Glenn Named as One of the Most Underrated WR By ESPN

Terry Glenn clearly does not get the credit he deserves. Finally though, someone is catching on to just how valuable Glenn is to Dallas, as ESPN’s KC Joyner has listed him as one of the most underrated wide receivers in football. Here are Joyner’s comments, listed on ESPN.com’s Insider section:

Terry Glenn

Terrell Owens gets the most press in Dallas, but the metrics indicate Glenn was the better receiver in 2006, and it wasn’t even close. Glenn had the third-best overall YPA, the ninth-best bomb pass YPA and the seventh-best medium pass YPA.

Contrast that with Owens’ ranking in overall YPA (40th), bomb pass YPA (37th) and medium pass YPA (34th), and it is clear Glenn is the more consistent and explosive receiver. Owens is still a productive player, as evidenced by his 13 touchdowns, but Glenn is the far more reliable receiver.

    He is the most underrated wide receiver in the NFL. This guy is my favorite player in the league. He gets no credit but he puts up big numbers consistently. he doesnt talk. he just does his job. He would talked about as a hall of famer if it werent for a couple of season ending injuries.
