According to this metric, easily:

Of course, this isn't truly 'objective', but where do we fall? Agree with the most underrated?

our overall performance is undershadowed by obscenely awful situational football that has us 2-3 instead of 4-1. i'd say so, yes.

I don't know if you can call us underrated, considering how inconsistent we are.

Well, considering the fact that we should be* undefeated like the Chiefs and Broncos... I'd like to say that we are under rated... But as the HOF coach Bill Parcells says "You are what your record says you are" I'm gonna say that we're not under rated.

Do we have the talent to have a better record? Absolutely!
Do we live up to what we should be? Up to this point no.

We are what our record says we are, no matter how much better we think* this team is.

Hell, we haven't been above .500 in years... Let's get to .500 first and then we'll talk

I don't think we're underrated.

I think we're legitimately just not that good.

Maybe after another offseason of rebuilding (and a new head coach) we'll be better.

Right now? No :(

That's really a tough question to answer objectively.

 

I watch as many NFL games as I can, regardless of who's playing with the Panthers taking priority obviously.

 

But even doing that I don't know any team like I know the panthers, it would really have to be a full time job to say who's the best, underrated or any doing any other kind ranking. 

 

But back to the subject at hand. I think we have enough talent to be a playoff team and can make some noise if we get in. Our biggest problem has been Rivera. That's not to say we are on the level of Denver, New Orleans, NE, K.C or Seattle because were def. not but we aren't too terribly far behind on paper.

In short, the number crunchers love us and the "gut feeling" sportswriters hate us.

 

golden mean, anyone?

I agree with the bolded.  However the bolded has been the norm for 3 years now.  So with that being the norm, I can't say we are underrated since we consistently choke.

I need to see us beat a higher quality team than the Giants, Vikings and - frankly - the Rams before I'll be ready to become more optimistic.

You have to accomplish something to be underrated. Right now we are just the best of the worst. Sunday is a game that this team needs to win and should win, but will probably lose. Every time we take a step forward we take a step back.

According to this metric:  2-3, no, they're not underrated.
