I hesitate to even mention this, but the Sporting News has named Brian Urlacher the most overrated player in the NFL...again (CBS Sportsline crowned Urlacher with the same title back in August). Of course Lovie Smith feels differently, and the Chicago Tribune has a story in today's paper that gives mixed reviews on Urlacher's status based on discussions with more than a dozen NFL scouts.
Personally, I think these things are kind of silly, but I like Tony Kornheiser's take. When it was mentioned the other day on PTI, he asked, "Why is it always the white guys that get named the most overrated?"
While Atlanta's backs and receivers have gotten most of the credit this season, Ben Muth likes what he saw from their offensive line against Seattle -- especially from the guards and center Alex Mack
