Eli Manning does not belong in the Hall of Fame
The announcement that Daniel Jones is taking over Eli Manning’s job on Tuesday was followed by a flood of flowing prose touting Manning’s credentials as a sure-fire entrant into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Much of this praise arrived courtesy of respected, usually reasonable NFL reporters and opinion leaders touting Manning’s longevity and pair of Super Bowl rings as reason enough. And while it’s right and proper to give Manning his due as a Giants icon and noteworthy figure in the history of the game, make no mistake. Manning does not deserve to have his bust enshrined in Canton. The most-cited credential for Manning’s case is the most obvious one. He won two Super Bowls. This fact is being treated by many as an automatic qualifier for the Hall of Fame as if Manning upended the top seed in the MEAC to make the NCAA tournament. One of the most repeated cases for Manning’s Hall credential to surface Tuesday pointed to his longevity. For 14 straight seasons, Manning started every game at quarterback for the Giants except for his brief, one-game absence in 2017 when Ben McAdoo saw the writing on the wall and benched the declining veteran.
