    I didn't know there was a NFL before Favre.
    You mean he didn't invent the game, form the league, sponsor all the teams and become the greatest player ever?
    I'll never trust ESPN again.

    I got 22. I missed:

    Todd Philcox, Browns
    Jack Trudeau, Colts
    Ken O'Brien, Jets (should've got that one)
    Rodney Peete, Lions (that one, too)
    Hugh Millen, Patriots
    Rich Gannon, Vikings

    I got six and gave up after 1:30. I knew there was no way I would improve.

    That was fun. I missed seven, so I guess my card collecting days served some purpose:

    Boomer Esiason (I assumed he was gone by then and didn't even try his name)

    Todd Philcox (Impossible)

    Vinny Testaverde (Didn't know how to spell his last name)

    Chris Miller (Brain fart ... I kept typing Billy Joe Tolliver)

    Bobby Hebert (I swear to Tebow I typed his name)

    Kelly Stouffer (Figured Dave Krieg was the Seahawk ... turned out to be the Chief)

    Rich Gannon (Forgot he played for the Vikes)

    Got a very surprising 20 -- I credit many, many days and nights of Tecmo Super Bowl for the assist.

    Missed Harbaugh (the only real d'oh! on my list), Philcox, Chandler, Trudeau, O'Brien, Millen, Marinovich, Stouffer.

    (And yeah, I also figured Krieg was the Seahawk. Go figure.)

    Another tough NFL quiz .., No. 2 overall picks since 1980.


    I got 27 out of 30 (with some spelling help).

    Missed Lam Jones, Johnie Cooks and Bill Fralic (I should be ashamed for blanking on that one). I'm very good at remembering meaningless garbage like the NFL draft.

    Got 22 out of 30. I have absolutely no memory of this Hugh Millen person.

    Nailed 21 of them, and there's not a one of them that I missed that I feel bad about. Even got Philcox!

    Got 18 of 28. Can't believe I missed Testaverde, Hebert and Peete. Also ashamed it took me forever to think of Neil O'Donnell.
