Brian Hoyer joins elite company with poor playoff performance
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
At least Brian Hoyer was in good company when he delivered one of the worst complete-game postseason performances for a quarterback in NFL history. Check the gallery above to see how his game against Kansas City Saturday compared to some other really bad ones, including four by players who took teams to the Super Bowl. Not pictured is L.A. Rams quarterback Jim Everett. His performance in the 1989 NFC Championship game resulted in a 30-3 loss to San Francisco. He completed 16 of 36 passes and threw for 141 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions. Everett completed the game with a 20.7 quarterback rating.

NFL Week 9 Football Picks
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The NFL Week 9 Picks will put us over the hump on the 2013 football season. So, we have eight more regular season Sundays to win our office pool. One thing I have learned is that the Seattle Seahawks have an alarmingly bad habit of winning, but not covering the spread. I want to be a Russell Wilson fan; I really do. The Seattle QB is a fellow Virginian and short person, not to mention amazingly talented and generally cool. But he's killing me! Week 8 chart-topper: Calvin Johnson's 329-yard receiving game was nothing short of historically great TV. That it was short of Willie Lee "Flipper" Anderson's 1989 336-yard record makes one wonder how incredibly good Anderson must have been to amass that many yards when DB's were actually allowed to defend a pass. Not to mention the fact that it was Jim Everett and not Matthew Stafford under center for the 1989 Rams. No offense meant to Mr. Everett but, you know... Week 8 trivia: Quick, what's the name of the Packers' punter? It's Tim Masthay. ...

A New State of Mind?
ABQ Journal - almost 5 years
Prep football coaches differ whether title games should be held at UNM What the Pit has been to the high school state basketball tournaments — a dreamy locale for big-dreaming teenagers — University Stadium may someday become to New Mexico’s state championship football games. Yes, it’s purely a hypothetical — as it’s always been — but the notion of a predetermined, centralized site for the state’s high school title games is perhaps closer than it’s ever been before. “What I’d like to see,” said Randy Adrian, the New Mexico Activities Association’s point man for prep football, “is the state championships made into an event like the state basketball tournament. It’s a really big deal in the state.” To be perfectly clear, a potential NMAA/UNM marriage is not imminent. The NMAA said no formal talks have begun. But UNM’s plans to replace natural grass with a synthetic turf — either this year or next — is likely to ignite talks to bring championship games to University Stadium on a ...

    FORTIES
  • 2012
    Age 49
    In a 2012 interview with Deadspin, Everett stated that "a large burger franchise" wanted to use the footage in an ad.
    More Details Hide Details Everett agreed, but Rome did not, blocking the deal. After his NFL career ended, Everett settled in southern California. He received an MBA degree from Pepperdine University and started his own asset management business.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1994
    Age 31
    His struggle eventually led to a confrontation in 1994 with then-Talk2 host Jim Rome.
    More Details Hide Details Rome had regularly mocked Everett's aversion to taking hits on the field by addressing him as "Chris" Everett (a reference to female tennis player Chris Evert). When Everett appeared as a guest on Talk2, Rome wasted no time, applying the insult twice within the show's first 30 seconds. Everett warned Rome not to do so again, implying that physical confrontation would ensue otherwise. When Rome did, Everett overturned the table between them and shoved Rome to the floor while still on the air.
  • 1993
    Age 30
    The 1993 season was a low point in Everett's career.
    More Details Hide Details He played in only ten games but managed to throw twelve interceptions. He only threw eight touchdown passes, tying the lowest yearly total of his career and matching his rookie total when he only played in six games. The next season in New Orleans he turned his performance around. In three years with the Saints, he threw 22, 26, and 12 touchdowns. Over his career, Everett managed to perform well enough to be among league leaders in several passing categories. His 203 touchdown passes rank 25th all-time, and his 34,837 passing yards are good enough for 14th all-time. He also ranks 15th all-time in completions and 16th all-time in pass attempts. On a year-to-year basis, he was among the top ten league leaders in the following categories: pass attempts (seven times), completions (eight times), pass yards (seven times), and passing touchdowns (six, including leading the league twice).

  • 1989
    Age 26
    Following the 1989 regular season, Everett was reportedly "shellshocked" from the numerous times he was sacked and hit in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers (the 49ers won, 30–3).
    More Details Hide Details At one point in the game, Everett was so rattled that he collapsed to the ground in the pocket in anticipation of a sack, even though the 49ers' defensive players actually had not yet reached him – a play now known as Everett's "Phantom Sack".
  • 1986
    Age 23
    Everett had a productive NFL career, especially with the Rams, where he was a statistical leader in several passing categories. His Rams teams were successful early in his career, earning playoff berths in 1986, 1988, and 1989, despite never reaching the Super Bowl.
    More Details Hide Details
    Everett attended Purdue University and was selected in the first round of the 1986 NFL Draft.
    More Details Hide Details He was selected as the third pick in the first round by the Houston Oilers, and was the first quarterback taken that year. Unable to work out a contract agreement with Everett, the Oilers traded his rights to the Los Angeles Rams, with whom Everett played from 1986 to 1993. He then played with the New Orleans Saints from 1994 to 1996 and ended his career with a stint with the San Diego Chargers in 1997.
  • 1985
    Age 22
    He finished sixth in balloting for the 1985 Heisman Trophy.
    More Details Hide Details Everett earned regular membership on the Distinguished Students list at Purdue, and graduated with a degree in industrial management. During his time at Purdue, Everett regularly tutored fellow Purdue athletes in courses such as calculus and statistical analysis. He was also initiated into the Sigma Chi fraternity during his time as an undergraduate. During his senior year he was awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor in recognition of his athletic and academic achievements.
    During the 1985 season, Everett led the NCAA in total offense (3,589 yards), which at the time was a school record (since broken by Drew Brees).
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1984
    Age 21
    As a junior, Everett led the Boilermakers to the 1984 Peach Bowl, where he passed for 253 yards and three touchdowns.
    More Details Hide Details Purdue lost the game to Virginia, quarterbacked by future Green Bay Packer Don Majkowski, 27–24. Everett is also the only Purdue quarterback to ever beat Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State all in the same season.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1980
    Age 17
    Purdue University recruited Everett out of Eldorado High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which he led, in the 1980 season, to the school's only state championship.
    More Details Hide Details In addition to quarterbacking the team, he also played defense as a safety. Recruited to play either safety or quarterback, he was soon slotted into the quarterback role where he narrowly missed out on being a four-year starter at Purdue, as a game day decision before his first game as a freshman led to Scott Campbell getting the nod over Everett. Campbell held off Everett for three years, one of which Everett was able to redshirt to gain an extra year of eligibility. Upon Campbell's graduation to a seven-year career in the NFL, Everett took over the reins of the pass-oriented Boilermaker offense.
