Otto Graham – Cleveland Browns:
The legendary Graham gets lost in the sea of insane passing numbers in recent years, but he’s one of the best in the history of the NFL nonetheless. Graham’s resume reads quite extensively – he’s a three-time NFL champion and a five-time Pro Bowler, and he also made five All-Pro teams. Twice he led the NFL in passing yards, and twice he led it in passer rating.
His 23,584 passing yards for 174 touchdowns and 135 interceptions aren’t the best by today’s standards, but he was also an early dual-threat quarterback with his 44 career rushing touchdowns. Also, looks can be deceiving. Graham still holds the record for yards per pass attempt. If he were able to throw as much as quarterbacks do today, his numbers would be off the charts. More importantly, Cleveland’s winning percentage already was with him starting. A true legend and one of the best to ever play.
