You know the trope about quarterbacks getting all the girls? That doesn't seem to be true when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Dick's Sporting Goods released data on NFL jersey sales nationwide, and the chain compiled a map showing the most popular jerseys among women.

Quarterbacks dominated female jersey sales in 29 states, including:
- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had the most popular jersey in Washington, Idaho, Nevada and New Mexico
- New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees dominated Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and, bizarrely, Vermont
- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was top dog in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Wyoming
- The Manning brothers Peyton and Eli, quarterbacks both, won Montana, Colorado and Oklahoma between them.
Of course, a few notable non-quarterbacks sold state-winning amounts of jerseys as well, with the Pittsburgh Steelers leading the way in that respect.
While longtime Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't have the top-selling jersey in a single state, Steelers safety Troy Polamalu and his luxurious head of hair won the hearts (and dollars) of women in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, while Steelers tight end Heath Miller had the most popular jersey in Arkansas and North Dakota.
