Look forward to seeing how many folks can answer these.
Here are answers, but NOT in order.
wow Coach TJ, those are good challenges.....without spending zillions of hours trying to go through PFR and collate for all of them, I'll start and say I'm confident that #11 is really #24 Lenny Moore....ReplyDelete
Tough quiz. Pretty sure #2 is John David Crow, #6 is Bobby Mitchell and #8 is Paul Hornung. The other seven have got me stumped.ReplyDelete
I am stumped too ... Takes a lot of research, to come close ...ReplyDelete
I thought #1 was Baugh #2 Crow #3 Sayers #4 Thorpe #5 Matson #6 Mitchell #7 Norm Van Brocklin #8 Hornung #9 Walker #10 Cuff
Get the feeling Dutch Clark, Ace Parker, Ollie Matson, Steve Van Buren could be in there as well ...
Brian, you are a maniac.....can't believe you could come up with all those names/answers.....wow....congrats!Delete
Did some more digging and I'm pretty sure #1 is Charley Trippi and #9 is Timmy Brown.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jim but Kaimac may be more right ... Timmy Brown or Herschel Walker on #9 and Trippi over Baugh at #1 ...ReplyDelete
I don't think Matson at #5 is right either ...ReplyDelete
Here are three more that I'm pretty sure are correct. #3 Hugh McElhenny, #4 Bill Dudley, and #10 Frank Gifford.ReplyDelete
You're the winner Kaimac, good job ...Delete
Thanks Brian. It's been fun trying to figure these out. #5 and #7 have still got me puzzled, but if I do anymore digging through PFR, I'm going to get a headache.Delete
Yep, I did terrible but love those old throwback uniforms on the cards !!ReplyDelete
I love throwbacks just about anytime and I hope the NFL will continue them...I especially like the 29 Packers, 60 Broncos , 33 Pirates, 55 colts, and the shadow letters (55?) 49ersReplyDelete
