    OK, I'm an Eagles fan and HATED Troy Aikman.

    He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, so I say he is HOF worthy. He was a very good QB who was fortunate to also have a very good team around him, particularly his OL and skill players, as was said. But if you would've had the average NFL QB on those teams, they may not have won 3 Superbowls. You must also figure when you add up those numbers that his career was shortened, albeit slightly, by concussions. As for his highest season total not being astounding, you mentioned it nalej, it was because of that balanced attack they had with Emmit Smith running behind that line. I say Troy Aikman, without a doubt is HOF worthy.


    You have no idea how much it pains me to say that, haha.

      If the reason he's in is bc of that then he is NOT HOF worthy IMO
      just taking advantage of the situation, I guess. *shrug*
      what else would you think everything is based on? It's all about how you took your chances. It's what makes the world go 'round.

          he's not hof worthy. but will he get in? yeah.

          much to my dismay.

          here's my test:

          would the cowboys have been better with kurt warner in the same time period? i'd say yes.
          would the cowboys have been better with matt hasselbeck? about equal.

          is matt hasselbeck hof worthy? no.

            The year Aikman was drafted has got to be one of the best if not the best top five players drafted ever.

            1.Troy Aikman (HOF)

            2.Tony Mandarich

            3.Barry Sanders (HOF)

            4.Derrick Thomas (HOF)

            5.Deion Sanders (Will Be HOF)

              Taking advantage of his situation- all I meant was getting into the HOF solely on Cowboys media hype.
              If that's the case then I, ME, MYSELF, can't agree with that.

              To me- Troy Aikman is the NFL's greatest Game Manager.
              If that's good enough for ya to be in the HOF- then I guess I can't debate that anymore

                Its tough to say, I think They would've been the same with Kurt, maybe a little worse, but there is a big dropoff if you go to Hasselbeck. I don't think the Cowboys win 3 superbowls if Hasselbeck is the QB. Maybe one, but no more than that.

                    Now you see why Ryan Leaf doesn't compare to Tony Mandarich as a bust. The only pick in any sport that could possibly be worse was Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan, but the Blazers already had Clyde Drexler, so it is at least understandable.

                          He's already in

                          is matt hasselbeck hof worthy? no.

                          Aikman retired in like 2002 before either were big time/starters
                          Troy just did what he had to do to help the team win. If that meant handing it off to Emmitt, he did that. If he was needed to make some throws to win, he could do that too, although that wasn't as often. Throw in the three rings and you've got a HOF

                            the question you have to ask yourself is this:

                            how good was aikman in those three superbowls

                            28, he sucked.
                            30, he was okay, threw for 200 yards and a td.
                            27, he was good.

                              after your logic, everyone on those teams should make it. they did what they had to to win those superbowls

                                again, always the question is, do the rings make you HoF worthy?

                                handing it off to arguably the second greatest RB of all time, and the greatest run blocking OLs of all time... i believe you could plug quite a few good qb's in there and watch them flourish. good qb's do not make the HoF.
