84-Mark Brunell (Green Bay 1993-1994; Jacksonville 1995-2003; Washington 2004-Present)
The three time Pro Bowler found sucess with an expansion team, and was able to lead them to the playoffs three times. While in Jacksonville he made a name for himself as a scrambling QB and in one season passed for over 4,000 yards on route to the AFC Championship game in '96. Both he and the Jaguars werent so fortunate during the beginning of the 21st century, and in 2004 he became a Washington Redskin. Struggling at first, and being benched in favor of Patrick Ramsey in '04, he would have a renaissance in 2005. In that year he had 23 touchdown passes and would lead the Skins to the Divisional playoff match. In '06 things went sour again and Brunell was benched in favor of Jason Campbell.
83-Jeff Hostetler (New York Giants 1985-1992; Oakland 1993-1996; Washington 1997-1998)
Hostetler is kinda like a richman's Frank Reich. Like Reich he tookover for an injured QB and led them through the playoffs, but unlike Reich Hostetler became a sucessful starter. After leading the '90 Giants to a Super Bowl victory, he would beat out Phil Simms for the starting job in '91. But his fist year as a starter was fairly unsucessful as the G-Men went 14-18 with him as the starter in '91 and '92. He would find sucess in Oakland as he was able to make the Pro Bowl in '94.
82-Jim Harbaugh (Chicago 1987-1993; Indianapolis 1994-1997; Baltimore 1998; San Diego 1999-2000; Carolina 2001)
Was a first round pick by Chicago and found reasonable sucess in '91 when he passed for 3,000 yards, but most of his sucess was in Indianapolis where he would become a Pro Bowler. In '95 he had a 100.7 passer rating and would make the Pro Bowl, along with being the Comeback Player of the Year, a top candidate for MVP and leading the Colts to the AFC Championship game. The '95 AFC Championship game ended in dramatic fashion as Harbaugh's Hail Mary was incomplete. He would also go on to have good sucess in San Diego and would retire in Carolina.
Could Anderson break the top 10? I've seen him on other top 10's. Honestly I don't have an opinion on him considering I've never seen him play a game, all I know is the older Bengal fans really like him.
