Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal released the NFL's top 25 most popular jerseys recently, with Jay Cutler, the new quarterback of the Bears, who may or may not have been described by Brian Urlacher as a part of the female anatomy, landing the top spot.
Following Cutler are two members of the Super Bowl champion Steelers, with Troy Polomalu and Ben Roethlisberger grabbing the second and third spots, respectively.
Tony Romo is fourth on the list, the highest of any Cowboy, maintaining his popularity and standing as the ultimate love-him-or-hate-him figure in the NFL. Jason Witten was fifteenth, ranking just behind Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald and just in front of Atlanta's Matt Ryan. Marion Barber is the final Cowboy to crack the top 25, sandwiched between Joe Flacco of the Ravens and the aforementioned Urlacher respectively, at number 18.
Terrell Owens' Buffalo Bills replica was popular enough for number 7.
The disappointment of Dallas' 2008 season was reflected in the numbers, as the team fell to third in sales after ranking number 1 as a team in both 2007 and 2008. The Steelers, conversely, benefitted from their 2008 Super Bowl win, as they took over the top spot. The Chicago Bears ranked number two as a team, with the Giants and Patriots rounding out the top five.
The ranking is determined by NFL.com's NFLShop, taking into account total sales between April 1-August 7 of this year.
