3. Matthew Stafford (overrated)
When you sign what at the time was the largest contract in NFL history, you better be worth it, and Stafford just isn’t. No one’s denying that Stafford has immense arm talent, which is why people throw him in the conversation about the best quarterbacks in the game.
But he’s only been to one Pro Bowl, and the Lions have lost all three playoff games they’ve reached since drafting Stafford. He can sling it, but he’s not a winner, and until Stafford can win a few playoff games during the duration of that $135 million contract, he will continue to be overrated.
