    Chuck Foreman should make the list as one of the most underrated players.

    One of the reasons stated was that Carter did not look like he was making spectacular catches. Neither did Jerry Rice; they both made it look easy. Is that actually a bad thing?

    Cris Carter did not even make the list. What was the other guy talking about?

    Bernard Berrian made the list as overrated. Who rated him high enough to be overrated? It wasn't like he was going to the Pro Bowl on reputation. He was never good enough for that.

    Cris Carter is probably the most underrated Viking of all time based on how long it took him to make it to the hall of fame.

    The Vikings gave him a huge contract which he never came close to redeeming.

    I don't think Jim Marshall would say Cris waited too long
