Tim Tebow was voted as the NFL's most "overrated" player by a group of his peers. Adding further insult, Tebow absolutely ran away with the title by a crushing margin.
I know... it's absolutely shocking that a guy who's most important role is on punt team yet he garners more media hype than anyone in the NFL would be considered overrated by other NFL players...
If that wasn't bad enough, the real QB for the New York Jets, Mark Sanchez finished tied for 2nd behind Tebow in the poll. Tebow took 34% of the total votes to earn the top spot while Sanchez finished with 8%. Not surprisingly, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo also finished with 8% to split the #2 spot.
Michael Vick finished next with 4%.
I typically think of these polls as useless, but coming from a group of NFL players, it at least shows you how guys around the league think of some of the most overhyped players in the NFL.
Browns fans never cease to amaze, or embarrass me... this is no exception. This video shows a Cleveland Browns fan who apparently REALLY wanted $450....
Or maybe he was just super pumped up about the Browns first win of the season and first after an 11 game losing streak.
This hilarious parody video was shared with me by a twitter friend. it's in response to the NFL Network's depressing feature "Cleveland 95" where they detailed the years leading up to and after the year in which former owner, Art Modell moved the team to Baltimore.
This absolutely cracked me up! ENJOY!
Trent Richardson has made a habit of talking a bit of trash heading into games against good defenses. He's exchanged jabs with Rey Maualuga of the Bengals and while I don't see any issues with what he said entering this week's game against the New York Giants, apparently Osi Umenyiora did.
Richardson was quoted saying:
“I think that if we cover the edges and run hard, no doing all this juking and that, one move and go, I think we can have success in the running game,” Richardson said.
No big deal, right? Just a guy who is confident in his ability and sees opportunities for success if he and his team executes, right?
Osi didn't see it that way saying:
“If (Trent) looks on tape and he thinks he sees some candy, come try and get it,” Umenyiora said Friday.
Osi's teammate, Mathias Kiwanuka, also got in on the action:
“If he proves it, I’ll shake his hand and tap him on the butt. If he doesn’t, I expect never to hear from him again. The thing that he’s got to learn is that in this game, talking doesn’t mean anything.”
Osi apparently enjoys trash talk with running backs after his feud with LeSean McCoy of the Eagles who happened to rack up 123 yards rushing on Osi's Giants last week.
