NFL players return to Celebrity Family Feud

I’ll admit it: I like Family Feud. And not just because Family Feud provides the backdrop for one of the best moments in Family Guy history. I’ve liked the show from the first time the guy from Hogan’s Heroes launched into a career that would prompt people watching Hogan’s Heroes to forever says, “Hey, there’s the guy from Family Feud.”

And so, even though it won’t be on NBC, I’ll give some free publicity to this year’s prime-time Celebrity Family Feud featuring NFL players. In a pair of shows to be televised July 3 on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET, 20 total players will square off.

The first show pits five AFC offensive players (Jets receiver Brandon Marshall, Patriots tackle Marcus Cannon, Raiders receiver Amari Cooper, Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, and Ravens receiver Steve Smith) against five NFC defensive players (Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, former Washington defensive lineman Terrance Knighton, and Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu).

The second show has five AFC defensive players (former Bengals linebacker A.J. Hawk, Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, Chargers running back Melvin Ingram, Broncos linebacker Von Miller, and Raiders linebacker Malcolm Smith) facing five NFC offensive players (49ers tackle Joe Staley, Lions receiver Marvin Jones, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Washington receiver Pierre Garςon, and Cardinals running back David Johnson).

The teams will be eligible to win up to $25,000 for charity. Which really isn’t all that much.

  1. I’ve liked the show from the first time the guy from Hogan’s Heroes launched into a career that would prompt people watching Hogan’s Heroes to forever say “Why does that guy kiss every woman who comes on his show?”

  2. Marcus Cannon recovered from the whiplash of watching defensive players run by him with blood in their eyes ready to drill Brady? Ugh…why couldn’t that have read former Patriot?

  3. How about the NFLPA’s leadership versus the gang that can’t shoot straight from 345 Park Ave? Wait, scratch that. It would probably be the first time the show ended in a scoreless tie. There is no way either side has a clue what one average person would answer when surveyed about…anything.

  4. I always thought it was really really creepy the way Dawson kissed every woman that was on that show on the lips no matter if they were 12 or 75 years old.

  5. “Controversy” for $500: Give the full name of the professional football team that is located in Washington.

    FF isn’t Jeopardy. In the spirit of FF “Survey says: The Seattle Seahawks. Number one answer”

    Everyone knows the REDSKINS aren’t located in Washington.

  7. 25k “really isn’t all that much”. Hey come on down from that tower you blog from and roll around in the dirt with the rest of us.

  8. enough already. Florio is right. considering the coin networks make off the show and what the celebs get paid, 25K to the charity is a joke.

  9. its the nature of americas beast—-shows like “wheel of fortune”, “deal or no deal” and “the price is right” give away a boat load of money for doing basically nothing, while contestants on jeopardy have to answer a bunch of questions to win a lot less(and there is only one winner)——-its the dumbing down of america—they also slip in some casual advertising in the questions and answers all of the time—
