I don't think Schaub gets overrated, only because no one ever talks about him.

Ryan is from Philadelphia, and has to drop that "bound for disappointment" stench. He's still better than I thought he would be out of college. Overrated because of the playoff record, but all three games were against guys went to the Super Bowl, and are going to the Hall of Fame. First step for him was finally winning the rematch against the Saints, he was 0-4 before it.
My thoughts mirror this. Stafford is only overrated if you equate fantasy relevance with real-life quality. The Rivers-without-being-a-***** comparison seems very apt, though Rivers was far more highly thought of at this point of his career than Stafford is. It wasn't until Eli won his first Super Bowl that Rivers really started getting the 'your turn' stink eye.

Schaub is a Texan...it's hard for a Texan to get overrated just because of how localized their fan base is.

Ryan...well I didn't know he was from Philadelphia, but now it explains so much
