Since his retirement, Donovan McNabb has never been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but he wants that to change.
The former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback recently spoke with TMZ Sports and explained why he’s a hall of fame quarterback and used his numbers against Hall of Fame quarterback and three-time Super Bowl winner, Troy Aikman.
“I’m not hesitating on that. I am a Hall of Famer,” McNabb said on a TMZ Sports TV Show. “My numbers speak for themselves. My numbers are better than Troy Aikman.”
“When they look at my numbers, yeah, but then they always want to add other stuff into it. ‘Was he an All-Pro? Was he this? How many Super Bowl opportunities?’” McNabb said via TMZ.com. “But, people don’t realize how hard it is to get to the NFC Championship and to get there five times, and then make it to a Super Bowl? It’s tough.”
Whether he likes it or not, winning a Super Bowl greatly improves the chances of a player getting into the hall of fame.
For his career, McNabb has 37,276 passing yards, 234 passing TDs and 117 career interceptions.
Aikman has 32,942 passing yards, 165 passing TDs and 141 career picks. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
