Donovan McNabb ’06 – sports hernia in the first game of the year and then the TO debacle.

Daunte Culpepper ’02 – struggled to 4-7 record before a season ending knee injury. 

Eddie George ’01 – career year, but key turnover led to playoff loss. 

Barry Sanders 00′ – retired the week before training camp
