us I always thought A.Smith was underrated, but that changed somewhat this year.
I think Kyle Boller is a little over rated.
And without a doubt Deion Sanders, how a bout a tackle now and then.
Also always thought Troy Edwards was over rated until he played against us this year then it seemed he was under rated. He never looked so good

Over - I'd have to go with either Keyshawn, Arrington, or Shockey. If these were elementary report cards they would get "doesn't fulfill potential".

Under - Recent would say Tom Brady. After 3 Super Bowls you think you would stop thinking he can't beat you. I always think of Swayze in "Roadhouse" when everyone keeps saying 'I'd thought you'd be bigger.' Fantasy Value - Fred Taylor. Can still make everyone miss when healthy and I don't think he has ever gone to a pro bowl.

good call clevestinks..I wasnt even thinking about our own players, but ur right.. A. Smith has definately been underrated, as has Marvel SMith, IMO..and up until this year, so has Jeff hartings. I think carson palmer has more of an upside that does boller.

Everybody and their brother questioned when we drafted edwards anyways.. he was the #3 in the big 3 of WR's in the first round that year, and since we missed out on the other 2.. BC was determind to get a WR in the first round.... shoulda waited bill, Troy was a FLOP and an half!!

THE MARVEL SMITH PART IS VERY TRUE. Him and Alan Faneca could be considered as the best left side on the o-line in the NFL
