Most Overated Saint, Most Underrated Saint
Found this column amusing...

Per Pete Prisco of CBS Sportsline the most overrated and underrated Saints players:

New Orleans Saints

Overrated: RT Jon Stinchcomb. He's a decent player, but he gets Pro Bowl votes every year. That I don't see.

Underrated: S Malcolm Jenkins. He became a full-time starter last season and made Saints fans forget about Darren Sharper. A former corner, he has the range needed to play in this era of wide-open football.

Overrated-underrated: Polamalu can't cover; Pack's Williams can - NFL - Football

The obvious overrated answer is Reggie Bush, but that's too easy. I don't see what everyone else sees in Jo-Lonn Dunbar.

Underrated: Marvin Mitchell. I wasn't a fan, but he seemed to play really well last year.

Overrated- Dang...wish the Shockster was still around! :) Gonna agree with Prissy on this one...Stinky gets my vote. Not trying to put him down but I couldn't think of anyone else more worthy...on the current roster.

Underrated- My gut tells me to go with Lance Moore. I think if he and Welker would have swapped teams for the last 5 years or so...Moore would be a superstar and nobody would know who Welker was.

I got confirmation of 1 of 2 possible things. Believe it or not...I had to google to come up with Moore's name. Now...the 1st possibility is simply because of the topic of this thread...he is underrated so much that his name doesn't just pop into my head.

The 2nd possibility is that I am an old fart and should not start my day doing certain things...:)

(You is OK for me to call myself names...:) )

Overrated - There's Bush, and then there's everyone else. No one else is even close.

Honorable mention
Stinchcomb (Over-rated by the media, under-rated by Saints fans)
Ivory (awesome talent, but too frequently hurt)

UnderratedCarl Nicks (he's our BEST O-lineman and has been for a year)
Pierre Thomas (our best RB for several years now)

Depends on your definition of over-rated.

Listening to Saints fans you swear the dude was Earl Campbell, Adrian Peterson and Bo Jackson all rolled into one.

Saints fans never speak of PT they way they speak of Ivory. Not even close.

Underrated by the media, overrated by many Saints fans.

If anything he is underrated by Saints fans:doh:

Many have said he was our best RB, when healthy. That can not be denied.
I've said it myself quite a few times.
