The NFL's most disliked player


The NFL's most disliked player

CREATED Nov 8, 2011

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may not receive MVP votes this season, but one thing is for certain: He is the most disliked player in the NFL.

According to a poll conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research for Forbes Magazine, 60% of the people polled said they dislike Vick.

Vick has returned to the NFL after a prison term which was the result of a dog fighting scandal. He has become a "star" again and recently inked a $100+ million dollar contract with the Eagles. But the damage caused by the dog-fighting scandal caused irreparable harm.

Second on the list was New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress at 56 percent. Burress is also back in the league after serving a prison sentence for shooting himself in the leg with his own handgun that was carried into a New York City nightclub. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who was accused of sexual assault last year but wasn't charged, was third.

New England Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth came in at No. 4 at 46 percent and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler finished fifth at 38 percent.

The rest of the top 10 include: Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco (35 percent), Eagles backup QB Vince Young (32 percent), Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer (31 percent), Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey who were both at 29 percent.
