Wait! what? for one.. change your avatar.. I thought MJP28 stole your laptop;).. Can I challenge your call? Bud Grant played for the Eagles.. & that damn Ulysses was a President    

There have been several players with the last name Grant that have played in the NFL.   So, you can challenge all you want:   Your challenge is DENIED!!

And yes,  I have kidnapped...sort of...mjps avatar, and will release it when he pays the ransom.

The ones in Bold are right....though the only new one not already mentioned is Taft.

Only one name left.

The finer Details? I pay close attention to only one.. 

Lets try the street in Toledo where the Hookers hung out?   JEFFERSON ?

All Done.    

There has NEVER  been someone play in the National Football League  that had the exact same last name as   Seven (7)   of our Presidents. 

Give those  7 names.  

Answers and explanations:

Fillmore

Taft

(nothing really close for Taft and Fillmore)

Coolidge   (closest:   Cooley)

Eisenhower........but there was an Eisenhauer

Obama:    but there has been an Obada, and an Obomanu

Trump......but there was Bob Trumpy

Truman    Trumpy would have been the closest similar name here as well. 

Notes:

Interesting that  Trump/Truman begin with the same 4 letters but are not the same name.   Those are the only Potus names to do that...except: 

You do have the  4 sets of related Presidents with the same last name:  Adams, Bush, Harrison, Roosevelts.   

 Johnson then is the only name that is the same with 2 unrelated Presidents. 

Aside from Trump/Truman the only other Potus names that start with the same 3 letters are Harding with the Harrison boys. 

(no other name comes close to being the same as Biden)

By the way no NFL player by the name Biden has ever played in the league.

Hmm, I think you are right.  I must have missed that one.  Do not see any  NFL cats named  Garfield.  ;) So make that 8 names. 

The thing is,   the names  Taft and Garfield are so ubiquitous around Ohio,  we forget that really these are very rare names.

I could be wrong, just don't remember that name.

No, I checked.  There was never a Garfield in the NFL.  I missed it. 

Like I said, Garfield is not a common name.   Only other Garfield I have heard of was actor John Garfield.   And I don't think I have ever heard of anyone else named Taft that was not associated with the William Howard Taft family..   Have any of you?
