    For me it is without a doubt Torry Holt. Just cause he doesnt talk a big game, doesnt mean hes not having one. He's leading the league in yards and third in touchdowns. All of that without being a thug. Why cant all other receivers take a page from his book?

    Who are your underated players?

    Actually, he referrs to himself as big game. I think that counts.

    But really, I think it's Andra Davis from the cleveland browns. There isn't a more underrated leader in the NFL, and he's one hell of a LB.

    He doesnt taunt like T.O. or Moss. He doesnt give up on his team either.

    TO never gave up on his team.

    I just have a problem with someone calling themselves "big game" it's rather pathetic.

    Offense: J. Chatman(N.O.) or T.J. Houshmandzadeh
    Defense: Dunta Rob.

    J. Chatman gave LT some good breathers last year and gained an average to 8-10 YPC. Housh gained 134 Rec. Yards against the Pats last year, thats says enough.

    *For those Seattle fans around the boards this week.

    My hat goes off to all the forgotten FB's. There seem to have been a number of great blockers out there that get almost no recognition. I mentioned some of them, but there are quite a few.

    Holt is never mentioned in the same breath as the top 5 receivers. He doesnt get attention like the other receivers do.

    Great list besides Kreutz, I think he and Kevin Mawae may be two of the most overrated players in the league. They're kindof the mandatory pro bowl vote getters because they were really good one year.

    But like I said, great list.

    IMO most offensive linemen are underrated (except for the Texans). But I cant say Alan Faneca is underated IMO he is the #1 ranked Guard in the league. Also I dont think Mack Strong and Tony Richardson are underrated. The FB position in general is underrated. But they are considered to be the best.
