PHOTOS: Super Studs Of Super Bowl XLVIII — Who’s The Hottest?

They are ready to rumble, tumble and tackle, but are you ready for some football? Usually, we tune in for the halftime show, but with no Beyoncé or Madonna to quench our thirst for diva (no offense Bruno Mars, you’re cool and all, but you’re no Queen Bey) we decided we needed to dig deeper to find something to watch in between those expensive commercials. And, boy, did we ever! Four quarters for this Super Bowl showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, so we found four players from each team worth keeping an eye on.


Eric Decker

Eric Decker #87 / Wide Receiver

Hands down, heels to the ceiling, he’s the hottest guy on the field tomorrow. The end. Model good looks, and some serious on-the-field moves, Decker is kinda of a demigod.


Joel Dreesen #81 / Tight End
We’re not going to call him the poor man’s Decker, but when you have to compete with so much pretty in a teammate, being second or third banana ain’t all that bad.

Ronnie Hillman

Ronnie Hillman #21 /  Running Back
He’s just a baby at 22, but he’s like a normal person size, not a gridiron behemoth.  At 5’9” and 190 lbs. he doesn’t seem all that unattainable…if you could catch him.

Wesley Woodyard

Wesley Woodyard #52 / Linebacker
Cool name aside, he’s got guns and swagger for days. And that smile. C’mon now!



Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson #3 / Quarterback
Okay, so the Broncos’ QB may have been beaten by the ugly stick (hey, Manning’s got mad skillz—you can’t have everything) but the Seahawks’ QB puts the capital Q in Qute!

Clint Gresham

Clint Gresham #49 / Long Snapper
Everyone needs a ginger to pine for, so why not take your chance when he’s on the field for punts, field goals and extra points?

Christine Michael

Christine Michael #33 / Running Back
It’s probably the first time you’ll drool over somebody named Christine without faking it. Yeah, his body rocks it.


Percy Harvin #11 / Wide Receiver
Yes, he’s got one hell of a handsome mug, but truth be told, combine that with muscles, and we’re all done. Touchdown indeed!

    I don’t think Manning is THAT bad! He’s cute in his own way. I think I like his personality more. Eli is cuter but Peyton has a strong presence.

  • BJ McFrisky

    Peyton Manning was “beaten by the ugly stick”? Do they all need to look like Tom Daley to satisfy Queerty’s reporters?
    Being an ace player always makes an athlete hotter, and Manning is so goddam precise—not to mention so boyishly charming for a 37-year old—that you can’t help but like him. No, he wouldn’t be number one on my fuckable-fantasy-gridiron lineup, but he’d certainly rank within the top five or ten, and WAY above these guys.
    Eye of the beholder, and all that—but Manning certainly is not unattractive.

    @BJ McFrisky:
    Thank you! My thoughts exactly. Personally, Manning has an adorable personality. I also,think Decker is a definite looker and I first noticed him when he was at Minnesota as a golden gopher.

  • Lyceius

    @BJ McFrisky: Agree with you 100%

    Peyton would be an amazing cuddle…Guys with heart are attractive too…

  • LadywithaLamp

    I guess I can see the attraction football has for some gays,wide receivers and tight ends. Why don’t we just bring back gladiators and wild beasts? It all smacks of brutishness anyway.I can certainly think of a few Christians that I would love to see thrown in starting with all politicians.Then the Duck Dynasty folks and kin can go next. I adore the fact that human beings think that they are somehow civilized a delicious delusion.

    Clint Greesham is HOT!! Nice to see a sexy ginger on the list. But where is Wes Welker?

    Peyton is definitely not ugly. Very likeable personality and what’s not to love about a 6’5″ frame?

  • JennyFromdabloc

    @cmhbuck: That’s what I’m talking about!

  • Kangol

    Russell Wilson, and a huge number of the Seattle Seahawks (Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, etc.) win hands down.

    Just like they kicked the homely media fave Peyton Manning’s and the Denver Broncos’ tucheses!
