    The primary argument against him will probably be consistency.

    His career QB rating is significantly lower than peers who will be locks like Roethlisberger, Peyton, etc.

    Agreed with the latter; the former is more what interests me, and what the poll question is really asking. Changed thread title to make it clearer.

    The 7th in passing yards/TDs thing doesn't mean much to me. Virtually every modern QB is rewriting the record books because of the rule changes and offensive innovations.

    I don't mind seeing Eli get in. There's definitely an argument for and against but fuck it he beat the Pats twice.

    Depends on how you want to view the Hall.

    I don't think he was ever one of the true elite QBs of his era, but he was definitely very good and had some incredible playoff runs that are hall worthy.

    He kept us from Pats fans becoming even more insufferable with an undefeated season, so I'm cool with him making it for that alone

    was with a buddy and his wife watching a texans/pats playoff game. some masshole douche comes up and starts talking shit to us. i say how i am a giants fan so we can go down that route if he wants. dude immediately apologizes and offers to buy us a round

    he prevented idiots like that from being able to run around unencumbered in life.

    name canton after him ffs

    he was literally the only one in the front office who knew eli was washed. of course he went about it like the idiot he is and started geno instead of davis webb

    I don't even know what it takes to get into the hall of fame with the way the T.O. thing played out. Was he ever a top 5 qb in the league? He never made an all-pro team

    They are all in and I know the game has changed but go back and look at Stabler and Griese’s seasons. Almost half of their career they’re less than 20 TDs a season and half of them they have more INTs than TDs.

    If they are in he’s a no brainer.

    I think Bob Griese is a bad example. He was a really good QB in the 70s. Nobody was throwing 30 TDs at the time. The Eagles led the league in passing in 1973 with 2,998 yards as a team. Their 23 passing TDs was second.

    Phillip Rivers destroys Eli in every statistical category but super bowl wins and he'll barely get a sniff at the HOF.

    He also refuses to QB sneak though so deserves it.

    I chuckle when people use 2 SB wins as if he won them on his own. He won 2 SB's bc his defense played their ass off. They won while scoring 17 and 21 points. If he goes in, every single player on their defense should go in too bc they affected the game as much or more than Eli. In both playoffs that ended in SB's, the defense gave up 15ppg. They never gave up 21. In fact, he never won a playoff game where his defense gave up 21 or more. Eli didn't have to win games, he just couldn't lose them. Take out the 2 SB's that he was carried to and it's laughable to suggest he's a HOF'er.

    Eli's best statistical season 2015? 4,432 yards 62.6% completion, 35 TDs 14 INTs
    His best season he was 6th in yards, 16th in completion % (QBs who played 12+ games) 4 way tie for second in TDs (Bortles in that tie)
