Default Players think Terrell Owens is the most overrated in NFL

Quote:
In a poll of 269 NFL players released on Wednesday by Sports Illustrated, Owens was named most overrated by 14 percent of respondents, far outdistancing Tony Romo(notes) (7 percent), Mark Sanchez(notes) (5 percent), Albert Haynesworth(notes) (5 percent) and Eli Manning(notes) (4 percent).

[Video Rewind: T.O. gets dunked on at Rucker Park]

Though NFL players are usually paragons of sound judgment, I'm going to have to take issue with this one. T.O. is the "most" in many categories: loud, over-exposed, attention-seeking, annoying, reluctant to run a crossing route, likely to star in unwatchable television shows. But overrated? If anything he's been underrated this year.

[Photos: See more images of Terrell Owens]

Owens didn't sign until the eve of training camp and was only able to muster a one-year deal from the Cincinnati Bengals. Basically, every team in the NFL passed on him during the offseason. All he's done so far in 2010 is put himself on pace to post career highs in receptions and yards, yet you never hear about his play, just his antics.

And for that, he's overrated? Hmm ... maybe Donovan McNabb(notes) went Chicago-style on this ballot and voted more than once.

I'm betting his poisonality in the locker room has something to do with it as well. Has to be a lot of active players in the NFL that have seen it firsthand.

I think what the players are saying is that the media and fans think that TO is much better than he is. He has never had a HWWNBN throwing to him. Except for last year in Buffalo.

poisonality? Is that even a word? Either way, I like it. Lol! Perfect way to describe TO and I think that's exactly why he was voted for this.

Other than that TO has been anything but overrated throughout his career. He's easily one of the best WR's of all time

Not to derail this thread, but I saw somewhere that a Romo/Cowboys lover said that Eli may have a ring, but would rather have Romo with the stats he puts up...stating Eli is overrated more so that Romo.. Guess that is the thinking of Dallas fan.. Would rather have STATS than have won a SB. OK.....

I'll be there Monday night.. we shall see !!

Default Re: Players think Terrell Owens is the most overrated in NFL

and just to continue to derail this thread. I am really divided on the Ranger's success. One part of me is happy for them and wants them to crush the Yankees. But, another fairly big part doesn't want the Ranger's success to take away any of the pain for the Cowgirl's fans.

Surprised the greatest decoy of all time didn't make the list. NFL players must not rate him very highly to begin with

My guess is that the overrated part comes from the press and the fans. Mainly the press. And the greatest decoy of all time has been exposed for years, so not overrated at all. Not even rated anymore.
