Many men come up on differing lists of the top sexiest NFL players. Two magazines in particular shared their favorites.

Cosmopolitan Magazine had an article on the “hottest football players out there…”. Included in there list of 11 men were: Tony Gonzalez- Atlanta Falcons, David Anderson -Houston Texans, Terrell Owens- Buffalo Bills, Wes Welker – New England Patriots, Matt Forte -Bears, Matt Cassell- Kansas City Chiefs and so on. These players were telling their turns ons, pet peeves, and how to land a second date. I found Mr. Forte’s most inspiring with his quote “I hate bad breath and bad attitudes”, I assume he must not have morning sex as bad breath is guaranteed. Now, Cassell he’s into that breath thing too, noting a turn off would be if his date said she had garlic for lunch. I would think ‘hey, maybe she loves Italian food as much as I do, great!’. As you can tell, the hottest football players had obvious physical attraction, yet not one insightful statement which might help the ladies better understand what a man wants in a relationship or to help us better define sexy.

It appears many players can score both on and off the field.

I would basically agree with both lists on the physical attractiveness of the selected players, yet is that all there is to sexiness?

I concur with the Huffington Post blogger, Linda E. Savage, in her “What is Sexy” article Feb 5, 2010. She lists 5 things that make a person sexy and leaves the last up to the individuals taste.

“1) Sexy is feeling good, having energy and time to relax
2) Sexy is loving the interaction with a partner and letting them know it: AKA Flirting
3) Sexy is really appreciating the beauty of your partner–their inner beauty.
4) Sexy is enjoying movement, skin contact, touch, smell, taste–all of it.
5) Sexy is thinking about sensual and sexual moments and finding pleasure in the memory and anticipation.
6) Okay, now it’s your turn, fill in the blank: Sexy is __________________”

There is even a website called “R U SEXY” at; they list three main components to sexiness: image, confidence, and attitude. I must admit, I took a low step and completed the test, mostly out of amusement and it determined that I was a “Supermodel Sexy”, which unfortunately challenges any validity to this self absorbed most likely created by two intoxicated college students test. It did however note that I had an average image of myself, high confidence and a great attitude. As I tend to say, I’m cuter than my pictures because pictures can’t show personality. It must be this test assessed my traits in confidence and attitude therefore giving me top honors!

Now I would add: humor, intelligence, personality, character, and caring to the list of whats sexy. If we put all of these together how will we ever find enough men to fill a list of 8, let alone, 8 NFL players?!?!!

Why 8? Everyone’s used to ‘TOP 10′….so I wanted to go to 8 and then you can decide who you would put as the last two.

Surprisingly they are out there

Adrian Peterson rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns as the Minnesota Vikings buried the Detroit Lions 42-10. It was Peterson's first game after missing two outings with a knee injury.

Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was 18-of-24 for 204 yards and two scores as the Vikes won their third in a row and moved to 6-6. That's the same record as Detroit, which has now lost four in a row.

Chester Taylor added 70 rushing yards as the Vikings hit the ground for 216 total yards.

"The whole team worked with each other and our offense made it really easy on us," said Vikings linebacker Ben Leber. "It took the pressure off us and kept it on the Lions offense. It was a great offensive performance today."

Lions receiver Roy Williams was forced to leave the game in the first half with a knee injury,

In other early NFL action:

  • Peyton Manning threw four touchdowns as the Indianapolis Colts (10-2) held on to beat the 8-4 Jacksonville Jaguars 28-25. Jags QB David Garrad was very good, completing 24 of 29 attempts for 257 yards and a couple TDs, but threw his first interception of the year in the fourth quarter on a deflected pass.
  • At 44-years-old, Vinny Testaverde should be closer to relaxing at Del Boca Vista instead of playing football. That didn't stop him from throwing two TD passes in the 5-7 Carolina Panthers' 31-14 win over the San Francisco 49ers (3-9).
  • Rookie QB John Beck threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles and the Miami Dolphins fell to 0-12 with a 40-13 loss to the New York Jets (3-9). The Fins might've blown their best opportunity at a win as they await games with Buffalo, Baltimore, New England and Cincinnati.
  • The Washington Redskins faced an extremely emotional game against the Buffalo Bills following the moving tribute to slain teammate Sean Taylor. Perhaps it was too much to handle. The Redskins (5-7) led most of the way but couldn't hold on as Rian Lindell kicked a 36-yard field goal with just four seconds remaining to give the Bills (6-6) a 17-16 victory.
  • LaDainian Tomlinson ran for 177 yards and two touchdowns and the defense chipped in with eight sacks as the San Diego Chargers (7-5) defeated the 4-8 Kansas City Chiefs 24-10 at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chargers also had three interceptions on the day.
  • Lofa Tatupu picked off Philadelphia's A.J. Feeley three times and the Seattle Seahawks (8-4) took a commanding lead in the NFC West with their 28-24 win over the Eagles (5-7). Tatupu's third interception was arguably the biggest, coming in the final minute with the Eagles in the red zone.
  • Vince Young threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns in rallying the Tennessee Titans (7-5) to a 28-20 victory over Houston. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Titans. As for the Texans (5-7), their slim playoff hopes were extinguished with a second straight defeat.
  • In the "Who cares?" game of the week, the St. Louis Rams (3-9) got their first home victory of the year as Gus Frerotte threw three touchdown passes in the first half to earn the 28-16 win over the Falcons (3-9).

Nnamdi is one of the top defensive players in the NFL; he received the “Whizzer” White NFL Man of the year award in 2009, was selected as a member of the Fox Sports and USA Today’s All Decade Team and as a starter for the 2011 Pro Bowl Team. What is even more impressive is his off the field game: activism and philanthropy. Off the field, education and community service are his mainstays. The Asomugha Foundation operates two primary programs: Orphans and Widows In Need and Asomugha College Tour for Scholars. He joined former President Bill Clinton, actor Matthew McConaguhey , and Marie Tillman at the 2009 Meeting of Clinton Global Initiative University to discuss the importance of global service and student activism. He was named Home Depot MVP 2007 for his community service, Essence Magazine “Do Right Men” 2008, The President’s Volunteer Service Award in 2008, named “Dream Team for Public Service” by the Jefferson Awards for public service and became an ambassador for the United Way of the Bay Area. Finally, he was a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Nnamdi has stretched his talents in the acting field and his credits include: Friday Night Lights, The Game, and Leverage. This man’s community service is sexy enough, let alone his physicality -one can melt at his looks in a GQ spread.
Essence magazine had an article entitled “Eye Candy:Sexy NFL Players 2011″. Now the Essence group- they trumped up the sexiness to 24 men. A few of these men included were, Thomas Jones-KC Chiefs, Braylon Edwards -NY Jets, Troy Polamalu-Steelers, Chris Harris- Bears, Ladanian Tomlinson-NY Jets and even….Michael Vick- Philadelphia Eagles.
I’m watching Monday Night Football. I’m trying to focus my energy on rooting for the Minnesota Vikings, to get them to a 2-3 W-L record instead of letting the New Orleans Saints go over .500. Understandably, the national sports media seems to be focusing on the match-up between Adrian Peterson and Reggie Bush. The more pics they put up, the less I seem to hear about the game, the players, the stats, the strategy. All I see is this…
