All the details here:

Giants QB Eli Manning named as one of NFL's most overrated by SI players' poll


By the way, in case you were wondering, Brett Favre finish first in this year's players' poll with 13 percent of the vote. Tony Romo was second with 10 percent. Terrell Owens was third with eight percent. And Ben Roethlisberger finished right behind Manning, in fifth place, with five percent.



Thoughts?

Tony Romo is definitely overrated... That guy hasn't done JACK and gets all this crazy hype and I just don't get it! The others on this list, I don't agree with. The list is what it is, just a list.

it's because he's the Cowboys QB, the cowboys are always over-hyped! Kind of like Notre Dame football.

Probaly, but that has no bearing on the other kiddies being jealous.

In my book Tony Romo is the most overrated.

I would give honorable mention to Julius Peppers. We are paying him $16 mill and he aint done nothing and most of his sacks last year were against the weak part of our schedule. He has been known to take plays off.

I can see where maybe Favre is overexposed, but overrated..no.. Favre, Manning and Roethlosberger are all great QBs. Romo on the other hand, not so good!

but this comes from the players themselves, who's a better judge of talent and what really is going on in the current NFL?

certainly not bloggers and people like you and me with a keyboard and internet access.

I'd take the players opinions far more over anybody else.
