In the movie “Moneyball,” one of the Oakland A’s scouts isn’t high on a player because the baseball prospect has an ugly girlfriend; such a fate suggested a “lack of confidence” to the long-time talent evaluator. It’s an interesting bit of amateur psychoanalysis, one that probably isn’t far from the truth.
Thus, there may be a reason to take a look at the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of athletes that goes beyond good old-fashioned ogling. It tells everyone something about a player’s self-confidence.
Yep, that’s a stretch. But it was reason enough to get the editors of cover32 scrambling through the tabloids, Instagram accounts and various other places on the internet to find the hottest WAGs of current NFL players; it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Once the top picks were gathered, it was time to assemble this week’s Power Rankings, rating each NFL team from one to 32 based on the hottest WAG on their roster. Here are the results (keep in mind, there are no losers in this one):
32. Baltimore Ravens
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
30. Carolina Panthers
29. Buffalo Bills
