His stats have been mediocre over his career. His teams are usually average at best for that reason. He throw's too many INT's (more-so of late). He fumbles a lot too.
Sure, he's a Super Bowl winner. But that team won a championship largely in spite of his performances. Sure, he had the big play(s) to Tyree and the game winner (on a busted coverage) to Burress. But that team won because of their defense keeping them in, and leading them to, most of their wins.

Vs. Tampa 20-27 185 yds 2 TDs 0 INTs (Out of 57 offensive plays)
Vs. Dallas 12-18 163 yds 2 TDs 0 INTs (Out of 41 offensive plays)
Vs. Green Bay 21-40 251 yds 0 TDS 0 INTs (Out of 79 offensive plays)
Vs. NE 19-34 255 yds 2 TDs 1 INTs (Out of 60 offensive plays)
This shows a team that relied on a QB to make plays over half the game. Eli did that and more. He is the reason they won a Super Bowl that year. If you watched the games and saw the throws he was making, he was FLAWLESS. I had never seen another QB take a team on his shoulders like that until Rodgers last year.
Also, at this point in his career, his numbers are similar to Elway, Aikman, Brady, and McNair. Not bad QB company. His INTs definitely need to go down, but remember, he's in a blitz heavy division with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins. So mistakes are common, especially throwing in those Jersey winds.

He had 3 int's yes but 1 was the receivers fault and one was basically a hail mary at the end of the game. Is he over rated or under rated who knows seems to me he's rated where he should be not the best and far from the worst.

If you look at this INTs alone, you won't be impressed with him; however, look at how many of his INTs are his fault. Especially last year, a lot of INTs came from deflected passes by Giants players. You could easily take 10 INTs away because of missed passes by his recievers.
I think Eli needs a bit of work, but he is definitely one of the better QBs in the league and definitely has some great years ahead of him with Nicks, Manningham and anyone else who decides they wanna catch passes for the Giants
