The most liked player in the NFL

Postby llipgh2 on Wed Oct 24, 2012 11:26 am

Is...

Troy Polumalu. 63% of the participants in the poll picked him.

Frankly, I'm surprised Ben didn't make the least liked list.

I'd have guessed Drew Brees and he's up there at 62%. No one hates the Saints and he's a nice guy in everything I've seen.

I never minded them until they were shoved down our throats after KAAATTTRRRIIINNNNAAAAA. Then it was "who dat" crap constantly. I also can't stand the obnoxious pre game rap or whatever it is they do.

The most-liked player in the NFL is Troy Polumalu, the crazy-haired, high-energy defensive back from the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose appeal rating registers at 63%. Not much surprise there — talent, all-out effort and a roster spot on a nationally popular team go a long way with fans.


his demeanor, soft-spoken sincerity, religious/spiritual but not obnoxiously, that's why he's liked. and obviously the hair and being on the steelers gets him noticed, but the all-out effort and talent could be many players.

surprised by rodgers. seems like a punk.

I really do not get the Rodgers hate. To me Drew Brees acted twice the punk and baby anyone did during the bountie scancal. And Im a huge brees fan. But the way he conducted himself thru that soured me on him a bit.

you don't get to be surprised by "the rodgers hate." i'm the only one that mentioned it and he was just voted one of the most popular players.

i don't like the championship belt thing. well, i don't mind it actually, but i mind a QB doing it. on field cockiness ruffles my feathers. especially from QBs.

I thought it was a stupid move, but didn't really care for the most part... but the Discount Double Check commercials pushed it over the edge.

And that's why I hate Brees. Between the bounty scandal and the lockout his nonstop public display of incessant whining was just pathetic. I'll give him credit for the amount of charity work he does, but I think he's a whiney baby jagoff.

I guess I don't pay attention to football other than during games, but I didn't notice the Brees stuff.

it's fun to watch half those players be humiliated by defeat? i don't know. i do prefer to be wound up by opponents and increasingly wish their demise. but in general, there's just a certain look in the eyes of certain quarterbacks when they're doing well that's so smug it's worse than any DB jumping up and jamming his helmet into a WR's face after a play.
