Jeff Hostetler Biography
Jeff Hostetler was born April 22, 1961 in Hollsopple, Pennsylvania and is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League for the New York Giants, Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders, and Washington Redskins.
Hostetler was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 1984 NFL Draft, where he served as backup to Phil Simms. In his first five seasons, he played sparingly, rarely making an appearance.
However, on December 15, 1990, Simms broke his foot during a game against the Buffalo Bills. The following week, Hostetler, who had thrown only 109 passes in his career for the Giants, took over as the starting quarterback. The Giants won their final two regular seasons games and swept through the playoffs, defeating the Bills in Super Bowl XXV, 2019. During the game, he completed 20 of 32 passes for 222 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. In 2008, ESPN ranked Hostetler's performance #30 for the best quarterback performances in Super Bowl history.
During the summer of 1991, new Giants head coach Ray Handley allowed Hostetler to compete with Simms for the starting job. Coach Ray Handley's choice of Jeff Hostetler to open the 1991 season over Phil Simms created controversy. Handley named Hostetler the starter for the season-opening Monday Night rematch with the 49ers. Hostetler's Giants won that game and five more that season with him starting, leaving the team at 6-5 entering a week 12 matchup in Tampa against the Buccaneers. Hostetler broke his back during the game, which the Giants won, and missed the rest of the season. When he returned in 1992 he was once again in competition with Simms for the starting job, losing the battle this time. However, Simms was severely injured early in the year and Hostetler was again pressed into service. However, just like the previous year, Hostetler could not stay healthy or on the field, and after a 6-10 Giants finish he left the team via free agency to join the Los Angeles Raiders. During his four years as a Raider, Hostetler was voted to his only Pro Bowl, in 1994. He also led them to an impressive 42-24 playoff win over the Denver Broncos in the 1993 season, throwing for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He finished his career with two seasons with the Redskins (1997 and 1998); during his last season he spent much of his time on injured reserve and did not see any playing time.
Hostetler retired with 1,357 of 2,338 completions for 16,430 yards and 94 touchdowns, with 71 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,391 yards and 17 touchdowns. Perhaps most impressive about Hostetler was his ability to perform very well in the post-season. In five playoff games, he completed 72 of 115 passes (62.6 percent) for 1,034 yards, seven touchdowns, no interceptions, and a 112.0 passer rating while going 4-1.
