    This is the actual winner, right here. Talk about a 'never was'.

    Honorable mentions to: Kirk Cousins, Sammy Watkins, Matt Stafford and Golden Tate.

    I remember when BB was scolded here by many for not drafting Matthews. Hmmm.

    Historically, a significant portion of Patriots fans - greatly encouraged by the uneducated takes of the media draft "gurus" like Kiper - have never understood why BB has consistently shunned "great college pass-rushers" in favor of more complete edge-players like Nink and Flowers.

    Clay Matthews May be more overrated than Aaron Rodgers in my opinion.

    JJ Watt? How is he overrated? He’s a 5x first team All-Pro and 3x DPOY.

    So your showing us that Wilson has had 5 top ten offenses in 7 seasons to go along with his second rated (behind only Tom Brady) playoff success. Wilson also has a higher playoff winning % and more SB appearances than both Rodgers and Brees and yet you want to ignore all of that and use his points scored to make him the most overrated QB in history? I'll take wins over any useless stat.

    His lack of fourth quarter comebacks, especially against good teams, is also an eye catcher

    Sorry about the smarmish 'so' comment. It was unnecessary and I've deleted it since.

    I think all of those accomplishments are useless when judging players and coaches. They come across more as popularity contests. When I see JJ Watt play his performance doesn't match his hype.

    When he plays against us he seems to get neutralized but his stats, when healthy, are up there with some of the best to do it. His floor when healthy is double digit sacks, he is routinely disruptive either batting passes (averages almost .5 passes defensed a game) or pressuring the QB. I’m usually not a stats guy but his are hard to ignore.

    Dak Prescott, but only after his most recent game. You'd think he put up 500 yards and 4 TD the way people talk about that performance.

    Stafford is a good one for most overrated. Huge contract and decent stats but doesn’t win games.
