    Re: Leber, over rated?

    I recall him getting some gamechanging turnovers...like when the Lions were beating us at home. D'oh!!!
    All in all, I think he did what he was asked to do.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Re: Leber, over rated?

    I don't think he is overrated for here. If he went somewhere else and he didn't have the same system or supporting cast, he might not do as well, but here he is getting props because he deserves them.

    Re: Leber, over rated?

    He is a very solid LB, and more on the great side than not so great side.
    He is not the best, but is a very good one.
    He is a keeper.

    Well the vikings are going to have to make a desicion on him anyways coming shortly...with greenway and ej...and leber...that could be a good set of linebackers..but i see us going after Briggs in the FA market...just maybe?

    Re: Leber, over rated?

    ben leber is underrated if anything..the guy was a huge playmaker this season, and when there were mistakes, it wasnt his name that came up at fault..the guy makes things happen, and thats what you ask for from a guy playing his spot
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    When you value what he did as a free agent in one year compared to Smoots 2 years I think the case is closed.
    When All else fails....at least theres Football. Beer, and Women (not necessarily in that order)

    That is a faulty comparison.
    A CB and LB have completely different roles, so using one as the base line for the other just doesn't work.

    Re: Leber, over rated?

    Well he is probably overrated by us, and underrated by the rest of the league.
