    Inspired by
    1. Another thread
    2. A terrible lack of anything worthwhile to talk about besides Tyler ;)

    Who is the most underrated, non-patriot (so we have to actually think) in the league?

    here's a couple:
    Trent Green, QB
    Will Witherspoon, LB

    Tiki Barber. A great guy that I had the good fortune of meeting a year and a half ago. There is no way he is over 190 lbs. People talk about small backs not being able to take it up the middle and get the tough yards. Tiki does it all, and he's gotten over the fumble problems of a few years ago.

    Willie Parker. I've heard somewhere that it is assumed that Staley is a lock for the starting RB job next year in Pittsurgh - I think they are crazy.

    I'm gonna catch flack for this one ( if the steeler props don't ellicit full on flaming), but I think Jay Fiedler is underrated. He never had a lot of help or protection in Miami and is a tough SOB. I think he'd make an intriguing prospect for #2 or #3 QB.

    Someone mentioned that Eli Manning is overrated in another thread. I dont think he is highly rated at all, but now that he has learned to handle the blitz I think he may be a bit underrated. With the weapons he has he should have a great year.

    Interesting piece on Adrian Wilson by Pete Prisco recently.

    I think he's pretty underrated. Superb strong safety. 8 sacks last year. NFL record for a defensive back.

    Trent Green is a good one. His numbers the last 4 seasons are as good as anyone's but you rarely hear him talked about as a star QB - mostly because he doesn't get to throw the 1, 2, and 3 Yd TDs to pad those numbers like the Manning's and Culpepper's of the world always have.

    I can't spell it but I think TJ Houzmenzadah is a terrific WR gets very little pub because Chad Johnson spends so much time showboating.

    WR Derric Mason. Even on the god awful Ravens offense last year, he still got1000 yrds recieving.

    Mason and Wilson are finally getting due recognition, so my vote goes to Leigh Bodden CB Cleveland.

    Pick a center not named Mawae. Pick a guard not named Hutchinson. If you listen to TV announcers Tackles, Esp. L Tackles, are the only ones blocking.

    Reuben Droughns and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Droughns had the quietest 1,000 yard season you will ever see and Housh is overshadowed by his counterpart Chad Johnson.

    I think it could be Terrence McGee from the Bills. He's might be the best KR in the NFL. But he's also emerging as a top CB and gets overshadowed, perhaps unjustly, by Nate Clements.

    nice thread...i'm bored too (til June then I'll be gone)

    a couple which haven't yet come up...

    dan morgan
    aaron smith
    michael turner
    warrick dunn was unbelievable in '05
    lee evans
    alge crumpler
    heath miller
    michael lewis

    I know they get credit but I'm still amazed at what S.Moss and S.Smith did last year. and I'd definitely pay N.Rackers more than AV...the man is an all-around kicking machine.

    in terms of QBs, I thought Simms was great in '05 and never really got due credit...I know we literall rolled over him, but I actually gained more respect for him in that effort...thought he showed some guts...and in the playoffs.

    I have to agree with the Michael Turner selection. I watched him in college when I was at NIU and since then in the NFL. Although he hasn't seen as much PT as Willie parker, I think turner will make a great back apprenticing under LT.

    Tommy Harris made me think of Nathan Vasher. I really like his game. The whole C Bears defense (omitting Urlacher) doesn't get enough credit individually yet.

    Jake Delhomme is the most underrated QB in football.

    Warrick Dunn is a good choice. He has 1100 and 1400 yards the last 2 years and no one talks about the guy.

    Good point, mentioning Vasher. I compared him on a different thread to Champ Bailey, as he had about 30 or so tackles last year. In other words, QBs stay away from him.
