Who's Overrated?

Sports Illustrated recently polled NFL players to see which one of their peers they think is the most overrated player in the league. Here's what they came up with:

Terrell Owens, Bengals WR 14%
Tony Romo, Cowboys QB 7%
Mark Sanchez, Jets QB 5%
Albert Haynesworth, Redskins DT 5%
Eli Manning, Giants QB 4%


T.O. gets the top vote, no surprise there. I'm not sure I agree with this one though. If anything Owens has been the only decent performer on the suffering Bengals offense this season, and maybe even underrated this year. Is he overrated? Maybe as a reality star, but right now I think he can still hang with the best of them in this league. I mean, he does have more receptions, yards, and TDs than his counterpart, tell me who's overrated.

Not to make this a Bengal-bashing fest, but I would rank Carson Palmer high on my list of overrated players. And how about adding Alex Smith, and maybe Matt Ryan to the list of QBs. Who do you think is overrated?

  1. Nice as usual Alex!

    I think Matt Ryan is Good and not overrated. He's in his second third year in the League and I think that he's only going to get better. Alex Smith I think hasn't been overrated from what I heard but I know that he's not underrated with either!

    I think that Brian Urlacher is overrated. He's still pitched as high caliber but I just don't see it.

  2. I think if Urlacher was on a different team he'd be more of a standout player, not to say he isn't already...but the Bears keep throwing up red flags everywhere else on the team that he might get overlooked
