Re: McNabb, Warner, and the Hall of Fame

Championships are only one part of the equation here. If they were a litmus test, then Sonny Jurgensen would not be in the HoF. His only brush with a championship team came as a benchwarmer with the 1960 Philadelphia Eagles. He had a losing record as a starting QB for his career.

Does anyone here think that Theisman or Williams or Rypien was a better QB than Jurgensen because those three were on Super Bowl winners and Jurgensen was not? If you do, that would indicate to me that one of two things is going on here:


1. You never saw Sonny Jurgensen play football - - or - -

2. You are living in a delusion.

The key point is which QB I want to start a SuperBowl. I did consider Rivers and he had a much better year than Favre but I would rather have Favre in a SB Game. It was a tossup but I wouldn't feel comfortable with Rivers just yet.


BTW, Colt Brennen was my 6th choice JK.

You can't pick and choose to take away this or that. His resume is what it is, a Hall of Fame one. There's no debating it at this point because he's already in.
I would debate it........call me a hater, but he's overated!

He had a wide reciever that could almost always push off and get open.

He also had a really good offensive line. If he had wanted too he could have put the football on the ground and counted to ten before throwing a pass!

Plus, he's the reason why we got that infamous tuck rule now! You know from that game back in the '92 season...........I think it was in '92. When Irvin failed to push off off Darrell Green so Aikman was forced to 'tuck' the football; then one of our guys knocks it out of his hands. Emmitt picked up it then fumbled it too. One of our guys jumped on it and we won......................you remember what I'm talking about right? Just for that dumb rule alone he shouldn't have ever gotten in!

Last but not least........he can't even take a hit! I know Arrington leveled him, but still! HOFer's are supposed to be able to get up from those!

Re: McNabb, Warner, and the Hall of Fame

Warner is indeed a HOF'er, but I'm still unsure about McNabb. If Donovan wins a SB this season, then maybe he has a slim chance.

Kurt Warner: Career Stats
We're talking HoF here so you can include any year where he didn't play much or the numbers were poor by most standards.

2002 (started 0-3 and threw 7 INTs and 1 TD...he injured his finger).
2003 (was replaced by Bulger after fumbling six times in the home opener).
2004 (played 10 games, 5-4 record with 6 TDs and 4 INTs...was replaced by manning due to poor performance).
2005 (played 10 games, 2-8 record with 11 TDs and 9 INTs).
2006 (played 7 games, with a 1-4 record 6TDs and 5 INTs and poor play he was once again replaced by Leinart).


I am now more than ever convinced that he doesn't deserve to be in the HoF. If Warner gets in I think Terrell Davis should also get in.

HoF compasses an entire career, granted Favre should've retired...but for the most part of his career, he was a great QB.

And during those average years we never made the playoffs, he never made the team better or could not carry a team like McNabb does. 82, 83 and 84 were his best years and 3 good seasons doesn't get you in. In 85 when he broke his leg he was playing pretty bad and Gibbs refused to bench him. But maybe he'd get more of a look if we win that 83 SB cause he was the QB of one of the best offenses of all time.
Let's see Joey T. played in 2 SB, won 1 lost 1, was league MVP the year they lost to the Raiders (1983-4 season) and was the QB of a record scoring team which broke the all time record at the time. Plus Joey T. returned punts .

What has McNabb done besides good stats, 1 SB (3 int's) many playoff loses, no league MVP (runner up 1 year).

You're kidding right?

Aikman was one of the toughest QBs to play the game. He routinely took some wicked shots and always got back up. His first few years before that OL was built up he got rocked on a weekly basis and had countless concussions over the course of his career.

Debate all you want whether he's a Hall of Famer or not, but one thing that shouldn't be debated is the guy's toughness. He was as tough as they come. By the time Arrington took him out he was a light breeze away from retiring.
