nice post. I agree with the most of it.. most of the guys that I thought were underrated in their positions were on your list.. guys like Choice, Pierre Thomas, Peyton Hillis, Kevin Boss, Luis Castillo, Dumervil, Kawika Mitchell.. etc

good to see my boy Steve Slaton getting a mention..



anyway, I think Jennings isn't underrated.. he's always on someone's top WRs..

Desean Jackson maybe?

Forte is a f*cking beast are you kidding? A rookie second round pick was top 5 in yards of scrimmage and he's overrated playing on that offense?

3.9 ypc behind the Chicago O-line isn't bad at all. Not to mention he had over 400 touches and 1 fumble (insane). Dude killed it. He played pretty well vs. your Vikings too. 12 total Td's on the year and he's an excellent receiving back. He did all this without any threat of a passing game too.

Dude is a rookie. He had one of the rookie RB seasons ever. He epitomizes underrated.

ok, I guess. I hate the Bears and the fact they bragged about some stud RB then looked and it was 3.9 ypc, so I was less than impressed but I guess you're right.

list of underrated Vikings:

TE Visanthe Shiancoe
WR Bobby Wade
RB Chester Taylor
LB EJ Henderson
LB Chad Greenway

I agree with Shiancoe but he's inconsistent but I'll add him

If Bobby Wade scored a couple more touchdowns I'd add him.

EJ Henderson was getting tons of praise after 07.

Greenway is on my list.

Chester Taylor is widely regarded as one of the better backup RB's in the L.

Also I think Jerome Harrison is a nice running back but would it ever be something to see James Harrison run the ball. He'd be on IV after long runs
