Overrated Giants (past decade):
Shockey (for the hype he got)
Rolle (considering the money)
David Diehl (5th round draft pick guys)
Madison Hedge**** (heck of a blocker)
Jim Finn (see Hedge**** plus he could run)
David Tyree (one of the best gunners in the NFL his entire career)
Nick Griesen (the original Blackburn)
No other Giant RB there is only 1 other back that put up those numbers Marshall Faulk. Marcus Allen is another that has 10,000 and 5,000 but he played 16 seasons. If Marcus Allen is in the Hall of Fame Tiki should be. Allen is so overrated. 3 1000 yard seasons ,All in his first 4 years.Then he just played a long time after that

Howard was certainly a very good player for the G-Men.

Agreed.....Tiki was alot of things.....overrated was not one of them. This offense would be absolutely sick if we had a guy like Tiki in his prime.

Overrated my ***.
skockey was the most overrated player by far...most underrated was George Marten....
no Richie Seubert in the underrated column ?

Ratings are overrated, or at least they get more recognition than they merit. They do spark some interesting debates and opinions that are posted.
I mostly just read and don't post, but I don't see Frank (or any HOF'ers) as underrated. Being on the old side, I would probably go with Del Shofner or Kyle Rote as underrated - for those who know the names. And I don't see Tiki as being overrated - in my mind he helped establish Coghlin's tenure the first few years. I didn't like the way things ended with Tiki, but I can't agree with the writer's call. I don't do well with negatives, so I don't have an opinion on who really is the most overrated.
