Totally biased, but yes.

7th all time in yards and TDs

2 SB MVPs

Always tended to step up in pressure situations.

Anyone who watches this team week after week knows the front office did this guy no favors with bad draft after bad draft. That, even more than his skills declining, affected his overall record.

This guy put the entire 2011 season on his back. No running game and the 27th ranked defense in the league. He had to beat team almost. Took one of the greatest ass kickings ever in SF and still delivered.

Playing for the Giants will almost assure he gets in; take his stats and put him in KC or Seattle and he doesn't get a sniff of the HOF.

Manning was 117-117 as a starter. Statistically, he consistently was ranked outside the top ten and only made the Pro Bowl a few times. No. His career stats may look good compared to the older guys that didn't throw on every play, but when compared to his comtemporaries, he's in the middle of the pack.

Joe Namath had a losing record as a QB, but guaranteed a Super Bowl win and came through.  The big wins are more important than the irrelevant losses.

Roethlisberger  2x,  Brees 1x, Rivers 0x, Rodgers 1x, Eli  2x, Brady 6x
They all get in from this era
