    I voted yes. Since its the QB's job to lead his team to win a superbowl. If he never does, job failed in my opinion, and you can't have a failure in the HOF.
    The name is Amendola....

    But the HOF is a joke how the hell do you not have Chris Carter an Bill Parcells in it? With that being said the HOF isn't about rings it's about stats moments seasons an W/L lets say Michael Vick dosent ever wins a Super Bowl. I expect him to be in there and if he's not I want to meet the ppl who decides who gets in an who dosent.

    Not necessarily because some QBs have to do more heavy-lifting than others. Some QBs have great coaches, teammates, and front office who know how to build a championship-caliber team. Others have to deal with garbage at every level. There's a lot of luck, or rather "right place, right time" involved in success.

    No I don't believe he does. While the great majority of all time QBs lead their teams to Superbowl wins (winning doesn't make a QB great, but greatness usually results in winning, I like to say), there are a few, undeniable exceptions. Dan Marino, for example, doesn't need to do anything to validate his career.

    A team is more than a QB, its a reason there are 53 guys on a team.

    So no a SB win does not make a QB's career.

    No, Dan Marino proves that.

    Obviously some exceptions (Marino) but generally think they do.

    What has Vick done in his career to get him into the HOF? Just cause he has ran for a bunch of yards deosn't mean he deserves to be in.

    Vick is further away from the HOF than Eli is

    To stay on topic, no I don't think that it's necessary .

    If your brain functions properly, you understand that a championship is a team award. Not an individual player. No matter how important that person was, how skilled he/she is, you cannot provide any substance to the argument that they aren't as good as other people because their teammates weren't as good. If you apply this thought process anywhere else, you start to see how stupid it is. For example, would you blame the highest test scorer in your class if as an average the class test score was lower than another? No.
    As always, flame responsibly.

    To validate his career - you could make the argument.

    To validate his individual achievements - not at all.
