Playing career[edit] USFL[edit] Hebert was among the best quarterbacks in the USFL's short history. In 1983, he won the USFL championship with the Michigan Panthers, defeating the Philadelphia Stars, 24–22. The team struggled a bit with injuries in 1984 and a weakened squad was knocked out of the playoffs by Steve Young's Los Angeles Express 27–21 in triple OT. In 1985, the Panthers were merged with the Oakland Invaders

In three years in the USFL, Hebert completed 773 of 1,407 passes for 13,137 passing yards. He is the USFL's all-time leader in passing yardage.[1] NFL[edit] In 1985, his rookie season with the NFL's New Orleans Saints, and in 1986, he split time with quarterback Dave Wilson. In 1987, he was made starting quarterback with John Fourcade as back up. In 1991 and 1992 he led the Saints to excellent starts and impressive playoff appearances.
