    Who is the most Overrated and Underrated players on the team.

    Over:Drew Bennett-To me he hasn't been catching as many as he used to.

    Under:David Givens-Everyone is saying that we need another WR but we haven't even really seen him yet this year. The only reason he doesn't have the big stats is because Brady threw to everyone.

    Overrated: Vince Young. He's getting tons of hype but he has a long way to go. He has done well for a rookie who came out early from an option offense, but the hype is in overdrive.

    Underrated: David Thornton. He has missed some time with injuries, but he has been excellent when he has been on the field.

    I like Starkiller's too, but for variety's sake...

    Overrated: Haynesworth- This is supposed to be him playing for his second chance? The guy has the skills to make a huge difference, but we haven't seen much of them. Our run d keeps getting gashed, and we need someone to make early stops.

    Underrated- Mawae. This guy has been bringing the line together, and I think he's been a great stabilizing force this season.

    No, it's not stats. It's his command. Last week, for example, he made a ton of rookie mistakes. And he IS a rookie, so I expect that, but the hype is outpacing his play. He makes a number of big plays, which is great, but the consistency isn't there.

    Let's look at the last 5 games. He had horrible games against the Eagles and Jags. Against the Giants he did nothing for 3 quarters before he got hot in the 4th. He ran very well against the Colts, but his passing left a lot to be desired. And in Houston we gloss over his struggles because of the TD run in OT.

    Again, he isn't playing that badly, and he's certainly been ahead of most people's expectations. But the question was about being overrated. And he hasn't lived up to the hype yet.

    Bennett isn't getting thrown to like he used to. Vince isn't using all the plays in the book. They are keeping it simple.

    How can you say someone that has only played one game is underrated? lol

    Are we talking Titans' fans perceptions, or national perception? To me, they are two very different answers.
