Lists, lists and more lists. The latest NFL-related list comes by way of CBS Sports writer Pete Prisco, who breaks down the most overrated and underrated players on each team across the league. And for Big Blue, that would be defensive end Justin Tuck and tight end Brandon Myers respectively.
However, it's not Tuck being picked as the Giants' most overrated player that really stands out — it's that Prisco believes he's the most overrated player in the entire league.
So who's the most overrated player?
This year's pick is Giants defensive end Justin Tuck. He spent more time doing Subway commercials than playing good football in 2012. He was a definite name-over-game player with just four sacks. There were times on tape where you wondered how he was ever a dominant pass rusher.
Ho hum. Nothing new to see here, just an early start on things.
Granted, Tuck hasn't been himself in either of the last two seasons, but he's come back extremely motivated this offseason and even went as far as to meet with Tony Robbins. And while that doesn't change overrated/underrated status, it shows a new motivation and a renewed dedication from Big Blue's defensive captain.
Still, despite the last two seasons, there are other players around the league like Tim Tebow, DeAngelo Williams, LaRon Landry and, dare we say, Joe Flacco, that are far more deserving of that nod than is Tuck.
