It's crazy how bad He and Cam Newton have regressed. With Newtons regression being pretty bad.

Cam just went back to what he was after having an amazing 10 game (plus playoffs) stretch.

Ben Roethlisberger.

His play has noticeably declined since 2015.

Strange thing about him is his reputation has always been inversely proportional to his performance.

2004-10: Three AFC titles and 2 Lombardis. Overrated, riding a great defense.

2011-16: No AFC titles, a four year streak without a postseason win. Elite quarterback.

He gets more credit since the Steelers didn't have the beastly OL in 2013-2014, and the defenses play dropped off a ton when Taylor, Farrior, Polamalu got older and retired.

But last season and so far this season his play has been underwhelming to say the least.

And as a Steelers fan, that worries the shite outta me, since I know where this team goes if Landry Jones is the QB of the future.

Mark Malone got to an AFC title game. MARK MALONE.

Dobbs might turn out to be the quarterback of the future. He's literally a rocket scientist and QB is a position where intelligence can somewhat offset physical talent.

Maria Sharapova

Man has she milked that 2004 and 2006 Wimbledon and US Open titles.

She was #1 for one whole year sandwiched between those two Grand Slam finals (and now she is #104) but people have still saw her as the top elite the last 15 years.

After that she was #1 like one month here one month there for a few times over 15 years.



But people act like this has been the last 15 years.

She has gotten a total pass from the commentators and public for a few shining moments early in her career when she was a baby.

If he had regular hair, didn't go to USC, and didn't have a famous daddy and uncle, he'd be Connor Barwin.

Danica Patrick had a late pit stop lead once in the Indy 500, so she all the commercials and is still discussed like she actually has a chance to win a race.

She still hasn't won a race in the Western Hemisphere.
