Elway, no way he is overrated
Moon, he put up great numbers everywhere he went Houston, Minnesota, Edmonton?
Aikman- maybe a bit overrated
Fouts, no way. If he had a running game he would have some rings.
Namath- yeah probably

I think Archie Manning gets more props than he deserves, same with Ken Stabler and even Bradshaw had a few great seasons, but were on great teams more than were great passers. I think you can include Joe Theismann, Kurt Warner, Bart Starr as overrated.

Not to mention his league record for most 4th quarter come-from-behind victories.

No way Elway is overrated. He won two Super Bowls and the ones he lost were due to his defense falling apart in the SB and no run game to take pressure off of the passing game.

Those SB losses for him came during a time when the NFC was head and shoulders above the AFC.

Oh... 9-5... check your sig... the Browns have won 4 NFL championships. Those AAFC ones are meaningless.
LULZ.

The Browns dominated the NFL the second they switched leagues. One could argue that if the Browns were in the NFL at the time they probably would've won those 4.

Semantics semantics!

You could argue that if your aunt had a penis and testicles she'd be your uncle too!

The only legitimate overrated QB on that original list, imho, is Joe Namath. Elway and The Mooner overrated? Hogwash.

I would have to include Jim McMahon on that list. Sure he has a SB ring, but da Bears won the title not because of him but because of their D, which probably is right up there with the Steelers of the 70's as the top NFL defenses of all time. McMahon was one crazy mofo.

I like the Jim McMahon call, but since no one ever really talks about him except to say he was the QB of that one time wonder Bears team, he isn't important enough to include in this list.

One could argue that if the Steelers started Kordell Stewart or traded for Dan Marino before SB XXX, they would have 6 Super Bowls.

Unfortunately, the world will never know and as much as we try, we cannot rewrite the past.

Ooh, I got one - how about if Harris and Bleier would have been able to play in the '76 AFCCG? Playing "what if" is fun!
