Ready to test your NFL fandom? I won't make it easy.
Every uber-fan knows their own team pretty well, generally absorbing a pretty good amount of team history over the years. I'm pretty sure I could pick my favorite team out of a blind lineup in a heartbeat. But how well do you know some of the other teams out there? For all of you football fanatics, here's your time to shine. . . In a random internet quiz.
So it goes like this: I'll list 5 NFL teams, withholding many details, dropping a few breadcrumbs here and there, and you've got to figure out who they are. The answer will be on the next page over for each team. Simple enough, right? Feel free to brag or cry about how many you got right or wrong in the comment box at the bottom of the page. Or you can rage at me, or tell me how great of an article this was, whatever you like. It's a free country. (At least I hope you live in one). Also, don't Google it before you turn the page. That defeats the whole point. Darn kids get off my lawn grumble, grumble.

Daaaaa Bears. If you guessed Pittsburgh Steelers, there certainly were many similarities. They've also had incredible long-tenured coaches, recently were in the playoffs and lost the Super Bowl the year before (2011, 2010). They are a venerable franchise like the Bears, and their QB Roethlisberger, like Cutler, has had a less than stellar public image. They are also both extremely successful franchises known for their defense.
But, Bears icon Mike Ditka had his #89 jersey retired, and was a successful head coach, leading them to their only Super Bowl win. The Steelers somehow only have retired one jersey ever; #70 Ernie Stautner. Also, the Bears started in Decatur, Illinois before moving to Chicago in 1922. The Steelers had changed names (Pirates) but never cities. The coach who coached the Bears for 40 years was the late great George Halas. As far as recent playoff history, the Bears lost in the 2010 conference playoffs, and the last appearance was a Super Bowl loss in 2006. The Bears logo was originally an actual bear before changing to the wishbone C we know so well. And yes, the Bears are the winningest franchise in the NFL, but have only won 1 Super Bowl. Figure that one out.
I hope you enjoyed this quiz-tastic sojourn, feel free to let me know if it was too easy or too hard in the comments. I don't know about the rest of you, but this stuff helps satiate my addiction as I wait impatiently for the 2014 season. Come on, Doc, where are you with that Delorian?
