Daryle Lamonica

1971 Topps

Daryle Pasaule “Mad Bomber” Lamonica (July 17, 1941-) is undoubtedly one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of professional football and stands in second in winning percentage (78.4%) with a record of 66-26-6 over the course of his 12-year career as a starter. Daryle played the majority of his career in the American Football League with the Buffalo Bills (1963-1966) and the Oakland Raiders (1967-1974) and is often overlooked, most notably by the Pro Football Hall of Fame as he technically only played four seasons in the NFL once the Raiders joined in 1970. He was a four-sport athlete in high school and turned down a baseball contract from the Chicago Cubs to played football at the University of Notre Dame. Daryle quarterbacked the 1962 East team in the East-West Shrine Bowl, which pitted eastern and western all-stars of college football against one another, to a 25-19 victory over the West. He went 20-for-28 for 349 yards and won the game’s Most Valuable Player Award. The Buffalo Bills then took Lamonica in the 24th round of the 1963 AFL Draft.

After backing up Hall of Famer Jack Kemp in Buffalo for the better part of four seasons, Lamonica came to the forefront of elite quarterbacks when he was traded to the Raiders in 1967. He proceeded to lead the league in touchdown passes (30) and touchdown percentage (7.1%) while throwing for 3,228 yards an earning his first of two AFL Most Valuable Player Awards. Two years later, Daryle threw for 3,302 yards and 34 touchdowns on 221 completions in 426 attempts (all league leading numbers) as he won the 1969 AFL MVP award. He was unquestionably one of the most prolific passers in AFL history as he won three AFL Championships – with Buffalo in 1964 and 1965 and Oakland in 1967. Daryle was named to two AFL All-Pro First Teams and was named to five AFL/NFL Pro Bowls. Daryle Lamonica finished his career after playing one season in the World Football League having passed for 19,154 yards and 164 touchdowns on 1,288 completions in 2,601 attempts. He also rushed for 640 yards and 28 touchdowns. Daryle Lamonica was later inducted into the American Football League Hall of Fame.
