Graham is one of three players in the Top 20 who played in the
who were active during the 2000 season outnumbered members of the
Pro Football Hall of Fame among the Top 20 career leaders in four
main statistical categories. Each week during the NFL season, the
Hall of Fame updates the Top Twenty career leaders in passing,
receiving, rushing and scoring. The Top Twenty rankings, an
immensely popular display at the museum in Canton, are also updated
weekly on the Hall of Fames web site.
The 2000 NFL regular season marked the fifth straight year that the
weekly updates were posted each Monday and Tuesday on the Internet.
Hall of Fames Top Twenty rankings differ slightly from other
similar lists in that statistics from the All-America Football
Conference (1946-1949) are included. However, there are only three
players who played in the AAFC who currently hold a Top Twenty
ranking in any of the four main categories - Otto Graham of the
Cleveland Browns (passing), Joe
"The Jet" Perry (rushing) and
Lou "The Toe" Groza (scoring).
