Tony Romo overrated according to player’s poll

Tony Romo is one of the most scrutinized players in the NFL and this week’s Sports Illustrated proves that even NFL players are critical of his work.

In SI’s weekly players poll, 180 NFL players were asked: Who is the most overrated player in the league?

While Romo didn’t grab the top spot, he did receive eight percent of the vote.

New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez also received eight percent. Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow convincingly topped the poll with 34 percent of the vote.

Philadelphia’s Michael Vick (four percent) was fourth and Baltimore’s Ray Lewis (three percent) rounded out the top five.

Forty eight players received at least one vote and surprisingly, Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady (two percent) and Eli Manning (one percent) were each named by a few players.
