Boomer being on TV and radio has kept him in our minds and somehow made us think that he was better than he was as a player. Obviously, he wasn’t terrible, as he was a four-time Pro Bowler and won the MVP in 1988. However, outside of that 1988 season, he was fairly average.
He led his team to the playoffs just twice, including a Super Bowl loss in that 1988 season. You also can’t overlook his 3.5% interception percentage, putting him on the same level as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bubby Brister. He gets credit for longevity, but Boomer’s career just doesn’t stand the test of time as one of the all-time greats.
