Trivia of the Day – Sunday, December 16th

Manning finds the last empty spot on his trophy case.

What do you give to the man who already has everything? How about a Comeback Player of the Year Award?

Right now, the choice for AP Comeback Player of the Year is a two-horse race between Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson. If Manning wins the award, it will put him in pretty rare territory: he’d be just the fourth player to, over the course of a career, be named by the Associated Press as the Most Valuable Player of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, and Super Bowl MVP. Can you name the first three?

Below is one hint for each of the three players who have won all three awards.

    Dang, can’t believe I didn’t get #3.

    There were only 3 players to win the Heisman and Super Bowl MVP. I stopped at Jim Plunkett, and thought he might have had a comeback award.

    Jim Plunkett
    Marcus Allen
    Desmond Howard

    Well, I went zero for three on this one. I pay no attention at all to Super Bowl MVP, but I still should have gotten at least the first one.

    Well I knew Brady. For some reason I could have swore Namath would have had all 3, no idea why

    Well, it’s official: Peyton Manning won the AP Comeback Player of the Year award.

    I can’t beleive I got Montana right away, but couldn’t think of Brady even with the hint….
