They are doing this thing on NFL.com where they are selecting every team’s most underrated and most overrated player. Adam Rank selected his underrated choices ad Air Coryell and Chuck Muncie. Those guys definitely deserve a lot more attention and credit than they are given.
For the overrated player, the dude on the left (no clue what his name is, even after he said it) selected Antonio Gates. ALL TIME MOST OVERRATED? I know I have gone on about Gates being overrated before, but that was for last season, not of ALL-TIME!!!!
Then he goes on and says that there are more athletic and more fit tight ends in the league today. More fit and more athletic? That is an insult to the greatness of Antonio Gates.
Athletic? That dude is smoking something. Antonio Gates was a pretty good basketball player before becoming a stud football player.
Dude got’s to be joshing! I understand that the overrated player is going to have some sort of controversy no matter what, but it shouldn’t be Antonio Gates.
