8. Fran Tarkenton
Fran Tarkenton was the “original dual-threat” quarterback who terrified teams with his combination of throwing and scrambling ability. After his 18 year play career was over, Tarkenton owned basically every major quarterback record that existed, including career records in pass attempts, completions, yardage, and touchdowns; rushing yards by a quarterback; and wins by a starting quarterback. Tarkenton was named to nine Pro Bowls and two All-Pro Teams, and was given the MVP award in 1975. The only thing that eluded Tarkenton in his successful career was a Super Bowl win. He led the Vikings to three Super Bowls in the 1970’s, but could never manage to pick up a win in the big game.
