    Koa Misi looked good to me after the switch to the 4-3. I think he's still undervalued around here.

    We're paying Carpenter quite a bit but his effortless distance, initial height, and great mechanics are a terrific combo in a kicker. He's not appreciated enough. I got sick watching so many college kickers line up poorly in bowl games. You can tell immediately if it's going to err right right of center or left of center, simply by the lousy alignment, like amateur golfers who invariably aim too far right. College hash marks are wider and countless kickers don't step it off properly from severe angles. They wander back there and merely guess. I can't believe none of the announcers point it out. Several of us play a game in Las Vegas sportsbooks, betting tourists on whether the kick will err left of center or right of center. You can watch him line up and set the price in your head immediately. Then the tourist will believe he's getting a bargain if you give him 6/5 on what looks like 50/50, but you know damn well it's easily 2/1 likelihood or greater. The only problem is sometimes when it's virtually smack in the middle and there are arguments over whether it was slightly left or slightly right.

    Historically, Bill Stanfill is one of the best players in franchise history but you'd never know it based on how little recognition he receives.

    I agree OV was a monster when they gave him playing time. And he did not get much.

    Love the mention of Fasano - definitely underrated and you put it perfectly - if he was "just another piece of the puzzle" on a contender his skill set as a #2 TE would be invaluable... but on this Dolphins team everyone wants to throw him away.

    I don't think Clemons is underrated, though. He doesn't make a lot of mistakes and is a pretty consistent tackler, but I don't think he is all that great either. He is about average and I think he is widely considered to be that.

    Most underrated dolphin Karlos Dansby to me. Yes he is way overpaid but he is still a damn good linebacker easily the best on our team.

    I haven't heard a single person say anything negative about Dansby this year other than his contract is too big - little off on that one.

    Plenty of people have said he is overrated and the only people that overrated him were some people on this board when we signed him. We decided to outbid ourselves for a nice middle linebacker so not really his fault we decided to make him one of highest paid middle linebackers and overpaid. I cant really think of one player on roster that is really that underrated to me besides Dansby. I do think the league underrates Brandon Fields.

    Uh, his performance last season was very underwhelming - they were right to call him overrated relative to the contract and status he had. This year, he was in much better shape, performed much better, and was considered as such. I didn't see anyone call him overrated this year.

    By the way, he is the 3rd highest paid LB in the NFL.

    Oh like I have said I agree he is overpaid but Ireland has a history of out bidding himself for free agents. Karlos Dansby, Jake Grove, Gibril Wilson, Richard Marshall, justin smiley.

    I would have to say Odrick and misi for me are underrated alittle. Both had pretty good years and odrick is kinda playing out of postion and still did ok.
