07:56 AM ET 10.24 | As it turns out, fans of the country's most popular sport like quarterbacks, seemingly humble receivers and members of the Green Bay Packers. Who they don't like: quarterbacks, cocky pass catchers and Dallas Cowboys. ... The most-liked player in the NFL is Troy Polamalu, the crazy-haired, high-energy defensive back from the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose appeal rating registers at 63 percent. Not much surprise there -- talent, all-out effort and a roster spot on a nationally popular team go a long way with fans. The league's least-liked player: Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the second overall pick in 2010 whose early popularity slipped into reverse as he developed a reputation for dirty play.

Just how everybody likes it.

that ain't changing anytime soon. As long as JJ is in love with Garrett and Romo they are going backwards.

Strangely, I was hoping Harrison would have been least liked. Since we aren't winning games, it would be almost as good to win polls. It seems to be enough for college fans.

Troy Polomalu finished ahead of Kate Upton?

I don't know whats worse, having one of your teams players on the naughty and nice list or being completely irrelevant like my Cleveland Browns? I think the latter is worse!

Suh a dirty player? No way.......

Troy is a non factor now, not close to the player he used to be.... ala Bob Sanders of the Colts.

Suh is great, dude just has a little edge to him. It's because his name means " House of Spears "
