19. Randall Cunningham
The debate about whether or not Randall Cunningham’s Hall of Fame worthy has raged on forever. Perhaps much of his value lies in, not only, his 2,429 completions, his 29,979 career passing yards, his 4,928 rushing yards, or his 242 total touchdowns (207 as a passer and 35 as a runner).
Cunningham’s value also comes in the idea that guys like Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick, Russell Wilson, and Steve McNair might have never had the courage to play quarterback, as African American men, had they not seen Cunningham do it first and be successful in doing so.
20. Donovan McNabb
Statistically, Donovan McNabb is the Eagles’ greatest quarterback of all time. He’s a six-time Pro Bowl selection who’s racked up over 37,276 career passing yards, 3,459 rushing yards, 234 touchdowns through the air, and 29 touchdowns on the ground.
The Lombardi Trophy eluded him for his entire career, and in the minds of many, that’s, no doubt, put a dark cloud over any discussion of him entering Canton, but, love him or hate him, he deserves to be in a serious discussion about his chances every year or there doesn’t need to be a discussion. You can put a period at the end of that sentence.
