A poll finds that 34 percent of the public has an unfavorable opinion of the Super Bowl MVP, who will lead the New England Patriots into their season opener on Thursday night. That compares with just 21 percent who view Brady favorably.

The new poll was taken Aug. 28-30 — before a federal judge invalidated Commissioner Roger Goodell’s four-game suspension of Brady, finding “significant legal deficiencies” with the punishment.
