Top Ten Most Overrated Athletes

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Oscar De La Hoya
62Carlos Tevez

50 appearances 8 goals for argentina. sucks - nickthedick

63Derek Jeter

Seems like a genuinely good guy, but boy did I get sick of hearing how he plays the game "the right way". Please. He plays baseball for a living and makes millions of dollars doing it. Lots of guys play "the right way" and they should. It's a stupid game, they aren't really in charge of anyone else's life. If they do their job "the wrong way" people will still be able to get up the next morning and go on with their lives. You're becoming rich by playing a game. Why wouldn't you play "the right way"?

People talk about him like he's better then Mickey mantle - Sabbath

Has been average for the whole second half of his career..280 10HR 65RBI every year. And his defense SUCKS and always did. Gold Gloves my arse.

64Thierry Henry

has more shots off target than any other player, more shots, so of course he's gonna score goals. but he always hides in the really important games. he'll be a failure at barca

Excuse me which idiot said he's a failure

Mate he's arguably one of the best ever

65David Trezeguet
66Floyd Mayweather Jr.

He fights old and slow greats and goes 12 rounds with them, manny fights all types of fighters and ends their careers in two rounds, floyd should be at the top of this list

He said a racist remark about Manny Pacquiao.

Floyd is good but not great. Show Biz makes him look good. Love to see him fight Leonard, Hearns and Duran in their prime win or lose test what he has. Hagler would had killed him, Floyd's defense would had been shattered so forget that!

67Nolan Ryan

Great mechanics but he lost almost as many times as he won. Never had a game where he didn't walk a batter.

68Julio Cesar Chavez
69Cal Ripken Jr.

Great player but overrated when fans start voting him on "All Century teams."

"One of the worst clutch hitters of all time. " The streak might have helped Baseball but hurt the team. Swung a tired bat most Septembers.

70Troy Aikman

After his third super bowl performance, I began to have my doubt about how troy aikman would be ranked among the greatest quarterback of all times. Maybe he's ranked in the top 50 quarterback in the history of nfl. Just maybe.

Played with one of the greatest offensive lines,running backs, recievers ever. When things started turning south, he was just an overated average stiff!

Better than Romo from leaps and bounds. - htoutlaws2012

71Jerry RiceJerry Lee Rice is a former American football wide receiver who played 20 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the San Francisco 49ers.

The guy had a great passion for the game how can he be overrated 20 season not many WR's have gone that far. - htoutlaws2012

He took him 20 years to get those stats - olhrocks

72Amare Stoudamire

Was good player but playing with Nash will always inflate the numbers.

He Sucks enough said 14 ppg and he can't play without a good passer to give him the ball. He needs nash that's why people thought he was good.

73Vince YoungVincent Paul Young, Jr. is a former American football quarterback who played in the National Football League for six seasons.

A really horrible passer and now that the titans have a decent pocket passer in kerry collins there one of the elite teams. With him there only average so yeah he kinda sucks. At least he's mobile - Chris-1

He won rookie of the year with a qb rating in the early 60s!

74DeAngelo Hall

Was he ever considered a great corner? - htoutlaws2012

Sure he's fast... but is he good? Nope - aman28

the most overrated db to ever play

75Michael Owen

Shouldn't be classed as a pro footballer. Always getting praise for nothing.

76Aaron RodgersAaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

Can't agree with you here. The Packers with him and the Packers without him are two different teams. As a Vikings fan, I should know.

77Jeron Teng

The guys can't shoot 3, mid and short range. Doesn't jump high and a defensive players. He's move in the court is all pretty much the same drive, spin, fake then thrown. Can't run isolations on him an reliable in crunch time because he has the tendencies to choke and he can't shoot free throws.

Shoot 3, mid and short range, Doesn't jump high and a defensive liability and he's a choker!
