On Monday night, the Lions' Ndamukong Suh put a hit on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler that caught a lot of attention. Granted, Suh alread had a reputation around the league as being a "dirty" player, an idea reinforced by the fact that he was flagged for nine personal fouls through his first two seasons -- the most in the league over that period. Although his hit on Cutler appeared to be relatively clean, the end result of it -- seeing Cutler go down to the turf face first -- certainly hasn't helped his case. However, according to Forbes, America doesn't seem particularly sympathetic to either player involved. In a list published by the online version of the magazine on Wednesday, Cutler and Suh were named as the "least-liked players" in the NFL. According to an article, Nielsen collaborated on a poll with E-Poll market research, and then scored players based on the percentages of people who "liked" them. Of course, the reasons each player is so disliked are completely different. As we already mentioned, Suh is perceived as a dirty player who makes unsafe hits, while Cutler has thoroughly gotten a reputation as a "whiner" over the course of his career (see our quote below). On the flip side of the poll, the NFL's most popular players include Pttsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polumalu and -- surely enough -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Of course, the scientific basis of this poll can be called into question, but it does seem to confirm some trends. Fans tend to like workman-like players and positive attitudes, and dislike entitled ones who complain. Oh, and Dallas Cowboys. People seem to universally dislike Dallas Cowboys. So, despite the controversy over the Suh-Cutler hit, don't expect anyone to shed a tear for that pair any time soon.

Cam's not biting anybody's head off or pushing his linemen. He's just disgruntled, and not handling losing well, because, think about it, he basically didn't lose in college."--Warren Moon alleging that the criticism of Cam Newton has a racist tone Tweet(s) of the Night This was tweeted out after Pablo Sandoval's second home run: BREAKING: Kate Upton is now dating Pablo Sandoval. #WorldSeries — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) October 25, 2012 And this one was after the third home run: BREAKING: Kate Upton is now engaged to Pablo Sandoval. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) October 25, 2012   Video of the Night Comedian Kevin Pollak sure has some interesting connections to the Giants.
