Once again, it's time to revive my ranking of the NFL's hottest quarterbacks! You're so excited. There's been many changes in the league since my last list in 2013, some new blood, if you will. Ahem.
First, some ground rules: I tried to stick to starting quarterbacks, since if we also considered backups, it'd be mayhem. Next, while I tried to judge objectively, you should know I am a hardcore Baltimore Ravens fan, so while it wasn't an issue, I'd have a hard time placing, say Big Ben or the Red Rifle on the list.
And one big caveat, since I live in Maine and surely have lots of readers who are Pats fans: Tom Brady is not on this list. I cannot abide by his small mouth and his dented chin. Which is too bad, because when he's on the field in his pony ankle socks, he's pretty cute. Anyway, if that bothers you feel free to move along, write your own list with him as number 1, etc.
And with that, away we go:
1. Cam Newton
Cammy (as I like to call him) has always been in the top 5 and this year he's rocketed up to numero uno. He's got a beautiful smile, a sense of humor, and looks good in a suit. I'm hoping he goes to the big game this year - he's fun to watch and finally has a good team to support him.
2. Marcus Mariota
3. Ryan Fitzpatrick
Fear the beard! I love a man with a righteous beard. While Fitzy seemed kind of sad after being booted from the Bills, I hope he finds some success with the Jets. No one wants to see a sad beard.
4. Aaron Rodgers
While Rodgers doesn't fall into the "model hot" category, he's got a great personality that bumps him up a few notches. I love his sense of humor - he seems like someone you'd enjoy hanging out with in real life.
5. Joe Flacco
6. Russell Wilson
7. Josh Freeman
8. Alex Smith
The last three spots on the list are dedicated to dudes who aren't hideous. Let's just say there is not a lot of depth in the roster at the position of hot quarterback. Alex Smith is kind of cute - in some pictures he even manages to look like Ryan Gosling and in others, Bradley Cooper.
9. Kirk Cousins
10. Matt Ryan
Ugh, Matt Ryan is not even that cute. I am going to great lengths to avoid including Brady, aren't I? (I even squinted and looked at Jay Cutler. Desperate.) But Matt Ryan has typical football player looks, so he squeaks in at the bottom of the pile.
Tell me who does it for you in the comments! I won't judge - I've heard it all.
