Heath Miller Has The Best-Selling Jersey Among Women In North Dakota, And Other Odd Facts

It's not definitive, but DICK's Sporting Goods' "Jersey Report" is an excellent indicator of how well NFL jerseys have sold over the past year or so. The best part is this map they put together of the best-selling female jersey in each state. It's called "Ladies Love Football," which is true, even if they don't love the NFL in particular.
Check it out:
Most of this map makes sense: Gronk and Brady rule in New England; West Virginians hate Pitt but love the Steelers; Jason Witten is a lot easier to like than Tony Romo, even in Texas, etc. But there are a couple of geographical oddities, including:
-Steeler Nation is everywhere, but what's with the women of North Dakota and Heath Miller? Is he a stud among the oil drilling crowd? He's tops in Arkansas too. Dude is from Virginia and plays in Pennsylvania.
-Illinois belongs to Brandon Marshall, but Iowa is Cutler country?
-Vermont goes to Drew Brees. Huh?
-What's Brady doing all the way out in Wyoming? And how about Eli in Oklahoma? He went to school in Mississippi.
Notably absent from a spot on the map: Ray Rice.
The entire "Jersey Report" is highly customizable and awesome. But we tried to compare sales of Geno Smith's jersey to Brandon Weeden's and got this:
That chart would have sucked anyway.
