I think you mean the 1985 Bears, not 1984.

Shouldn't it also be 1998 Broncos?

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.

I like this quiz better than the actual NFL.

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 end up with college basketball.

Might need updating:

The Georgia Dome is no more.

Another corporate stadium. I'll change the question next time I edit the quiz.

You mean to tell me OJ Simpson's first name is not Orange? Fix it.

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.

Was thinking Dontari Poe -_-

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.
