    Probably Manning and Rivers. Manning's got the name and the Super Bowls. Rivers has accumulated way too many stats to not.

    Eli has two super bowl rings over Brady. 16 seasons for one team, very rare to play on one team for 16 seasons. Eventually will get in.

    All 3 are in the top 10 of passing yards so probably

    Ryan has(or will have) a better case than Rivers by the time they both retire.

    Matt Ryan sure seems to have fell off the Earth compared to the hype he used to get

    Matt Ryan really doesn’t even strike me as being on the bubble. Don’t get me wrong, he’s been head and shoulders above lots of the trash we’ve dealt with here, but I can’t see him being a strong candidate.

    My problem with is how we seemed to have lowered the bar over the years when it comes to HOF. Not just NFL but all major sports. There are good players, great players and then HOF players. I don’t think any of the three fit my definition of HOF. That being said, Manning will get in based on the two rings but IMO is not a HOF

    All 3 will probably make the HOF eventually.

    Funny that Ryan is getting the most shade when he's by far the best QB there. He's top 10 in all time yards and still has 5 years left. He averages nearly 4300 yards, 66% comp % and 27 TD's per season over 12 years.

    Ryan is a sure fire HOFer.

    I agree the HOF standards have been lowered. That said I
    would only vote for Eli because he beat NE twice.

    Maybe so. Kinda just where we stand today I don't see it for Ryan. Is he gonna play until he's 40? If Julio Jones falls off a cliff, which could happen any minute, and a coaching change happens, is Ryan gonna deal with that?

    Rivers can eclipse Marino in a lot of categories this year and end up top-5 all time statistically. Ryan’s gonna need to play at least three more years to catch Marino in passing and presumably more to catch whatever Rivers ends up at.

    I dunno. The expectation for QBs to go until they’re almost 40 or above these days is a little overplayed.
