Best LA Chargers to never make the Pro Bowl: 4. Stan Humphries

When you just look at the baseline numbers that Stan Humphries put together on the Chargers in the 1990s then he might not seem deserving of this list. He certainly was not one of the best quarterbacks in the league during his tenure and it is not hard to see why he did not make a Pro Bowl.

Humphries never surpassed 3,400 passing yards in a single season and his career-high for touchdowns in a season is 18. He also threw a lot of interceptions, as he finished his Chargers career with 85 touchdowns and 73 interceptions.

However, he still is the only quarterback in franchise history to lead the team to the Super Bowl. And while a big part of the Chargers making it there was the defense, Humphries still had to be competent enough to be a game manager.

Because of his historical value to the Chargers, he makes the list. Heck, if you look at his win-loss record it is clear that he had more success than most Charger players in their career.

Humphries had a 47-29-0 (.645) record with the Chargers as a starting quarterback. That is a better winning percentage than Philip Rivers (.549) and Dan Fouts (.506).

Granted, the sample size is smaller, but he still won a lot of games for the Chargers in the 90s and deserves to make it on this list as the third-best quarterback in franchise history.
