You have spoken and I have heard the requests! This week’s cuties are dedicated to the fine men who spend as much time in the mirror as you do! Ladies with these cuties around, hide your hair products or just save time and stock up because you just might find him going through your supply faster than you do, but if I had one of this week’s cuties under my roof, he could have all the hair products he needed to keep his hair tight and right! While they are of the zodiac sign Leo, I would rather tame their hearts than their gorgeous hair! Yes, ladies as hard as it might be, you must resist the urge to wrap your hands up in these gorgeous locks!!! So……as always you know what to do….enjoy!!
#16 Cleveland Browns, Wide Receiver
This cutie holds a special place in my heart for all of the support he has given Sideline Pass! It also doesn’t hurt that he is a homeboy from around the way, DMV in the house!!! That’s stands for the DC Metro area (DC/MD/VA) for everyone outside the beltway (lol)! All I know is Josh is so fine he can hang at any “crib” he wants with those beautiful locks but beware the only person putting their hands in his flowing mane is his hair stylist and his wife (lol)! Between his hair, pretty skin and gorgeous smile, I can’t help but be mesmerized by this young up and coming star. Oh it doesn’t hurt that he is a beast on the field as well! Flying under the radar as an undrafted free agent in 2005, everyone in the NFL
knows his name now. Selected by the Cleveland Browns, this former Kent State quarterback played special teams and as a kick returner he averaged 24.5 yards and set a franchise record in 2005 with 1,094 return yards. In 2007, Cribbs recorded his fourth kick-off return touchdown a 100 yard return run against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 10. In 2009, Cribbs was added to the Browns improved offense as the starting number two receiver. Despite being the one bright spot for a dismal Browns team for four years, in early 2010 stalled contract negotiations almost cost the Browns one of their most productive players. Thankfully for the die-hard “Dog Pound” and Browns fans everywhere in March 2010 Cribbs signed a three-year deal to keep in the “heart land” state. Cribbs has shown that he is worth every penny (and more) the Browns spent on him earning a selection to the NFL’s All Decade Team for the 2000s. As fine as he is, Cribbs has earned a spot on our list!
#52 Outside Linebacker, Green Bay Packers
This former USC Trojan is truly Spartan with his beautiful golden locks! I’m talking about none other than sexy Clay Matthews III! Hailing from a prestigious football family, his father Matthews Jr., played more than 19 seasons in the NFL for the Browns and the Atlanta Falcons and his Uncle Bruce Mathews was inducted in the NFL Hall of Fame in 2007, Clay Matthews III is making a name for himself for his skills as well as his looks! Drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the first round with the 26th pick in 2009, Matthews was voted Rookie of the Week for week 10 in the 2009 season and was added to the 2010 NFC Pro Bowl team when he replaced Chicago Bears Lance Briggs. In addition he holds the Packers record for most sacks in a season by a rookie. In college this linebacker shared the stage in college with fellow classmate and cutie list selection Brian Cushing. Despite his football lineage, Matthews got his spot on the USC Trojans the old-fashion way – by earning it as a walk-on and through hard work and a dedication to strength and conditioning. He was rewarded with a full scholarship. Ladies, I don’t know about you, but as fine as Matthews is, he doesn’t have to walk-on the Cutie List, he was recruited top of the class!
#84 Wide Receiver, Baltimore Ravens
“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” Kahlil Gibran
Ladies, if you weren’t jealous of what a wonderful job I have, then you should be jealous because this beautiful piece of eye candy is sitting right in my backyard! I think I need to take a trip down I-95 to B-more. In addition to my sexy Ray Lewis, the Ravens have outdone themselves and added T.J. Houshmandzadeh to the roster. If I were much, much, much older, I might be experiencing hot flashes looking at this man! Really….Really…Really…. it is just not right for a man to be so fine! While most sports analysts can’t pronounce or spell his name, he’s often affectionately known as “Who’s Your Momma” for his ability to out play defensive players. The only thing I have to spell is fine, fine and more fine!! After a nontraditional start (he dropped out of high school and earned a GED and went on to community college prior to being offered a scholarship at Oregon State) this sexy wide receiver was drafted by the Bengals in the 2001 draft in the seventh round. Trust and believe he didn’t have to wait that long to be added to our list!! Often overshadowed by former teammate, Ochocino Johnson, Houshmandzadeh is an offensive weapon. While he was hampered with injuries in 2005 and 2006 he finished the 2006 season with 90 receptions, more than 1,080 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2007 Houshmandzadeh was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time, with his 112 catches tying him with Wes Welker of the Patriots for the most in the NFL. He then left the Bengals and signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, but had an unproductive season with the team. Now after signing a one year deal in September 2010 with the Ravens, female fans up and down the I 95 corridor are hoping this hottie stays around in Maryland a lot longer!
