Top 10 NFL Players Every Girl Should Know

Well, it’s that time again.  The time when everything for your man stops on Sunday and no plans can be made because that’s when his team plays.  The time when quaint dinners are interrupted because he has to check his phone for fantasy football updates and trades and stuff (if you need to know about fantasy football check out this post where I break it down so that you too can understand).  Now that football season is in full swing, I thought I’d kick this season off right with the Top 10 NFL Players Every Girl Should Know.  Here is your list to the who’s who for this NFL season and a few little factoids to make you sound interesting when you chime in to your favorite guy’s football discussion with his friends.  Trust me, he will be really impressed you know a little somethin’ somethin’ about these NFL key players…you’re welcome!

1. JJ Watt (Justin James if you’re nasty)

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Houston Texans[/li]
[li]Position: Defensive End (he hits people reeeeeeeeeal hard)[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: This 290 pound HE-MAN is just a Wisconsin boy who loves his mama and loves to whip and nae-nae like the rest of us.[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: Yes he’s a wrecking ball on the field, but he’s a sweetheart in the streets. With more money than he knows what to do with, he shops at his neighborhood HEB, and lives with his mama during football season…on a side note, people in Houston will cut you over talking bad about JJ Watt.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.[/li]

2. Russell Wilson

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Seattle Seahawks[/li]

[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: This Virginia native is an exotic blend of Native American and Black[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: Besides the fact that he has led the Seattle Seahawks to a Superbowl championship win, he’s also dating Ciara which gives him a lot of street-cred[/li]
[/list]

 

3. Rob Gronkowski

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: New England Patriots[/li]
[li]Position: Tight End(on the offensive line, blocks people and sometimes catches balls and runs with them)[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: Known party boy of the Patriots[/li]

4. Aaron Rodgers

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Green Bay Packers[/li]

[/list]

5. Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Seattle Seahawks[/li]
[li]Position: Running Back (gets hand-offs from the QB, blocks, catches passes) [/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: I can’t tell wether this guy is a “character” or miscreant. He has been arrested several times (hitting a lady with his car and leaving the scene, possession of a concealed weapon, DUI charges) but then you hardly see him around not toting a bag of skittles and slurping them out of his hand.[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: Lynch is known recently for his “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” stunt during media day. As reporters were asking him questions, his only comment for the 4 minutes he bothered to give them was “I’m just here so I won’t get fined”. Which…Ok, you are making millions of dollars to run around a couple games a year, you mean to tell me you can answer a few football related questions for 15 minutes?! Sounds pretty bratty to me! Curse you NFL for making Marshawn Lynch answer questions 1 day a year…the absolute nerve. See his snarky answers here [/li]
[/list]

 

6. Dez Bryant

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Dallas Cowboys[/li]
[li]Position: Wide Receiver (Catches the ball and runs fast with it)[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: Dez has the classic “started from the bottom now I’m here” story. Mom had him when she was 15, she was arrested when he was 8 for dealing drugs, stayed in one home after another, but made it to the NFL. I want to root for him so badly because hails from right outside my hometown. HOWEVER he was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor for allegedly striking his birth mother in 2012, so there’s that.[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: Unfortunately for the Cowboys Dez will be out for 4-6 weeks due to foot surgery. When he returns, see if you can spot him doing his signature “X” move after he scores a touch down. He even made a whole brand for himself around the letter “X”…only in the NFL [/li]
[/list]

7. Tom Brady

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: New England Patriots[/li]
[li]Position: Quarterback[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: Although there are whisperings of a possible road to Splitsville, Tom of course is married to the beautiful Gisele Bundchen and sometimes he moonlights as a model himself…I mean, look at him![/li]
[li]What You Need to Know About Him: Ugh…Deflategate…So the Patriots were playing the Colts and there were some under- inflated balls. Supposedly Tom Brady knew about the balls being under-inflated…blah blah blah. It was a HUGE deal and he got suspended for 4 games but then they took it back and he wasn’t suspended, BLAH! Read here if you want to know more about the ins and outs of Deflategate. I on the other hand am so over it. Let Tom play, he gives the girls something to look at when we are subjected to watching football with our man.[/li]
[/list]

8. Peyton Manning

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Denver Broncos[/li]
[li]Position: Quarterback[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: 5 time NFL MVP…he is very respected amongst all the other NFL players. No one has anything negative to say about him, in fact, a lot of NFL players have a man-crush on him and are geeked out when they get to play against this legend.  Charles James III of the Baltimore Ravens walked up to him when playing against him and told him “I love you”.[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: He’s a stand up guy with values in this order “faith, family, friends, and football”. He’s just a Good ‘ol southern boy and you or your man may secretly root for Peyton Manning even though he is playing your home team…it’s ok[/li]
[/list]

9. Cam Newton

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Carolina Panthers[/li]
[li]Position: Quarterback[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: This boy is serious about his education! While other rough necks in the NFL were out partying and putting their hands on women, Cam was continuing to take classes at Auburn in the offseason in order to finish work on his degree in Sociology. He graduated this past Spring. [/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: I mean…with a face like that, he can sell me yogurt anytime! No, seriously, I went out and bought Oikos brand yogurt the other day just because Cam Newton told me to. Watch this and be mesmerized.[/li]

[list style=”heart”]
[li]NFL Team: Dallas Cowboys[/li]
[li]Position: Quarterback[/li]
[li]Fact to Make You Sound Like You Know About Sports Things: Tony is also an amateur golfer[/li]
[li]Why You Need to Know Him: One time he dated Jessica Simpson. Jess started to come to the games to watch her boo play and coincidentally he flopped every time she was there. One thing you don’t do is mess with Dallas Cowboys fans Jessica! Because the fans thought she jinxed Tony, she got unsavory welcomes whenever fans saw her there. Now he’s happily married to a “fan approved” Dallas journalist.[/li]
