It's not really called a "man" defense when receivers are covered individually. "One-on-one" or "man to man" are more appropriate terms, although it's not really accurate to call either the opposite of the zone. In my mind, at least, the opposite of the zone defense is "a winning football strategy".

It's referred to as "man" coverage in pretty much every football game I've ever seen.

Hall of Famer Jim Kelly would be a much better use for the K. Kaepernick is a crappy QB. Watt is a top player, but maybe Reggie White or Bill Walsh or Rod Woodson for W.

Actually, I thought the range of questions was really well done. As for Kaepernick, running qbs with 16 tds and 4 picks - yeah, those are a dime a dozen.

Got Tony Gonzalez only after trying Antonio Gates, and then Rob Gronkowski. Didn't realize so many top all-time Tight Ends' last names started with "G". It's a shame Gonzalez never got to play in a Super Bowl.

Gonzalez was just so good for so long. I think he might be second all-time among all receivers in pass catches (behind Jerry Rice). Gates and Gronk are both great, but they'll need to stay great for a long time to catch Gonzalez. I bet Jason Witten is way up there too.

I believe Gates has more tds than Gonzalez. Both great long term tight ends

I wish more people knew about Jim Thorpe who was coached by "Pop" Warner. Check out the movie, "Jim Thorpe - All American." I'm glad they gave his Olympic medals back even if it was 30 years after his death.

I never tried (and failed) to spell Lambeau as much as I did for this quiz. Lembo, Lambo, Lembeau
