ESPN's NFL Nation recently did a survey with 155 players in the NFL today, asking them different questions about quarterbacks in the league today.

Reporters asked the players surveyed several questions on the NFL's passers including who their favorite rookie quarterback is, who is the quarterback they would most like to sack, and who is the quarterback they think will win the most Super Bowls in the next ten years.

The 155 players that took part in the survey were also asked which quarterback in today's NFL do they think is the most overrated, which is bound to cause a split amongst all NFL fans.

The NFL players picked Eli Manning of the New York Giants as their most overrated quarterback in the league today despite the fact he has won two Super Bowl throughout his career. He topped the voting in this category with 14% of the vote.

According to ESPN, Manning ranks number 30 in total quarterback rating (QBR) in the past five seasons since he turned 31 years old, and the Giants have only managed a 31-39 record since that point.

Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts finished second in the voting with 11% of the vote, and Baltimore Ravens' Joe Flacco finished third with 10% of the vote. Jay Cutler of the Miami Dolphins and Sam Bradford of the Minnesota Vikings finished joint fourth with 7% of the vote each. In total, these four players received 72 votes together of the 155.

Luck has missed 14 games in the past three seasons because of injuries, and there's a chance he might not play at all for the Colts in 2017.

Flacco is in the same boat as Manning, as he hasn't done much since Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII in the 2012 season. He ranks number 26 in QBR, and the team is 32-32 in his starts. One player even said: "I think he's kind of living off that Super Bowl."

Some might be surprised with Manning's inclusion on this list due to the fact he's won two Super Bowls during his time in the NFL, but because he's done nothing since his last Super Bowl win, he's been voted by players as one of the most overrated quarterbacks in the league today.
