Number Association Game

Recommended Posts

Ok.  Before the Season starts, full-throw I gotta grandiose little idea for a "game" we could play.

 

Name a number - 1 through 99 - and the Player you FIRST associate with it.  YOU CAN BE SELECTIVE, THOUGH!  If, on first association you think of a player you don't like (for whatever reason), you can think the next player, and speak it, instead...  We only want players you associate in a GOOD way!  [NOTE:  Doesn't have to be "the best" player you think of for a given number, though.]

 

By the end, we'll tally all the numbers, and define - by observing who had the most repeat associations among us - the Goodest *Player*... by jersey-number;  and, overall.

 

Here, I'll start randomly and begin with the # 75.  You all chime in with your 75 (can be the same as mine/ anyone else's), and then throw out some #'s/ players you think of.

 

 

For me, when I think of 75, I immediately think:  Joe Greene

23, Can I get a Witness?

 

Perry Williams

 

 

I surprised myself with 23;  As, pondering it, the first guy I thought of was DAT Giant?...  No, not William Perry.

 

 

 

Here're some more that jumped to mind, recently.

 

78:  BRUCE

50:  Singletary

1:    Moon

22:  Erik McMillan

2:    Doug Flutie

On 2nd thought, that might've amused me for a minute, but I have to go with Flutie, honestly.

 

 

Already know the 60s are gonna be tough!!

 

Only one I can think of, so far:  67, Art Still

 

 

88:  Al Toon

7:    Elway

13:  Marino

80:  Rice

Going through this was interesting as it made me realize I don't pay much attention to player numbers. 

 

The first player I thought of was 50 - Singletary.  He might be the one player I associate most with a number in NFL history.

Then I went 1-99 and these are the other players that popped into my head first and within a short time period.

The fact that I didn't think of Favre or Vinatieri for #4 further proves that I don't pay enough attention to jersey numbers.  Either that or the fact that #4, in my mind, will forever be associated with the legendary Bobby Orr.

#84..... I wish it wasn't so, but this number, despite all the great players who have worn it, always makes me think of Joey Galloway....... such a mixed bag for the Seahawks: big plays followed by big drops.... tough catches in traffic, followed by alligator arms attempts..... his primadonna holdout in 1999, when Hawks started 8-2, then faded bigtime after he returned (lost to Marino in playoffs, Joey did squat)..... but then got us TWO 1st round picks after 1999?!?! gracias, cowboys...... I remember thinking I forgive him for everything after that haul....... was always ambivalent about this guy, never a big fan, never a big hater, but appreciated his talent and it looked like he gave his all.... most of the time.

This was an odd one ...

If I think "Ronnie Lott," I think of "49;"

But if I think "42," I think of Ronnie Lott

      Also, for future reference, if you don't specify who's going to win by game time, it counts as a loss against you.  If you honestly cannot bring yourself to guess right away, you have until the games start to come up with a winner.  Or you can be the gutsy one and call a tie.
       
      Anyways, I'll make my picks later.  I need to think about my choices before I settle on anything concrete.

      Time for Week 2, everybody!  Here are this week's games:
       
      Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals
      Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons
      Los Angeles Chargers @ Buffalo Bills
      Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
      Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans
      Cleveland Browns @ New Orleans Saints
      Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets
      Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers
      Philadelphia Eagles @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
      Indianapolis Colts @ Washington Redskins
      Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams
      Detroit Lions @ San Francisco 49ers
      Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos
      New England Patriots @ Jacksonville Jaguars
      New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
      Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears
       
      Make your picks!  Here's mine!
       
      Ravens, Panthers, Chargers, Packers, Texans, Saints, Jets, Chiefs, Eagles, Redskins, Rams, 49ers, Broncos, Patriots, Giants, and Bears.
       
      Survival pick for this week would have to be the Saints or 49ers.  A lot of tossup games this week as well.  Though the biggest question mark is the Packers.  If Aaron Rodgers is ruled out for the week, I'm gonna change my pick to the Vikings.
       
      Edit:  I changed one of my picks.  Instead of thinking the Falcons will win, I am now leaning more towards Carolina.  Hopefully, I don't regret that pick.  And since Aaron Rodgers is back out on the practice field, I am still leaning more towards Green Bay.  But if he ends up getting ruled out tomorrow, I'm gonna change my pick to Minnesota.  Everything else will be left as is.
