No surprise here.  Guess who was voted “most feared” in the NFL by his peers?!  Report after the jump…




One has the reputation as the dirtiest player in the league while the other is possibly the league’s most dangerous.

So it is no surprise that two Detroit Lions topped the first in a series of ESPN.com’s NFL Nation anonymous surveys of more than 320 players, “Who is the most feared player in the NFL?”

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh led all players with 61 votes (19 percent), and wide receiver Calvin Johnson followed with 58 votes. No other player received more than 30 votes, and 48 players had at least one vote.

“If it’s feared from the context of they don’t want to play against me and they are worried about how I may affect the game and affect the offense, it’s definitely appreciated,” Suh told ESPN.com. “It’s definitely seen as a plus and a positive. Guys have respect for you, just like guys have respect for Calvin.

“I’m surprised I edged him out, but hopefully I don’t have to edge him out and we can just be co-winners. I prefer that.”
