  1. Exclamation Who are your 3 most OVER-RATED QB'S in the NFL?


    Just to get the ball rolling, I can't stand watching inconsistant play followed by consistant media praise/fanfare for:

    1) Ben Roethlisberger
    2) Eli Manning
    3) Donovan McNabb

    If you ask me i agree they ALL are. I think mcNabb is the best of the bunch but still very inconsistant at times.

    Agreed dude! My pet peave with McNabb is that I can't stand it when he moves in the pocket or scrambles holding the ball with one hand down low next to his hip.

    Lol, I know exactly what you mean and i agree. I think he really could really be great with some adjustments to his mechanics.

  5. 1. Tony Romo (hand me a bucket!)
    2. Eli Manning
    3. Rex Grossman

    underrated?

    1. Brett Favre
    2. Drew Brees
    3. Ben Roethlisberger

    Tom Brady is rated high enough already .

    Tom Brady is the MAN!! I agree that grossman is way over-rated even though he was one of my beloved gators. Brett Favre still continues to amaze me....

    Even though he can't seem to win in Dallas.....hmm. No, you're right, he is awesome. His (NFL all-time) records speak for themselves.

    Me too. I dont like Romo. My profile pics have the QB # on them I like. I mean c'mon lets not forget the greats out of Dallas either, man, like Aikman and Staubach!

  10. Brett Favre is hardly underrated....
    Armed to the teeth.

  11. I disagree about Ben, obviously. HEre is my list

    Overrated
    1. Rex Grossman
    2. Eli Manning
    3. Carson Palmer (big numbers, doesnt win)
    4. Marc Bulger
    5. Phillip Rivers
    6. Donovan McNabb

    Underrated
    1. Drew Brees
    2. Tavaris Jackson (having Adrian Peterson is a huge help)
    3. Derrick Anderson
    4. Jeff Garcia
    5. David Garrard

    I didnt put Brady or Peyton on as they are the known best

    Although Ben is quite gutsy, I've seen just about enough his lateral scrambles when there's virtually no pass rush. That's not to say that our line doesn't break down frequently but my boy has ants in his pants for sure He also underthrows the deep ball, well, just about every time.

    In Ben's defense, I think Arians puts the ball in Ben's hands at the wrong times. Play calling seems to thrwart drives frequently this season, even when both Ben and Willie start to heat up... which in turn, makes both of them look worse at critical times.

    Totally agree with Drew Brees. Now THAT is a QB that has text book mechanics and protects the football.

    Good post Reaper!

    Glad to see a lady who seems to genuinely enjoy the game... even if you're a Dallas fan ...

  14. I think Romo is underrated, if he has a bad game like Sunday Cowboys are in the tank. Other teams can survive without their qb at 100 percent Dallas can't cause Romo drives the boat.

  15. OVERRATED
    McNabb
    Brady(offensive line is the key)
    Favre(Rodgers can do just as good)
    UNDERRATED
    Romo (see last post)
    Kitna

    Ya, I agree. If my team were down by 7 with a minute or 2 to go, I'd have confidence that Romo would give us a shot to tie it up.

    You have an interesting point of view with Farve. He's a likable QB for sure... although, I've always thought it's odd that his receivers get 10 freakin yards behind the defense EVERY SINGLE WEEK. How does that happen?

  17. I disagree about brees Hes a decent qb, but he has lapses in judgement and accuracy. He leaves his recievers in bad spots.

  18. Overrated

    1) Eli manning
    2) jay culter
    3) "big Ben"

    Brady is the man........his offensive line is one of the best but almost all his throws are on the money and perfect spirals....oooohhh and a 65 yard pass the he threw that wasn't lobbed in the air............that speaks for itself...

    Nah. He and the cowboys would not even be close to where they are now without his supporting cast. Bledsoe was better but didnt have the supporting cast that he does, and top that off with a coach who's intent on making full use of the teams depth and resources (wade phillips) vs. the old school 1st-string-only style of Parcells..... you get an ace in the hole.

    I see what you're saying here. Fans just HATE immobile quarterbacks because they don't make for exciting SportsCenter highlights. That being said, being an exciting quarterback doesn't always lend well to carrying your team... for example Mike Vick and Mark Brunell (in his earlier years of course).

    I've always thought that guys like Byron Leftwich, Tommy Maddox, and Drew Bledsoe got a raw deal from fans because of their boring style. All had CANNONS for arms but seemed to have the worst luck with solid careers blemished by errors at crucial times.

  21. I just had a thought... does the entire pedigree of QBs in the NFL just totally suck as a whole? Seriously, we have 3 guys who are consistent with P.Manning, Brady, and Farve. Other guys show bright spots but I'm hard pressed to say ANY of them will be Hall of Fame QBs other than these 3.

    I just can't help but think of ten years ago when I could watch Young, Kelly, Aikmen, Montana, Elway, Marino, Farve in his prime, and a young Kurt Warner in some spectacular aerial assualts in the 90's. Where have all the good QBs gone?

    You forgot: Flutie, Esiason, Simms, Moon, McMahon (J), Staubach, Bradshaw, Theisman, and Namath, to list a few from eras past, some not so long ago.

    The expansion teams haven't quite had time to get their legendary players yet :P .

    (That NFL website is handy, my memory is getting rusty )

    Celc, remember where Arians came from... are you really surprised by his incompetence? Between him and Mo Carthon, my beloved Browns put together some STUNNINGLY ineffective offenses in the last few years. I'm just glad your Steelers took him off our hands. He'll be getting fired no later than the end of next season.

    Enjoy that!

  24. farve
    brady
    romo

    HAHAHA JK

  25. Favre had a few good years (MVP years) but other than that I think he's the most overated QB ever. I'll give you he's one tough mofo and has an absolute cannon but has to make some of THE WORST decisions ever.

    I think Romo is a little over rated and not worth his new contract.

    Then McNabb and McNair. Are they always hurt or does it just seem that way.
