Pre-Favre QBs: The Third in a Series

OK, can you name me the Packers QB during the strike games in 1987?

If you said Alan Risher, then you are correct. Alan came out of LSU and played with the Arizona Wranglers of the USFL for a couple seasons. Alan was also on the Tampa Bay Bucs roster during the 1985 season.

Alan started all 3 replacement games during the 1987 season and threw for 564 yards and 3 TDs and 3 INTs while completing nearly 60% of his passes. He was also sacked 12 times in those 3 games and fumbled 4 times, losing 3, but he did have a TD run.

Thanks to Google, we can sleep soundly knowing that Alan is now a business broker in Baton Rouge.
