26. Randall Cunningham
Cunningham did the opposite to Eli Manning and stuck around the game long enough to become a third-string quarterback. The four-time Pro Bowler was excellent for the Philadelphia Eagles for over 10 years and also had a decent spell with the Minnesota Vikings.
But you can’t be a worldbeater forever, as Cunningham discovered. Meanwhile, a torn ACL in 1991 forced him to reassess his style of play because he could no longer rush to the same effect. Age and injuries catch up with almost every player. That’s the sad truth.
