  • Overrated and Underrated teams

    Here is my top three for both overrated and underrated. Read em and weap.

    OVERRATED:

    Dallas Cowboys: Lot of ppl are putting this team in the superbowl. For they do that they have to show me they can win a playoff game. Until then I will see them as overrated and overheiped

    Oakland Raiders: People have this team winning atleast .500 games. Really? Didn't I hear that last year and the year before that. People asume that McFadden is going to be a one man team or something. Grabbing a franchise back did for New Orleans and is working for Minnesota. I think they will improve but not at .500

    Jacksonville Jaguars: Colts fans must be so sick of hearing how this team is going to take the division from them. Because they almost derailed the Pats in the Division Round and stockpilled thier D-line with a few DEs in the draft and David Gerrard should be better in his 2nd year as a starter (people assume). Its like what retired WWE great Ric Flair says, "To be the man, you have to beat the man". So dont give the Jags the title yet.

    UNDERRATED

    Buffalo Bills: I think this is one of a few teams that will turn some heads this year. They have a young franchise QB, they drafted a monster CB and then took WR James Hardy who my Bucs passed on. They will not fight for the AFC East crown but I expect this team to be there in January. Why? they play in the easiest division in the NFL, they play the NFC West and the AFC West. In the AFC West only one team will come out that division, and the AFC North and South teams will be beating each other up. People for some reason dont see the potential this team has.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Obviously winning your division does not get you a lot anymore. People say the reason we won it was becuase of are "veterans". Guess what are rookies and other young players pitched in as well. Im also sick of hearing how Garcia and Galloway are going to fall apart. Didn't we hear that last year. Seems to me the Bucs play thier best ball when people doubt them and so called experts have them finishing 5-11 or 4-12 when we are a lot better. Last year and the 05-06 season we were doubted and how did that work out??? The saints are favored to win this division but like i said about the Colts and Jags. To be the champ you have to beat the champ.

    Washington Redskins and Arizona Cardinals: I could not make up my mind on this one so I will do them both. Like the Bucs and Bills, they are disrespected. Both teams have the fire power on offense to put up huge numbers and blow away defenses. Both are young and I expect both to be around in January. The Redskins new if they wanted a chance at the NFC East crown they would need the offense (see the 2008 NFL Draft). The Cardinals have trouble with getting Matt Leinhart in line. All you need is a little paycheck cutting and he will be around. They need to start paying him for his services on the field not off the field. It would not suprise me if both teams won thier divisions. Like i said they have the talent and people do not see that.

    Im pretty sure the redskins are one of the oldest teams in the league. I dont think they are underrated but they i agree that they are disrespected alot.

        Why you gotta kick us when we're down? Peter King just rated us 30th. I don't know who you have been reading, I haven't read anybody who is objective say the Raiders will be .500. I mean I think they can, but that doesn't count for them being overrated. Jeez, lose 61 games in 5 years AND get called overrated? That is rough.

        Funny how your team won it's division, and is underrated though. Also the Bills have been getting some love, I don't think their underrated, from what I read they are expected to do well. King has them rated 13th in the league, that's not bad with a 2nd year QB.

        EDIT: Oh, I see from your liked/disliked thread why you put the Raiders in there. Your own team is underrated and a team you admit you dislike is overrated, hmmmm.

          In all fairness Garcia and Galloway did fall apart at times during last season. When Garcia went down it wasn't too much of a problem because we were pretty much guaranteed first place in the South, but when Galloway was hurt against the Giants it really hurt us.

            thus is the reason u are my arch nemesis. The Jets are not overrated. The Giants are overrated because they aren't good enough to win a superbowl even though they did!! They will never do it again!! NEVER!!

              I think the Jets are a bit overrated this season. They got a lot of new guys but it they have to play together first. It kind of reminds me when the Giants brought in McKenzie, Pierce, and Burress in one offseason.

              And I think people are severely overrating the effect someone like Calvin Pace is going to have on the team. They talk here in NY like he is actually a great player. Extremely average he is. But I think they hit a HR in the draft with Gholston. Not so sure about Keller. And I'm not sure about the Jenkins trade or Woody as a longtime RT. He is better suited at G in my opinion.

                  Overrated:

                  The NFL is a QB/schedule league where the schedule gives 7 or 8 new teams a year a reasonable chance to make the playoffs and a franchise QB practically guarantees the teams they play for an opportunity to make the playoffs every year.

                  So when I look at the playoff teams that made the playoffs last year who lacks a true franchise QB, I can see that Green Bay, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and Washington are almost assured of not making the playoffs this coming season.

                  Green Bay - Obviously a tough situation with Favre retiring.
                  Jacksonville - I just don't think Garrard is good enough to put a guarantee beside Jacksonville's team. They will get a serious challenge from Houston.
                  Tampa Bay - Simply not good enough to make it 2 years in a row.
                  Washington - Team was built by Gibbs to suit his style and his retirement will be felt.

                  Underrated:

                  Teams with a reasonable chance to make the playoffs in the AFC would include Houston, Cleveland, Cincinnati, New York and Oakland. Teams with a reasonable chance to make the playoffs from the NFC are Arizona, Minnesota, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.

                  Houston - Not special at QB but an improving team that will challenge Jacksonville for the #2 spot.
                  Cleveland - could go either direction but if Anderson is the real deal, they will be a very tough team.
                  Cincinnati has Palmer and that makes them dangerous but is Lewis the HC who can get the job done.
                  New York - Everybody loves Buffalo but Edwards is only in his 2nd year and may be a year away. If Pennington can stay healthy the Jets have a shot. They are a young team but Clemens isn't the answer.
                  Oakland - I'm probably a year ahead of myself but if Russell develops, this team is going to be soon among the Pats and the Indys of the league. Russell has all the natural abilty in the world but is his head screwed on right. Time will tell.
                  Arizona - Everything is in place for a quantum leap forward if Leinart is ready to produce.
                  Minnesota - Can AD stay healthy, that has always been his problem? Will Jackson continue to grow? We'll have to see, but if both happen, then they'll be in the playoffs.
                  New Orleans - This team could take the next step and begin to dominate the NFC South. Defense should be improved after a great trade up to get Ellis and they should rank among the better teams in the NFC.
                  Philadelphia - It all starts and ends with McNabb. If he can stay healthy, they are as good as anyone but that is a big if.

                    Overrated when the Cowboys went 13-3 last year?

                    No one is putting them in the Superbowl, all i've heard is that they're the team to beat, and you know what? They are. They were the team to beat last year, and they got beat. So what. They ran into a buzzsaw with the Giants, and it doesn't hurt to say that your team lost to the Superbowl Champs... The same team that beat the, at the time, 18-0 Patriots.

                    I don't understand how you think the Jaguars are overrated. Who exactly is crowning them the Division champs? I'd like to see some links or sources for that because everyone has always known that the Colts are the team to beat. They have a very good team, with an improved defensive line.. which was their achilles heal last season.

                    The Cardinals underrated? They've underperformed every single year that they've been hyped, so i don't get where you see this underrated junk. They have an ancient quarterback and an aging running back. I doubt "Leinhart" beats out Warner, and i don't see their offensive line improving much. They're gonna have a rookie and an under-performing first round pick starting at CB so teams are gonna go at them all year. I'd be surprised if they finish over .500

                      Im not really sure that the Packers are overated.... They did make it to the NFC Championship game last year and almost made the superbowl. This team was more then Favre, he wasnt the only reason we did as good as we did. I think everyone understands that the loss of Favre hurts but no one has any idea how Rodgers will peform. No one is saying we are even going back to the NFC Championship. I wouldnt call us overated now...maybe midway through the season if we are awful but not now.


                      Also Minny underated? Im pretty sure there not underated/overated, right about in the middlle of the pack and lots of people have them claiming the division.

                        How the hell are we over rated? We won the superbowl, then highest level there is. If there is a rating, and winning the superbowl is the highest, we hit it! We won. And not being good enough to win the superbowl? Are you new to football? We played with the Pats toe to toe in the regular season, and we played them toe to toe in the superbowl.

                        Stop whining, because it was a the worse scenerio as a Jet fan. To have a division rival in the superbowl, VS the Giants, your neighbor.

                          Overrated:

                          Arizona Cardinals - It seems like every year for the past couple seasons I have been hearing how they are the dark horse for the NFC west leader. Every year, they have a great draft, get the right coaches, say the right things. And every year they disappoint. I can see how on paper they are the most talented team in the west, but until they make it to the playoffs and win the division I am going to stop listening to the hype.

                          Tampa Bay Bucs - Ok. They made the playoffs last year. But it was the NFC SOUTH, probably the weakest division in the league last year. Any team with a proper running game could have gone in and dominated those defenses last year. This is a team that has stars aging at QB, WR, CB, and LB and their #1 RB is coming off of a nasty injury. Plus, the Saints are back in business and the Panthers will have Delhomme back.

                          I am a little confused to your point, because you said that coaches switched to this scheme because of draft day advantages, but then you contradict that by say that the draft advantage has dried up.

                          Underrated

                          Seattle Seahawks - As much as I hate to give credit to another NFC west team this team is overlooked every year and has underrated players up and down this roster. Hasselback is one of the best qb's in the league, Branch is a former superbowl MVP with a world of talent and that defense is just stocked with talent.

                          Green Bay Packers - Even without Farve. They still have Jordyzz Nelson.
