Yeah, and when he was throwing to those guys, his stats weren't particularly impressive compared to the rest of the league.

Here are his rankings in terms of total passing yards, total passing TDs, and yards per attempt that everyone seems to love with RG3.

2001 - Not top 10 in any
2002 - 6th, 1st, not top 10
2003 - 6th, 10th, not top 10
2004 - 10th, 6th, 8th
2005 - 1st, 3rd, 6th
2006 - 7th, 4th, not top 10
2007 - 1st, 1st, 1st
2008 - ACL injury
2009 - 5th, 6th, not top 10
2010 - 8th, 1st, 5th
2011 - 2nd, 4th, 2nd

He's had 3 elite years - 2005, 2007, and 2011 - and a bunch of good to very good years. He's a very good QB, I will not deny that. I do not believe he is in the greatest QB ever conversation that you can have with Montana, Marino, Manning, and Elway, although some people like to throw him in there. That's what I mean when I say he's overrated. Some people will put him into that conversation which I don't believe he belongs in.
