Washington: John Elway
The fact that John Elway was born in Washington state is probably a surprise to many. It’s also a crushing blow to Brian Urlacher, who otherwise would have been an obvious choice for The Evergreen State. Alas, Elway can’t be denied the distinction.
Few quarterbacks played the game Elway did and few had his skillset. Not only did he have a cannon of an arm, but he was also a mobile quarterback before mobile quarterbacks were fashionable. In his 16 seasons, Elway went to nine Pro Bowls, and after coming painfully short on multiple occasions, he was able to end his career with back-to-back Super Bowl wins.
