  1. Looks like an indoor football league team, or one of the rejected oregon duck alternates.

    NFL Trivia Game!

    Leaderboard 16 bwestbrook36 12 Mrkingofspades 9 downundermike 4 Skippyx 4 Pallidrone 4 SBorBust 2 Poconodon The rules: 1. Each question will initially be worth 2 points (without hints). First person to get it wins, and their tally will be added to the first post. 2. If not one gets the answer in an amount of guesses I feel is appropriate, I will begin giving hints. Once the first hint is given, the question is then only with 1 point. Hints will be given in sets, and then the question will continue until a new set is required. 3. Each poster may only guess ONCE between hints. So 1 guess after the first post, then 1 guess after the first set of hints, etc. If you guess multiple times in between hints and break rule 3, I will not acknowledge your additional tries. So if you see someone doing that, you can steal their other guesses because they could be correct because I wouldn’t say if they were, as they didn’t count. 4. If you guess someone who fits the criteria but was not my original idea for the answer, you will get the appropriate points and the question will continue until the original answer is found. Example: I want a 90’s rb that made 3 pro bowls. You say Barry sanders, but I was looking for Emmitt Smith. I will acknowledge Barry is also technically correct, give that poster 2 points, then still leave the question open until Emmitt is called and that other poster will also get 2 points. All questions will be intended for 1 answer, but by host error, they could have unlimited right answers. HOWEVER, if hints come about before your guess on the original question that eliminate Barry Sanders, you are no longer entitled to those points. Example: This Rb played in the NFC East. Barry no longer fits, that answer is now off the table. But if the second hint was ‘played in NFC,’ Barry is still in play and he follows rule 2, meaning he’s worth 1 point and the game will continue. Long rule, but understandable? 5. I make the questions, if you want me to use yours, message it to me with the answer, and I will process it through my ‘elaborate criteria.’ Keep in mind I am a fickle human being, but don’t let that stop you from keeping the game alive. 6. I’m putting it in this section because it’ll be about nfl stuff all over, maybe not very much eagles trivia. In fact, because of the player base here, I may avoid that. I do hints because thousands of fans can see this and it’s not meant to be easy. 7. If you dispute a question/answer, please message me and don’t make a stink in the game. 8. If you don’t know, guess the the closest player you can think of even if it’s wrong. What this will do is eliminate options for other people so they can get the answer quicker and we can move on to a question you may know. And if no one is getting it, people guessing will push me to give out hints to make it much easier to get. 9. Oh yeah! I’m going to word these questions as best I can so that you can’t simply google the answer without much effort. Use your brain, work it out. These are all things I know off the top of my head and I’m no historian. You probably know it too, just give it a minute to marinate. If you have to use Pro football reference, etc, I won’t make it easy.... 10. If you are late to a solved question, and you guess for it while a new Question is going, that will count as your guess for the new Question! Make sure to make it to the end of the thread before you guess. 11. In the event I totally blunder the wording of a question to the extent that the correct answer is actually wrong (like I already did on question 1), I will restart the question and refund all guesses. This may mean you did guess the right person initially, and if that does happen you’ve lucked out, I’ll give you the points and we’ll move on. But if it doesn’t, I’ll acknowledge all guesses were incorrect and everyone is allowed to guess again. to the first question! 1. This player is a WR 2. He played football for a team founded before 1960. 3. He is the only player in NFL history to lead the league in receiving touchdowns in his final season. Who does this freaking guy think he is?

    Next question! PoconoDon is excluded as I’m rewording his request: 1. This player averaged fewer than 50 receptions a year for his career. 2. Despite this, he made at least 5 pro bowls, at least 1 all-pro team, and led the nfl in at least one of the following on two different occasions: receiving yards, catches, or receiving tds. 3. He’s played in 3 Super Bowls.

    Next Question! When you play QB long enough, you’ve played everyone multiple times and have beaten just about everybody in the league. However, as you go down the all-time passing yards leaders list, you begin running into QBs who haven’t necessarily done well enough that they win a lot, and still have a few teams to check off their list. Having said that, they put up the stats and are rewarded by making pro bowls... even if they aren’t exactly remembered as all-time winning quarterbacks. I need a QB who fits this criteria: 1. Highest name on the all-time passing yards list for a career, who has... 2. Failed to beat every team during his career (or has failed up to this point if he’s still around)... 3. Not only never won pro bowl MVP, never even had a TEAMMATE who won it. Sometimes, you just get drafted by the wrong team. what a loser.

    Next question: This one is good... I predict I’ll need to do hints. 1. Looking for a QB 2. He has won a playoff game at some point since the Eagles beat the Cowboys in the NFCCG. 3. In fact, he is the last quarterback to start and win a playoff game named... Jason.

    When I first made the game, I wanted people to not look anything up. But I soon realized that was a stupid request because we’re on the internet and of course someone will, so there’s no point in penalizing others who don’t. im intentionally trying to word certain questions so they can’t just be googled for, but every once and a while I’m okay with a pop up like this. But it is expected you immediately start googling as soon as you read the question.

    You’re not going to like this... but since I specifically stated quarterback, and you went OT before you guessed the right answer, you were incorrect and your second guess is not acknowledged, as has been the standing rule throughout. Therefore... First 2 points! Welcome to the leaderboard. And it is the answer I was looking for, question closed.

    Next Question: 1. Dak is the name of a current NFL Quarterback. But that's not his real name. 2. Another NFL QB could technically lay claim to DAK as being his birth acronym. Who is he? 3. He was drafted after George W Bush was inaugurated. Could be multiple answers, each won worth 2 points. But once I get the one I'm looking for, the question immediately closes. You can keep guessing until you get one wrong.

    2 points. Peyton was the last player at his position to retire who played against him. what really gave it away was 37* missed all-pro teams by hall of famers. Within a 7 year span, that’s a MINIMUM of 6 half of fame players at the same position, not including guys who’s careers ended partway through the run like Montana, or guys who made it many of those years like Favre. *I counted Peyton Manning’s rookie year, where in hindsight he’s not technically, but no one will be unanimous first ballot quicker. Thought about editing the question, but I’m pretty confident no one was getting hung up on 37 vs 38 as the reason they couldn’t figure it out.

    Not just ‘with’, Larry Fitzgerald is still around.

    If I got in my car and drove, I could get to this stadium in about... 17 minutes: Doesn’t check all the boxes

    While that’s still technically 6 in 7, there weren’t as many hall of fame dts at that time continually getting snubbed as to compile 38 total.

    Next Question! Let me go back and see if I hadn't asked this one already.... Okay we're good. 1. Though I am an Eagles fan and have never actively rooted for any other team, my favorite football player of all-time never played for Philly. he is the reason I got into watching football. 2. Every single player he played with or against at his position is now retired... or dead. 3. I believe he is the single most underrated player in the history of football. In fact, in a span of 7 years, he made first or second team all-pro... 6 times. Which means he missed out on an all-pro team one single time. 4. This is particularly notable, because hall of fame starting players at his position missed out on either first or second team spots during this stretch... a combined 38 times. 38 times (other than the 1 year) hall of fame players were left off of selection cards because this player existed.

    Next Question! This one is meant to stump: 1. Tom Brady led 11 successful 2 minute drills to close out games from 2014-2017 (4 year span). This was third in the nfl during that timeframe. 2. Someone led the nfl with 20, nearly twice as clutch as Tom Terrific. Who is it? 3. Not the most likely answer, but he does have a reputation for it.

    There’s the other one. Played 8 games against broncos and chargers. 2 points and yes, that video was going to be the hint. My constructing of this question was oddly similar to how the answers played out. At first I thought it was the bears and that’s a weird trivia for how long he was in Minny. But then once I realized he had 1 vs Chicago, I looked up who the real answer was and found 2 teams. I didn’t want to just say there were two teams though because then you could just look at his splits and find which teams he played equal games against and take a lucky guess, ruin the whole question.

    2 points! Question is still open....

    New Question, and this one is a doozy: 1. I need the name of a team. But before you can figure out the team, you must first know the player. 2. This player has never played for the team that is the answer. But they have played for more than 2 teams. 3. This player has caught many tds of over 40 yards. In fact, he's caught 40+ yard tds against 25 of the 32 teams in the NFL. 4. The team in question is the team he's played the most games against without catching a 40 yard td. 5. This player is a WR, and he's in the hall of fame. He's caught td passes from 2 of the top 5 greatest td passers of all time.
