Thread: Hall of Fame backfield

  1. #1

    Hall of Fame backfield

    I can find 3 times in NFL history that a team had a QB, HB and FB that would all make the Hall of Fame. If you name all 3 without looking them up, you are the king of all trivia and a parade will be thrown in your honor. Bonus points if you find one that I didn't.

    Clarifications:
    3 different times means 3 separate sets of players, not the same 3 players 3 years in a row.
    For the purposes of this post, a 'parade' may be defined as me walking around my kitchen in my underwear.

    Alex Smith, Kevan Barlow and Maurice Hicks.

    I'll skip the parade.

    Johnny Unitas, Joe Perry, and Lenny Moore is the only one I know of off the top of my head. I'll take a third of a parade and be happy with it.

    I didn't have that one, now we're up to 4.

    Yes! I get bonus points! I assume I can redeem those at any Cracker Barrel in the country?

    Free biscuits and cornbread with the purchase of any entree. Just mention my name.

  7. Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, and Paul Hornung (I checked only for spelling)

    Y.A Tittle, Joe Perry and one other player, whos names I forget, on the 49ers in the late 50's

    edit: actually the 49er group was together for most of the 50's I will leave the third guy a mystery.

    First one is correct. Partial credit on the 2nd. The 3rd group (actually 4th with Kaba's addition) is really hard.

    Does it involve Bronko Nagurski?

    Not that I could find. I searched on Nagurski and Red Grange, but I don't think they played with a HOF QB.
