Power Ranking the Sexiest Fanbases in the NFL
With the draft long over, NFL fans have little to look forward to before next season.
In this time of immense pain and emptiness, fans need a reason to get up in the morning.
Looking at sexy fans seems like the ideal way to spice up this offseason.
While the NFL dealt with more than its usual share of controversy, fans were stressing over a potential lockout.
With football now back on schedule, we can all admire these sexy fans with no doubts about our teams playing next season.
Here are the hottest fans from all 32 teams.
32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Although they missed the playoffs last year, the Buccaneers went 10-6 and are poised for a playoff run next season.
Led by quarterback Josh Freeman and coach Raheem Morris, this team seems more prepared to give their fans deserved recognition.
Adding defensive ends Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers through the draft only solidifies the Buccaneers.
31. Cleveland Browns
It's not far-fetched to assume that this fan stays in her house all day and photographs herself in Browns attire.
While she is clearly loyal and supportive, this fan can only help the Browns so much.
Peyton Hillis will be counted on more to improve an offense that ranked 31st last year with 16.9 points per game.
30. Jacksonville Jaguars
This fan is obviously thrilled with the drafting of a potential star.
In drafting Blaine Gabbert, the Jaguars are in the search for their next franchise signal-caller.
While Gabbert will most likely watch and learn for the next year or two with David Garrard under center, the team is excited about his oozing potential.
Their fans are ecstatic.
29. Denver Broncos
After a dismal year, the Broncos took Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller with the second overall pick.
While he may upgrade the defense, they might need this fan on offense to distract opposing tacklers.
The drafting of Von Miller was baffling in that he is a 3-4 linebacker but the Broncos just switched back to the 4-3.
Interesting with Marcell Dareus still on the board.
28. Chicago Bears
27. Detroit Lions
This fan is clearly excited to watch reigning rookie of the year Ndamukong Suh play with rookie Nick Fairley.
Not only is the defensive line now elite and the Lions ready to create a stir, but the fanbase is at the top of its game.
If only Matt Stafford could stay healthy.
26. Carolina Panthers
At least Cam Newton has something to look forward to next year.
Now that the Panthers have two young quarterbacks competing for the position, they can focus on the rest of the team.
And the fans.
25. Buffalo Bills
There is a reason that Ryan Fitzpatrick's statistics blossomed under the watchful eye of head coach Chan Gailey.
With a total of 4,104 yards and a quarterback rating career high of 70.0 in five years, Fitzpatrick found his groove in breezy Buffalo this past season, throwing for 3,000 yards, 23 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and a rating of 81.8.
Most players would thrive in front of sexy fans like this.
24. Arizona Cardinals
With the Cardinals seemingly bereft of a franchise quarterback despite the solid play of Max Hall and John Skelton last year, they chose not to add talent at the position in the draft.
Perhaps it's a testament to how confident they are in their current gunslingers, although drafting Patrick Peterson doesn't quite help their offense, despite him being possibly the best player in the draft.
This fan appears to be ready to go under center.
23. St. Louis Rams
22. Cincinnati Bengals
Dalton to Green could be a potent combination for a long time.
With fans like this rooting them on, these two rookies are excited to rebuild the Bengals' reputation and create something special.
Only time will tell.
21. Miami Dolphins
This loyal fan knows her Dolphins history, wearing the jersey of Hall of Fame linebacker Zach Thomas.
After taking Florida Gators lineman Mike Pouncey in the first round of the draft last month, the Dolphins are hoping for a magical year behind an improved line.
Why would Ronnie Brown not want to play in front of these fans?
20. Seattle Seahawks
This member of the Seahawks dance team is also a loyal fan who excites viewers throughout the season.
Pete Carroll seems to have this team headed in the right direction with a playoff appearance last season despite being 7-9.
Now to find a franchise quarterback.
19. San Francisco 49ers
Firing Mike SIngletary after the team went 6-10 was seen as a necessary move, albeit controversial.
It would have made perfect sense if the 49ers decided to hire this fan as coach instead.
The players would've undoubtedly listened to her.
Unfortunately, it's not promising that the team plays in arguably the worst division in the NFL and still cannot find success.
Hopefully Colin Kaepernick is the answer, because Alex Smith isn't making a believer out of anyone.
18. New Orleans Saints
Nobody said athletes had to be successful to have their jerseys sold.
Reggie Bush may be with a different team next year, to his dismay, but he has always had one of the top-selling jerseys.
This fan makes him look good.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers
The NFL's No. 1-ranked defense last season improved even more when they drafted Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward with their first pick.
Fans like this will make the transition to the NFL much easier for the new rookies.
Expect the Steelers to once again dominate the regular season.
16. New England Patriots
The exuberant Gisele is most certainly a Patriots fan.
Married to Tom Brady, she clearly lives the glamorous life in which she turns on the television and sees her long-haired husband going through the everyday motions of an NFL game.
Every hit makes her groan, every completion causes her eyes to sparkle with dollar signs.
15. Green Bay Packers
Packers fans will never stop bragging about this past season's play, but it's truly the fans that deserve the credit.
The Cheeseheads may be the best 12th man in the league and continue to get in opponents' heads.
A.J. Hawk has to smile at this one.
14. Indianapolis Colts
If the Colts captured sexy fans on camera as often as they drafted running backs, viewers would be significantly happier.
After going 10-6 last year, it became apparent that the older Manning needed more protection.
Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo will be a welcomed addition to that line.
13. Tennessee Titans
While this isn't the first time this fan has been featured in a slideshow, she deserves numerous viewings.
Rookie Jake Locker may be happier on the bench where he can see the fans.
Vince Young may want to stick around.
12. San Diego Chargers
Chargers fans are naturally disappointed with missing the playoffs last year but still have prolific talent that will most likely bring them back next year.
With a healthy Ryan Mathews and sexy fans like this, there's no telling how talented this offense can be.
Now for the defense...
11. Minnesota Vikings
While the two fans on the left seem to be dreaming of a Vikings Super Bowl victory, the one on the right is more realistically angry that the team took quarterback Christian Ponder as high as the 12th overall pick.
He may succeed, but the team could've traded down to get more picks and have their choice of similar talent in the second round.
One thing is certain...these girls also received provocative texts from Brett Favre.
10. Atlanta Falcons
While they may have gotten criticism for giving up next year's first-round pick in a trade with the Browns to draft wide receiver Julio Jones, their receiving corps is now in the upper echelon of the NFL.
Jones might experience culture shock after going to the University of Alabama.
The competition in the NFL isn't the only part of the game that is more developed.
9. New York Jets
While fans will never get tired of Jenn Sterger pictures, it can't be denied that other sexy fans fill the New Meadowlands Stadium as well.
LaDainian Tomlinson has deservedly garnered plenty of attention from the NFL world.
Especially the ladies.
8. Oakland Raiders
7. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys will look to make it back to the playoffs next year after an unsuccessful year in which Wade Phillips was fired and these fans hidden from the public eye.
Most people expect the Cowboys to make noise next season, if only to see more of sexy fans on television after the year is over.
Another fan who's made multiple slideshow appearances.
6. Baltimore Ravens
After taking cornerback Jimmy Smith 26th overall in last month's draft, the Ravens are ready for another dominating defensive year.
Third in points allowed with 16.9 last year, the Ravens are expecting Ray Lewis to continue to lead this feisty squad.
This fan's picture will have its own corner of the chalkboard for extra motivation.
5. Philadelphia Eagles
Many questioned whether Michael Vick could regain the form he once had and he surpassed expectations.
Looking at his fans, it's not ludicrous to believe he was inspired and focused.
Once DeSean Jackson can learn to avoid flipping the ball before crossing the goal line, this team will be poised for a Super Bowl appearance.
4. Houston Texans
These must be the fans who David Carr was distracted by when he was sacked 76 times during his rookie season.
Cortland Finnegan must have said derogatory comments about Andre Johnson's fans that caused Johnson to lose his cool before their fight as well.
3. Kansas City Chiefs
Despite getting dominated in the playoffs, the Chiefs had a successful season and finally found the formula to winning the AFC West...
Matt Cassel has established himself as a solid option at quarterback and the Chiefs finished last year ranked first in rushing with 164.2 yards per game.
Dwayne Bowe must love to jump into the crowd after a touchdown.
2. New York Giants
The Giants are as mysterious as this sexy fan.
While they appear dominant some weeks, they resemble a bunch of dead fish the other half.
Eli Manning needs to stop staring at his sexy fanbase and avoid sliding headfirst into the ground.
The rest will work itself out.
1. Washington Redskins
At least the Redskins are the No. 1 ranked team in something.
After trading for Donovan McNabb, most fans expected a huge turnaround.
McNabb clearly couldn't handle the aesthetically distracting stands and was benched for journeyman Rex Grossman.
No wonder Albert Haynesworth stopped trying.
The bench is a better view.
