TD 320 “Tight on the Spiral” for the NFL themed TD

Post by macrae1234 » Tue Nov 08, 2016 2:25 pm

Basic Rules

*Use ONLY your brain. Not your mom's, not your dad's, not Google's and not your phone's or anyone else's brain!

*Try to get the answer that matches the LEAST number of other people.

*You get 1 DROP, for which you will receive a score of ZERO.

*You get 1 SHEEP, for which you will receive the same score as the most popular answer.

*You can submit via Private Message

*You do NOT have to be a boardie to play. The more the merrier!

The theme is the NFL

Answers are due by (11:59 P.M., November 20, PST) only because I will be out of town until then

1 The Heisman Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the United States whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work. It is presented by the Heisman Trophy Trust in early December. There have been nine members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who have won the Heisman Trophy. Name one.

2 The NFL draft is the building block of a championship team. Six QB’s drafted first overall have led their team to a Super Bowl championship. Name one.
Bonus In addition 2 more first overall draft choices have been on the roster of a Super Bowl championship team. To bring your score for this question to zero name one.

3 Winning a Super Bowl is the pinnacle of a coach’s career. Twelve head coaches have won multiple Super Bowls. Name one.
Bonus In addition three head coaches have won both a Super Bowl and a NCAA football championship. To bring your score for this question to zero name one.

4 The heartbreak of losing as a coach has been felt in the Super Bowl 51 times. Seven coaches have lost multiple Super Bowls. Name one.

5 Since the 1970 merger six teams have relocated their franchise 2 twice. Name one
Bonus Two of the original AFC franchises started in 1961 and moved prior to the merger. To bring your score for this question to zero name one

6 List one of the QB’s in the top 10 career passing yards three are still active

7 List one of the rushers in the top 10 career rushing yards only one is active

8 List one of the receivers in the top 11 receptions. * I used 11 because 11 is close. Three are still active and one retired last week

9 There are several lists of the worst number one overall draft pick since the 1970 merger I will be very liberal here if I can find your answer on any top 10 list it will count.

10 Four universities have produced a US president and a Super Bowl winning QB. Name the school, the president and the QB.

Good Luck and have fun

So for #10, there are only four possible answers, and you need to name all three? Gonna get a lot of drops on that one. Or did you mean name the school, the QB, OR the President?

At any time or in their rookie season?

What team name are you looking for? Original? Current?

It appears there were more than just two possible answers for the Bonus on Q2.
I had John Matuszak, who was on at least two Super Bowl winning teams.

Did you know they still got awarded decent rings for the Confrence Championship? These are what Bud Grant has in his jewelry chest.
