Vinny Testaverde led the NFL in interceptions four times. I don’t think he’ll be getting a Hall of Fame bust any time soon.
The Buffalo Bills were such a powerhouse. Thurman Thomas was a rookie running back in 1988 and started an eight-year streak of 1000 rushing yards in 1989.
Webster Slaughter was a Pro Bowler for both the Cleveland Browns and conference rival Houston Oilers.
I remember a little hype about Tim Harris, but not much. The 1986 fourth-rounder made the Pro Bowl in 1989.
Warren Moon played 17 seasons in the NFL. That, in and of itself, is impressive. But add another six years playing in Canada before that and…whoa. Dude might have been the greatest all-time and we just didn’t know it.
I don’t care what his stats look like. Randall Cunningham should be in the Hall of Fame.
Lawrence Taylor has such an impressive resume: Defensive Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Valuable Player, ten-time Pro Bowler, eight-time All-Pro, two-time Super Bowl Champ, Hall of Famer. Despite all the accolades, he also has a devastating downside. Multiple drug suspensions and arrests. Such talent, but how much greater could he have been?
I have never been a fan of Joe Montana, but you cannot deny his greatness. I mean, I guess you could, but you’d be wrong.
