You are in the minority on this. He will get it.
-Has 8 pro bowl appearances (every QB with that many is in)
-6th all-time in passing touchdowns and on top of that everyone with 300+ is in. Also has an outside chance of getting to 500 if he remains healthy and plays another 3-4 years.
-8th in passing yards and passed the 50,000 mark (again everyone with that many is either in the HOF or is going to get in)
-208 career consecutive starts and should pass Eli's streak for the second longest early next year (knock on wood).
-Lead the league in YPA for three straight years (2008-2010). The only QB's to do that are Young and Warner (both in the HOF).
-I also think Rivers lead the league in QB rating over a three year span from 2008-2010.
-One of only six players in NFL history to have at least 4 100 QB rating seasons with over 400 attempts. Brees has 7, Rodgers, Brady, and Peyton have 6, Young has 4, and Rivers has 5. Everyone on that list is in the HOF.
-The most telling statistic is ANY/A. Rivers is 5th all time. That tells you he is just not a volume passer, but he has been highly efficient. In fact, the gap between Rivers and Drew Brees in that regard is smaller then the gap between Rivers and Cam and Stafford. And even when you adjust the number to era, Rivers still comes out in the top 5.
Comparing him to Bledsoe is ridiculous, they weren't on the same planet as players. His resume is pretty similar to Warren Moon (who is in). The only difference is the an all-pro appearance for Moon and we know Rivers should have been an all-pro in 2008. Other then that Rivers has better numbers (both bulk and efficiency) and has also played in an AFC championship game, while Moon didn't.
As for media members? I suggest you actually do better research.
Sando and Legwood are actually HOF voters.
This is from two years ago and Rivers has only added on to his resume given his play the last two years.
Hell, even Jason Whitlock who doesn't think Rivers should get in, thinks he will get in.
Also lmao of bringing up Stafford, this is why Rivers is vastly underrated. Stafford isn't even in the same ball park. He has bulk stats, lacks efficiency, and has made one pro bowl. The disconnect between fans from coaches and personnel people in the NFL about Rivers is amazing.
