Matthew Stafford put in a colossal performance to help the LA Rams to Super Bowl glory on Sunday, but not everyone is convinced that the quarterback is cut out for the Hall of Fame status yet.

ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky called Stafford’s performances in the run up to the elusive Super Bowl title “one of, if not the the most clutch stretch of postseason performance by a QB ever.”

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Richard Sherman took to Twitter to question whether or not Stafford’s career warrants him a HoF spot.

“The HOF bar is incredibly low now,” he wrote on Twitter. “Like a participation trophy.”

He went onto list Stafford’s credentials, or lack thereof: “No all decade team. No All pro. No MVP. 1 Pro bowl. Not even MVP of the SB. Never considered the best in any year he played.”

Sherman went on to engage with multiple tweets backing up his point.

“He gets his day [in the sunlight] brother. But just throwing around HOF like that just irks me,” he replied to CBS anchor Joe Musso. “So many had to be dominant to make it.”


He wrote to CBS writer, Will Brinson: “There is no measuring stick that makes Stafford a hall of fame other than playing in the most passer happy decade in NFL history.”


Only time will tell whether or not this Super Bowl victory will be enough to seal Stafford’s place among some of the greats in the NFL Hall of Fame.
