For most of the choices in the Prime Numbers series on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk, we present a bunch of options and ask you to narrow it down to two or three.
For No. 9, we only want No. 1.
As league history goes, not many great players have donned No. 9. Only two who ever wore it have made it to Canton. Beyond Sonny Jurgensen, the only Hall of Famer who ever wore No. 9 was Steve Owen, who played in the 1920s and coached the Giants from 1930 to 1953.
And so there are three finalists. Choose one from Jurgensen, Steve McNair, and Drew Brees.
The winner will be unveiled on Monday’s edition of the show, which also looks at the best of the best to wear No. 57 and No. 91. It airs at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Not that I need to mention that, since I usually mention it at least once a day.
