Jaguars QB Mark Brunell is ranked as the sixth leading passer of all
time, according to a list of the NFL's career passing leaders
recently released by the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To qualify for
the lifetime lists, a passer must have attempted 1,500 passes, and
Brunell passed that mark during the 1998 season.
Brunell's 86.3 passer rating ranks behind Steve Young, Joe
Montana, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Otto Graham, and ahead of
passing greats such as Roger Staubach, Sonny Jurgensen, Len
Dawson and Johnny Unitas.
In six pro seasons, Brunell has completed 1,038 of 1,719 passes for
12,512 yards, 72 touchdowns and only 43 interceptions. He is the
first Jaguars player to be listed in one of the four main categories
(passing, rushing, receiving and scoring) in the popular Top Twenty
display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
