    Anecdotally, I've always thought that Wilfork was more than a little overrated, but I don't have any stats or film breakdowns to back it up, so I could def. be way off.

    Agreed. There are 10 other players on the field. The author seemed to pin wilfork and assume everyone else was doing a good job.

    Really you don't know if he's overrated until you take him out of the game and see what changes. As far as run stopping goes nothing up the middle gets passed him which is really all he's asked to do.
