    Long snappers are likely the most underrated NFL players. What they do is amazing to me, at least.

    Personally, I think Chris Chambers is OVER-RATED!!! For someone that has NEVER broke 1000 yards receiving, and doesn't seem to be able to get open against players nowhere NEAR his speed, other than on go routes, he sure receives a lot of attention from fans. He has GREAT hands, and raw athletic ability, but that hasn't translated into much production as of yet. He has the talent to pull it out, but he needs a LOT of polishing on his skills.

    My prediction is, he STILL doesn't break 1000 yards this season... and will not lead the team in any major receiving stats, except for maybe TD's... because his hands and jumping ability ALWAYS make him a threat in the red zone.

    The most underrated player at this site certainly isn't a Dolphin, just as the most overrated player certainly is.

    The question in my mind is whether the most underrated player around here is a player for one of our conference rivals or for some NFC team we don't often see.

    LaDaianian Tomlinson. He doesn't get very much press for what he does.

    Chris Chambers underrated? When he puts up a 1000 yard season maybe, but he's only an underachiever right now.

    tough one. LT isnt underrated anymore imo, but he isnt being talked about as a potential all time best HB yet, but everyone knows he is a top 2 rb in this league right now.

    Underrated right now...hmmm Joe Horn. had his best season last year and was hardly talked about.

    Chris Chambers is neither overrated or underrated.

    Underrated and no one mentioned Trent Green???? Helloooo 3500 yards a season over the last 5 (on average) and 23-26TD's! My God and where are the targets after Gonzalez!?!?!

    I say Curtis Martin
    JJJJJJJJJ EEEEEEEE TTTTTTTTTT SSSSSSSS JETS JETS JETS

    All I hear is Mcgahee this, Dillon that and wait until Ricky and Ronnie do such and such yet Curtis Martin is just the model of consistancy and is playing like an ageless wonder. Not to mention he led the AFC is rushing last season which means he had more yards than the guys we're all talking about. When it comes to the Jets all I ever hear about is Pennington, yet it's Martin who carries that offense. I'd take Curtis on my team any day of the week.

    i'd have to agree with the guy 2 posts above me, trent green is a really great QB with no wideouts to throw to yet somehow he still leads one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL

    Underrated - David Carr - All the media hype is around Eli Manning and Carson Palmer, but David Carr is currently the best young quarterback in the NFL.

    Green is good but the Chiefs have the clear cut #1 offensive line in the NFL.

    His long hairdo impresses the ladies but I really haven't been that impressed with him. I've been more impressed with Palmer. Carr has a year on Palmer and I expect Carson to be better than him in 2005.

    That's a very interesting pick since Carr apparently wasn't able to progress past his first read for just about the whole second half of last season due to OL play. He does have Andre Johnson to throw to, though -- AJ would be on my list of underrated players ahead of Carr to tell you the truth.

    The most underrated Dolphin if you ask me is Marty Booker. Too few people here seem to really understand what he brings to the table. It's hard for me to choose a NFL's most underrated player given what happened last year in Indy (Marvin Harrison is finally not the guy). I'll give a call to Marcus Robinson. He's a very nice roleplayer to have these days. If David Boston can become that off of his lost seasons, this team will be in great shape at WR.

    That maybe true but they also have the worst set of starting wrs for a great offense. Eddie Kennison and Morton last year? Kennison and Parker this year? Ewwwww. :cry:

    Gotta give Green props for making that group look good despite the 23745745 balls they drop every year

    He also has Priest Holmes and Tony G. to throw to. I'm not shedding tears for him. His receiver situation is better than the Dolphin situation was prior to trading for Marty Booker.

    Nuh uh. I would take Mcmike, Chambers and RW to throw to over Priest, Gonzo and Morton. The KC wr's are complete garbage. Green lets them eat or theyd have been cut long ago. Kennison can burn but has hands made of stone and Morton is a ballsy player who will take the hit but not make the catch.

    Yup! you got it. Adrian Wilson. No1 ever talks about him b/c of where he plays. But the guy is always around the ball. Truly one of the best safteys in the game.

    I think Bobby Engram of the Seahawks has been lacking in press for years. The guy is clutch as a 3rd receiver, tough as nails, and rarely drops anything. I'm sure Hasselbeck appreciates him. Who knows, he might even have a shot as a starter this year, but he seems to work best out of the slot.

    Actually, it's not that hard to do. I played alot of ball in my day and that always came naturally to me. You're basically throwing an upside down pass. If you can zip a spiral standing up, just put another hand on the ball, **** your wrists and pop it. The real problem is having the balls to snap the game winning kick in the state championship game...that will make your jewels shrivel up and look for a place to hide.

    I think Carson Palmer is the best young player in the league, and the Bengals have kinda "poor man's" triplets, in Palmer, Johnson, and Rudi. I think you've got the right team in the most underrated player, but Andre Johnson is a stud, and I believe he is the most underrated player in the league. The defensive player who I believe is underrated would be Keith Bullock.

    Curtis Martin. One of the Top-10 RB's ever. Gets little respect. I guess that's what happens when your quiet, don't call attention to yourself, and just do your job consistently.

    Andre Johnson is the 2nd best receiver in the league IMo and gets no recognition

    Benji Olsen of the Titans is a top tier lineman who gets no recognition

    And although I hate the Bucs with a passion, Brian Kelly is very underrated for what he does.

    I was going to say Bertrand Berry from ARI, but someone beat me to it. I'd also have to throw Shaun Rogers out there. He did make his first pro bowl last season, but he's clearly one of, if not the best DT's in the league. On offense, I'd have to say Alge Crumpler. He's a stud.
