Pre-Super Bowl Sentiment Analysis
After taking a look at the most-talked about Super Bowl players yesterday, we’re going a little deeper to examine how much heat the top 2 players and their coaches are taking.
We chose the choicest insulting keywords from Monday’s overview (“suck,” “hate,” and “f**k”) and looked at how often they were associated with each team’s quarterback, their second-most popular player, and their coach.
Over the past 3 days, Patriots team members have taken the most heat by far. Most of this ire is directed at quarterback Tom Brady, whose last name was associated with 820 of the nastiest insults over the past week. Giants quarterback Eli Manning came in second, followed by tight end Gronkowski of the Patriots. Both coaches and Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz got off fairly easy, coming in far behind the two quarterbacks.
