    Also, do you think we'd be having this conversation if Eli wasn't playing his game at the same time as literally a handful of other HOF Quarterbacks? lol....

    I mean, his brother, Brady, Brees? All shoe-ins.....Rodgers....it'd be hard to say he's going to slow his pace....
    I mean, he's got alot to compete with in terms of fitting into MH's definition of great....idk, that may be a moot point to some, but it weighs heavily in my mind.

    I think so too. The fact that it's debatable is a positive thing for most of us.

    I disagree with this, you simply can not compare stats from that era to this one, I mean you used to pretty much be able to tackle receivers while the ball was in the air back then...not to mention QB's.

    now you can't touch a QB at all and receivers have to have caught the ball and taken a few steps before you can pop them too!

    passing stats are inflated nowadays.

    Well, I would assume that Brady and Brees will retire before Eli, and Rodgers after that....so i dont know if that would be a factor...but, ya never know.
