Steve Young Number 24 of Last 25

To commemorate USA TODAY's 25th anniversary, a panel of USA TODAY's NFL reporters and editors has produced an anthology of the 25 best NFL players of the past 25 years. Working down from No. 25, they are unveiling one player each weekday until training camp season arrives:

• No. 24 Steve Young
He entered the NFL fresh out of the USFL and quickly became a backup to one of the greatest players in league history, Joe Montana. But by the time he left, Steve Young had carved his own niche on a level equal with his 49ers predecessor as one of the most accurate and successful passers in NFL history. And for that, Young earns a spot at No. 24 on USA TODAY's list.
Young holds the record as the highest-rated passer in league history, and he retired with the highest single-season passer rating with the 112.8 mark he garnered in 1994. With his sixth passing title achieved in 1997, Young joined Sammy Baugh as the only men to win six passing crowns.

It was in 1994 that Young reached the pinnacle of his career. Named NFL MVP for the second time, Young led the 49ers to a 13-3 regular-season mark and past two-time defending Super Bowl champion Dallas in the NFC title game. He capped off his dream season with a Super Bowl MVP-winning performance in a 49-26 rout of San Diego in Super Bowl XXIX.

I've never been a niner fan, but I was a closet Steve Young fan. That dude could to anything... [clearing throat] thanks to Mike Holmgren!

That 1994 season was sick. That was right about when the Seahawks fans everywhere were burying themselves in mass graves, but damn. The niners were going Desert Storm on everyone. Good memories for you, bitches!
