Steve Young – Tampa Bay Buccaneers/San Francisco 49ers:
Young is often left in the shadow of fellow 49ers all-time legend Joe Montana. That’s a big shadow to stay behind, but the fact is that Young was one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks in his own right. He won a Super Bowl as the starting quarterback and the MVP award along with it. When he was finally able to step up when Montana left the Bay Area, Young showed his true skills.
He was named to the Pro Bowl seven times. He racked up three First-team All-Pro selections and three Second-team All-Pros. Young won two NFL MVP awards in 1992 and 1994. He led the NFL in passing TDs four times, passer rating six times, and completion percentage five times. Topping it off, he ran for 4,239 yards and 43 scores on the ground, proving he was one of the most well-rounded passers to ever play in the NFL.
