Carl Nicks, guard: Nicks might be the best guard in football, or he might be the second-best guard on his team behind Jahri Evans. That is debatable, but what is not debatable is that Nicks does not get his due in the public eye. His movement skills for his size (318 pounds) are amazing. He is quick to recover when beaten, can pull and trap and is a good blocker in space hitting a smaller target. Nicks is a very good pass-blocker, but he is just an animal in the run game. If the Saints need a tough yard, they should run behind Nicks, even more so than Evans.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I agree that Stinch had a down year. If you look at his stats from previous years, last year was a nightmare for him. Maybe the injury (detached quad) and the movement of another official in the backfield had something to do with last year. Penalties were up across the line. Hopefully stinch will come back 100% and have a good year. He is the leader of this line.

Underrated: Sammy "I'm slow but I keeeel you" Knight

I agree with saintfan. At first I thought it was stupid, butthe more I think about it you are correct.

He's much better than some national media types and fans give him credit for.

And with many Saint's fans, if he sneezes, its the most glorious sneeze ever sneezed in the history of sneezdom and should be immediately placed in the Sneeze Hall of Fame.

most underrated would be Colston. I wouldn't say overrated but grossly overpaid Reggie. He does make plays but not enough of them for the money which is a flaw of the draft system. No rookie should come in the league unproven at the NFL level and make millions. All new contracts should be incentive based.
