89.  Dave Krieg
Although we imagine that Dave Krieg dreamed of throwing footballs in the NFL, it had to seem a million miles away when he was the backup Quarter back at the now defunct Milton College.  Amazingly, he not only made the professional ranks, he was there for seventeen years.

For the bulk of his career, Dave Krieg was the starting Quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks.  He annually posted good numbers at the position and was a big part of what success Seattle did have.  Three times, he was named to the Pro Bowl, and he is in the top fifteen all time in many throwing categories.  A lot of his all time rankings are attributed to being good for such a long period of time, however at no point in Krieg’s career was he ever a dominant QB.  Basically, for a ten year span, Dave Krieg was basically the tenth best in the league.  Sure, he was thought of as good, but without that “great” label, it is hard to put him in the Hall despite his impressive career numbers.

So, Krieg was supposed to kneel on the ball because an opposing player got hurt?

Dave Krieg showed disrespect in 1992 by getting a TD after # 90 DE Dennis Byrd got hurt. He belong in the hall of scumbags.
