I think you mean the 1985 Bears, not 1984.

It could be either. They won back-to-back.

I would go with the first one, that was the one that got the gigantic monkey off their back. '98 was just a victory lap to show everyone how good they really were, but they'd already exorcised all those playoff demons.

Only one I missed was Goodell. It never occured to me that his name had two "o"'s. I kept trying Godell and Goddell, etc to no avail.

The Colts and Rams one no longer applies as the rams are currently in Los Angeles and the colts are not in Baltimore

Technically, Payton wasn't responsible for Bountygate, DC Gregg Williams was. A better analogy would be to find a coordinator or assistant that helped with Spygate or maybe Deflategate.

I also typed Williams first, but head coaches are supposed to have institutional control and Payton fits the analogy format.

If you habitually let them head coaches off the hook for assistants' indiscretions by claiming ignorance...you end up with college basketball.

You should add Vonnie is to Von as Rayne is to Dak

If you're going to be editing the quiz anyway to take out the Georgia Dome, you should probably take out Ragnar as well. He and the Vikings parted ways a couple years ago over a contract dispute.

Kinda dated....Knowshon, Plaxico, Maurice Jones-Drew, Victor Cruz are all on this page and didn't turn out to be hall of famers like Joe Namath and John Elway.

1985/1997 question threw me for a loop but figured it out. Also got stuck on the Wentz question (only one I missed), since I was only thinking about current and not in terms of who started in their place in the SB due to injury.

19/20 because I didn’t know (and don’t plan on retaining) Russell Wilson’s Wife’s name.

I know it was his position... But Polamalu's answer is truly C-Gap ;)

Or maybe it's "wherever the ball is".

More quizzers know that Ciara is Russell Wilson's wife than that Don Shula was Dan Marino's coach? I'm not sure whether that depresses me just because or because it reminds me of how old I am. (Or could it be they don't know Tom Landry was Roger Staubach's coach? Either way.)

I love how if you didn't know JJ's number and you tried going in order until you got it it would be literally the last number you get to lol

Shouldn't Halas also be an answer to the Packers/Lambeau? Founder of the NFL, played, coached and ran the team from inception, both members of the the original Hall Of Fame Class?

I think it's referring to the field, not the coach
