Wait, are we talking about Flacco just visting the HOF? In that case, I don't see why not, as long as it's during regular business hours. He seems like the kind of guy that would slip in five minutes before closing and then linger, though.
remember in the OP I offered a stipulation under which we'd have this discussion: if Flacco and the Ravens win the title this year.
if they do he would be up to 9 playoff wins, 7 on the road, 3 AFC title game appearances, and a title. he has started every game since entering the league and won about 2/3 of them. his YPA and TD:INT compare very favorably to Eli Manning's over the first five years of each respective career. what's so absurd?
Reasons and there are plenty :
1.First qb to win at least 1 playoff games in first 5 years
2.Outplay Brady last playoffs and Manning this playoffs,remember the Lee Evans drop last year?
3.Has he ever really had good wrs and easy tight end targets like Brady and or other offenses
4.He throws a perfect deep ball and has ideal size of 6 ft 6
5.He is consistant,while Big Ben and Eli already missed the playoffs a bunch the past 5 years and that's his competition to make the top 5 ahead of those 2.Eli missed playoffs 3 out of 5 years and Big ben 2 out of 5.Flacco has yet to miss them.
There are only two QB's in the league presently who would be locks for the HOF if they retired tomorrow, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Maybe Brees would have an outside shot. That's it.
Roethlisberger and Eli shouldn't go in simply because of two Championships. If winning two Superbowls automatically gets you into the HOF as a QB, then where the hell is Phil Simms? Where's Jim Plunkett?
Rodgers is well on his way but hasn't played long enough.
