    Favre can be the answer to both of the questions.

    but really:
    Underrated - JA, Winfield, EJ
    Overrated - TJ, Greenway
    How can JA and Winny be considered underrated when they went to the Pro Bowl?
    EJ is good, most recognize it, but given he missed most of last year it's really hard to rate his performance.

    Also, Greenway led the Vikes in tackles with 115 (#19 in all NFL) and 5.5 sacks, and it was really only his 2nd year given he missed his rookie year.
    EJ's best season was his 5th season and he had 118 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

    Thus IMO Greenway is UNDERRATED.
    I think he is set to have a pro-bowl year and if EJ is fully healthy he could also make a go of it.

    Overrated: Syd Rice, he has yet to show he is starter material, yet he is a starter.
    But I really doubt he will be at the end of the year.

    Since my first overrated isn't on the team anymore I'll have to go with Rick Spielman as my choice for most overrated.

    Although, I do put any rookie WR into the overrated category.

    McKinnie earned his recognition with great play last season.

    WRs usually shine in their 3rd year. This could be his year. He is healthy and has a great QB.

    I am in total agreement with you! (on this one)

    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Overrated: I have a handful but I go with McKinnie. I see alot of analysts put him on all sorts of lists, but there is a reason he has not sniffed a Pro Bowl. His rep coming in from the U was he gives up no sacks, but that is odd, because he has a real tough time in pass blocking.
    Honorable mention: Sidney Rice, Chester Taylor

    Underrated: This is another tough one, but I am going to go with an odd one. Ben Leber. I think this guy is a HUGE leader on this team and really can play any LB spot fairly well. Chad and E.J. normally get there dues from analysts, but very few of them talk about how solid a player Leber is.
    Honorable mention: E.J. Henderson, Chad Greenway, Bernard Berrian
