First, you are free to start your own trivia thread.

Second, Marino 84

I have no further comments in this thread, outside of responding to answers to the questions I posed.

The answer is not Dan Marino.

Next ??

I'm thinking about it, I'm just taking a REALLY LONG TIME.

Most teams are looking for the prototypical defender. Someone who can really excel in those 3 big game changing plays: Interceptions, of course, change of possession. Sack, absolutely, kill a play/hurt the next attempt at a first down/ultimately take them out of field goal position.... points off the board. Fumble recoveries are nice, but somewhat random. It's the guy who keeps forcing the fumbles that really gets all the credit.

1. 1 clue this time. I'm going to spit out a career statline. Only one man ever has achieved this, the ultimate gamechanger.

35 INT / 25 Sack / 35 FF

Only 1 man ever. And possibly never again. And... go.

Next question, slightly complicated to word:

1. If we go by the 35-25-35 statline as the base, what player comes closest? Example: 50 career ints, 10 career forced fumbles, 10 career sacks. He's 25 fumbles short and 15 sacks short, so he's 40 total off the mark in joining the 35-25-35 club.

2. I'm not going to give you how many the player in question is off by, that would make it simple once you've found him. So you're going to have to come up with a name and decide whether or not you want to burn your guess on him.

So is the player in question off by about 40? Or is it a player that comes as close as Dawkins? In total numbers?

It’s a player that comes as close to Dawkins as far as his deficient stats. The ones that don’t hit 35-25-35. So an example, 85-38-29 is 6 off, because he’s only 6 away in his deficient stat in joining the 35-25-35 club.

 

Polamalu, for instance, is 37 off, 32-12-14. Someone is closer.

New Question! 

1. This player has made it into the top 25 of NFL.com's top 100 players list at some point since its inception in 2011.

2. Despite this impressive feat, he has never made a single pro bowl his entire career.

3. I know what you're thinking, "1 year wonder, it happens." Au Contraire, Mon Frere! It was not his only career inclusion in the annual top 100 list. Still, no pro bowls to show for it.

 

Sounds pretty much impossible, as there are a good 100ish players in the pro bowl. But it happened.

Who would do such a thing?
