To me, that's blashphemy! Jim Kelly is one of my favorite non-Steelers QB's. Though he never won a SB with the Bills, he accomplished a feat no other NFL QB in history has ever accomplished - leading his team into 4 straight SB's. Personally, I think he is terribly underrated.

HTG...Living in Syracuse my whole life, I had nothing but Bills football stuffed down my throat for many years. Game after game, I watched him turn the ball over or get sacked on very key possessions. That and losing 4 SB's!! That's the opinon I've always had of him.

While I can certainly respect your opinion, LIG, this is the Jim Kelly I remember:

http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/me...?player_id=112

In 11 seasons in Buffalo, Kelly led the Bills to the playoffs eight times. In 17 playoff game appearances, including four consecutive Super Bowls, he passed for 3,863 yards and 21 touchdowns. At the time of his retirement, his 84.4 passer rating ranked sixth all-time and was second when compared to Hall of Fame quarterbacks. His 35,467 career passing yards ranked tenth in NFL history; his 2,874 completions ranked eighth; and his 237 touchdowns ranked thirteenth.

At the time of Kelly's retirement, only Fran Tarkenton, Dan Fouts, and Johnny Unitas among Hall of Fame quarterbacks had passed for more yardage, and only Tarkenton, and Fouts had completed more passes.

I listed McMahon because he is the owner of 2 SB rings (XX and XXXI) and during da Bears magical 1985 season, he was quite the media darling. I was nauseous from hearing about him day in and day out during that season.

Though I thought the guy was a punk and a total jackass, he did play fairly well in XX and da Bears trounced the Cheatriots* in that game.

Nice call on Jim McMahon. He was definitely overrated (although, maybe he should be in the rap HOF for the "Super Bowl Shuffle' ) Of course, IDT many (other than da' Bears super fans) are clamoring that he is of football HOF caliber anyways.

On the original list, I would have to agree Namath is the most overrated QB. On the other hand, his drunken slobbering over female sports reporters’ ability is quite underrated.

No way Elway is overrated. Moon was a great passer, no doubt. As for Fouts, that offense was the most unstoppable force ever for about 5 years. Aikmen played well in big games which is also TB's calling card so I don't see how a Steelers' fan could say Aikmen was overrated.

A few more to add to the overrated list: Boomer E, Ken O'brien, Brian Sipes and Theeesman, to the extent that Gibbs’ Skins were able to win the SB without him.

I forgot about Peg Leg Joe. Couldn't stand him during his playing days and even less as an announcer. If you googled the word "douchebag", it would most likely come up with the name Joe Theisman.

I always thought that Joe Theisman was one of the most forgetable QBs, and announcers I ever saw. Except for the play that he broke his leg, I will never forget that.
