Brodney Pool Makes an All Underrated Team

Yahoo's Shutdown Corner put together an All Underrated Team, and Brodney Pool is on the defensive squad.

Pool added his contributions to Rex Ryan's dominant defense with some amazing stats of his own. In 30 targeted passes, Pool allowed just 13 completions, racked up 11 passes defensed, and allowed no touchdowns at all. Mikell was also great against the run, ranking in the top 10 in Run Stop Rate among safeties.

It seemed to all click for Brodney in the Miami game. Mike Pettine had called him out in the media before the game. Pool was a different player after that point and started making plays. A week later, injuries forced him to play more strong safety, where he really thrived. Jim Leonhard made a lot of plays near the line when he was healthy, which reduced Brodney's chances. Pool took advantage of the greater opportunities once Leonhard left the lineup and provided better coverage.

Everything I see here strengthens my hope Pool is back with the Jets in 2011.
