Tim Tebow, Mark Sanchez, Tony Romo Named NFL’s Most Overrated Players

| by Alex Groberman

The media may love Tim Tebow, but his fellow NFL players don’t seem to be particularly fond of his work. In a survey taken by Sports Illustrated, Tebow was deemed the most overrated player in the league by a mile.

According to SI, 180 current players were polled for this survey. The results:

1. Tim Tebow 34%

2. Mark Sanchez 8%

3. Tony Romo 8%

4. Michael Vick 4%

5. Ray Lewis 3%

While Tebow winning by an overwhelming margin isn’t surprising, the inclusion of Lewis on this list is. Mind you, this guy has been recognized as something of a mentor to a lot of NFL players; it’s a bit strange that the guys surveyed don’t have more respect for the only surefire Hall of Famer who cracked the top five. Vick being on this list is understandable – he makes a lot of money. Romo and Sanchez, similarly, get way more attention than they actually deserve.

Lewis being on the list is interesting, though. Very interesting.
