Let’s do some football trivia, shall we?

May 02, 2008 | Drew Forrester

With the NFL Draft now in our rear view mirror, May June and July officially mark “the off season” in football.

But that doesn’t mean that we can’t stay up to speed on the teams, players, etc. in the NFL.

I thought it might be fun on this Friday to do a little trivia contest.

I thought it might be even more fun to center the questions on our neighbors to the south, the Washington Redskins.

Good Luck! 


1. The Redskins haven’t been to the Super Bowl since:

a) Lincoln was President – b) Carole King’s album Tapestry was #1 – c) Paul Newman starred in Cool Hand Luke – d) 1992.

2. The best thing about going to a game at FedEx Field is:

a) Taking 90 minutes to get out of the parking lot because the people that developed the place forgot that fans arrive to the game in vehicles – b) getting to your car after the game and seeing all of the windows are still intact – c) seeing your team beat the Redskins – d) all of the above

3. Redskins Owner Dan Snyder is:

a) a great owner who has not yet received his just due from the media – b) someone we’d all like to work for at some point in our career – c) probably a really cool guy when you get to know him – d) none of the above

4. The Redskins COULD win the Super Bowl in 2008 if:

a) The Patriots drop out of the NFL – b) The Cowboys and Giants both move to the AFC South – c) Temple and Bowling Green both move into the NFC East – d) all of the above

5. In a perfect world, Washington’s 2008 record would be:

a) 12-4 with a first round home playoff loss to the Saints, who score two TD’s in the game’s final 29 seconds to win 27-24. – b) 11-5 with a first round playoff loss at Philadelphia, 30-27, after the Redskins squander a 27-3 halftime lead – c) 10-6 with a first round playoff loss at Arizona, 31-30, with Jason Campbell throwing a red-zone interception with 5 seconds to go in the game – d) 0-16.

OK, let’s see how well you know your Redskins trivia.
