And it isn’t even close.
Interestingly, the 2 players who tied for a very distant 2nd behind Tebow were New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez and Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo (Don’t tell Cowboys fans that. They blame anyone and everyone before they will blame Romo for the Cowboys extended run of mediocrity).
A total of 180 players were surveyed by Sports Illustrated for the NFL Players’ Poll.
In addition to voting Tebow the most overrated player in the NFL, the players also opined that rain is wet.
When reached for comment, Tebow said:
“I promise you one thing. A lot of good will come out of this. You will never see another player in the entire country be as overrated as I will be for the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team to be overrated as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season. You will never see a team be more overrated than we will be the rest of the season. God Bless.”

The stalwarts of snarky at deadspin.com bring us this breakdown of ESP*I*N’s new record for the number of mentions of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow in an hour of programming. It’s mind-boggling.
True story: I was flipping channels the other day and went to ESPN. Tebow was being discussed. I quickly flipped to ESPN2. Tebow was being discussed. I kept flipping to ESPNNews and Tebow was being discussed. I mean….really? A trifecta?
I know his Howard Cosellian level of love/hate response generation is ratings gold, but it is almost as if ESPN is “all in” and is parodying itself at this point.
They love Tebow even more than Tebow loves Tebow (and that is A LOT OF LOVE)…..speaking of……I think BlogHawgs reader and contributor Kris Boyd has hit on the reason *I* get so sick of
College Football Baby Jesus–Tebow–he doesn’t practice what he preaches. SEE Matthew 6: 1-8.
I will admit I am grudgingly beginning to believe in divine football intervention. Tebow has had as good of a run of luck as any player in recent NFL history.
At this rate I half expect another “Spygate” scandal to erupt and New England to be forced to forfeit this weekend’s divisional playoff matchup with the Broncos.
Please, God. I am begging you. Make it stop.

Yahoo’s Michael Silver emphatically votes “Bust” over “Bronze Bust” in Canton.
So, is Tebow being judged in an unfairly harsh light? His legions of fans would undoubtedly answer in the affirmative. They revere him for his work ethic, his values, his leadership qualities and, not insignificantly, his faith.
However – and this is a big however – there’s a glaring disconnect between many fans’ assessment of Tebow’s status as a wholesome winner and the way many NFL players process his presence. To some, the notion that Tebow somehow pushes harder or taps into a higher power than they do is insulting. The NFL is full of maniacally driven grinders who’ve overcome incredible odds to reach the pinnacle of their profession, and many of them are clean-living and well-mannered, too.
While few NFL players seem to have a problem with Tebow on a personal level, I know plenty who are put off by the mythology and the holier-than-thou fan base that lionizes his every accomplishment and perceives negative depictions of his ability through a persecution-complex-tinted prism.

Thanks to whomever posted this for pointing out (at least implicitly) that Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow may be a (severely overrated) QB, but his natural position is DB.

Kevin Spain of the New Orleans Times Picayune (which, for my money if the coolest-named newspaper in America) writes that unlike the last few SEC participants in the Sugar Bowl, Arkansas’ players, coaches and fans, seemed absolutely giddy to be headed to NOLA (I know I am–at least as much as I can ever be considered “giddy”).
I found it interesting that Florida failed to sell out it’s full allotment of tickets last year for Tim Tebow’s last collegiate game. By “found it interesting” I mean I shared a mean-spirited laugh with my inner hater when I read that.
