    Overrated may be a fine tag for Namath, but I don't think he was "average"

    Who would be considered an average starting QB in the NFL these days?

    Jason Campbell? Matt Moore? Matt Cassel?

    1. The Kissing Suzy Kolber gang isn't nearly as funny as they think they are.
    2. Their knowledge of football is deficient.
  9. Tony Romo. ;)

    Disagree. Also, you must have missed this at the end of the list...."There you have it. According to our complex metric of bullshit and gut feeling, James Thrash is the most average player in the history of the NFL."

    Pretty sure they weren't going for an in-depth and thorough list after speaking with scouts, coaches, and GMs.

    Neither funny enough to be funny, nor insightful enough to be insightful. Namath is the punchline, I suppose. Not Christmas Ape's* best work.

    * not his real name
