1. Little Ben
2. Hines Ward

4. Ray Lewis
5. Reuben Droughns

Underrated:
1. Madieu Williams
2. Jeremi Johnson
3. T.J.
4. Heath Miller
5. Chris McAllister

Talk about a hater! We just won the Super Bowl, and demolished the competition in the playoffs, all on the road. But our three top offensive players are all over rated?? LOL
I enjoy a good fan, nothing wrong with backing your team, but have a little knowledge of the game, and some smarts!

Just what we need, idiots to insult big ben, ward, and parker. That just shows some people don't have a mind. they at least showed heath some respect. TJ Jerkmanzadshit and Chad Johnson are the most overrated.

Well your a Browns fan so I can see were you would get irritated with some Steelers players. But at the same time you give players like Hines Ward their just due. I take football way to serious and I love my Steelers. But I'm also an NFL fan and enjoy watching other teams and players. So I try not to bash other teams and players. Thats not my style. But if other want to bring it. I'll bring it also.

Anyways look forward to the upcoming season. Its going to be interesting in the AFC North this year. I expect more improvement from the Browns under Romeo. With the free agents he has brought in and the Browns recent drafts he his shaping the Browns into his team. If Winslow and Edwards can come back and stay healthy the Browns have some nice young talent on offense. I'm a fan of Mac QB's so I think Frye could be a player in this league.

You all must understand,98% of the Bengals fans weren't fans until some point last season.Before then they either were fans of another team or weren't football fans at all.

LOL don't worry man,u don't count as part of the 98%.

But you have to admit,you didn't see many Bengals fans until they went 8-8 two years straight,then last year all-of-a-sudden they were all over Ohio,Kentucky,and some of Indiana.

Just flat out stupid. Paul from Gaytown needs to zip up his fly.

I didn't know Reuben Droughns got that much press. He got Heath Miller right.

Overrated:

Chad Johnson: People always talk about how great he is, he always talks about how great he is, yet when it comes down to the big time he never can be found.

Carson Palmer: He won a Heisman (sp), and he's the startin QB for the bengals, but it's way too early to start callin him the god of football like so many people do.

Randel El: A multi-sided player but was not the best receiver. People practically cheered when he left the Steelers thinkin that his loss alone would be enough to bring a downfall to our passin game when in reality he did get a lot of press for his work in the gadget plays but otherwise was never a standout performer in the regular season.

Underrated:

Cedric Wilson: After Burress left we had to switch up our receiver set up. Wilson was never thought to be a big play maker but always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to make big plays. If anythin he showed enormous effort every game and should be allowed to stay in the receivin rotation for games next season.

That's all I can think of for now. Peace.

BuFu

I don't think Carson Palmer is overrated at all. The guy is a very good NFL QB and still growing as a player. I know he is a Bengal but I have to give the guy his just due. Trust me I don't think he is so far and above better then Ben like many people think. Both Carson and Ben are great young QB's. I would be more then happy with either of them to build my football team again. Of course I would take Ben over Carson. But I just think Ben is the perfect QB for our team.
