As part of our all-decade week, our Football Outsiders put together a list of the overrated and underrated players of the decade. Here is a look at some of the listed players who played in the AFC West:

Over:

3. Chris Chambers, San Diego
My take:
Chambers has been hurt a lot for San Diego. I don't know if he belongs this high on the list.

9. Dante Hall, Kansas City
My take:
Sure, hall has his shortcomings, but he was a brilliant returner while with the Chiefs. This is a little harsh.

10. DeAngelo Hall, Oakland
My take:
I think he should be much higher on the list. He was exposed in his short Oakland stint.

24. Travis Henry, Denver
My take:
I really don't think the troubled Henry was overrated. I just thought he was a waste of talent.

25. All Denver punters
My take:
Can't argue. What would Shane Lechler be like in the Mile High City?

Under

2. Matt Lepsis, Denver
My take:
I covered Lepsis for four seasons. He was very underrated. He was a terrific player in his prime.

12. Al Wilson, Denver
My take:
At first, I was surprised to see Wilson's name on the underrated list. I thought he was a recognized player. But the fact that Denver's defense has been a disaster since his 2006 career-ending neck injury is a point well taken.

25. Trent Green, Kansas City
My take:
Green was hurt often, but he was, indeed, an effective player when healthy.
