Overrated former and current Saints

http://www.cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/6650947



Here are the overrated players for the other 31 teams.

Green Bay Packers
Joe Johnson, DE. When the Packers signed him as a free agent before the 2002 season, several scouts and personnel men thought it would be a bad move. Johnson got hurt last year, but even healthy, he isn't the player he once was. Johnson has four tackles and no sacks in two games.

Houston Texans
Charlie Clemons, OLB. The Texans think this converted middle linebacker can be a pass-rush force in their 3-4 scheme. So far he doesn't have a sack and has just one tackle. If rookie Antwan Peek didn't get hurt, he would have taken his job.

New Orleans Saints
Dale Carter, CB. At his best, Carter was a shutdown corner who was tough to beat. But age and off-field problems have eroded his game. He still can be quite good at times, but is no longer the cover player he once was.
Tennessee Titans

Eddie George, RB. The Eddie George of three years ago would never be in this space. But injuries and carries have slowed the once-powerful runner. He can still be effective, but he isn't the same player he was earlier in his career, yet he still gets that type of respect.

Overrated former and current Saints

I don\'t think the guy is right, I don\'t hear a mass of people singing the praises of Dale Carter, so I\'m having a hard time believing he\'s over-rated.

Now don\'t anyone go ballistic on me here, because I do happen to think HE WILL BE A GREAT PLAYER, but Hamstring Stallworth is the most over-rated guy on our roster. He can\'t stay healthy for more than a 3 games at a time, it\'s always the hammy, and he couldn\'t beat out Pathon for the #2 spot. And you see him ALL THE TIME, especially as a MUST TAKE in fantasy leagues and such. Stallworth seems way more over-rated to me than Carter.

Tough call BMG. All stallworth does is score TD\'s. I just think some players have a knack for knowing how to get themselves into the end zone and Donte is one of those guys.

If you have a chance to isolate Donte I would be willing to say he plays the whole game to set up his defensive players for one scoring opportunity. I am not saying he takes off plays but more that he plays a game within the game and when time comes for a big play he has the upper hand on the defense.
