How is a 3 time pro bowler with 22 interceptions over-rated after 4 games?

Re: CBS: Jairus Byrd Named To All-OverRated Team

before getting hurt Byrd lead the team in tackles, turn-overs and passes defended...

Don't buy the media BS, Byrd played as well as he could have considering the players around him and scheme he was put in.

With the new players, coaches and schemes I think Byrd has a chance to make the probowl. He's done it before with Buffalo. I believe.

Buffalo always had a good secondary when he was there, some teams just have strong position groups, I do believe he will bounce back to form with the additions made to the Def

Some of those players are just old or coming off injury. Fitzgerald isn't overrated, he's getting freaking old. Same with Frank Gore.

I'm not a Victor Cruz fan, but before his injury he was quite productive, and now he's overrated?

Why is Cordarelle Patterson on this list? Everyone recognizes he's raw and unproven as a receiver but one of the more dangerous kick returners in the game. That's what he is right now. Who's over rating him?

Dwayne Bowe was good for a couple of seasons and then, for whatever reason, just went to crap. Kind of reminds me of another former LSU receiver in Michael Clayton with the quick rise and fall. Again, everyone recognizes that he isn't that good anymore, so how is he overrated?

This list is just terrible. People who don't know the meaning of certain terms or phrases should not use them to write articles. To be overrated, one must be rated, or thought of, more highly than what their production warrants. It's not hard. I agree with a couple players on the list but not nearly enough to off-set the others.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
