Question Most Underrated Player in the N.F.L.

Who do you guys think is the most underrated player in the National Football League?

I'll pick Wide Receiver David Boston of the Arizona Cardinals. He's not know much because he plays down in Phoenix. But going into last week's game he had lead the league with five 100-yard receiving games including 4 in a row before the Detroit Lions held him to 80 yards receiving.

Curtis Martin. This guy's awesome, leading rusher in the league, and he doesn't get any recognition like Faulk does.

A very underrated player is Buffalo's Eric Moulds. Same could be said about Hines Ward from Pittsburgh.

Tom Brady...

For all he's accomplished & being a SB QB, he's gettin' about as much attention compared to other QBs as a Brad Johnson. lol

Marvin Harrison? Ask anyone on any of the NFL shows and they will tell you that Harrison is the best in the AFC and one of the three or four best in the game.

Tedy Bruschi gets my vote. The guy makes more big plays for the Pats is always around the ball and one of the team leaders in tackles and never gets any love from the media.

Brandon Stokley and Reggie Wayne. I can't think of 2 better receivers opposite a star like Mravin Harrison in the league. The number 2 and 3 receivers for the Colts are having a great start.
Next, I'd throw in Shaun Alexander.

How about Javon Walker? He only leads the league with 535 receiving yards.

Has it ever occurred to you that they might look good only because the defenses focus on Harrison, leaving them more open? I think they're good, but put them as a No. 1 and I doubt they will put up the same numbers.

That's a very good pick. Plus, he has one of the best football names.

Walker is really emerging as Favre's best target. I was skeptical when the Packers took him back in 2002, but that risk is really paying off unlike his ex-Florida State teammate Jamal Reynolds.
