(NEW YORK) — New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was recently voted as the NFL’s most overrated player according to a player’s poll put together by Sports Illustrated. Tebow is confused how he wound up number one on the list.
Before the season started, Tebow was also voted as one of the top 100 players in the NFL, which is also a player’s poll.
“Really doesn’t bother me too much,” Tebow said. “The same players this offseason voted me in the Top 100, so I guess there’s several ways you can look at it.”
Tebow tried to rationalize why he’d be on both lists.
“They’re probably just getting a little sick of hearing all the talk and everything y’all have to say,” Tebow told reporters.
Tebow has been used sparingly in his first season with the Jets. He’s completed two of three attempted passes for 32 yards, and has 76 yards rushing.
Mark Sanchez, the Jets starting quarterback, was voted as the second most overrated player in the NFL.
