QB Jim Kelly, Buffalo Bills:
A legitimately deserving Hall of Fame quarterback, Kelly was the tried and true leader of the unreal Bills squads in the 90s that lost a remarkable four straight Super Bowls. Drafted in the historic quarterback class of 1983, Kelly first played for the Houston Gamblers in the USFL before finally making his way to the Bills, who kept his rights.
He was extremely doubtful about playing in the extremely cold winters of Upstate New York, as he played college football at the warm, tropical Miami. But Kelly eventually rewarded the Bills’ patience with 2,874 completions for 35,467 yards, and 237 touchdowns as he played every year of his 11-year career with the Bills. More importantly was his four-year streak of Super Bowl appearances. He and his teams lost some vicious Super Bowl games those years, and Kelly earned every ounce of his 2002 Hall of Fame induction.
