Known by the name “The Drive”. He has that driving force in him that every time he lagged in the game, came back even stronger the next season. Firstly he played for Colts but his career didn’t flourished there, so they traded him to Broncos where they went to the 3 super bowls but didn’t touch the victory line. But latter in the next consecutive years he helped them beat Packers and Falcons at the super bowl.

10. Brett Favre
Brett was kind a guy who has very long list accomplishments but is not considered to be that great to be on any list. He wasn’t that great to be honest, but he had his moments which earned him many records and a position on the list.
