1. Dan Fouts (underrated)
Dan Fouts must-watch today’s NFL and wish he had been born about 30 years later. In a day and age where the NFL was about brute strength and the power running game, Fouts’ Chargers teams were airing it out. They were outliers.
Fouts ranks 5th in NFL history with 43,040 career passing yards. That’s an incredible total. He ranks 9th all-time in passing yards per game with 237. That number blows his contemporaries out of the water. In fact, no other quarterbacks in his generation averaged over 200 yards per game.
