Let the debate begin. Never mind, it's already begun. Now that Matthew Stafford has won a Super Bowl (something his detractors said would never happen), talk has begun of whether or not he deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To be fair, he has plenty of career left and could tack on another Super Bowl season again. The Rams have the third highest odds of winning it all again next year. One person who has doubled down on Stafford not belonging is 3 time pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman. He stated on his podcast that Stafford has none of the accolades that would generally make him a no-brainer. He went on to say the bar is 'incredibly low now'. He noted that Stafford has only been voted to the Pro Bowl once, was never MVP, Never All-Pro, Didn't make All-Decade team and was never considered the best QB of his era. To be fair, Tom Brady will unquestionably be his era's best but Sherman has made his point.
This debate looks like it isn't going to end soon. Fortunately for Stafford it appears he still has several years left to make his case.
