Agree or disagree?

Underrated:
Fred Smerlas, NT, 1979-1989
Butch Byrd, CB, 1964-1970
Howard Ballard, RT, 1988-1993
Kenneth Davis, RB, 1989-1994
Aaron Schobel, DE, 2001-2009

Overrated:
Drew Bledsoe, QB, 2002-2004
Don Beebe, WR, 1989-1994
Peerless Price, WR, 1999-2002, 2006-2007
Joe Ferguson, QB, 1973-1984
Shane Conlan, LB, 1987-1992

In the video clip Adam Rank disagrees with Beebe as being overrated. He also suggests Joe Cribbs and Steve Tasker as underrated players.

I agree with Tasker being underrated. You don't get the nickname "Special Teams Master" just because it rhymes with your name lol.

As for the list, I disagree with Beebe being on it. As for Bledsoe, he may be overrated in regards to his career with Buffalo, but he had a great career overall; One that not many get the chance to have.

This is an interesting concept for debate, but there are alot of factors that come into this, the biggest one being opinion. Everyone has one, and not everyone will have the same.

Most definitely.

I disagree with Joe Ferguson being on the list. They talk about him throwing picks against the Chargers in the 1980 playoffs, but they fail to mention how he played the entire game with an injured ankle. An injury that he played with in week 16 against the 49ers to get them in the playoffs in the first place. Afterwards it was revealed his ankle was pulled, sprained, torn, and had a cracked bone.
