Did you know not only was he a Grey Cup winning coach with The Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the CFL he was also on the 1948 Minneapolis Lakers NBA championship team
I loved Bud Grant. He worked more or less a 40-hour week, and wasn't the kind of control freak most present-day NFL coaches are.

Well the way it was written, I still feel I deserve to have my score reduced to zero for the question.

I do have a dog in the fight and it will hurt my infinitesimal chances of winning, but I also agree.

I dropped this question. But I read it as if the bonus player could be any position. I mainly dropped it because I couldn't think of anyone for the bonus.

I came across this exact piece of obscure trivia literally the day before I entered this TD. I've never been more sure that I was going to get a singleton. How did three other people know this?

I once took some classes at a branch campus of Miami University, went to Ohio State while Roethlisberger was at Miami, and took Ohio history in school growing up, so I knew a lot more about the presidents that came from our state than most boardies.

Did you count the Stanford/Hoover/Elway and Stanford/Hoover/Plunketts separately? Because they are two distinct answers.

Thanks for a really fun TD and congratulations to Category13!

macrae1234, I believe I answered this bonus correctly (Texans); so I might move up a few spaces in the final scheme of things. Certainly not a podium for me though.

Thanks and Thanks.
An NFL T.D. with lots of Super Bowl trivia? It doesn't get much more wheelhouse than that for me.
I knew all the answers for Q10 except for Roethlisberger/Harrison, but it wasn't worth the risk of a sheep to give an answer.

I have to contest that neither the Colts or Browns have relocated their franchise twice since 1970 though.
The present day Browns were just reincarnated as a new franchise to appease the loyal Cleveland fans.
