The folks at Maxim certainly know how to draw eyes to their magazines.
But if you look beyond the photos of scantily clad women (which, admittedly, is hard to do), there is actually some text that formulates words and sentences within Maxim’s pages — and it’s pretty good.
The magazine’s September 2012 edition features its “NFL Biggest Bad@$$es” list, and two Redskins populate the 20-man list.
And don’t worry Redskins fans — you made the list, too.
Inside linebacker London Fletcher (ranked No. 11) and punter Sav Rocca (No. 20) are considered by Maxim as among “the twenty toughest, meanest, most fearless mofos on the field.”
The Redskins’ Hogettes, meanwhile, were ranked the “NFL’s Most Bad@$$ Fans.”
Here’s what the magazine had to say about Fletcher:
“A 5’10″ inside linebacker is impressive enough, but a 5’10″ inside linebacker who’s basically indestructible? That’s Mr. Fletcher, the man who once called himself “the Susan Lucci of the NFL” for his lack of trips to the Pro Bowl — until last year, that is, when the 37-year-old led the league in tackles. By the numbers: 224, consecutive games played.”
And the blip about Rocca:
“Why the hell is a punter on a list of the NFL’s biggest bad@$$es? Because said punter is the oldest rookie in NFL history, stands 6’5″, weighs 265, and was a star Australian rules football player. No helmet, no problem! By the numbers: 33, Rocca’s age as a rookie, the oldest ever.”
Maxim ranked Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis No. 1 on this particular list.
Joining Fletcher and Rocca from the NFC East is New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who ranked No. 13.
Question: Did the folks at Maxim get it right? Who would you rank as the biggest and baddest Redskin? Feel free to comment below.
