That look Cam Newton gets when they tell him he’s sitting behind Tim Tebow again

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (1) was the second most-hated quarterback in the NFL, but that’s not what should get him riled up.

Public Policy Polling, a respected company out of Raleigh, recently polled football fans.

Tom Brady was the NFL’s most popular quarterback. Carolina’s Cam Newton finished ninth, one place behind Tim Tebow.

Brady also was voted the league’s least liked quarterback. Newton was second.

The least liked team was the New England Patriots. The Dallas Cowboys were second.

Lastly, 45 percent of respondents said Lady Gaga was a good choice to perform at halftime.

My own poll: 65 percent of television viewers won’t watch Lady Gaga. If the game is good, fans will fill their plates,talk about what they’ve seen and predict what they’re going to see. If the game is bad, they’ll leave.
