    Very true... and I think that is kinda what @giggawatt was saying in the OP. Any QB without rings would have to have records, not just impressive stats.

    Warren Moon collected some hardware up in Canada (Grey Cup x 5) prior to moving to the NFL.

    Do you guys think that Big Ben and Little Manning will be HOFers because of their multiple rings?

    Little Manning will be. He plays in NY and his last name is Manning. Unless the rest of his career is like this year, he's in. Big Ben is a different story. He's got the ring, but his stats aren't as impressive as others, and he plays in Pittsburgh. I think he'll need another ring.

    Agree he'll probably get in on his name and his 2 rings came as a result of defeating a true HOFer, Tom Brady.

    Pretty much agree with what @sandsjames posted.

    One doesn't usually get two rings for winning one SB....adding twice is a bit redundant don't you think?

    Rings aren't the end-all be-all but they sure don't hurt. For a borderline HOF'er they will tip the scales. With free-agency the way it is, a QB can go to another team-some to several-to get a better shot at a ring. Hell look at what Eli did when he came in the league? He was already pretending he was the best QB ever born....
