Foles is average at worst. If he plays well like he did in the 2013 regular season, and the Rams win games, Foles moves up to above average.

A lot of "ifs" IMO with Foles.

The fact that a lot of people seem to come to his defense suggests that he is rated fairly high for who he actually might be as a QB.

His career rating of 94 needs to be considered cautiously when evaluating him.

By year his ratings were:

2012- 79
2013- 119
2014- 81 (Sanchez posted an 88 for comparison last year).

Clearly one looks like an anomaly.

I'd say Bradford is below average at this point in his career. I'll go ahead and give Foles the benefit of the doubt and say that he is average for now.

I think so, too, but he made a completely terrible and unneeded pass (interception) in the last couple of minutes in the AFC playoffs last season. The Ravens didn't need a touchdown that early and it was definitely too much of a risk. I judge him for that almost as much as I do Russell Wilson for the last minute interception in the Super Bowl.

Back in the string, someone posted that Mark Sanchez is overrated. Who is rating him high? He lost his starting job a couple years ago and now is content to be a backup for the Eagles. So who, really, overrating him?

For overrated, I would have to say Drew Brees. Odd to some I am sure, considering his record and stats over the years and how favorably they stack up to the best in the game. However, I really think he has become a product of a great offense and a dome stadium where weather does not affect him. I have seen him play in weather, and it usually is not pretty.

Not sure who I would label as underrated. I cannot think of a QB who I think is sneaking up on greatness. Maybe Andy Daulton could fit this bill, if as he matures at the position he starts having playoff success. I hear talk of people who wish he was shown the door in Cincinnati as a bust, and yet he consistently wins enough to get them to the playoffs. He is no Brady in hiding mind you, but maybe more along the lines of Flacco before he won the Super Bowl. A fairly good QB that, until he goes out and has big playoff success, will always have people talking about who should replace him.

Your thoughts?
I do not think Rivers or Brees are underrated- they get their due. Rivers may be a little overrated. I also think Cam Newton has a bigger reputation than game.

Totally agree- playing for the Cowboys will get anyone overrated due to their media hype.

Romo has the second highest QB rating all time. How is he that overrated? Lack of playoff success maybe, but I hear nobody hiding that fact either.

He is overrated, and QBR ratings can be skewed many different ways, if you look online at the top QBs. He isn't 2nd on many lists. QB arguments run rampant on message boards, but you cannot put him up with the best.
