I think the list was determined based more on the team winning or play-off appearances when it concerns luck, rg3, wilson, and kaepernick. Besides, if the redskins were in the nfc south they would have never made it to the playoffs because of the falcons. And the AFC is just not as competitive. Based on talent and size and ability Cam should be higher.

I gotta say Josh Freeman shouldn't be that low either..

Matt Ryan and Ben Roethlisberger both belong in the "all overrated" team, though Tony Romo is the champion of that front.  I'm also in the camp that says Joe Flacco is overrated, but given his playoff performance you'd probably have to rank him ahead of Newton (for now).

 

I think that it's a little unfair to say that Ben Roethlisberger belongs to the "all overrated" team. Big Ben is a two-time Champion. He has been a little banged up and has had some shaky games as of late, but he has still led his team to the mountaintop. He is not in the same class as Ryan and Romo due to that fact alone.

That's the rationale I usually hear people use when they say Roethlisberger is great, to which my response is "Did you watch his Super Bowl performances?"

The only game in which he had what you could rightly call a good performance was the win over the Cardinals, and even there I'd say he was more 'along for the ride' than 'at the helm'. In both the Seahawks win and the loss to the Packers, he was borderline terrible. He won the first one as much as anything because Hasselbeck was worse (Seahawk fans would also cite a horrible ref call in that one).

The Steelers in the past have been good enough overall to absorb poor performance on his part. I'm not sure that's true anymore.

Come on, Scot. You know that it's not just about the Super Bowl. Roethlisberger had to put them in the position to get there. He arguably did more than his fair share. He has done some amazing things. Yes, he was a little shaky this past season, but no one is perfect. You are letting your hate show.

 

Considering the Steelers' draft, I wouldn't be so quick to throw dirt on them. One more draft like they had this past draft (really like they usually have), and they will be back atop the NFL---not saying that they won't be in the mix this year. Roethlisberger will most certainly be the key part in that equation.

Whoever put a QB that has only started 8 career games ahead of 20 other qb's should be slapped in the face with a big black dildo.
