The Best And Worst Quarterback Bodies According To Their Shirtless Pictures

The range in body shape is quite amazing given that these are all professional athletes with the exact same job.

Posted on

Quick note: For the sake of this article, we are only looking at the starting NFL quarterbacks who have shirtless pictures floating around the internet. Which means guys like Russell Wilson, Philip Rivers, Matt Schaub and newcomer Geno Smith are automatically out. Okay, let's begin.

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions


I don't know what Matthew Stafford's diet is during the regular season, but during the offseason it has to contain so many double cheeseburgers. He has the kind of body that just always looks bloated.


Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos


Peyton Manning doesn't necessarily have a bad body, it's just not the body you'd expect from a professional athlete. It's too bad for him that he's going up in this shirtlessness competition against mobile quarterbacks that occasionally have to run more than ten feet at a time for their job. Not a lot of cardio in Peyton's life.


Christian Ponder, Minnesota Vikings


I know! I can't believe Ponder has one of the best shirtless bodies, either. But that hairless torso does not lie. And now I know why Samantha Steele married him. Actually, I don't know why. Is he funny? He must be funny.


Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers

You know how food has the serving size on the back of the package? I wouldn't be surprised if Colin Kaepernick actually follows that. This fool probably eats like six chips and then he's done. And no joke, I didn't even know abs could be that big without steroids. I don't, man, something's up. I think it's his metabolism. HIYO!

(Best) Josh Freeman: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The left was Josh in high school? Maybe? I don't know. But the right is pretty much what he looks like now. So clearly the dude is cut, but I can't put him in the Top 5 without a better angle of what he looks like today.

And there you have it. Think we left someone off? Prove it.
