    Is two years in the NFL enough to earn somebody overrated honors?

    It is for Reggie Bush...

    Minnesota Vikings

    Overrated: LT Bryant McKinnie. You look at his physical skills and you should see an elite tackle. You just don't. He's OK, but has never lived up to the hype.

    Underrated: LB E.J Henderson. He moved back to the middle last season and showed he's there to stay. He is a big reason the Vikings played the run so well in 2007.
    I can agree with that assessment.

    I promise to get back into the 53-man roster breakdown tomorrow. . .it's been a pretty hectic day over on this end when it comes to "real world" stuff.
    Just thought I'd hit a couple of tidbits here...

    Overrated: WR Hines Ward.
    Highly disagree. He is who we think he is, and that is a damn good reciver.

    Overrated: WR Drew Bennett.
    There it is. I still remember this one fan yelling at him and he said something like "I have you in fantasy, but I will never play you because you suck" If someone can find that video, I will love them till the end of time

    Couldn't agree more.

    Overrated: QB Vince Young. He's young and still learning, but you'd think he's a superstar the way the media talks him up. He's far from it.
    I've been saying that for 2 years, but some still want to sniff his crotch.

    Only a few? You need to stop in more often.

    Re: Overrated & underrated NFL players

    Overrated: DE Julius Peppers. He's considered a top pass rusher by many, but had just 2½ sacks last season. That's not good enough. I still think he can get back to his old form, but as of now he's overrated.
    That is why I did not want him.

    Overrated: WR Chad Johnson. He has loads of ability, but he doesn't produce as much as he should in the big games. He did not score a touchdown in four of the Bengals' five games against playoff teams in 2007. He certainly isn't as good as he thinks.
    I would put Carson before Chad.
