The Contenders: Page 3

41 John Elway John Elway John Albert Elway Jr. is a former American football quarterback and current executive vice president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

Should be a lot lower. Had average stats his first 10 years because of Reeves' offense. Steve Watson called it the "Edsel System". He also said that Reeves focused more on protection than attacking a defense, and Elway's numbers suffered.

42 Andy Dalton Andy Dalton Andrew Gregory Dalton is an American football quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. V 1 Comment

44 Lynn Swan

Lynn Swan is totally overrated. he doesn't even have 400 receptions and he is in the hall of fame

He should be number one on this list instead of being in the Hall of Fame.

400 receptions in the 70s was very hard to do

Sherman sucks. when the seahawks lost in the super bowl he start crying. He never makes plays anyway

Sherman is the best corner in the nfl if anything he is underrated because people critsize him becausehe had a low amount of picks this season because no one threw it towards him he has the most picks out of anyone since 2011 and often his picks turn into tds
