Quarterback Jim Everett was sacked many times during the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. All those hits took a toll on Everett and changed the way he played. There was a play later in the game where Everett hit the ground before the other team even reached him and was then on known for shying away from hits. Talk show host Jim Rome made fun of Everett for this and even called him “Chris” Everett, a reference to a female tennis player. When Everett appeared on his show in 1994, he lost it. He overturned the table between him and Rom and shoved Rome to the floor, all on live television.
