Matthew Stafford is not a Hall of Fame QB, says Richard Sherman


Now that Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has that elusive Super Bowl championship, start the discussion about his chances in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

As soon as the clock hit triple zeros at SoFi Stadium after the Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20, the discussion of Stafford’s belonging to Canton began.

It started early Monday morning when analysts from the NFL Network and ESPN decided whether Stafford had done enough to get a gold jacket.

“Yes, it’s a gold jacket, ABSOLUTELY. The team’s ultimate goal, to win a Lombardi, Matthew Stafford actually did, and he was a big part of winning that Super Bowl,” noted former NFL guard Michael Robinson.

Former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky, who was Stafford’s teammate with the Detroit Lions, even wore a t-shirt on air during ESPN’s “Get Up” which said “Matthew Freakin’ Stafford”.

Orlovsky invented this rationale for potential Stafford induction: “I honestly believe this is one of, if not the most important post-season performance by a QB EVER!”

But cornerback Richard Sherman, who won a Super Bowl title with the Seattle Seahawks and is a three-time All-Pro, was quick to say.

“There’s no measuring stick that makes Stafford a Hall of Famer other than playing in the happiest passing decade in NFL history,” Sherman said on social media. “Inflated numbers make every QB who starts more than 10 a ‘hof’

Sherman noted that Stafford made a Pro Bowl, wasn’t named an All-Pro, and never won MVP.

Stafford, 34, has a career record of 86-95-1 as a starting quarterback with 49,995 yards with 323 touchdowns and 161 interceptions.
