Boomer Esiason played 14 great years in the NFL. He played for a total of three teams, the Cincinnati Bengals, the New York Jets, and the Arizona Cardinals. In 1988 the four time Pro Bowler won the NFL MVP award. Even after retiring from the game, Esiason is still making an impact on the NFL now as broadcaster.
Yet if you ask Boomer what he is most proud of, he would probably say all the work he does through his organization, The Boomer Esiason Foundation. The foundation looks to support and improve the lives of those who have Cystic Fibrosis. His son, Gunnar was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 1993. Boomer used his popularity to raise awareness for the disease to not only help his son, but other children who have CF.

Rich Gannon, whose career spanned 18 years, had his finest season in 2002 setting NFL and franchise records (completions – 418; 300-yard passing games – 10) in leading the Oakland Raiders to their third straight AFC Western Division title and advancing to Super Bowl XXXVII as the AFC Champions. That same year Gannon was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player becoming only the third Raider in team history to be named the NFL’s MVP (Ken Stabler, 1974 and Marcus Allen, 1985). He also was selected to his fourth straight Pro Bowl since joining the Raiders and was the Pro Bowl’s Most Valuable Player in 2001 and 2002.
Gannon set 21 school records at the University of Delaware where he studied criminal justice. Born on December 20, 1965 in Philadelphia, Pa., Gannon and his wife, Shelley, and two daughters now reside in Excelsior, Minn.
