Outside the cities of Chicago and Detroit and their surrounding areas, it’s probably safe to say Jay Cutler and Ndamukong Suh do not have a ton of fans. A recent survey conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research turned that assumption into more of a reality. According to Forbes, the survey asked fans to rate a number of players based on likability and it revealed that Suh and Cutler are the two least popular players in the NFL with only 19% and 21% appeal, respectively. The two most popular players in the league were Troy Polamalu (63% appeal) and Drew Brees (62% appeal). Not exactly shocking, to say the least. Cheap shots like this one have resulted in Suh being called one of the dirtiest players in the league. Cutler has always been known as a crybaby, and it likely didn’t help this year when he shoved one of his teammates and stormed away from his offensive coordinator. Michael Vick also made the least liked list, and we don’t need to get into the history there. As for the players who are the most popular, you have to wonder how much of a role advertising plays. Polamalu, Brees, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers all made the top five on the most liked list. What do they all have in common? Funny commercials. Whether it be Head & Shoulders or the discount double check, those are faces were are exposed to all the time on TV. That almost certainly plays a role in the rankings.

  • Arron Rogers and Romo, are best liked
  • There are many highly touted first round draft choices who have come into the league with huge hype and then faded into whining obscurity while blaming everyone but themselves. Vince Young is one the best recent examples but hardly the last, and Cam Newton is rapidly headed down the same road. As for Suh's pretty much universal distate among other players, it's hardly surprising. Someone who targets other players with the deliberate intent to injure is regarded as the thug he is. This is their profession, the means by which they support their families and prepare for a future after football, which occurs in less than five years for the vast majority of players. A career-ending injury is bad enough; when it's deliberately inflicted, the perpetrator deserves contempt.

  • It's Aaron Rodgers not Arron Rogers, oh am I whining? Who cares.
  • First of all, unkyjack, the qb for the Saints is Drew Brees! Second of all, where in the hell did you get that Drew is a snitch?....you have lost your insane mind! I and others who know the real truth would love to know where you read that information, which is not true.People such as yourself love to write false statements to draw ire, and more than not, you succeed. But know this, you are a liar and everyone who knows and loves Drew Brees knows he is the furtherest thing from a snitch, buddy. So my advice to you is to get a life and stop writing stupid and ignorant responses to articles you have no knowledge about!
  • Cutler a crybaby?!! Holy sheet, I don't believe Cutler was rated more a crybaby than Cry my a Phillip Rivers?! Cutler may be no great catch, but even the refs know and hate Rivers. He is whining at them CONSTANTLY throughout the game for a flag...when in reality, it's cuz he can't perform. Next time Rivers play, just WATCH him and the Refs. Every play (that he doesnt complete) he is looking at the refs for a flag. The refs know its coming and practically tell him to shut up before he gets an unsportsmanlike. What little respect I have for him is from the fact that he took the MNF loss to the Broncos like a man in the post game intv.
  • How do you see all the comments?????????

    Got it. Gotta go to the forum to see em all
  • No white dude has ever been slapped on the hand for using a racial slur. They get fired. If you don't want people to call you n.... then don't use the word yourself, regardless if there is an R or A at the end of the word. If a white person call a black person that with an A at the end of it, they still cry racism. Right? This dude is just a loud mouth over opinionated jerk anyway...FIRE HIM!

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mark Cuban will play the President in 'Sharknado 3'

Oh, this is because of the Shark Tank thing, right? We get it. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, also a “shark” investor on the hit ABC show, has been cast as the President of the United States in Syfy’s Sharknado 3. While you try to comprehend that, also consider that conservative pundit Ann Coulter will be playing his vice president. Hopefully, we see those two in a situation...

Report: Darrelle Revis likely to hit free agent market

The New England Patriots will have to hope that Darrelle Revis values winning over money. The Patriots are $11.2 million over the salary cap, so it’s looking unlikely that they will be able to retain the All-Pro cornerback on his $20 million option for the 2015 season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Monday on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” that he expects Revis to hit free agency...
