The 6 Most Overrated Figures in Philadelphia Sports History
In the last few weeks, we took a look at some of the most underrated athletes in Philadelphia sports history. The guys who deserve more love. Guys who either went under the radar or get more hate than they deserve. But now that we got through the positivity, let’s get negative for a bit. While we may underrate all those guys we mentioned in the other articles, there are plenty of guys we give way too much love to, even now.
These are not guys we overrated at the time, and then eventually grew tired of. Ben Simmons is not on the list, because at this point no one overrates him. people hate the guy. Every time I read an overrated list it’s full of guys no fan actually likes. I read one that had Nnamdi Asomugha. Who still overrates Nnamdi? Eagles fans realized who he was a few games into that season. If someone can read your overrated list and agree with every person on it, something has gone wrong.
This list is exclusively for the guys at least some fans still love. The players, Coaches, and GMs who get overloved either because they are likable because they pandered to Philly fans, or for various other reasons. Even now, some of these guys still get a pass, even if we heap criticism on other people for doing to the same thing. Philadelphians get a lot of crap for being too hard on some players. But we are also very easy to please. And there are certain guys we give passes, that do not deserve them at all.
Not to say all of these people were bad at their jobs. Some of them were. But some I really like. But there are just certain aspects of either their game or their accomplishments, that we as fans overrate.
