I just looked up the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1980's.....every 1st Teamer on both offense and defense is in the Hall of Fame.

 Very good!

BTW, where is that grave?


Lakeview cemetery in Cleveland. All kind of Indians memorabilia is left at the headstone. President Garfield's memorial is in the cemetery. Rockefeller and many other famous people throughout Cleveland history are buried there.

Oh shit, I got all wrapped up in the game and forgot about trivia.....


- The number 45 was retired by the Browns in honor of what running back who never played a game for them?

- Orlando Brown is one of only two players to suit up for both the pre-Ravens Browns and the 1999 expansion version of the team.  What cornerback is the other?

Did Turner not play for both or was him being a safety not count?

I think that Turner finished up in Oakland after he was with the Ravens.

Here are today’s two questions:

- Who led the Browns in receiving yards in their 2002 run to the playoffs?

- What kicker broke the Browns rookie scoring record in 1987, was injured warming up in a pre-season game in 1988, and spent his remaining 11 seasons kicking for Oakland and Chicago?

Best guess is Quincy Morgan. I was at the game he went for like a 95 yard TD vs Cincy.

Edit: My memory is fading. It was Andre’ Davis and it was 99 yards and it was in 2004 lol. I did have the opponent right!
