First, last week’s trivia answer — late in the second quarter in a 1971 game against the San Francisco 49ers, the Washington Redskins run a reverse play that loses three yards — and the winning question:
- Peter Roff: “What was the play Richard Nixon called in to George Allen that lost the Redskins yardage?”
By the way, Lee Annis notes: “Peter Roff is absolutely correct and deserves a prize, but diehards will recall Roy Jefferson lost 13 yards.” But rkclement says: “What US President provided a play for George Allen’s Redskins that wound up losing three yards?”
- Other fun questions:
RCGeist: “What was the play suggested by Richard M Nixon to Redskins head coach George Allen that taught Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula that RMN is not a good offensive coordinator when the President suggested the “Fins use a slant pass to Paul Warfield in Super Bowl VI? Shula could lose it all on his own — Cowboys 24 – Dolphins 3.”
- Phil Chroniger: “What example about why you shouldn’t take advice from a president, who faces intense media scrutiny because of a struggling war, did George Allen provide for his kids?”
Now, this week’s Extreme Trivia answer — Warm Springs, Georgia. What’s the question?
