Evaluating the NFC North Starting QB Girlfriends/Wives

The rumor mill spins out of control with alleged Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari, and Aaron Rodgers-Erin Andrews trysts, so we realized something about NFC North QBs— they can really pull some tail. And we haven’t yet mentioned the hundreds of times Brett Favre allegedly cheated on his wife, (We’ll skip discussing the whole alleged Jenn Sterger SEXTING incident) or Matthew Stafford‘s gorgeous former University of Georgia cheerleader who made sports blog “news” (do they make air quotes strong enough for me to convey my condescension for referring to that as “news”?) when she recently got implants.

So, to quote the Black-Eyed Peas, “let’s get retarded in here,” and discuss the most mindless topic of all: celebrity gossip. What follows isn’t a ranking or rating of any kind, but a list. I’ll let you decide for yourself which NFC North QB, the leader of the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, or Detroit Lions, landed the best arm-candy.

By the way, if you want to read about actual football, read our ranking of the QBs themselves here. In that column, we don’t use the word “alleged” 3,000 times in the opening paragraph.

Ways the Detroit Lions Can Achieve Six Wins Minimum

The Detroit Lions are a symbol of futility around the National Football League. Jim Schwartz and company are looking to change that perception this upcoming season. The Pittsburgh Pirates are seen much the same way in Major League baseball and have been buried in their division for well over a decade. In a strange scenario, the Detroit Lions have been penalized with such high draft picks because they have taken so much guaranteed money to get them suited up and into training camp. That is all about to change with a new collective bargaining agreement imminent.

The first thing that the Lions need to do is harness and develop all of the young talent that they have accumulated. This not only includes Ndamukong Suh of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, but also high draft picks in Jahvid Best and obviously Matthew Stafford. They are eager to prove themselves worthy at the highest level and they have demonstrated the ability to do so at every previous stop of their football journey.
