Sadly, Hernandez probably isn't the only NFL player to be "involved in 4 homicides."

Why the team hint for the Hollywood walk of fame question? There are several clues that are just as obscure that don't have hints, seems weird to only have one for that question. I say remove it!

Dangit...Jason Pierre Paul has 1.4 hands. 2/5 too many.

Earl Morall was the starting QB for the Dolphins most of that season. So it could be him as well. Griese, of course, was the QB in the Super Bowl.

Glenn Morris won a gold medal in the Olympic decathlon in 1936, setting world and Olympic records. Morris played four games with the Detroit Lions in 1940.

The clue could be changed to the pentathlon since Thorpe won a gold medal in that too.

I'm not 100% sure about the modern pentathlon gold medalists (although none are American so it seems extremely unlikely that any played in the NFL), but the athletics pentathlon only had two different gold medalists in its three years. The other one never played in the NFL.

Tricky on the bobsled one - I thought Willie Gault would count, but I see why he didn't.

Your answer for 300 plus consecutive games started is NOT Favre. He only started 299 straight regular season games and 297 when you include playoffs. Never broke 300. Jeff Feagles is the only NFL player to start over 300 games, 352 to be exact. You need to modify this clue to fit your answer or change the answer

Favre started 321 consecutive games: 297 regular season + 24 playoff. And a start's a start; no reason playoff games shouldn't count.

It could be argued that Tom Dempsey only had one hand.

Dempsey had a right hand, but no fingers on it.

I was adamant that Dempsey was correct until I looked it up. Damn it.
