I found out he retired by seeing like 4 twitter threads where dudes were actually trying to say this man belongs in the HOF because of his postseason bulk stats alone lol

 Add Ward too

But he brought me 6 to my front door step nonetheless. 

...all without throwing a single touchdown, catching a single pass, making a single tackle. 

Kinda hard to win games without a guy who can do at least one of those things.

Also hard to do without the greatest coach of all time.

I know many will say the play they’ll remember the most from him was the SB catch against Atlanta where the ball was basically on the ground... but for me it was his catch and run against Seattle in the SB after taking a direct hit from Chancellor. That dude was just dropping people left and right all year and Edelman took his best shot and didn’t go down. Guy was tough as nails.

Zero rings without said QB, last I checked.

Didn't miss it. Brought it up 15 minutes ago. Maybe YOU missed this?

The argument for Edelman is similar to that for Eli - solely playoff performance. And there a lot of people who think Eli should get in. If you're going that route, then the argument for Edelman is arguably as strong as that for Eli.

I don't think either should get in.

Literally any discussion about why a player deserves to be in the HOF, Edelman is in that conversation. 

But he shouldn't be. His stats aren't even Hines Ward good. Hines, Wayne, and others who are significantly better than Edleman aren't in the Hall. Edleman has no business in that discussion at all whatsoever

People who say he belongs in the Hall of Fame are trippin'.

People who say there shouldn't even be a conversation about it are trippin' just as much, though.

Where's the lie, though? Neither was ever an exceptional player outside of the postseason.
