Colin Kaepernick has some great intensity to go with his rockin’ bod and millions of dollars

When it comes to football, women have the most colorful, inconsistent answers to the question of whether or not they follow the sport. Our responses will vary from a confident “YES!” to an indifferent “eh.” The problem is that you’re asking some of us the wrong questions. Don’t ask us who our favorite teams are and don’t even bother quizzing us on team mascots. For some of us, the only football jargon we know is quarterbacks. Every woman knows the business of at least one quarterback from any team, even if they can’t tell you the color of their jersey. If you’re one of the few women who doesn’t know of any quarterbacks to check out on Sundays, don’t worry. I present you a coveted list of the best-looking quarterbacks that should be on your lock screen as of yesterday.
Jimmy Garoppolo, New England Patriots (Eastern Illinois)
One of the criteria to being drafted as a quarterback for the New England Patriots must be Academy-Award looks and a butt chin because Garoppolo’s butt chin could totally rival Tom Brady’s butt chin. With Garoppolo, you hit the trifecta — tall, dark, and Italian. Fingers crossed he makes a mean lasagna and his mom didn’t follow him out to Boston.
Aaron Murray, Kansas City Chiefs (Georgia)
Here’s another young draftee with a baby face that looks more suited for a glee club than the football field. Still, he has a nice smile that reaches his eyes and he has said nothing but good things about Kansas City, so you know he’s loyal.
Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs (Utah)
After losing his starting quarterback role to Colin Kaepernick, Smith could have pulled a Drew Bledsoe and just stopped existing but instead he took the hint, went to Kansas City, and marked it as his flex zone. Then there are his eyes which are so beautiful it will make you forget this guy is so prone to shoulder injuries he will probably be out of a job soon. At least he’ll look good in a sling.
Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers (Nevada)
There’s his caramel complexion, his smile, his nose, his tattoos, and his Beats by Dre commercial. Kaepernick has numerous endorsements on top of his $126 million contract from the 49ers. I’m not saying money talks, but driving a Bugatti through your old hood on your way to see your mom will make your life — as will paying off your loans in one go.
EJ Manuel, Buffalo Bills (Florida State)
He is husband material. The type of guy who will introduce you to his pastor before his parents. Just don’t expect a Super Bowl date anytime soon unless it’s at home watching two other teams. He’s a Christian who looks up to his father above everything. So basically, he’s the black Tim Tebow. But with a job.
