Cutler one of the most disliked players in the NFL

Cutler one of the most disliked players in the NFL

A month ago, Forbes named Brian Urlacher one of the 10 most liked players in the NFL. Another Bears player was named in another Forbes list but this time, it's not so flattering.

Jay Cutler was named as one of 10 most disliked players in the NFL, among a couple convicts, an accused slime ball, a player who quit after he signed a $100 million contract and a few underachieving-overhyped quarterbacks.

According to the Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research, Jay Cutler was on the list because:

"Sitting out a chunk of last year's NFC title game with what some thought was a minor knee injury drew a string of critics, including tweets from NFL players. Fair or not (no one but Cutler could know how much his knee hurt), critical word travels fast on social media. Cutler's earlier rifts with the coaching staff in Denver, which traded him to Chicago in 2009, didn't help his public image either."

Again... in defense of Cutler, he wanted out because he didn't want to play for a coach that didn't know what he was doing. He was later fired and set the franchise 10 years. Since the trade from Denver, his body language, facial expressions and personality have been under a microscope.

Here's who made the list:
1. Michael Vick
2. Plaxico Burress
3. Ben Rothlisberger
4. Albert Haynesworth
5. Jay Cutler
6. Chad Ochocinco
7. Vince Young
8. Carson Palmer
9. Tony Romo
10. Jeremy Shockey
