The criteria for our All-Hot NFL team is in the name — who we think is hot. Performance factored in only in as much as the stars got more TV time and therefore more exposure.
This list is totally subjective, so comment away if you have other preferences. And we did not scour the rosters of all 53 players on 32 teams and realize we left off a lot of hot players — if only they played in Speedos or jocks, it would make it so much easier.
Selections were made by Jim Buzinski and Jeremy Brener. The offensive line was picked by Jim Allen, who focuses on the guys in the trenches. The toughest call was tight end, since there were many we could have picked from. We picked offense, defense, punter, kicker and even a coach.
Since we always get some comments about how we're sexualizing sports and ruining it for LGBT athletes, I'll preempt that by quoting Aaron Rodgers: "R-E-L-A-X." We're gay guys who notice the good looks and hot bodies of players and there's no crime in that. We hope the players on our list are flattered.
