The current state of NFL quarterbacking is in pretty good shape. Let’s take a look at exactly how good by dividing today’s QB’s into groups based on their Hall of Fame chances. Feel free to disagree.
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre
SHOULD GET THE HALL PASS
JUST KEEP IT UP, YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY
Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees
STILL A CHANCE, BUT I’M GONNA NEED TO SEE MORE
Donovan McNabb, Daunte Culpepper, Mike Vick, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselbeck
5 MORE GREAT YEARS AND WE CAN TALK
Philip Rivers, Eli Manning, Tony Romo
Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Jay Cutler
TOO EARLY TO TELL OR DISMISS
Matt Stafford, Mark Sanchez, Vince Young, Matt Leinart, Josh Freeman, Brady Quinn, JaMarcus Russell, Matt Cassel, Matt Schaub, David Garrard
YOU DID WELL, BUT IT’S NOT GONNA HAPPEN
Chad Pennington, Marc Bulger, Jeff Garcia, Jake Delhomme, Kerry Collins
If you are under 25 we’ll put you on the waiting list, otherwise you need not apply.
I’d say not bad, and it could really be something in a few years.
