  1. Super Bowl LII Predictions

    off. You didn't think the Eagles were going to win either.
  2. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Or maybe just this ad agency.
  3. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    That just might have been the most entertaining Super Bowl I've ever seen. Pats haters aren't going to like this, but it's a shame one of those teams had to lose.
  4. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Well, that didn't go at all like I expected. Helluva job by the Eagles and a really fun game to watch.
  5. It's Super Bowl Week. Let's play the Super Bowl LII edition of "Who Am I?" For the new folks, here's how it works: Every player has appeared in at least one Super Bowl. The easier the player, the tougher the clues and vice versa. The emphasis is on players who played in the 60's thru the 90's but a player could be from any Super Bowl. Pay close attention to the way the clues are worded and the words used in a clue. Round I I. I finished my playing career with one of the teams that has never played in the Super Bowl. My most recent coaching job was with one of the others. II. The team I was drafted by had yet to play in the Super Bowl when it drafted me. It's made three since. III. I set two all-time records in college - but they weren't NCAA records. IV. I never got a Super Bowl ring as a player, but I did pick up two as a coach. V. I am a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Who am I?

    leopard88 is turning this thing into a blowout. Jack Lambert is correct. I. Steelers Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV II. Lambert lost four of his front teeth after being elbowed in the face in a basketball game. III. I think we'd all agree that he's one of the best LBs ever, right? IV. He was a key player with the Steelers "Steel Curtain" defense.

    Round XX I. I was played in four Super Bowls. II. I looked like an NHL player when I smiled - which was very rarely. III. I am considered by many to be one of the best, toughest, and most feared players ever at my position. IV. I was a key member of a unit that many consider one of the greatest all time. Who am I?
  8. Super Bowl LII Predictions

    New England 26 - Philadelphia 10 has been in my head all day. So I guess that's my prediction. I think it's going to be one of the less exciting Super Bowls we've seen in a while. It's going to be a methodical, somewhat easy, Patriots win.
  9. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    I'll probably do a few more rounds before the Super Bowl tomorrow.

    Merton Hanks it is. I. 49ers (6) and Seahawks (3). II. According to Wikipedia, Shaq liked the "pigeon dance" enough to emulate it in the NBA. III. Again, according to Wikipedia, the dance was inspired by Bert and Ernie. IV. Hanks is currently the Vice President of Operations for the NFL. For my money, the "pigeon dance" is the greatest celebration of all time. It cracks me up every time.
  11. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    Round XIX I. The teams I played for have a combined total of nine Super Bowl appearances. II. Shaquille O'Neal liked my big play celebration so much that he started using it himself. III. My celebration was inspired by Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie. IV. I currently hold this high ranking position with the NFL. I guess you could say I'm second in the line of succession. IV. I made the Pro Bowl four times and was named an All Pro three times. Who am I?
  12. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    You actually do know this one. John Lynch is correct. I. Buccaneers (1) and Broncos (8). II. Lynch played at Stanford while Bill Walsh was the Cardinal head coach. III. His first three years with the Bucs were the last three years of a record setting stretch of ten loss seasons. IV. The Broncos and added Lynch to their Ring of Honor in October of 2016. Tampa Bay added him their Ring of Honor in November of 2016. V. Was anyone not surprised that the 49ers hired Lynch to be their GM?
  13. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    Round XVIII I. The teams I played for have a combined total of nine Super Bowl appearances. II. In college, I played for this Super Bowl winning coach. III. We would go on to win a Super Bowl, but my first three years with this team were the last of an historic stretch of losing. And no, it's not the Browns. IV. These teams added me to their rings of honor within a month of each other. IV. Pretty much everyone was surprised when I was offered my current job. Who am I?

    leopard88 finds the endzone again with James Lofton. I missed the Raiders on the combined Super Bowl appearances so the actual total is 20. I. Packers (5), Raiders (5), Bills (4), Eagles (3), and Rams (3). II. Lofton scored a TD in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. The only other player to do that was Drew Hill. III. In 1991, he was the oldest WR to reach 1,000 yards in a season. He was also the oldest player to have 200 yards receiving in a game. He has a couple other "oldest to.." marks as well. You can see the rest on his Wikipedia page. IV. Lofton won the NCAA Championship in the long jump in 1978. V. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003.
  15. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    Round XVII I. The teams I played for have a combined total of 15 Super Bowl appearances. II. I am one of just two players to have done this in three different decades - the 70's, 80's, and 90's. III. At the time, I was the oldest player to reach this statistical milestone in a season. In fact, I managed to grab a few "oldest to.." marks towards the end of my career. IV. In college, I won the NCAA championship...in this track and field event. I was no Carl Lewis, but I wasn't bad. V. I am a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Who am I?

    Slapshot is on the board with Priest Holmes. I. Ravens (2) and Chiefs (2). II. "Priest" Holmes. III. Holmes once held the record for most TDs scored in a season (27). That record now belongs to LaDainian Tomlinson (31). IV. He and Tomlinson are the only two players in NFL history to score two or more TDs in a game 10 times in the same season. V. Holmes and Emmit Smith are the only players in NFL history to score 20 or more rushing TDs in back to back seasons.

    Kaz is in the game with Manny Fernandez. I. Dolphins II. A lot of people felt that Fernandez deserved to win the Super Bowl VII MVP over actual winner, Jake Scott. His Miami teammate Nick Buoniconti said that in Super Bowl VII Fernandez "played the most dominant game by a defensive lineman in the history of the game." III. According to Wikipedia, the late, great Dick Schaap was responsible for choosing the Super Bowl MVP. The story goes that Schapp was out late the night beofre, was bored by the game, and because he wasn't paying attention, pretty much missed Fernandez's dominant performance. IV. Before the Bears "46" defense, there was the Dolphins "53" defense. V. As most of us know, each season, members of the undefeated '72 Dolphins break out the champagne after the last undefeated team loses a game in the NFL. Thanks to the Patriots, it took all the way to Super Bowl XLII for the Dolphins to pop the cork for the 2007 season.

    Round VXI I. The team I played for has appeared in 5 Super Bowls. II. Many thought I should have won the MVP in one of my Super Bowls. One of my teammates said I basically played a perfect game. III. This late Sports Reporter was responsible for choosing the MVP in that Super Bowl. IV. I was a key member of this numerically named defense. V. Super Bowl XLII was the latest in the season that my old teammates and I did this yearly ritual. Who am I?

    Not even a little close. Not to mention, how are the names Neil or Rackers a perfect fit for Notre Dame?
  20. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    OK, I'm going to pick up the pace. Let's start throwing out a few at a time and see how it goes.

    Or maybe you're just bad at Super Bowl history. Seriously though, I do try to mix it up a little, but as the title of the thread says it's "Super Bowl trivia for the old school crowd." I tend to focus on Super Bowls from the 60's thru the 90's, but I do throw in a few from the 2000's. In fact, the player in round XV is a 2000's era player.
  22. infrared41's Who Am I? Super Bowl LII Edition

    Round XV I. The teams I played for have a combined total of four Super Bowl appearances. II. With a first name like mine, I would have been a perfect fit at Notre Dame. III. For a time, I held the NFL's single season record in this statistical category. It's currently held by this former division rival and Hall of Famer. IV. The player from the previous clue and I are tied for the record for doing this the most times in a single season. IV. Myself and this 3 time SB Champ and Hall of Famer are the only players in NFL history to do this in back to back seasons. Who am I?
