In sports you hear all the time, "he is overrated", " he's not that good", "so and so is better". Let's take a look at the term overrated. What makes someone overrated? Who actually is overrated
Whenever an athlete steps foot and their field of choice there are certain expectations for that athlete. As the player improves the expectations become higher. Some people expect alot from an athlete based on prior experience. The problem is when you expect improved performance from an athlete that hasn't inproved in enough areas to actually make the athlete better. For example, a wide receiver who catches alot of deep passes but leads the league in dropped balls.(hashtag T.O.) Good athletes are good at certain aspects of their sport and great athletes are good at all aspects of their sport.
Another reason an athlete is overrated is because they are too flashy. They bring alot of attention to themselves. You have players celebrating getting a first down or stealing a base, be a team player and celebrate your teammate making a good play. These athletes are playing more for there own stats then the team winning. An flashy player would rather look good and lose instead of look bad and win.
My next three post will be of athletes that are overrated, Chris Bosh, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Tony Romo. Stayed tuned and let me know what you think.
