    Super Bowls and Hall of Fame

    Big Ben and Little Manning are living proof that multiple SB rings do not mean you belong in the HOF.

    Agree or disagree?

    How about the other side of the coin? Can a QB be a HOFer without any SB rings?

    Agree!

    Also agree! I have always considered it unfair that a huge component of the judgment of a QB is rings.
    When things go wrong in your command, start searching for the reason in increasingly larger concentric circles around your own desk.

    Dan Marino: played in 1 SB, zero rings. One of the all-time great QBs, in the HOF.

    Joe Namath: guaranteed a win in SB III (and did it!) Was 62-63-4 as a starter, 50.1% completions, 173 TDs, 220 INTs. In the HOF.

    Interesting. Did the guarantee get him in the HOF?

    Warren Moon... On the right team just like Marino he would have had rings.

    It sure wasn't his stats! The guarantee, the number #1 flash as he left the field at halftime. The sideburns?

    Warren Moon played several years in Canada too. I saw his name on the all-time passing yards list, #5 maybe?

    Two things helped Namath into the HoF. Marketing and location. If he was QB of a small market team he never would have made it.

    The thing for most without rings is that they have records. Records will get you into the hall, even without the ring.

    If Moon had been white he never would have made it. But that's not a bad thing. He was the First in a line of successful black quarterbacks and his stats were very good.
