Brad Johnson – QB

Brad Johnson was never a put-the-team-on-his-shoulders type of quarterback on any team that he played for during his 15-year career. But he was good enough to be classified as a winner.

A caveat to Johnson’s inclusion on this list is that he was elected to the Pro Bowl in 1999 with the Washington Football Team and in 2002 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, Johnson never received the honors in Minnesota.

While in Tampa Bay, Johnson, along with head coach Jon Gruden and a bloodthirsty defense, won a Super Bowl. The Buccanneers knocked off Rich Gannon and the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII. The year was 2002 and Johnson had the best season of his life tallying a 22 touchdown to six interception split on the season.

With the Vikings, he never played pinball with box scores. But he did guide the team to a 28-18 record during his seven seasons with the team.
