    Should Big ben and eli be in the Hall of fame if they were to retire today?

    Ive been seeing a lot of posts where people are angry at kurt for saying eli and ben are not HOF players as of now.

    This is a touchy subject. What is it that qualifies someone to be in the HOF? Is it stats? Wins? championships?

    If rodgers wins the superbowl next year, should he be in the HOF is he retires?

    What are your thoughts? I want to know your opinions.

    Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

    oh my bad, i'll answer the other Question.

    It's whoever they want to vote into the hall of fame, No true system

    Dan Marino= got in because of stats

    Joe namath= Got in because of Guarantee

    Terry Bradshaw= Got in because of championships

    Joe Montana= Stats and Champion ships

    it's really just whoever they want in

    [quote user="Marvelousmik"]Ive been seeing a lot of posts where people are angry at kurt for saying eli and ben are not HOF players as of now.

    This is a touchy subject. What is it that qualifies someone to be in the HOF?* Is it stats? Wins? championships?

    [/quote]Nope but that's because I tend to rate League MVP and offensive player of the year awards higher than winning Superbowls.

    Before someone comes in and bashes me for saying "But the Superbowl is all that matters", the Superbowl isn't won by a single individual. It's a team effort.

    Both of these guys will also be compared to their peers in the current era and while they are very good, the stats just don't match up AT THIS POINT.

    With that said, I do think Eli will get into the HoF as long as he plays consistent from now on.

    Big Ben will probably need another Superbowl victory.

    HOF is not as easy to get into as people think it is. look at parcells. (great injustice btw)


    going to have to see at least one league MVP and a few more seasons as a top passer. (both)

    If Eli Manning and Ben Rothlisberger retired today, they should by all accounts go to the HoF.

    yeah lets put rodgers in and anyone named matt that throws 40td passes and 5000 yards also.


    HOF is not just given automatically.
