  1. I've never heard of Marion Motley until now. Too bad. Totally a class act and deserving of every accolade he gets. It also doesn't hurt that he was a badass MF, either.

  2. I remember seeing Wayne Chrebet on NFL Primetime a lot, making some crazy diving, outstretched catches

  3. Romo got criticized for the bumbled PAT snap. Of course: you never see Brady or Rogers fumble a PAT snap because their coach (Parcells) didn't have them holding place kicks once they became starters. Parcells said he dragged his ass with Romo for so many years because he didn't know he could trust the OC that was BEGGING him to replace his GF Bledsoe. And that's Bill Parcell: great as long as an assistant does his job. Parcells won with the Pats….with Bellichick as asst. He won with the Giants…will Bellichick…who advised him to take Brady in the 5th rd but Ol' Bill was way too smart for that. Give Romo 3 more career years and no one would ever catch his stats.

  4. Doug Baldwin easily deserves to be in the top 5.. The man was a 2x Pro Bowler, ranks 3rd all-time in franchise history for both receptions and yards, and in 2015 he led the league in receiving TD’s.

  5. oh how legacies sometimes can be formed legit by inches… if romo didnt hesitate during that field goal and didnt wait for the kicker to miss he wouldve just gotten in the endzone.. instead inches have destroyed romos legacy up to this day

  6. The Warren Moon situation just smells like racism to me and knowing what I know now it pretty much had to be

  7. The last two was obviously a hard choice for #1 and if I had a say in the decision, then I would have picked Kurt as #1 also and mainly because I witnessed his fairytale career

  8. Romo couldn't process situational football in the post season. The stage was too big for him, although he was improving before his final injury. I do believe he would have taken the Cowboys to a Superbowl if it had not been the fast rise of Dak Prescott.

  9. I was James Harrison not on this list. The guy entered the NFL in 2002 as an undrafted free agent because all the scouts thought he was too short at 6 foot to play linebacker or defensive lineman and two light at 240 lbs. A lot of teams passed him up including the Baltimore Ravens saying that he was never good enough to play in the NFL the Steelers give him a try. Here's your stats Total tackles:793 Sacks:84.5Forced fumbles:34 Fumble recoveries: 8 Interceptions: 8 Defensive touchdowns:1 and that one and only touchdown was 100 yard touchdown and Super Bowl 43. He is also a
    2× Super Bowl champion (XL, XLIII)
    5× Pro Bowl (2007–2011)
    2× First-team All-Pro (2008, 2010)
    2× Second-team All-Pro (2007, 2009)
    NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2008) not bad for a guy who was not drafted by any team in the NFL and thought was too short and light to be an NFL player. This guy is a future NFL Hall of Famer and he belongs on this list.

  10. Warner over Moon? I guess racism is still alive lol. Yes he won rings, but that's a team achievement. Compare the teammates they played with.

  11. Narrator: …left in a dumpster as a baby..

    Me: yo!! Give me a warning before messing up my day.

  12. Right. Put a kicker on the list and leave off three of the greatest OLers ever–Larry Little, Jim Lan but ger, and Wayne Moore, three on the greatest offenseive line ever…oh, since they played for the Dolphins….and where is Cameron Wake?

  13. Can you just imagine that with all these Top-10 Undrafted players on the same team, & all the SB they would've won?! Wow.

  14. Wayne cabett Suffers from severe head injuries and quite frankly has said a more one occasion his career is not worth it

  15. Bears is so suck that Kurt Warner refused to go to training camp even if it the only team that called him after packers cut him lol

  16. Come on now! Where is Drew Pearson of the Cowboys?! He should be before the guy for the Wayne Chrebet and overrated Romo!

  17. 13:00 — Warren Moon WON THE DAMN ROSE BOWL!!!!! Can you Believe he wasn't even drafted as a QB???? That was back when the Rose bowl was about the biggest bowl game in College Football. He took a team that had almost no business being in that game and WON IT!!!!
    Joke was on the NFL though. Nobody drafted him when he was cheap – so he went to Canada and won 5 straight Grey Cups in 6 seasons and was named CFL most outstanding player — then he cost Houston $6 million as a free agent — in 1984!!!! JOKE ON YOU NFL — should've gotten him cheap in 1978.
    Also — do you know that the Pittsburgh Steelers would not have won the Superbowl in 1979 if Warren Moon had been on the Houston Oilers??? Do you know why? They had a top 4 defense and a running back drafted #1 — EARL CAMPBELL!!!! Imagine the combination of Warren Moon and Earl Campbell in their Primes in 1978-80!!! See ya next year Steelers – no SB for you!!!!!

  18. Moon has to be higher. You take the seasons he had in Edmonton and just gave him average stats for an NFL team saying he started in the second year. Look what his numbers would be. Awesome!

  19. Dave Krieg. Won me two fantasy championships. 261 TDs/199 INTs/81.5 QB Rating. Warren Moon: 291 TDs/233 INTs/80.9 QB Rating. Plus Moon didn't have to play under "Ground" Chuck Knox.

  20. I'm not gonna watch this but seeing Romo on the thumbnail made me come here to comment he should never be on any underrated list.He is one of the most overrated players because he had that star on his helmet.If he played in Tampa,Arizona,Seattle etc he wouldn't even be mentioned.

  21. FOR THE ROMO HATERS , HOW MANY COWBOYS QB's WERE IN THE TOP 10 QB RANKINGS AFTA TROY RETIRED? WHAT OTHER COWBOYS QB GOT US TO THE PLAYOFFS ? WHAT COWBOYS QB HAS THE MOST 4TH QT COMEBACKS? "TONY ROMO" HAS WON MORE GAMES THAN HE LOST 4US….TO GET TO THE PLAYOFFS YOU HAVE TO WIN IN THE REG SEASON. WE HAD CHANCES EVERY YR TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS WITH ROMO….EVEN WHEN WE LOST 3 DO OR DIE GAMES IN WK 17 IF NOT FOR TONY WE WOULDNT HAVE A DO OR DIE GAME AT ALL…RESPECT 9# HE PLAYED WITH BROKEN RIBS, BACK INJURIES AND NEVER QUIT ON US LIKE JAY CUTLER QUIT ON THE BEARS IN PLAYOFFS…..ROMO OK WITH ME👍

  22. TONY ROMO HAD HEART….WAS A GUN SLINGER…..& COULD PULL OF THE 4TH QT COMEBACK. "WIN" OR "LOSE" HE WAS FUN TO WATCH BECAUSE HE NEVER QUIT ON A PLAY…. RESPECT 9#

  23. AS THE ANOUNCER SAID "THE PLAYOFF DROUGHT IS OVER" WOO HOO WON A PLAYOFF GAME ☺…..BECAUSE OF ROMO / WE BEAT THE HATED EAGLES AND MCNABB😀👍

  24. That little d2 college in south Texas that randle went to produced 3 NFL HOF to include Darrel Green and Gene Upshaw and countless NFL talents.

  25. Watching Wayne Chrebet i can only think about one thing: It's so strange to see a receiver without gloves

  26. Could you imagine, this dude is stocking shelves in a grocery store, then somebody walks up to him and says "I know this sounds nuts but within a couple years you're going to be holding the MVP trophy in the NFL."

  27. Wow. Jason Peter's should've not only made the list , he should have been near the top ! Starts his career as a TE , learns the tackle position in the offseason, and in game 9 of his second season gets his first start at tackle. Goes to 9 Pro-Bowls and a 6 time All-Pro ! Which is insane considering he missed the entire 2012 season due to injury and was 1st team All Pro in 2011 and 2013. What I'm getting at is he certainly would have went both Pro Bowl and All Pro that season had he played. Also in 2017 (Super Bowl year) he played the first 7 games of the season. At the time he was not only the highest graded Left Tackle in football (per PFF) , he was the highest graded O-lineman in the NFL period ! At 35 he had only allowed 1 pressure and 1 sack in 7 games !! Those are great #s by any standard , but to do it at 35 is insane. Surely he would have went on to another Pro Bowl and yet another All Pro selection. Barring injury he would've had 11 Pro Bowls and 8 All Pro selections in 13 frigging years !! Wtf !! Amazing 1st ballot Hall of Famer and belongs right up there with John Randle! Sorry Kurt but you really were a bum for 1/2 your career!

  28. List of “short” successful QBs:
    Tony Romo: 6’2”
    Drew brees: 6’
    Russell Wilson: 5’11”
    Kyler Murray: 5’10.1”
    Stop hating on small qbs, tony is as tall as Aaron Rodgers and nobody is complaining that he is small.

  29. Just look at how much better than EVERYONE ELSE Motley had to be in order to be seen, prejudice is corrosive and retrograde.

  30. I watched this right up until the racism narrative. It makes my ass tired. Boring, redundant, and unfounded. A charge made over and over again without evidence.

  31. Warren Moon should have been a lot higher . Rejected by the NFL , Five greycups in a row in Canada , so he was getting on in years ( for a QB ) before the NFL gave him a shot , and he still became a star … speaking of which , was doug flutie drafted ?

  32. I love John Randle’s saying to the ref, “We should hang out, we should go fishing together.” #wise_diplomacy 😀, and much respect — Randle was a beast.
