  • Kyle Orton ranked #7 of least liked players according to Forbes

    Anyone else catch this? It was on ESPN and they were talking about the most over rated players and also showed a list of the least liked players among peers. Kyle Orton was ranked #7. Was he really that bad when he was here? I know he's only a mediocre QB, but I don't remember him having any problems with other teammates, or maybe I just don't remember. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Here's the list:

    Least Liked NFL Players - Source: Forbes
    1. Ndamukong Suh
    2. Jay Cutler
    3. Michael Vick
    4. Randy Moss
    5. Matt Leinart
    6. Tony Romo
    7. Kyle Orton
    8. Santonio Holmes
    9. Mark Sanchez
    10. Brady Quinn

    Obviously it's notable that Cutler and Quinn are on the list as well. I don't remember Brady Quinn being anything but a team player while he was here. What's the scoop on Orton and Quinn? Cutler is obvious, but the other two?

        It must be jealousy due to his devishly good looks.

          Wow, 7 of the 10 are QB's...they get no love.

          Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if 7 of the 10 most liked players are QB's too

                Brady Quinn at #10? Interesting. I remember Quinn making public statements about the lack of a fair opportunity in Denver, and he also bashed Tebow's attitude at one point, but that's it.

                    Is this most unliked amongst fans?

                    I think it is.

                    I am more interested in that list about the most unliked players amongst NFL peers.

                    That is the telling one. Kyle Orton? I dont know what he did to be "unliked."

                          I don't remember anyone hating on Orton from the locker room. Just found it odd that he showed up as #7 in the entire NFL. My guess is that he kind of showed that he wasn't much of a team player last year and put up a fuss that he should be starting even though he's an average QB at best.

                            I like Orton as a person

                            Just hated his pocket toughness and lack of clutch play as a QB.
