Cheerleaders are an important part of the NFL experience, both on the field and off of it. And while they might be particularly good at shaking their pompoms every Sunday, an NFL Cheerleader’s responsibilities require much more than just dancing. A cheerleader is an extension of their franchise–they do everything from calendar sexy photo shoots to hours and hours of community service.
But you might not have known that if you didn’t follow the cheerleading squads on social media, an incredibly useful tool when it comes to checking in on what our favorite NFL cheerleaders are doing. I mean, where do you think that we get most of the material for our Monday Morning NFL Cheerleader Twitpic Roundup? Exactly.
As far as we’re concerned, some of our favorite social media pages are managed and run by NFL Cheerleaders. When done right (a la the Houston Texans and the Dallas Cowboys), you get a great behind-the-scenes look at some incredibly talented and lucky women rooting for their football team. When done incorrectly, you get the occasional photo of a good-looking cheerleader. We can’t think of a better win-win.
So in order to give a tip of the helmet to these amazing women and the marketing geniuses behind them, we thought that we’d do another social media power ranking (see our NHL Ice Girl one here) of our favorite cheerleading squads. We’ve included a roundup of their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter links + follows and have given you a little additional insight as to why we love them so much.
