How Many Hall of Fame QBs Have Led The League In Interceptions?

Eric Mangini, in a discussion on this morning’s First Take about whether Eli Manning would be a Hall of Famer if his career ended today, mentioned that Eli led the league in interceptions in 2010 and asked, “How many Hall of Famers have led the league in interceptions?” (Neither Mangini nor Skip Bayless thought that Eli had done enough yet to deserve Hall of Fame induction.)

Naturally, I stopped what I was doing and went to databaseFootball.com to answer Mangini’s question.

Here are all the Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks since the merger to have led the league in interceptions thrown:

Broadway Joe, one of many Hall of Fame quarterbacks to have led the league in interceptions.

  • Terry Bradshaw, 1970 (24)
  • Joe Namath, 1974 (22)
  • Joe Namath, 1975 (28)
  • Fran Tarkenton, 1978 (32)
  • Warren Moon, 1986 (26)
  • Dan Marino, 1989 (22)
  • Warren Moon, 1991 (21)
  • Jim Kelly, 1992 (19)
  • Brett Favre*, 1993 (24)
  • Peyton Manning*, 1998 (28)
  • Brett Favre*, 2005 (29)
  • Brett Favre*, 2008 (22)

* Brett Favre and Peyton Manning are not in the Hall of Fame, but I included them because it is safe to assume that both will be elected as soon as they are eligible. Probable future Hall-of-Famer Ben Roethlisberger threw a league-leading 23 interceptions in 2006. Also, Jay Cutler led the league with 26 interceptions in 2009, and he dominates.
