All Underrated Team

Half way they the season. Here are a few guys I feel have been underrated by fans and media. I'm currently on my phone, so it'll be short until I get my "team" list going.

Josh Freeman QB.

Roddy White WR

Randall Cobb WR

Percy Harvin WR

Marshawn Lynch RB

Brandon Meyers TE

That's a pretty good list there :) The only one I might swap out would be Harvin...I think he's starting to get the recognition and don't know how much I'd consider him underrated anymore. Two other names I might look at would be Brian Hartline or Danny Amendola. Amendola especially -- he's been a pretty critical part of the Rams' passing game.

Matt Schaub-When people talk about the Texans, they usually talk about the defense or Arian Foster, But Schaub has lead the league in passing yards before

Donald Brown-I will get some flack for this but who cares its my list, here is a guy that has only 1 fumble his entire career that came in his rookie year, he also has averaged 4.1 ypc for his career on limited carries before seemingly (and inexplicably) being deemed not good enough to carry the load

Stevie Johnson-Has had 2 1000 yard seasons and is on his way with a 3rd with a below average QB

Percy Harvin-Can do it all on offense, he can run the ball, Punt Return, Kick Return, Has yet to have a 1000 yard season but looks to be well on his way

Brandon Stokley-Has helped Peytons transition to the Broncos immensely this year in my opinion, 5 receiving touchdowns, Has 1 other 1000 yard season with the Colts back in 2004, His overall stats are not eye popping and he is not the most gifted athlete out there but would be valuable to any team even at 36 which is more then some in that same age range who at one time were the best in the game could say

Heath Miller-Not eye popping numbers but is consistent and has 37 touchdowns in his career with less athletic ability then a Gronkowski or Hernandez

Amendola is one of the most underrated WR in the league IMO. He is a security blanket for Bradford and never seems to drop balls(This season). To me he is a poor mans Reggie Wayne and only because he is a great route runner and has some pretty solid hands.

Harvin gets a fair but of recognition and you could argue the same for White. FS should be Bethea and one of the MLBs should be Freeman, who has played lights out this year

Josh Freeman Tampa Bay QB? He was atrocious last year and is just starting to maybe turn the corner this year.

Currently:

4th in TDs

10th in Rating

4th in Yds per ATT

2nd Yards per Comp

4th Adj yds per Att

8th in Int%

3rd in TD %

Was 4-12 Last Yr. currently 6-4.

I'd say he's playing pretty darn good and not getting any credit.

Perhaps cause they have Doug Martin, Vincent jackson, and a new coach. Going from terrible to decent doesnt make you underrated.

Or his previous coach was awful, considering he did well the year before.

Vincent Jackson. The guy who's never had more than 1200yd or 9 TDs in a potent SD off? He's on track for 1400ish and 11...his first yr in a new system (along with Freeman).

Doug Martin has played great. Perhaps because Freeman is keeping def honest?

OFFENSE

QB -- Josh Freeman (Having an awesome year, with not many great targets)

RB -- Stevan Ridley (Big reason why the Pats O is the best in the league)

RB -- Mikel Leshoure (He's playing well and is showing that he has a lot of potential)

WR -- Randall Cobb (Quietly become the most reliable receiver on that team)

WR -- Danny Amendola (Has fantastic hands and is one of the best slotbacks in the league)

TE -- Heath Miller (Best blocking TE in the league and is showing he's a reliable target)

OT -- Jared Veldheer and Anthony Davis (Veldheer continues to be phenomenal and still no one knows him... I really didn't like Davis last year and thought he was bad, but he took many big strides this year)

OG -- Mike Iupati and Adam Levitre (Iupati is having an outstanding year and is a big reason why that running game is so good... Levitre is having a solid season blocking for Spiller)

C -- John Sullivan (Can match up against anyone and beat em... that's the guy you want)

DEFENSE

DE -- Brian Robison and Cameron Wake (Wake is a beast that always gets to the QB... Robison doesnt get credit b/c of Allen, but he's great at stopping the run, and he occasionally gets to the QB.)

DT -- Cory Redding and Geno Atkins (Redding is great in both pass and run situations... Atkins is the best DT in the league, but I almost didn't put him on due to his increase in popularity... honorable mention to Henry Melton)

OLB -- Aldon Smith and Justin Houston (I'll use 3-4 OLBs for now... Smith is quietly having an oustanding year for the Niners and is generating a lot of their pass rush... Houston has 7 sacks and is becoming a good that should be double teamed)

ILB -- Colin McCarthy/James Laurinaitis (TIE) (Heart and soul of the Titans D... He rarely misses tackles...Laurinaitis doesn't miss tackles either and is great in coverage)

CB -- Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner (Both play on the same team, and no one knows either... both are turning into top 10 CBs in this league, and form by far the best duo)

FS -- Jarius Byrd (Having the best season out of any free safety in the league, and still no one knows about him)

SS -- Kam Chancellor (Very physical and very tough... he makes plays and has great "downhill" speed)

K -- Matt Bryant (Makes from everywhere and is clutch)

P -- Brandon Fields/Patty Mac (TIE) (Fields is the better punter, but Patty Mac makes the key tackles; best tackling punter in the history of the game)

COACH

Head Coach -- Mike Smith (Sure, very obvious choice because he has the best record in the league, but tell me the last time someone spoke about him and praised him... doesn't get enough credit)

Offensive Coordinator -- Rick Dennison (Has one of the best RBs in the league in Foster, a solid QB in Schaub and one of the best O-lines in the league... and a big reason why is him)

Defensive Coordinator -- Vic Longio (No one ever talks about him, but he's quietly built the most intimidating D in the league in SF)

    • I have to be honest, when inlooked at the list of name , at each position, that he kept on his roster, i really feel better about this team. i'm not making light of our injuries at all. But seriously:   Qb: if #12 goes down, does it matter? I worry about Our depth here rb: whether 4 or 5, interesting. If OL gives anything, this is a nice group OL: when you see the list, looks very promising (ignoring injuries of course).  te:above average wr: very interesting and promising group dl: very exciting possibilities lb: question mark in my eyes safety: if healthy, i like group cb: if healthy, this group could be special, imo. k/p:. We're good.    Is it just me, or does this look like a promising and exciting mix, overall.  Of course, i'm ignoring injuries, but still.
    • I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.
    • I've always felt it should be cut to two games. The starters can play a majority of game one like they do game 3, then the second game for mostly backups like game 4 is.    At the very least it should be cut down to 3 games. Theres no reason to have 4 or 5 imo. Its risking more injuries, plus the common fan doesn't give a damn about 4 or 5 preseason games. 
    • Hi, Colts fans!    Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.   Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.   Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.   Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.   Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!
    • Interesting. i kind of like the options and depth that gives us at BOTH rb and wr. is Bray elible for ps?  And does anyone here think Bray is noticeably better or higher upside than Rogers or Smith? i've liked the burst from Rogers, the twitchyness.  He kinda reminds me of Tereance Wilkens for some reason.  To me (small sample), Smith has looked smoother and more polished while Rogers looks like he can take it to house at any minute. Perhaps its was just the impact of that 1 big play he had. does anyone think we would look back and regret cutting Bray?  With new kickoffs, punt returners may be better on kick returns actually.
