lol it's weird cause you guys actually didn't get where I was going with this thread, I guess I didn't state it clearly enough. What I meant was that you know a player's elite when you stop wishing he'd have a good game.... You just know he's gonna have a good game. Anyone on this board worried about Sherman getting beat consistently by a WR? not me, he just erases a receiver and now we are used to it. Everyone is used to Lynch pounding out those good 5 yard runs, and we are spoiled with these players, because while other teams are happy with average CB/RB play, we are so used to elite play there that we get mad when they turn in an average performance. We take these elite guys kinda for granted in that sense.
But, the players who I think are taken largely for granted? I do like that topic a little more actually. Here goes:
Russell Okung definitely
Kam Chancellor nowadays
Max Unger kinda (he is elite, shoulda included him in my OP)
Alan Branch is SO UNDERRATED I swear I never even see his name anymore
Anthony McCoy (no one really notices good blocking)
Sidney Rice (this guy is an borderline elite receiver, and he gets treated like he's average. Hell. No)
That's the guys for me lol. All starters besides Mccoy.
