Thats how his peers look at him, thus feel he is overrated.
The only person that gives Tebow a ton of Credit right now is Skip Bayless. The hype you speak of is what I'm talking about when I say guys like Tebow and Sanchez are getting attention. No one is actually calling these guys elite and that's what it would really mean to be "overrated." I am saying that the players voting for Tebow and Sanchez have misapplied the term.
