Instagram isn’t just a fad. NFL players have taken to the social media tool, posting photos of their off-the-field exploits and hobbies during their downtime. So we here at FOXSports.com present our Instagram Power Rankings, where we count down the top 10 images from the previous week. Let’s get to work. — Sid Saraf
Minus the Bear
We're starting this week's rankings by making a bit of an exception. This image isn't technically an Instagram -- it was posted on Twitter by a Seattle indie band called Minus the Bear. Somehow, I find this image appropriate. The Seahawks did indeed drop a white gift on the 49ers on Sunday.
The Ravens had a tough win on Sunday over the Browns and their offensive lineman is feeling the effects. "Currently getting a massage by my massage therapist Deenie, was very sore after this game." Speaking of which, I've put in a request for Deenie to come visit us hardworking schlubs at FOX on Sundays, but I have a feeling Mr. Murdoch won't approve. Sigh.
The Titans running back had a tough loss in Houston last week. So, what did he do to help get over his sadness? Well, by donning his Darth Vader outfit and and letting good thoughts roll in. "Tuff lose man but we still working to get better gotta learn how to finish but until then tryin get my legs back after that one can't wait to get Tennessee another W" That's right, Chris. Get those legs in order and get after it in Week 3.
The 49ers rookie wide receiver had an interesting eye black formation on his face on Sunday night. As you can see, he wears No. 11. So, in tribute to that, he set up his eye black to form "11." Which of course, confirms my suspicions that eye black serves no real purpose. But hey, at least it looks cool.
I don't know where the former Texans defensive end found this receipt, but that is epic. "Can you really leave a tip like this if so I gotta go redo a couple receipts for a few of those lazy waiters/waitress" I just found a perfect way to get revenge on the next snotty waiter/waitress who tells me I can't order a martini with whiskey instead of vodka.
The league caught this sweet image from Sunday's game. "PP21 vs. Megatron. #DETvsAZ" What you're seeing is the reflection of Calvin Johnson in Patrick Peterson's face mask. Wow, that's some tight coverage right there. If he gets any closer, someone's going to have to buy breakfast.
Kevin Durant, a Washington D.C. native, is still a huge Redskins fan. "It's still #HTTR, no matter what!! Love my team and our fans" Congrats, dude. And for god sakes, please knock off LeBron this year. Let's end this Miami Heat farce once and for all.
Oh, good lord! "2012 AFC South Champions banner unveiled by TORO at yesterday's home opener. #WeAreTexans" If there's one thing I can't stand, it's heights. And spiders. OK, two things ... and snakes. Three things ...
The Jets QB is doing his best to get his injured shoulder healed. This includes sticking needles in his skin. Whatever works, right? "Acupuncture #rehab #ouch #chesthair #manscape #teenwolf" Yeah, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. That's some ... dark chest hair. The light isn't doing you any favors here either. Yeesh, that's disturbing.
It was quite a weekend for the "Ice Ice Baby" star. "Getting ready for the halftime show @houstontexans" Then he gets to pose for a picture with a gaggle of Texans cheerleaders. I'm not jealous (I hate you). No, really! I'm not jealous (hate you!)! In fact, to prove I'm not jealous (still hate you) I'm handing you, Mr. Ice, the win for this week. Congratulations (hate rising)!! See you next week!
