Underrated - Carl Nicks (With Jahri Evans slacking, he is the best OL, in the League); Malcolm Jenkins (though I'd wanted to draft Matthews, this guy is really getting ready to launch to the next level)

Underappreciated - Scott Shanle (Watch the Film, Gumbys)

Misunderstood - Reginald Alfred "Reggie" Bush II (With all the bashing, expectations have come back down to Planet Houston, Return of the Jedi Time)

Overpaid - Nah, Not Gonna Geaux There

I agree with most everything you said. Shanle is no worldbeater but better than what folks believe. I really hope Stinch gets back to form this year or he might get pushed aside by Charlie Brown.

We still need an upgrade over shanle though, hopefully casillas takes his spot and martez Wilson gets the other starting spot.
Shanle is very average, however all i can remember is him getting torched so much in the super bowl that roman harper had to cover Dallas Clark eventually.

How is Bushrod overrated? Nearly everyone thinks he's the weak link among the O-line and probably our worst starter on offense.

Is it because he's even worse than sucks?

I'd love for you to teach me one thing about linemen that I dont already know. I make a point to watch them every game and I talk about them more than anyone else for a reason. Telling me that he stunk is like sayin Bigfoot exists cuz you have absolutely no proof to backup your ridiculous claims. In fact most of the accusations against him are based on a misguided notion that the entire line regressed but if you actually do the math you'll see the line did just as well as the previous seasons. I'm afraid ppl are too cautious to place the blame on the ppl that are really at fault.... Drew and Payton

Overrated: Stinchcomb, Mount Cody (not a Saint, but way overrated)
Underrated: Colston. This cat has never made a Pro Bowl? Ridiculous. He's never mentioned with the elite in the NFL even though he should be. The reason? He's a humble young man who bring his lunch pail everyday and doesn't draw attention to himself like people expect from big-time WRs. Not that they have a clue, but ESPN ranks him as the 13th best receiver in the game... behind Roddy White? Steve Smith? Please.

As much as I love Reggie, I will agree he is overrated. Definitely not worth what we pay him.

I'll also agree Malcolm Jenkins and Lance Moore are two of the most underrated players on our roster. Both have been standouts at their positions and their stocks are rising.

i think what you dont know is recordable stats. i cant find the end of season stats that i had at the end of last year where stinch had the most allowed sack and most penalties. all i can find is mid season stats that show him still leading in penalties and sacks allowed. i admit he was playing good but as i said before this last season he was at the bottom of the list on OUR O line. league wise...he prob is an above average player. on our team the stats show him not as good as the others.
