NEW YORK - Apparently not everyone is a fan of Tebow-time.
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was named the most overrated player in the NFL for the second year in a row by 34 percent of the 180 NFL players surveyed in a recent Sports Illustrated poll.
Last year Tebow, who was then a member of the Denver Broncos, was also named the most overrated player, but then he only had 22 percent of the vote.
Interestingly enough, his teammate quarterback Mark Sanchez came in second on the list at 8 percent.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo also received 8 percent of the vote, followed by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick with 4 percent and then Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis with 3 percent.
The list is rounded up by the two quarterbacks that started in last year's Super Bowl. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady received 2 percent of the vote and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning garnered 1 percent of the vote.
The poll shows just how quickly tides can change in the NFL. In May, the NFL Network released its player poll of the top 100 players and Tebow came in at No. 95.
Tebow led the Broncos to their first AFC title and first playoff win since 2005 last season. He was traded to the New York Jets in March after the Broncos signed coveted free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning.
Full list of the most overrated players:
Tim Tebow - 34%
Mark Sanchez - 8%
Tony Romo - 8%
Michael Vick - 4%
Ray Lewis - 3%
Tom Brady - 2%
Eli Manning - 1%
- According to a recent poll conducted by Sports Illustrated.
