If you hadn't watched football prior to this year and someone asked you to guess who the league MVP was in 2002, Rich Gannon wouldn't be anywhere on your list.

In one season, he has gone from perhaps the best quarterback in the league to an aged player with more flaws than discount diamond. It's difficult to believe he's the same player, but he'll turn 38 in two months, and everyone knew that one of these years he just wasn't going to have it anymore.
