Would be interested to hear thoughts...my candidates include:
Please help add to the list, including what makes them so underrated.
For example, Hostetler:
1. Better QB than Simms since 1989, yet never got a chance to play until Simms got hurt (again) in the 1990 season; all he did was win whenever Simms got hurt (1988 against Saints, 1989 vs. Vikings, 1990 won last 5 games to win the Super Bowl)
2. Beat prime Joe Montana in his own house to reach the Superbowl
3. Won SB XXV over Buffalo, and outplayed Jim Kelly in doing so
4. Better career passer rating than Simms
5. Made Pro Bowl as a Raider, and beat Elway in the last NFL playoff game to be held in Los Angeles
Despite all of this, Simms is lauded as a great QB and Hostetler only as a game manager...real fans should know better.
Please feel free to chime in or disagree. Thanks!
