Ray Lewis Voted One Of NFL's Most Over-Rated

A Sports Illustrated poll asked 180 NFL players who they thought were the most over-rated players in the league and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was in the top five mentioned.

A Sports Illustrated poll asked 180 NFL players who they thought were the most over-rated players in the league and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was in the top five mentioned. Lewis actually finished as the 5th most over-rated player, which is surprising considering the level of respect he reportedly receives from his peers around the league.

The New York Jets took the top two "honors," with QB, RB and personal punter protecter Tim Tebow holding the top spot, followed by his teammate, QB Mark Sanchez. Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo came in third, followed by Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who was right ahead of the Ravens veteran.

Although Lewis may not be quite the player he was in his prime, his presence and leadership on the field is far from over-rated, especially if you were to ask the players around him, much less those others around the NFL that solicit his advice more than any other player, perhaps in the history of the league.

The story appears on NFL.com, with links to Twitter comments by Tebow as well as another meaningless poll.
