I think this sums it up the best:

@VernonDavis85, Forbes says you're No. 9 overrated player in NFL. Did they know that since 2009 u have 29 TD, tied for most by NFL TE?
Forbes is now immediately un-credible for any further thing it says.
BS. He's worth every penny. Idiots.

They are wrong about VD, Joseph and McFadden IMO
Forbes and their silly lists.
Vernon does not belong on that list. But putting that knee-jerk reaction aside...'

Neither should Johnathan Joseph be listed, he's pretty damn awesome. But other than that (and assuming that they're looking at QBs separately, which they should) it's actually not a bad list. Some pretty astute picks in my opinion, aside from Vernon and Joseph.

Big dollars to an injury-prone RB make McFadden's inclusion defensible, in my opinion. That's where Forbes comment about Davis (getting paid for only putting out one good year) actually applies.
yeah, because when i think of football, i think of Forbes.
LOL.
Fibbes
This has to be the dumbest thing I think I've ever read. I am now stupider reading this.
lmao, He is not overpaid, he is right at his slot, maybe looking at an extension, since he is signed through 2015. Plus Davis is Alex's key weapon along with new emerger Crabtree.

haha. THIS!
One tidbit, I find it funny, Zach Miller, making 9M, isn't considered overpaid, he hasn't done crap for Seattle.
