Mh.... I'm not sure he'd be a shoe right now...my feeling is a couple more good seasons wouldn't hurt and prehaps cement his induction ....stopping right now could mean he doesn't get in first ballot....I do see him in the hall when its all said and done tho as long "god forbid" injury doesn't take him out of the game...he is just to good a player and cares to much about his game for that not to happen ....he's in

The guy has been clutch but he's also be horrible. He had two of the worst playoff games that a QB has ever had at home.
I'm sure he's on his way, but not if he doesn't maintain the very high standard he set last season. If he returns to "pretty good" I don't think thats good enough.
we just weight things differently I suppose MH.
I'm looking at it like this, suppose you need 100pts to get into the HOF.
great statistics like last season will give you say 10pts towards the Hall, that's how guys like Marino got in, they have 10+ seasons like that and have records as well it puts them over 100.
but I also see Super bowls wins as HUGE contributors...there are some "ok" QB's that won SB's an that's what put them over the top that are in the HOF.
a SB win and MVP to me would be worth say 40 pts....eli has TWO that puts him at 80pts purely on the fact that he has SB wins and MVPs.
Give him another 5 for the pro bowl appearance, give him another 10 for last years statistics.....and the two years before that were also pretty damn good years in my opinion even though you disagree...(because of the int's one year, which I'm sorry but...everyone knows they weren't on him) I'm gonna give him 5 for the two years before that.
he's already in.
throw in the fact that he spoiled a perfect season, that he's been clutch to the point of legend.... like Elway maybe even better then him, over his career thus far.
I'm sorry Morehead, I just can't agree with you, you are down playing everything he's done outside of the superbowl wins and ALSO not giving him the credit he's due for those.
I'm not being homerish I'm being objective you are reacting to people who are calling Eli the best QB ever and have turned against Eli, you don't look at it objectively I honestly believe if Eli was playing for another team you would be calling him a HOF...but because you have to deal with blowhards here jumping on his **** you've taken the other side just because you think someone has to.

So in my view he's had one great season. He was 4th in passing. Probably deserved a pro bowl. But other than that he's just been "very good". If he continues to play like he did last season, he's gunna be a HOF'r. No doubt about it. But lets see it.
