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?

Hmm there is only a handful of WR that have more then 113 TDs, but all of them have been to a probowl.

I am stumped.

Where did you get 113 tds?

I was about to change it to 1975 but I thought that would have made it to easy, didn’t think you’d find another one. Galloway gets you two points but the question is still open!

Because i am an idiot and read it like this person had 70 more TDs the Julio.

Colston has to be the right answer.

Colston is correct! 2 Points.

Hmm, you guys got that one and Galloway pretty quick. I have yet to need hints for any of these. A rundown of the alltime td leaders would do that for you, so let’s make this challenging.

1. Yet another WR!

2. In a 4 year span, he amassed 4800+ yards (averaged 1200+ per year!).

3. Lots of guys have done this, you say? Again, zero career pro bowls. Now how is that possible?

Who is he?

Beat me to it. I thought it was Amani Toomer, but I had to look it up. He had no pro bowls, but had 4700 yards in 4 seasons.

I don't think that is right cause he started games for the Vikings in his 4th season.
