I'm back after a brief vacation to Quebec, which is beautiful this time of year. Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July celebrations.
Pete Prisco at CBS Sportline has his most overrated/underrated NFL players listed by team. Guess who Prisco has as overrated:
Ben Roethlisberger, Roy Williams, Michael Vick, Jon Lynch, Corey Dillon, Drew Brees, and Edgerrin James.
Prisco's list is a little odd considering, just last month, he listed players like Roethlisberger and James as top 50 players. Most of his rankings were silly, and it prompted us to write our own "Screw Pete Prisco's Top 50" NFL Players List. Prisco's comments about Roethlisberger are the most inconsistent. In his overrated/underrated column, he writes about Roethlisberger:
Makes no sense.
For the Colts, he writes:
Overrated: Safety Mike Doss goes into the season as the starter opposite Bob Sanders. But the Colts have to do everything they can to replace him. Doss is a liability in coverage, which shows up in a big way.
Underrated: Defensive tackle Raheem Brock doesn't get a lot of due, but shows up and plays hard each week. He moves inside from end this year, which would seem like a natural fit. Teams need players like this.
Mike Doss, on the other hand, couldn't cover my 60-year-old aunt out of the backfield. Prisco got this one right. The others though...
