NFL's most disliked player?
Michael Vick still hasn't been able to shake his association with a dogfighting ring, as he's been named the NFL's most disliked player in a Forbes.com fan survey. More than half of NFL fans surveyed had a negative view of Vick, putting him ahead of players like disgraced safety Manti Te'o and weekly fine risk Ndamukong Suh. Surveying the list, the secret to staying off it seems to be: Don't get in legal trouble, don't be awful, don't have too much success and don't have a reputation as a whiner or malcontent. Simple, really.
Last year, Luke Kuechly was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. The season before? Von Miller. In all, nine of the past 10 winners have been linebackers, meaning the likes of Arthur Brown, Jarvis Jones and Manti Te'o must be favorites, right? Or will someone else -- maybe a certain safety in Arizona -- emerge? Rank the candidates!
