NFL players say Redskins have hottest cheerleaders


(2007 photo by Preston Keres - TWP)


I usually try to stay away from cheerleading coverage, but some stories are too newsworthy to ignore. This week's issue of ESPN The Magazine includes an "NFL Confidential" poll involving 65 NFL players, asked about a variety of on- and off-the-field issues. And in at least one category, the Redskins come in first: Hottest Cheerleaders!

Washington came in first with 17.6 percent of the vote, followed by the Dolphins (16.7) and Cowboys (14 percent). The Mag reported that most players didn't want to comment, but one veteran gave a choice quote.

"Everybody has really, really good things to say about the Redskins cheerleaders," he said. "Not that I ever look. I better leave it at that."

You'll recall that two years ago, Ben Roethlisberger said that the Redskins made their cheerleaders stretch in the visiting team's tunnel as a distraction, and that the commissioner banned "the practice some dubbed the Redskins Rule." Quite a body of work they're amassing.

The Skins feature two other times in the ESPN the Mag poll. Albert Haynesworth came in second in the "Most Overrated Player" category with 11.4 percent of the vote, behind only Terrell Owens (20.5). And Mike Shanahan tied for second in the "Last Coach You'd Want to Play For" category, behind the overwhelming winner, Eric Mangini.

I have a friend who claims to have nailed one of the cheerleaders behind some bushes at Seacrets in Ocean City a few years back. Sadly for me, I wasn't there, so I cannot comment on the veracity of this story.

What I'm getting at here is, yes, the Redskins cheerleaders are smoking hawt.

The Redskins made their cheerleaders stretch in the visiting team's tunnel?

Brilliant.

"You'll recall that two years ago, Ben Roethlisberger said that the Redskins made their cheerleaders stretch in the visiting team's tunnel as a distraction, and that the commissioner banned "the practice some dubbed the Redskins Rule.""

I wonder if those cheerleaders knew the danger they were in tempting Big Ben like that!

We have had the hottest cheerleaders for years. "Thank you Dan Snyder" is what you all should be saying.

At least something on the field is apparently top notch!

Of all the pictures to choose from you had to pick the one where they're wearing parkas?

To my esteemed Redskin brother, they have not been called the Redskinettes for a number of years now. They are known as "The First Ladies of Football"
