Earlier today, I ran a post in which Leo Strawn gave us a series of questions about old timey NFL unis and helmets, and now we’ve got the answer key. I’m going to run the questions and photos again, in case you didn’t see the original (and to make it easier to see the questions posted just before the answers). In some cases, Leo has added a little extra besides just giving the answers. Hope you enjoyed this feature!
Old-timey Pro Football Unis and Helmets…in Living Color
by Leo Strawn
Years ago, I did some UW content on occasion. I’m Leo…welcome to my world!
This edition will focus on old-timey pro football uniforms and helmets…all from the 1920s, 30s & 40s, and all in living color!!
Some of these are difficult, like coming up with a play to call on a 4th and 17 late in the 4th quarter down by 6, but there are some that are easier, like a first and goal from inside the 1 yard line against the worst defense in the league, so just give it your best and have fun with it, okay?
Extra point: Who is the player in that photo and what team did he suit up for in the NFL?
How did you do on the old-timey NFL quiz? Did the officials have to ask you to go for two (twice!!) in the fourth quarter because you ran the score up so high that they were running out of footballs or did you fumble on the 3-yard line late in the game with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line?
Until next time…
And now, for a Field Goal: three bonus questions of my own (two color photos and one b&w).
7. Which two teams are pictured here, and in what year was this game played?
See you tomorrow!
