I never said he was underrated per se. I just meant said that alot of people think he is overrated when he is closer to being underrated.
And I dont know how you expect more out of him. This past season he has shown that he can be a top3 CB when matched up man to man constantly. 1 TD given up, 5 interceptions, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 TD. And he is only 24. If Mike Smith continues to employ a man to man scheme, I only see him getting better.
And I dont agree with the penalties given to him during that game. the 37 yard PI was a smart move seeing that it would have been a 70 yard TD. The other 2 I dont agree with. Since when does shoving a player in the chest become 'Unnecessary roughness" ? And when Smith and Hall are both up on each other how come only HE gets called for unsportsmanlike conduct? Whatever. I have been over my opinion of the penalties already and I dont want to do it again.
He's the leader of the next great class of NFL players."
