Mat McBriar Quiz

The Cowboys are reportedly hopeful that Mat McBriar will not only recover from knee surgery, but also that he will remain with the team.

He has played 102 games with the Cowboys between 2004 and 2011, which ranks third among punters in team history behind Danny White (145 games as a punter) and Mike Saxon (124 games). McBriar’s career average of 45.3 yards per kick is the highest in franchise history.

Below is a quiz with five questions about McBriar.

    The answer to the first question is wrong. The answer is Minnesota. I checked it via Pro-Football-Reference.

    I actually remember that pass. He was the holder for FGs and either there was a bad snap or he fumbled the snap. He tried to throw the ball, and I’m not sure if it moved forward! It looked like Garo Yepremian’s pass in Super Bowl VII.

    I also remember Daunte Culpepper destroying Dallas’ defense. That was Culpepper’s best season, and that was a bad Dallas defense that year.

    I’m sorry about that– Minnesota is indeed the correct answer, not Washington. I thought I edited the quiz to provide the correct answer last night, but the corrected version isn’t showing up.

    McBriar was actually called for intentional grounding on that play. It was inside the Minnesota 6, but the Vikings got the ball at the 28. They scored three plays later on a 63-yard touchdown pass from Daunte Culpepper to Onterrio Smith.

    I wasn’t able to edit the original, so I just created a new quiz with the same questions. You should see the correct answer now.

    It’s all good. Any plans for another historical series? I really enjoyed theĀ  greatest players by jersey # a couple of years ago.

    Thanks for reading those series. I am planning to update the jersey-number posts with players from 2008 to 2011. There have been quite a number of changes since I originally wrote those. I have a few other ideas that I am working through now. I plan to be considerably more active during this offseason than I was last year, when I grew tired of the lockout and posted only on rare occasions.
