Well, to be fair, Art Shell was running an outdated offense on his second stint in Oakland, so it's not like there wasn't precedent for the Raiders.

I would not put Pennington on that list. Pennington is ok. Like El Gonzo Jackson said, Kurt Warner caught lightning in a bottle for a couple of years.

O'Donnell is in the same class as Trent Dilfer: Game manager, expected not to lose games rather than win them. Except Dilfer actually did his job in the big game as opposed to NO. The irony is that Neil O'Donnell had a brilliant season as far as TD/INT ratio...I think he only threw like 6 picks the whole year, maybe even less.

Go ahead and chuckle, but I strongly feel Rich Gannon was definitely underrated during his time with the Raiders.
Forget Oakland, Gannon played well in Minnesota and KC too. He's probably gotta be on that list too.

If it wasnt for the Steelers, Raiders, Oilers of the 70's and the 49ers in the 80's....Ken Anderson would have a SB ring and be in Canton by now. He was the first guy to make Bill Walsh's west coast offense work.

Anyone who could complete 20 of 22 passes against the 70's Steelers deserves at least some kind of respect.

A couple of the QB's on the list I have to partially defend...Kurt Warner and Chad Pennington. A lot of people say Kurt Warner was a "flash-in-the-pan" while he was with the Rams, getting by with an exceptional supporting cast on offense, but even an over-the-hill Warner was outperforming Matt Leinart with the Cardinals last year.

Chad Pennington was never an elite QB and never had much arm strength, but the guy was a very accurate passer when he was healthy and he also led an average Jets team to a few wins. Noodle arm may never beat the great Kyle Boller in a deep ball contest, but he certainly wasn't as bad as many people claimed him to be. When healthy he's a good game-managing quarterback who won't make too many mistakes.
your referring to pennington in past tence ,did pennington retire ??? if he's truley been underated all these yrs, wouldn't at least one team want him as a starter, and make a move to get him???

I put it in the past tense because with all of his injuries and such, I don't think we'll be seeing much of him in the future.

The fact that no teams are really anxious to make him a starter helps in making him truly underrated, IMO. I'm not saying he's a guy I would want to make my franchise QB, but he always played decently for the Jets.

-Browns homer alert-

http://youtube.com/watch?v=eX7FKDI-fGQ

..is the most underrated QB!

Guy did a hell of a job with about being the speediest guy, and was probably one of the smartest QB's in league history. If not for Marty Schottenheimer being a moron and running the Prevent D in '86, History would've been kinder to BK in a place besides Cleveland :).

I'm still disapointed the Browns havn't hired him as a special assistant to help out DA and BQ. :(.
