Edit: Everyone associates him with his mistakes, but as certain ESPN folks point out every week during football season, his 4th quarter numbers are actually quite strong.
If Romo was more consistent in initiating and executing play rightfully, and the Cowboys won more games and a championship, my opinion of Romo would be different. Romo's mistakes, which have resulted in losses, makes him mediocre. He is not on the level of Troy Aikman.

How would y'all rate Tim Tebow? The NFL sure doesn't seem to think much of him, yet he does have a winning record.

Sam Bradford is better than Nick Foles?

Bradford has spent most of the past two seasons on injured reserve with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. When healthy, he was on a mediocre-at-best Rams team. His injuries puts him at risk to be a starter, but may allow him to succeed in a reduced role as a backup.

Despite a season ending injury in the 2014 regular season, Foles has played well for the Eagles.

I think Foles needs more time. He had a great year, then got injured. Kaepernick was great in 2012, then his running plays didn't enjoy nearly as much success as expected the past couple years. He just hasn't impressed me much since that 2012 playoff run.

understand that foles was not in a system that complemented his ability. foles is too immobile to be a good eagles QB. he is a far better pocket passer and not the type the eagles need.

and by the way, the reason sanchez replaced foles is because foles went down in the eighth game of the season with a broken collarbone, a season ending injury, which put him on the injured reserve.

I was just listening to Sirius XM NFL Radio. An ex-Redskins GM was asked just this question. His take was, as some other past college QB's have been - Tebow was a good college QB that would never play in the NFL, or even at any other position.

Tebow still has potential to be a good quarterback in the National Football League. I hope he makes the most of his opportunity with the Eagles, which will have competition with Sanchez and Bradford.

They both are average or below average. Neither should be rated above that grade. Foles had a fantastic 10 or so games back in 2013 but that does not make a trend or career.
