Michael Vick, the currently injured quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, is apparently the most disliked player in the entire NFL. ESPN reported on Oct. 21, 2013, that a new survey taken by E-Poll Market Research released by Forbes shows that Vick just isn't popular at all with that many people.
A survey of 1,100 people showed that more than half of them (53 percent) disliked Vick.
He wasn't always the most popular player even before the dogfighting ring issues came about years ago and he did prison time. Since his release in May of 2009, his popularity has gone even further downward.
Coming in second was the rookie linebacker of the San Diego Chargers, Manti Te'o. 48 percent of those surveyed said they didn't like the young linebacker, and a lot of it had to do with his fake dead girlfriend that he had while at Notre Dame.
Third place of the top 10 most disliked players in the NFL belongs to Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh. He has already been fined more than $200,000 during this short three-year NFL career and it doesn't appear as if they are done.
Rounding out the top five are a pair of quarterbacks in Ben Roethlisberger and Mark Sanchez.
