Top 3 underrated and overrated 49ers

Willis - this should get you fired up! LOL. But going by the definition of overrated he is considered as having a God-like status around the league and plays in a defense that is designed around him. That said, he's not a leader or a game changer. He's a tremendous tackler and will malke the occasional play but lets be real here - he's 100% freed to run to the ball carrier and play down hill. Aside from him not wanting the dot on his helmet he's also very soft in coverage and that had been a big problem for this team. In NT, he IS a God. He is not a game-changer but a very good LB that plays in a perfect system (sort of like Ben Rothlisberger who also was very overrated his first few years in the league). Will Willis become that Ray Lewis-type of leader? Probably not b/c that's not his temperment. Will he get better in coverage? Hopefully. I love Willis but he is overrated some.


Have at it folks...

Patrick Willis will bring a championship to the city of San Francisco, and when it happens, your opinion will change, and NT will continue to worship #52, The God of all man-beasts.

btw your RJF comment is hilarious!

LOL. I figured you guys would like that one!

Web Zone underrated:
1) Michael Lewis - Solid, dependable veteran.
2) Adam Snyder - Very valuable in the Saints game.
3) Nate Clements - He has always been a very good player.

Web Zone overrated:
1) Patrick Willis - He is not a God.
2) Ahmad Brooks - He has been slightly over hyped.
3) Alex Smith - I don't know who else to pick. Every player on the entire team gets trashed by the web zone except for Patrick Willis of course.

National underrated:
1) Ray McDonald - Don't tell his agent, but he could be an All-Pro in a 4-3.
2) Anthony Davis - He is turning into a star in a short time frame.
3) Isaac Sopoaga - A wonderful, powerful, valuable player.

National overrated:
1) Dashon Goldson - Yes, he is a good player.
2) Manny Lawson - Overrated, because of the perception that he is our best pass rusher.
3) Eric Heitmann - Yes, he is a good player.

For every good play Goldson makes he gets burnt 2 or 3 times. Hes better fitted for strong safety and I wouldn't be upset if next year our safeties are Reggie Smith and Taylor Mays.
Haralson just sucks and Ahmad Brooks should start instead of him since his OLB position is the primary pass rusher spot. Manny Lawson is way better than Parys.
N
orris is kinda useless to this team. The offense looks so much better with Walker or Byham in there than him.
I want to see more 4 receiver sets with Crabs, Morgan, Zeigler, and Hill out there. This board is pretty split on him but he's always looked good when given a chance and that is a fact.

Good stuff. I missed Ray McDonald on my list. If he can ever stay healthy, he would be a very good player in a 4-3. Not sure he would be All-Pro but he would see some Pro Bowls for sure. Great quickness and strength. We agree on Sopoaga. With Franklin getting all the attention with his franchise tag and hold out, Sop has been under the radar.

The O-Line is underrated because it made Alex Smith look like a serviceable QB last night
