I disagree. Mess was always pretty overrated defensively because of his physical play. People tend to think that physical players are better defensively than they actually are. He's almost complete when you consider goal-scoring vs. playmaking, and finesse vs. toughness, but when it comes down to offense vs. defense, Mess just doesn't add up very well, IMO.
