The Trendiest NFL Jerseys this 2011

One of the major sports of the country today is football. No wonder that there are many people who are watching it as well as wear also the embroidery digitizing designed jerseys of their favorite football players.

Today’s post will be all about the jerseys of famous football players that are so trendy on many customers. Now, here is the list of the Best Selling NFL Jerseys this 2011. Check this out.

Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys (82)
Witten is a fan favorite in one of the most highly valued franchises in professional sports. No. 82 sold more jerseys than any other player at his position.

DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles (10)
Wide receiver and return man for the Philadelphia Eagles, DeSean Jackson wears the ninth most popular jersey in the NFL this year. He’s known for making big plays, with a 60-plus-yard touchdown reception in each of his four NFL seasons. 

Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys (19)
Austin is known for his life on and off the field: His two Pro Bowl selections and 1,000-plus-yard seasons in 2009 and 2010 were nearly overshadowed by his relationship with socialite and TV personality Kim Kardashian.

Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys (9)
The jersey of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a perennial best-seller, ranking seventh on’s list for the second year in a row. Although Romo has suffered several injuries throughout his career, he’s been able to rank fourth all-time in both yards per attempt (8.1) and career passer rating (95.5).

Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints (9)
Although Drew Brees has seen a relative drop from 2010, when he ranked second, the New Orleans Saints quarterback remains one of the most-purchased jerseys in the NFL this year. 

Clay Matthews, Green Bay Packers (52)
Matthews has received Pro Bowl honors in both of his years in the league and helped the team to its first Super Bowl title since 1996 — undoubtedly boosting his popularity among fans. In 2010, Matthews also came a close second to Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu in the voting for Defensive Player of the Year.

Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh Steelers (43)
Popular for both his on-the-field play and his characteristic hairstyle, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is another perennial fan favorite. His rank has moved up from 2010, when Polamalu jersey sales were sixth on’s list. Troy is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, and also holds the distinction of having the best-selling defensive player jersey on this list.

Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles (7)
After being sentenced to prison and suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s player conduct policy in the wake of a dog-fighting scandal, public perception of Mike Vick was at a low, with animal lovers lashing out against him. Although he returned to play for the Philadelphia Eagles in a limited capacity in 2009, it took until the 2011 season for his jersey to gain traction as a top seller.

Tom Brady, New England Patriots (12)
A two-time Super Bowl MVP and six-time Pro Bowl selection, Brady also was named the best player in the NFL prior to the 2011 season. He holds a long list of NFL records and accomplishments, including the most passing touchdowns in the regular season (50), most consecutive postseason wins (10), and he is the only quarterback to start and win three Super Bowls before his 28th birthday.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (12)
The best-selling NFL jersey of 2011 is that of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, reigning Super Bowl Champion and MVP. Rodgers threw for 3,922 yards in 2010, with a passer rating of 101.2. He continued his success into the 2011 season, leading his team to a 4-0 start, throwing for 12 touchdowns and rushing for two.

These jerseys are best selling that there are even many fans that resort to embroidery digitizing on some of their jerseys with the number of the jersey of their favorite football superstar. I, for instance often get a digitizing service every time I want  a shirt of mine to be custom made with embroidery design that I love, eh.

Sports that Women Love to Watch

For almost two months, I've been in a hiatus with regards on writing on this blog. I’ve always want to write especially when Nadal, my favorite tennis player, failed to won over Djokovic, yet there are so many things that hindered me on posting some updates on this blog. Nevertheless, now I'm back!
The sports world is quite full of men who dominate it, yet we can't deny the fact that there are also many women athletes that many people idolize (even at the point of wearing their custom digitizing jersey logos)  and they are also newsworthy as well. Women viewers for instance are seen by as a powerful audience to see what sports are “in” into feminine tastes. Here are some of these sports and events this 2011 that drove many American women audience:

Daytona 500
February 2011 Total viewers: 15.6 million 
Women viewers: 5.5 million (35.4%)

NBA Finals (Miami vs. Dallas)

June 2011 Total viewers: 17.3 million 
Women viewers: 6.3 million (36.3%) 

NHL Stanley Cup Finals (Boston vs. Vancouver)

U.S. Open Men's final (Djokovic vs. Nadal)

Now, the last mentioned sport, which is tennis is one of my favorite sports since  Federer and Nadal are my favorite athletes. Sadly none of them won in the US Open 2011, but instead its Djokovic.  Looking upon unto the last photo, I remember that the two famous tennis player (Nadal and Djokovic) are both endorsers of two famous  clothing apparel wherein many fans try to buy or just copy a custom digitizing outfit of them. Djokovic is the endorser of Adidas while Nadal on Nike.
