New Giants TE Brandon Myers cracks ‘All-Underrated’ team

New Giants tight end Brandon Myers was one of 26 players to be selected to the NFL.com’s All-Underrated Team earlier this week.

With the Oakland Raiders last season, Myers hauled in 79 passes, the highest mark in the AFC.

Big Blue signed Myers to a one-year contract within days of losing unrestricted free agent Martellus Bennett to the Chicago Bears.

Also on the list is former Giants safety Kenny Phillips, who inked a deal with NFC East rival Philadelphia earlier this month.

Phillips was a candidate to receive the franchise tag in New York, but after the organization opted against it, the safety agreed to a one-year contract to play in first-year coach Chip Kelly’s new defensive backfield.

Knee injuries hampered Phillips’ 2012 season, limiting him to seven games. In 2010 and 2011, Phillips averaged 60 tackles and totaled five interceptions and 16 passes defended.

The rest of the rosters include:

Offense: QB Cam Newton (Carolina), RB Stevan Ridley (New England), FB Marcel Reese (Oakland), WR Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh), WR Mike Williams (Tampa Bay), T Duane Brown (Houston), G Evan Mathis (Philadelphia), C John Sullivan (Minnesota), G Jon Asamoah (Kansas City), T Gosder Cherilus (Indianapolis), PK Robbie Gould (Chicago), KR/PR Marcus Sherels (Minnesota).

Defense: DE Jason Hatcher (Dallas), DE Charles Johnson (Carolina), DT Kyle Williams (Buffalo), DT Henry Melton (Chicago), OLB Philip Wheeler (Miami), OLB Justin Houston (Kansas City), ILB Daryl Washington (Arizona), ILB Sean Lee (Dallas), CB Ike Taylor (Pittsburgh), CB Greg Toler (Indianapolis), S Reshad Jones (Miami), P Brandon Fields (Miami).

Still, the Islanders have not been on the winning side of a handshake in nearly 21 years!

A typical Pee Brained Ragsh!tz fan. Much like the team itself who always boast but never fail in coming up short.
Thanks for the find ivo leggi

Just Too small and over matched-we just do not have the horses plain and simple and the coach is minor league

Ah yes,,, there are horses for courses, but unfortunately we have no recourse when our horse can't handle the course...

Our Quarter Horses just don't have the stamina of the rest of the leagues Arabians.  Our Shetlands certainly can't compete with everyone else's Clydesdales, and our Appaloosas fail to match their Lipizzaners.  And to top it all off, our stable boy has no idea which saddle goes on which horse, the stable manager is a buffoon and the ranch owner a crook.  There is nothing left to say except this entire situation is truly just a pile of horse crap...

I must respectfully decline said nomination due to circumstances beyond my control.  Having said what I said I  now realize that any notoriety gained hereabouts with prose such as that above, smacks of an allegiance to a dead horse and I am not quite ready to declare the horse dead just yet.  Soon perhaps, but as we all know, stranger things have happened.  You never can tell the winner of a race until the race is won.  A horse with limited breeding, a horse with no respect, a horse of a different color, in 2009 a 50-1 shot, Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby.  So, you never can tell, even if it appears that this race is already over...
