- After this season, his career record will be under .500 (or there about)
- He'll have a completion pct under 60% (or there about)
- He has a INT pct of 3.0
- He was NEVER considered one of the 7 best QB's in the league over the course of his career.
- He has a career passer rating under 84.0
- He's played virtually his entire career in the "offense friendly" environment and his numbers aren't really any better than guys like Andy Dalton, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Alex Smith, Ryan Tannehill, and Carson Palmer... guys who will never make the H.O.F.
Let's add on and compare to a true HOF candidate with one of his contemporaries: Drew Brees - Brees has about 30 more starts so you can prorate if you like:
Passing yards: Brees 71,740 - Manning 52,737
Completion %: Brees 67.1 - Manning 60.1
Pass TDs / Ints: Brees 496-228 - Manning 343-229
Pro Bowls: Brees 11 - Manning 4
Career Record: Brees 145-107 - Manning 112-106
Top 10 in QBR from
2006 - 2017 Brees 12 (7x top 5) - Manning 4 (never top 5)
2006 was when they started QBR
I thought HOF candidates had to prove to be up with the best at their position year after year. Not having 10 of their 14 years in the league being out of the top 10 in rankings. And out of the top 5 all of those years.
