When the Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh took down Bears QB Jay Cutler with a suplex maneuver Monday night, the vicious hit didn’t evoke as much public outcry as one would expect. Could it be because the wrestling match had two villains and no “good” guy?
According to a fan survey published by Forbes, Suh and Cutler are the two least-liked players in the NFL.
Suh (19 percent appeal rating) and Cutler (21) finished just ahead of Eagles QB Michael Vick (23) as the least-liked players, according to a poll conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research.
The most popular: Steelers LB Troy Polamalu with an appeal rating of 63 percent, seven spots ahead of Bears LB Brian Urlacher (57).
