Was listening to Mike and Mike, and Cowherd was filling in for Greenie, and they brought up Simms article about how Eli Manning, as of today, if his career were to end, is a lock for the HOF.
Golic said that Simms and Cowherd(who agreed) are right, just not right now bc Eli's career isnt over. They had Peter King on to discuss it as well and King said Eli is a HOF but echoed Golics thought about how its still too early, but that Eli is a HOF.
I mean its a lock he makes the HOF, especially if he plays 5 more seasons at an avg level for himself. Which is something Golic and King said, that he would just have to play decently to be a lock. But yeah, King discussed how he's beaten NE 3x, 2 in the SB on gw drives and 1 in the reg season on GW drive. King said that in itself, bc NE is the best team of the past 15-20 yrs, is Canton worthy.
I personally think hes 100% lock first ballot when all is said and done.
