I thoguth this was a cool topic so I revived it with a couple "Did you know"s

-- Did you know a routing football collision is the same as running into a wall at full speed?

-- Did you know that the longest field goal of 63 yards, was from an NFL kicker who was missing his right hand, and had no toes on his kicking foot? (Tom Dempsy) [[ Jason Elam has also tied that record of 63 yds but i think he has all 10 toes ]]

-- Did you know that the average football player takes a hit to the head twice a game at 120x the force of gravity?

-- Did you know that Drew Bledsoe holds the record for most passing attempts in a single game with 70? Did you know that he didn't throw one interception that game? He also holds the most in a season with 691.

-- Did you know that Payton Manning holds the record for most passing attempts from a rookie in his first season with 575?

-- Did you know that Erik Dickerson had 390 rushing attempts in his innagural season?

Keep this going guys. this is interesting. hopfully we can get some more football stuff

1 in 4 people do not graduate from college...

Did you know...

your wingspan is equal to your height? generally...

your footsize is the same length from your elbow to your wrist?

one of your fists is the size of your stomach?

both your fists clinched together is the size of your brain?

if you take a your pants buttoned up at the waist and wrap it around your neck, that is the size of your waist. Essentially your neck is half the size of your waist. So when you go to measure pants at the store just wrap it around your neck to size it to your waist.

I DARE YOU TO TRY THIS RIGHT NOW!!!! No joke, im serious!

the animal that kills the most humans every year isn't Lions, Tigers, Crocs or Buffalo but...Hippo's?

Actually for some reason I knew this, don't ask why!

Did you know that the Colts have the best record in the NFC North this year (lol) 4-0!!

Also, Even though Manning will break records, and win a few more games, he will still get thumped by the PATS!!!!!!
Keep winning that MVP and collecting trophies Peyton, and NE will keep collecting SB rings, sounds good to me!!
