Page 2's NFL Preseason Hall of Fame

Love that we got two guys on this list.

Steve Spurrier

Position: Ol' Ballcoach

Team: Washington Redskins

Preseason bio: Heading into the 2002 American Bowl in Osaka, Japan, the newly minted Redskins coach summarized his complex offensive game plan like this: "We're going to pitch it around." Washington did just that, throwing 45 passes and five touchdowns in a 38-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers that resembled Spurrier's fun 'n' gun era at the University of Florida -- in part because former Gator Danny Wuerffel quarterbacked the Redskins' unstoppable aerial onslaught, a revolutionary system that put the NFL's stodgy, hidebound, no-fun offensive coordinators on immediate notice.

Non-preseason bio: Finished 12-20 with Redskins, including a 20-10 loss to that same 49ers team in the 2002 regular season; resigned two seasons into a five-year, $25 million contract; habit of calling pass plays more than 55 percent of the time -- despite surrendering umpteen sacks and having a Pro Bowl runner in Stephen Davis -- left Washington's players wondering aloud to reporters, "What the hell are we doing on offense?" Osaka. That's what!
Colt Brennan
Position: Quarterback

Team: Washington Redskins

Preseason bio: Dismissed as an undersized product of the system coming out of a pass-happy University of Hawaii offense, Brennan -- whose Hollywood QB-sounding name alone merits Preseason HOF consideration, along with Brock Berlin -- led all NFL rookies in 2008 preseason touchdown passes, yards and quarterback rating, three statistical categories that are, in fact, tracked. Tossing a last-minute, game-winning touchdown pass against the New York Jets -- on his 25th birthday, no less -- made Brennan a cult hero among Redskins fans, and even hip surgery that forced him to miss the entire 2009 season did little to cool the ardor.

Non-preseason bio: Has yet to take a regular-season snap, not even to take a clock-killing knee. Forebodingly gave up his No. 5 number for new Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, then was cut during 2010 training camp. Currently in camp with the Oakland Raiders.
