All Underrated Team

15 posts in this topic

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)

    • Extremly early prediction...
      With my changes, I have 53.  Players with bold/underline with a ' - ' in front of them mean I removed them from the OPs roster and players with a ' + ' were my additions.  I axed Todman, Boyce, Tyms, Kerr, McNary, and Okine.  I added Griswold, Blythe, Haeg, McClure, Thompson and Bates.  I think the OP had Good listed 2x and I just removed one of them.   I put Miller on the PS, as at this point I don't think he's much more than a project, but he is pretty freakish in terms of his size.   I tend to agree with you on Maggit, and won't be shocked if we IR him -- double digit sacks in the SEC is a big deal, and without having seen how healthy he will get, or how well he will play after a year off, I could see us running the risk of having him scooped by another team if he is left on our PS.  The guy has upside, for sure... whether he can return to health and remain healthy is yet to be seen.   Thompson is a guy who produced and was a football player in college, but I think his tests are what killed him (he ran a 4.95/4.99 in the 40, which I could see turning teams off).  I am hoping he turns out to be good -- Syracuse has produced some good DE/LBs in the past (see Freeney, Chandler Jones), so here's hoping we got lucky with Thompson.   I don't know what to think about Herrara, I think he has potential, but don't know about it translating.  I kept him on my PS, as I think for the team to keep him there last year and bring him back this year says something.   I am hoping we can generate a pass rush this year and Butler can get back to being the slot CB he was a couple years back, when I thought he was one of the best slots in the game.  Outside of Davis, we don't really know what we have in the other CBs (I'm thinking Robinson is an upgrade by default to Toler), and I don't think we've seen enough of Smith or Mitchel to really know what to expect.
    • Nate Irving Lost 20 Pounds?
      If we're talking about ILB talent on the roster,  I think the name Morrison should be mentioned.    I don't know how much he'll play this year,   but I think his future in Indy is very, very bright.  
    • Chime in Colt Fans From FL, TN and TX
      I'm in California, so I can't provide any direct commentary from the perspective of a Jags fan, Texans fan, or a Titans fan, however, I do chat on the Jaguars forums from time to time. There was a thread mentioning who was the most hated team and the Colts were among the most mentioned teams, along with the Titans, and Patriots. It seams that people from all over the U. S do not like the Patriots.   Within the AFC, we were the most hated for obvious reasons. We were the king of the hill for so long, and still are, IMO.
    • Chime in Colt Fans From FL, TN and TX
      In Houston the Colts are number one on the Texans hit list and for some reason they are licking their chops for the upcoming season. What about the Jags and Titans townspeople? Are The Colts the most hated their as well? 
    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      They were a pretty good team last year with lots of injuries and a revolving door of mediocre QB's.   I think Brock is pretty good and will play hard for them.    The defense is one of the best in the NFL.   Lamar Miller is a very good RB.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
