Maybe Palmer DOES have a case for HOF

By: PasadenaTrojan

I ranked group below by overall career QBR ranking. 

Damn 49er fans sure were spoiled - look at top 2.  I remember that all too well. I was a BIG ram fan growing up and plenty of bad endings there.

As I mentioned before I don't think Aikman is a HOF.  He is rich famous and a SB champion.  Not a bad consolation prize. After looking at other HOF'ers I would say i still think that.  Even with 3 SB's.  But his total yards and TD's are behind everyone but Bradshaw who played in different era.  His TD to INT differential is also very poor. Fouts was surprisingly low here as well. Bradshaw had the lowest. Only 2. 

Aikman is only HOF member who has less than 200 TD's.  (Only 165)

At same time and being consistent, this shows that Moon and Kelly and even Fouts maybe shouldn't be in as well...not sure I buy that myself.

Favre had much better TD to INT differential that I recall. Wow. Stud.   

Elway numbers are way below than what I expected.  TD to INT differential is not very impressive. Either is his QBR ranking.

Young's numbers are better than I remember as well.  Wow. Stud.

But Fouts and Moon are in without a SB win so maybe Palmer has precedence there. 

Aikman, Fouts, Elway, Moon and Bradshaw had "very average" QBR rankings. Some surprises there.


When I have more time maybe I'll add Brady, Manning's Brees and Cam (lol that was a joke).


Palmer's numbers are quite compelling.  Issue is different era and very tough competition like Brady Manning's Brees and of course his team's lack of playoff success.


Next time Aikman acts like he walks on water on Fox telecast remember the 165 TD's.  He should name his son Emmitt.
