    Kurt Warner says Eli isnít a Hall of Famer



    Quarterback Kurt Warner retired two years ago with a body of work that likely will put him in Canton. If he gets there, he may not be welcoming Eli Manning with open arms.




    In an appearance with Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 620 in Phoenix, Warner made the case against Eliís potential induction into the Hall of Fame.




    ďI fully disagree with that,Ē Warner said of talk that Eli will get in. ďYou know because I know we put a lot of weight on championships, and rightfully so. But championships are won as a team, and Iím fully convinced of that. You never see one guy ó a great player, great quarterback ó carry a team through the playoffs and into a Super Bowl and win a Super Bowl that way. Iíve never seen it. You know even in that game [Super Bowl XLVI], itís 21-17. Thatís the game. There wasnít a quarterback just up and down the field carrying the team.

    Eli Manning single-handedly got this team to the playoffs. He's a 2-time SB MVP. Every other 2-time SBMVP is is an all time great. Eli is at least a HOFer. Sorry Kurt. I know you would have liked to stay in NY.

    Even if Eli wins 2 more Superbowls, Warner will come a silly reason why he doesn't belong in the HOF. It sounds to me he is very jealous of Eli.

    Assuming that Eli plays for another 4 - 8 years and performs at the level he's been at the last few, he will be a shoe in, bonefide first ballot hall of famer, with pretty much all relevant quarterback stats in the top 10 ALL TIME. Couple that with the 2 championships and Superbowl MVPs, and it's just a no brainer.

    Nothing but sour grapes!! He's still pissed about getting benched for Eli.

    If Eli quit tomorrow he would not make the HOF. He needs a few more years like 2011 to cement it. Not necessarily more SBs but more good seasons.

    I have an idea, let's wait until his career is over and then we can debate it! Until then no one can predict it, not even Kurt!
