Default Most overrated QB

To help pass the offseason I thought i'd build a Most Over-Rated NFL team...with the help of you fine Steeler fans.

I'll open a poll for the various positions and go from there.

If there is someone missing from the list that you really think would get some votes then feel free to put that in your reply to the thread - then I can get one of the mods to add that option to the poll.

All players must have featured in the 2006 season.

Remember, its not the guy you think is the worst QB, its the guy who gets way too much credit/money for what he brings to his franchise.

So.....its only fair we start with the QB position...I have fair idea who will win this one (and by some distance) but we might aswell throw the poll out there...just in case.

No need to comment, unless you want to....just vote.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Default Re: Most overrated QB

And who will that quarterback be?

The Sissinatti Bungals Carson Palmer?

As a QB that throws the ball,Palmer is the most overrated IMHO.

But I had to vote for Michael Vick.He's a piss-poor passer,just a glorified RB that throws the ball some.

I'm supposed to say Carson Palmer, but it has to be Mike Vick...

Palmer's yard total has increased every year and, though he threw less touchdowns last year than in 2005, his TD/INT ratio isn't bad. 32/12 and 28/13. His completion rating has always been in the 60's.

Vick is just bad. Not only has the NFL failed as making him a poster child, but he's failed as a quarterback. Watching the Falcons offense is like watching Texas U in the Rose Bowl against USC. Any play turns into a QB option. He has only broke 2,500 passing yards once in his career and only played 4 or his 6 seasons because of health. His best season as a QB was probably 2002 when he threw 2,900some yards 16Td 8Int and a 55% pass rating. He may rush for almost 1,000 yards most of the time, but that's not his job. He is a quarterback. Its great that he can create a play when passing routes break down or coverage is tight downfield, but his legs are better than his arm. Cannon, but no finesse. I'm sick of explaining myself, he's the most overrated.

I went with Vick but Young is second. Young cannot throw the ball ether and yet people are putting him up on that high road like Vick. They both can run, and nether can pass worth a crap on a consistent basis.

Exactly....any QB can get 1,000 yards on the ground if their definition of "checkdown" means..."see if the TE is open...then run".

I went with Carson Palmer on this one, as I consider Vick nothing more than a RB playing out of position.

IMHO I disagree.. Bret Favre is a good QB, he just had a bad season, no matter if you are a very talented Quarterback, if you play in a bad team u are not to win many games...that
was the case of 2006 Packers...

My choise would be.. Michael Vick,
a passer/runner remind me to Cordell Stewart, and i think these kind of QB's don't win to many SuperBowls...
