According to a recent study, a certain Pittsburgh Steeler is the most popular player in football.
Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research recently teamed on a study to discover who reigns as the NFL's most-liked and least-liked performers.
According to Forbes.com, "players' appeal numbers were scored based on the percentage of those whose response was to 'like' the player or 'like him a lot.' "
The rest of the popular kids: Drew Brees and Charles Woodson (62 percent), Peyton Manning (59 percent), Aaron Rodgers and Rob Gronkowski (58 percent), and Robert Griffin III, Brian Urlacher and Donald Driver (57 percent).
Not every quarterback ranked high. An ugly combination of on-air crankiness and on-field failure wreaked havoc on Jay Cutler (21 percent). Also failing to win over fans were Michael Vick (23 percent), Matt Leinart (26 percent), Kyle Orton (27 percent), Tony Romo (27 percent), Mark Sanchez (31 percent) and Brady Quinn (31 percent).
Entirely meaningless? Possibly.
