1998 Hall of Fame Candidates:
QB Stan Humphries
Stan was drafted w/ pick 2.3 by the KC Chiefs in the 1987 draft. He was a 50PS 50PC rookie & right away saw success throwing 30 TDs his rookie year (11 interceptions) & hit his gain up to 56PC. He was traded to the Raiders following his best season, 1991 where he won the Super Bowl for the Chiefs & had an amazing 135.4 rating that was from his 30 TDs & just 4 ints.
As a Raider he hit another gain after his 2nd season there going up to 63PC & had another stellar season throwing 22Tds w/ only 2 ints for 2,502 yards & a rating of 129.
He aged after the 1994 season & had a disappointing season completing just 39% of his passes w/ a rating of 101. This was his final season & walked away from the game as a 3x Pro Bowler, 1x All Pro & 1991 Super Bowl Champion QB after 8 seasons. If he was able to stick around for 10+ seasons he would've climbed the All Time leader board after ea season.
He is 7th place for QB Rating & his TDs has him 19th place along w/ yards passing at 15th place.
QB Vinny Testaverde
Vinny T played his first 2 season w/ the Miami Dolphins after being drafted 3rd overall in the 1986 draft
After his first 2 sub par seasons the 63PS 44PC QB was traded to the NY Giants & went on a tear w/ QB ratings between 125 & 152 each of his 7 seasons in NY.
He had 183 career TD passes w/ a ridiculously low interception total of 39.
He won the 1995 MVP Award after completing 70% of his passes for 2,099 yards w/ 28TDs & 3ints. His rating that season was 144.3.
Add in his 4 Pro Bowls & 3 All Pro seasons
Currently on the All Time Leaders for QBs he is around 20th for the major categories but when look at his 137 career rating that is where he is the most dominant. His rating is better than every QB to ever play in the WTF w/ more than 125 pass attempts.
His career was cut short after 9 seasons / as well as his first 2 were sub 100 rating in Miami so realistically he had 7 seasons in NY that were pure dominance.
RB Emmitt Smith
Emmitt was drafted w/ pick 1.1 by the NY Giants after a draft day trade w/ the PHI for the pick.
Emmitt hit his 56MS line for rookie season & was at 63MS after his 3rd season - he stayed at 63MS until his retirement after only 6 seasons.
He was the rookie of the year for 1990 as well as a 6x Pro Bowler & 5x All Pro.
Emmitt had an insane 11.4 yards per carry average - and 11,329 yards for career that was cut short after just 6 seasons.
He excelled catching the ball as well w/ 259 receptions for 3,961 yards & 37 TDs receiving.
He only played 6 seasons so is not in the top 10 for yards, TDs, etc. but his 11.4 yards per carry is the best ever for players w/ more than 120 carries.
LB Duane Bickett
Drafted w/ pick 3rd in the of the 1984 draft he played his entire 11 year career w/ the Washington Redskins
Started out as a 50RP rookie & gained after his 1st & 7th seasons to be 38RS 56RP 63MS 56HP 31INT.
Career 95 sacks (9th All Time) & 365 tackles (15th All time) w/ 5 interceptions.
He was a 6x Pro Bowler & 2x All Pro.
His 1990 - 1993 seasons he had a combined 48 sacks (9, 16, 16, 10) to show the league he was an upper echelon LB.
DB Vann McElroy
Vann played 14 seasons & all w/ the Houston Oilers!
He started his career at 31RS 38RP & 63INT after being the 4th pick in the draft.
He hit gains his 1st, 2nd, & 4th seasons bring him up to 56RP 75INT very quick & was one of the rare players to age then gain again after to bring him back up.
Highlights include 10x Pro Bowler - 6x All Pro - 1989 Super Bowl Championship
Career stats: 107 interceptions w/ 1int TD & 5 sacks.
He is 4th place on the all time INT leader list as well as only the 4th player to break the 100 INT mark.
