  • Troy Aikman- HOF worthy?

    Since I've read "A" player should be in the HOF
    I decided to make "B" player should NOT be in the HOF

    Troy Aikman

    (Career) 32,942 yds- 165 TDs- 141 Int- 61.5%- 81.6 QB Rating
    (Season Hi's) 3,445 yds- 23 tds

    Other QBs in the same era:

    J. Elway--- 51,475 yds- 300 TDs- 226 Int- 56.9%- 79.9 QB Rating
    J. Kelly---- 35,467 yds- 237 TDs- 175 Int- 60.1%- 84.4 QB Rating
    D. Marino-- 61,361 yds- 420 TDs- 252 Int- 59.4%- 86.4 QB Rating
    W. Moon-- 49,325 yds- 291 TDs- 233 Int- 58.4%- 80.9 QB Rating
    J. Montana-40,551 yds- 273 TDs- 139 Int- 63.2%- 92.3 QB Rating
    S. Young-- 33,124 yds- 232 TDs- 107 Int- 64.3%- 96.8 QB Rating


    He played with a Great O-Line, the All Time leading rusher and a HOF WR.
    I don't see anything that says HOF to me. Not one bit.
    He was the QB of 3 SB teams. Yes. I see him more of a game manager though.
    Not a HOF QB that can take over games. *shrug*

    I'm just bored and wanted to debate something..... opinions?

    Yes.He earned his rice of passage.

    What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
    they get smoked.

      If you leave Troy Aikman out for having a good supporting cast then you need to take a whole bunch of other players out. Also, Aikman was helping the other players around him just like they helped him. Should Michael Irvin be left out because he had a HoF QB throwing to him and all those other players around him? Ok then.

        He never threw for more then 3400 yds and 23 TDs.
        His success came from the fear of E. Smith and that big OL not the other way around.

        That's how I see it, at least.
        M. Irvin's 750-12000-65 is good but the 3 rings got him in

          Its a team sport you gotta have a good supporting cast in order to succeed in the NFL. There is no way he will be left out of the Hall of Fame.

            If he had only won one Superbowl you could probably make a much better case, but you throw in solid stats and three superbowls and it's much harder to argue against him.

              I agree on the "team sport" comment.
              Here's my thing though- when we talk about people who aren't in yet
              The negative talk is "He didn't put that GREAT of numbers. If he was GREAT/HOF worthy then he'd put up numbers regardless of who his surrounding cast is.

              For example: People are saying that T. Holt needs more productive years to get in.

              Torry Holt: 869 rec- 12,260 yds- 74 TDs
              Mike Irvin: 750 rec- 11,904 yds- 65 TDs

                i think there is a difference between HoF Worthy and making it into the HoF.

                im not quite sure, but Holt played in a much more pass oriented offense than Irvin

                  Sure, but Holt still played with very productive RBs though (Faulk and Jackson)
                  So it's not like the QB is stepping back and throwing it 50 times a game ala McNabb

                    You bring up some interesting points but like others have said the 3 superbowl rings make him a HOF in my book. He's the only ex or current cowboys player I really like. I know people hate Joe Buck but I love him and Aikman.

                        Troy Aikman would smack you nay sayers, but it is hard for him to lift a hand weighted down by 3 Super Bowl rings...

                        On a serious note, not everything is stats. Look at Namath. No way he has the numbers.

                          well there are always guys getting in because of the Media, their fame not exactly always because they were the best of the best.

                          Its just like I dont know why Ray Guy and Cris carter arent in

                            Wasn't Joe Namath the 1st to throw for 4000 yds?
                            Also, I know Stats changer per era so that's why I put up the numbers of the other HOF QBs that he played against

                              See- media reasoning- that's a load of bull.
                              I under that the Cowboys were real famous in the mid 90's.
                              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*
