A recent Nielsen poll asked NFL fans which players they find most appealing. The results form a list of the most and least liked players in the league.

Based on the results, here are the two prototypes:

The ideal NFL player: A curly-haired, Super Bowl MVP quarterback who wins Dancing With the Stars and is totally fiesta.

The imperfect NFL player: A smirky, cigarette-dangling ex-con who stomps on opponents on national holidays while beer bonging and demanding to be paid in straight cash, homey.

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is the most-liked player in the league, with a positive rating of 63%. Drew Brees (62%), Charles Woodson (62%), Peyton Manning (59%) and Aaron Rodgers (58%) rounded out the top five. Overall, seven of the top 10 most-liked players are quarterbacks. Three are Green Bay Packers.

The least liked player in the league is Ndamukong Suh (19%). His Monday night wrestling partner, Jay Cutler, was close behind with 21%. Michael Vick (23%), Randy Moss (24%) and Matt Leinart (26%). The top two quarterbacks on the Dallas Cowboys depth chart -- Tony Romo and Kyle Orton -- were in the bottom 10.

Some thoughts:

-- Kyle Orton? What did Kyle Orton ever do to America?

-- Where's Tim Tebow? WE MUST KNOW WHERE TIM TEBOW FALLS ON THE RANKINGS.

-- Robert Griffin III is already in the top 10, which is no surprise. He's getting so much hype that I think he's polling at 8% in the presidential election and is threatening to carry D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

-- Polamalu at No. 1 and Suh in last place aren't surprising in the least. Head and Shoulders commercials work wonders.

-- Tom Brady isn't in the top 10. For real? Matthew Stafford is more liked than a guy who won three Super Bowls and plays on national TV 10 times a year? Are people still mad at him for running out on Bridget Moynahan?

-- People dislike Jay Cutler more than Michael Vick? Apathetic, full-faced and coupled with a reality TV star makes him worse than a convicted felon who wasn't exactly universally beloved before his downfall?

-- Seriously, where's Tebow?

Surprised Orton is on there

People HATE and people LOVE Tebow. To split to get votes one way or another. Surprised that Stafford is on the liked list.

AussieChiefsFan 10-25-2012 12:08 AM

Also do people really like Donald Driver THAT much?

KChiefer 10-25-2012 12:31 AM

What I'm seeing on the Liked list are veterans from huge franchises that have a jerk on there squad that fan's of other teams hate more.

On the Hate list I'm seeing guys that have royally screwed at least one franchise, and/or have done something idiotic in the public eye.

Gronk? Really? Great player but the dude is the definition of meathead. He'd fit right in on Jersey Shore.

How could Jay Cutler be #2 most-hated?

He's a LEADER.

MahiMike 10-25-2012 06:52 AM

I'm just happy that a current and ex-Chief made a top 10 list.

More surprised Quinn is. Orton probably got voted on by former Bronco and Bears players.
