Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow finds it puzzling that he was recently voted the most overrated player in the NFL in a poll of his fellow players conducted by Sports Illustrated.
Tebow said today that he’s not upset about his colleagues thinking he’s overrated, but he is surprised: After all, Tebow pointed out, when NFL Network asked players to cast ballots for its series of programs about the Top 100 players in the NFL, Tebow came in at No. 95.
“Really doesn’t bother me too much,” Tebow said. “The same players this past offseason voted me in the Top 100, so I guess there’s several ways you can look at it.”
Tebow suggested that players are annoyed with him because of all the attention the media give him.
“They’re probably just getting a little sick of hearing all the talk and everything y’all have to say,” Tebow told reporters.
And now a lot of players are probably getting a little sick of hearing all the talk about Tebow’s status as the most overrated player.
