What's the only thing better than a quarterback competition with two awful quarterbacks?
It's a quarterback competition with three awful quarterbacks!
Well, Hoying was supposed to be good, but he wasn't.
That's what the Philadelphia Eagles had in 1997 with Bobby Hoying, Ty Detmer and Rodney Peete.
Detmer started the season, Peete played sparingly and Hoying took over as the season ended.The Eagles finished the year 6-9-1.
More controversy followed in 1998. Hoying started the season looking absolutely horrible. After throwing zero touchdowns and nine interceptions he was benched.
Both Koy Detmer and Rodney Peete played the rest of the season out as starters. The Eagles finished 3-13.
Hoying only threw seven more pass attempts in his career, all for the Oakland Raiders.
Next year, the Eagles had a new quarterback. The fans may have booed him when he was drafted, but Donovan McNabb didn't turn out too bad.
