BRUNELL IS NFL'S NO. 6 ALL-TIME LEADING PASSER

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.
