With Super Bowl Sunday just around the corner, we here at Shine thought we'd do a rundown of the hottest quarterbacks of all time (gotta love this job). By "hot" we are not referring to a player who can lob a 60-yard bomb. We mean straight up sex appeal.
Why are QBs such QTs? Usually the "face of the franchise," quarterbacks are the most visible member of the team and the one most likely to achieve celebrity status. The New York Times crunched some numbers and found that pretty boys are even paid for their looks: a handsome quarterback even earns an average of $300,000 more per year than his stats would predict.
Check out the slideshow for our top ten picks (in alphabetical order).
Honorable mentions include: Troy Aikman, Kyle Boller, Drew Brees, David Carr, John Elway, Matt Hasselbeck, Trent Edwards, Babe Laufenberg, The Brothers Manning, Don Meredith, Joe Montana, Warren Moon, Brady Quinn, Phil Rivers, Tony Romo, Johnny Unitas, Jim Zorn.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if we've passed over your QB crush, please let us know in the comments below.
