I agree completely with you but I feel like we had this same conversation about Kurt Warner and you were against him being HofF so this surprises me.
Maybe it wasn't you. It was awhile ago.
Regardless, I look at it as the Hall of FAME not the Hall of Stats or the Hall of Champions. I like seeing people get in that tell the story of football as much as those that were elite or champions.

He's a volume passer on a team that had a brief moment but never ultimately got to the promised land.
Compare him to Eli and Ben who were in the same draft class (along with JP Losman, Matt Schaub, and Luke McKown) and what are we supposed to really remember or appreciate him for?
Other than the memes, I mean, get that he's been a godsend for memes.

64.5 percent career passing.
If the hof was tighter with who got in he probably gets in, based on now, he’s a hof.
