David Henry Humm (born April 2, 1952) is a former professional football player, a quarterback in the NFL from 1975–84 for the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Colts, and Los Angeles Raiders. He played college football at the University of Nebraska.
He accepted a scholarship from the University of Nebraska, where he was a three-year starter from 1972–74, under head coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne. He was a part of the 1971 National Championship team as the backup quarterback.
Humm, a left-hander, was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the fifth round of the 1975 NFL Draft, the 128th overall pick. The next year he was a part of the Super Bowl XI championship team. He was the backup to Ken Stabler for 5 seasons and was also an effective holder for a field goals or extra points, with the unusual habit of arriving on the field with no shoulder pads, which tipped the opposing team that a fake field goal was unlikely.
In 1981, he signed as a free agent with the Baltimore Colts. That year, the game between the Colts and the Dallas Cowboys would be the only start in his NFL career, in which he completed 7 of 24 passes for 90 yards and 2 interceptions, in a 13–37 loss. Notably, the opposing quarterback for the Cowboys, Glenn Carano, was also making his first and only NFL start, the only time in league history two "one and done" quarterbacks have ever faced off.
Humm holds the distinction of being the only Raiders player that was a member of both the Raiders' 1976 Super Bowl XI and 1983 Super Bowl XVIII championship teams, but not the 1980 Super Bowl XV championship team in between the other two.
In 1988, Humm was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 36 and lost the use of his legs in 1997. He has set up a broadcasting studio in his home and continues as a color commentator for the Oakland Raiders.
