Not every idea works out. In this episode, we highlight a few from pro football's history that failed. We tell the stories of a new uniform numbering system, the biggest waiver steal of all time, and a choose-your-own-adventure football game where the home viewers called the plays.

YACHT - Holly Roller

El Chicano - Viva Tirado

The Freak Fandango Orchestra - The Hug

The Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Telephone and Rubber Band
