Recap of the 1999 NFL Football Season
The 80th NFL season began, as always, with the April NFL Draft. That year the Cleveland Browns were welcomed back into the league and was awarded the #1 pick in the draft. They chose Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch. 1999 was also the year that Donovan McNabb was picked #2 overall by the Philadelphia Eagles and Daunte Culpepper was picked #11 by the Minnesota Vikings. Other notables in the first round included Edgerrin James picked by the Indianapolis Colts, and Ricky Williams who was chosen by the New Orleans Saints after New Orleans traded all their draft picks to get him. Torry Holt (6), David Boston (8) and Jevon Kearse (11) were also taken in the first round.
As stated before the Cleveland Browns returned to football for their first season since 1995. Also the Tennessee Oilers changed their name to the Titans and the Oilers were retired by the NFL. Instant replay was also brought back to the NFL using a system that mirrored the old USFL.
The Super Bowl champs Denver Broncos fell to the bottom of the AFC West making room for the Jacksonville Jaguars to climb to the top with a record of 14-2. Indianapolis had a record year as well going 13-3. Seattle found their way to the postseason as the #3 seed. Tennessee, Buffalo and Miami rounded out the postseason. Likewise in the NFC the Atlanta Falcons also found themselves in the bottom of their division with the St. Louis Rams taking the torch in the new millennium going 13-3. Tampa bay and Washington also had lopsided winning records in 1999. Minnesota, Dallas and Detroit rounded out the playoff picture.
As the NFL said goodbye to two premier quarterbacks of the previous decade, John Elway and Steve Young, other veteran quarterbacks picked up the slack. Steve Beurlein of Carolina took it up a notch gunning for 4,436 yards in the 1999 campaign. Newcomer Kurt Warner of the Rams also threw for over 4,300 yards taking his team to their best record in 10 years. Warner also threw for over 40 touchdowns in his breakout year. 1999 was also the year that Barry Sanders retired from football on top of his game leaving rookie running back Edgerrin James to fill his shoes. James ran for 1,553 yards for the Colts. Curtis Martin and Stephen Davis also ran for over 1,400 yards. Stephen Davis led all running backs in the league with 17 touchdowns. Jimmy Smith and Marvin Harrison grabbed 116 and 115 balls respectively. Harrison also led the league in receiving yards with 1,663.
The Jacksonville Jaguars led all teams in defense in 1999 only giving up 217 points in the campaign.
Quarterback Kurt Warner gained MVP honors in 1999. Marshall Faulk, traded to St. Louis in the off season, earned Offensive Rookie of the Year honors as Warren Sapp earned Defensive Rookie of the Year. Edgerrin James of the Colts earned Offensive Rookie of the Year and Jevon Kearse of Tennessee garnered Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Super Bowl 34 featured the St. Louis Rams defeating the Tennessee Titans 23-16. On the final play of the game St. Louis safety Mike Jones tackled Titans receiver Kevin Dyson on the 1 yard line stopping a potential game-tying touchdown. Kurt Warner threw for 414 yards and 2 touchdowns to become the Super Bowl MVP.
