    Sorry, I screwed up on the title of this one.........I put overrated twice when this one should be UNDER-RATED.

    My bad, I'd totally delete it if I could, but, its not possible.

    I actually think it is Peak. He makes big plays and we will need them this season. Hopefully I am right on this one.

    Gaffney is the most underrated. He catches everything thrown his way. The only problem is that Carr has made his read: Look at AJ, dump to Davis.

    OK, go ahead and blast away!! BUT, my choice is Billy Miller! you guys love to blast him to hell and back, BUT, considering the lack of quality playing time he gets, I don't think he gets a chance to prove his worth. JMO!!

    I think both Gaffney and Faggins are underrated, Gaffney for the reason mentioned above, and Faggins because he hasn't had the same kind of attention as guys like Glenn, Robinson, and now, Buchanon.

    1) Petey Faggins - Starting to gain a lil respect.
    1a) Derrick Armstrong - With more PT he could develop into our 2 ... Thats IF JMathis is a season away from cracking the starter role. On the other foot, if JM comes in & starts just blowing DBs doors off DA & CBradford will be the odd men out. That is not to say they won't play, it only means their respective PT will suffer IMO. That'd be a good problem though. :drool:

    David Carr- has all the physical gifts to be one of the best, has got a cannon for an arm and a head on his shoulders. Just no damn time in the pocket to check down from AJ to Gaff or the no.2.

    Jason Babin- that first game when he dropped Tomlinson behind the line as the guy was about to turn the corner. If he can wrap up running backs like that this guy is gonna be an enforcer.

    Dunta Robinson- I know... runner up for d-rookie of the year. Can anyone remember another corner with this much tenacity!?

    That being said I guess our first round picks. :) Except for AJ they all seem to get subpar respect.

    Gaffney catches everything? Since when?

    No doubt...Gaffney is good, with more and more upside shown every year. But, Gaffney has to stop doing things like leaving the ball on the one, before I would lift the "underrated" label.

    As far as recievers....Armstrong is way more underrated than Gaffney, soley cuz he's not starting and should be with his hands.

    Domanick Davis is underrated, he has been the workhorse for this team for the past two years. And after two consecutive 1,000 yard rushing seasons people still want to get rid of him. Even though he had more rushing touchdowns than Curtis Martin(12), Deuce McAllister(9), Ahman Green(7), Corey Dillon(12), Edgerrin James(9) and as many rushing TDs as Steven Jackson(4), Chris Brown(6) and Brian Westbrook(3) combined. All some people talk about is how he gets injuried and fumbled a few times.

    Glenn Earl. I never really saw him make a mistake and he was allways around the ball. If he can improve on his coverage skills, he'll be a good SS.

    Babin 1st with Wong a close 2nd. I notice a few of you guys are saying peek is gonna blow up this year, and I hope he does. The player who I think is under valued is Babin. All he did as a rookie is start every game, and he didn't do to bad. I think he will be the most consistant LB we will have with Peek having high's and lows. Wong in my opinon is U/V and will do well in the middle.

    Babin led the team in QB hurries. With a year under his belt at the new position and continued growth in his strength and conditioning, some of those hurries should turn into sacks this season.
