June 12, 2007) -- Every year in June, I give a series of final exams so you can test your knowledge of the previous season. The test is designed to remind you of a few of the performers who played better or worse than you might remember. The second test will feature team performances. Take the test in five minutes and of course no cheating!

TRUE/FALSE ... that means you have a 50/50 chance, which always helps the guessers.

5.) Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for more touchdowns than Edgerrin James and Thomas Jones combined.

6.) Steven Jackson was fourth in the NFL in rushing yards behind LaDainian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson and Frank Gore.

7.) 23 NFL running backs rushed for over 1,000 yards last year, and that group included Willis McGahee and Shaun Alexander.

8.) Larry Fitzgerald caught more passes than any of these receivers: Anquan Boldin, Isaac Bruce or Tony Gonzalez.

13/15

I missed Walt Harris and the Tiki Barber 4th in rushing. Must have been that last big game that made the difference. Man that was a way to go out.
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!
