Good morning and ROOOOARRRR!!!!!
If there is a surprise in this, it might be that Ndamukong Suh wasn't at the top of this list.
This latest poll of 1,100 people ages 13 and higher by E-Poll Market Research was released to Forbes.com on Monday. The topic was the most disliked players in the NFL.
Suh is one of the most polarizing active players in the league. He is one of the NFL's best talents, but he has been fined and suspended multiple times over the years for hits on quarterbacks and stomps on offensive linemen.
So it isn't a surprise he is on this list at all.
Suh came in third, at 43 percent dislike, with only Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and, somewhat surprisingly, San Diego linebacker Manti Te'o ahead of him.
More surprising -- and somewhat confusing -- than Suh's inclusion was that of Detroit running back Reggie Bush. The Forbes photo gallery accompanying the survey mentioned the USC scandal for Bush's placement on the list at No. 10.
The survey said 22 percent of people polled disliked Bush.
In all, only three non-quarterbacks made the top 10: Te'o, Suh and Bush.
And now Lions news from around the Interwebs:
