NFL Quarterbacks That Have Been Sacked the Most
But who’s been sacked the most?
Well, the all-time leader in most of the important QB statistical categories, Brett Favre, is at the top of the list again. Add this ignominious record to his, say, all-time leading interception record.
Here are the top 25 quarterbacks that have been sacked the most.
What’s interesting about this list is the type of quarterback that is represented. Two types mostly. You’re either a sluggishly immobile QB (Favre, Elway, Krieg, Bledsoe, Testaverde) or a running QB (Cunningham, McNabb, Young). In both cases, these guys held onto the ball just a little too long.
Additionally, note which long-time quarterbacks are NOT on this list: Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, Kurt Warner. These QB’s are somewhere in between – agile in the pocket, but not aggressive runners. And they’re all guilty of having a quick release which sure doesn’t hurt.
