Attention guys. Still can't get your gal to watch sports?

NFL spokesmodel/supermodel Marisa Miller has a few tips on how you can. And they're kinda easy!

"Guys need to cook their girl her favorite meal to have during the game," Miller told FOX411's Pop Tarts before a dinner in honor of record executive Antonio "L.A" Reid at the Audi Forum in Dallas this Super Bowl weekend. "And then they need to massage her feet while the game is on!"

(Hear that Rex Ryan?)

Luckily for Miller's husband/manager Griffin Guess, the Northern California native doesn't need to be coaxed into loving sports, particularly football.

"I love football, I grew up going to tons of 49ers games with my dad, then through my work with 'Sports Illustrated' my partnership with NFL just evolved," she said. "But it is great being able to be a female advocate of the sport, women definitely need an advocate because there are so many female fans and in my house the women scream at the television louder than the guys."

However, when Miller was first named NFL spokesmodel for the 2010-2011 season, it garnered some controversy from critics who thought the NFL was sending a mixed message by hiring a stunning blonde to promote the sport, and the timing unfortunately coincided with the Brett Favre "sexting" scandal.

Nonetheless, Miller appears to be impervious to any criticism, and said overall she has more female supporters than males.

"It means a lot to me when I get a compliment from a woman," Miller said. "I'm on the cover of 'Shape' magazine for the eighth time right now and I just hope that I always inspire women to lead healthy lives, because there is that side of the business that I'm in that isn't so positive."  

Speaking of covers, the 32-year-old's career got a big boost when she scored the coveted cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2008. With this year's unveiling just a week away, who would she like see follow in her footsteps?

"It all depends who shot it and where, but I really love Brooklyn (Decker) so I'm happy she got the cover last year," Miller added. "I also love Daniela Sarahyba. She is so gorgeous and athletic so I would love to see her get the cover this year."
