K.C. Joyner's Overrated/Underrated: 4 Patriots
8 most overrated players
Derek Anderson, QB, Cleveland: Too many INTs and poor performances
Dallas Clark, TE, Indianapolis: "second year in a row he posted a mediocre 6.4 yards per attempt"
Donald Driver, WR, Green Bay: average overall numbers and 4 GB recievers had more TDs.
Shaun Rogers, DT, Detroit: "his 4.4 YPA allowed on point-of-attack runs was quite disappointing"
Richard Seymour, DE, New England: "He allowed 4.2 YPA on POA runs and posted a mediocre 10.5 POA success percentage."
Jeremy Shockey, TE, N.Y. Giants: "Shockey's 6.8 YPA this past season was mediocre" plus he only had 1 big game.
Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE, Tennessee: Lots of coverage sacks and was a liability against the run.
Mike Vrabel, LB, New England: "Six of his sacks were of the coverage/scheme/run/garbage type, and he had only a single one-on-one sack in the last seven weeks of the regular season."
8 most underrated players
Bobby Engram, WR, Seattle: All his numbers were better than Drivers.
Anthony Gonzalez, WR, Indianapolis: "Gonzalez's 11.2 yards per attempt last season would be extremely impressive for a veteran wide receiver, but Gonzalez did it in his rookie campaign."
E.J. Henderson, LB, Minnesota: "Henderson's phenomenal 36.5 defeated block percentage shows he deserves a lot of credit for his abilities to stuff the run as well."
Anthony Henry, CB, Dallas: Metrics on par with Newmans.
Cory Redding, DT, Detroit: "Redding's 30 defeated run blocks and 32.3 defeated block percentage were both Pro Bowl-caliber numbers."
Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork, defensive linemen, New England: "[New Englands] 4.4 YPA [allowed] ranked tied for 26th in that department. However, Warren and Wilfork were certainly not part of the problem, their 3.5 and 3.7 YPAs on point-of-attack runs clearly states."
Roddy White, WR, Atlanta: Put up better numbers than Holt and Houshmandzadeh despite revolving door of QBs.
agree for most part..Sey gets off hook a little since he came back from injury and hasnt played in a while but he certainly did better as season went on. Vrabel..some of us have admitted it, after Colvin went down, he was invisible.
