The NFL Rookie Watch Twitter account brought up Luck’s career stats and accomplishments, noting that he’ll be Hall of Fame eligible next year. Luck stunned the football world when he retired shortly before the 2019 season, and a month prior to his 30th birthday.
This led to a debate among football fans on social media. Needless to say, the overwhelming majority simply don’t appear to be buying the idea that he’ll get in.
It’s definitely hard to envision Luck earning his place in Canton, given how short his career was. Some will point out that Denver Broncos’ legend Terrell Davis got in even though his career was cut short by injuries, as he had just four healthy seasons.
But Davis also won two Super Bowl championships, Super Bowl 32 MVP honors, two Offensive Player of the Year Awards and the 1998 league MVP. Davis twice led the NFL in rushing touchdowns and earned 1990s All-Decade Team honors.
MVP-winning quarterbacks like Ken Anderson, Boomer Esiason and Joe Theismann (the latter won a Super Bowl with Washington) aren’t in the Hall of Fame. Without the individual accolades and longevity, it’s going to be awfully difficult for the Stanford product to earn a spot in Canton.
