    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 !!

    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.

    Eli has a ring, but he is very over-rated.
