I don't know if I would consider him over-rated but I hated watching Gerald Willhite try to carry the ball without falling down.

Why Al Denson? Big play WR with two double digit TD campaigns and averaged 16.4 yards per catch during his career.

He was the Broncos best wideout between Lionel Taylor and Haven Moses.

It never ceases to amaze me how people get these huge hard ons for the flavor of the month but continue to disparage people who produce for years, without complaint, despite being jerked around constantly by the organization.

I'll agree with this. I don't know how people can hate on D.J. with the amount of times he's had to learn new positions, with NEW D/C's and a **** POOR DEFENSE around him.

I know people may rag on John Madden (myself included). But he's quoted as saying the only High School player he's ever seen in his LIFE that he believed could make the jump from High School to the NFL was... yep, D.J. Williams.

D.J. is way underrated...

As for overrated... hmm... that's harder to be honest. I might say Clinton Portis...

While he was ****ing amazing for us, overall he's been a bust for the Redskins.

I knew you would be the one who would be most offended by that.

DJ doesn't get sacks. He doesn't get interceptions. He doesn't force fumbles. He doesn't shed blocks well. He is just fast. DJ got a lot of hype early in his career but he still hasn't lived up to it. Without Al Wilson he has been nothing but average IMO.

tough since I respect most of the players I put on my list but
Vance Johnson
Sammy Winder
Mike Anderson
Darrien Gordon (as a PR -- guy broke a few for TD's but he ran 50 yrds backward in the other 8 attempts)
John Mobley
Micheal Dean Perry -- I'd still never forgive his lazy ass effort
Anthony Miller

Was Brian Griese ever overrated?

Although I must admit, I was on his bandwagon after that infamous Raider game.

Wow I looked it up and you're right ... I withdraw that one.

My recollection (I was just a kid) is that he was so full of himself he could barely hold his is head upright.

I don't think CP has been a bust for the Redskins at all.

For the Skins:

1315 yards rushing-7 total TDs
1516 yards rushing-11 total TDs
523 yards rushing-7 total TDs
1262 yards rushing-11 total TDs
1487 yards rushing-9 total TDs

In 5 years, I would not consider a 1500+ yard season, a 1400+ yard season, a 1300+ yard season, and 1200+ yard season a bust....while averaging 9 TDs a year.

Also John Lynch maybe.

I'm not talented enough at evaluating players, but he was
certainly hyped-up by the bronco media. No sure if it was
earned attention or not.

agreed. plus it has to be noted that for the most part, in Washington, every person in the stadium knew, it was going to be Portis running the ball. he is the focal point of Washington's offense, and is still putting up good numbers.

RYAN TORAIN!!!!!

never before has a more fragile POS gotten more hype than a guy who suffered 2 crazy injuries while only playing in half of a game.

people so quick to jump on this guys nuts because Shanahan and Turner saw something in him. well in my eyes their eye for talent has become blurred, since we have gone into the last few years with, Young, Hall, Bell and Bell, as the guy they felt was best for the team
