If you were one of those people that thinks Matt Stafford staked his claim to the hall of fame after the Super Bowl, Richard Sherman is here to slow you down on that opinion.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback is raining on the Rams’ parade when he made a strong case against Matt Stafford being a future Pro Football Hall of Famer. Stafford’s Super Bowl win inspired discussion about whether he deserved a gold jacket if he were to retire today.
“I’m gonna talk about it on the podcast but the HOF bar is incredibly low now. Like a participation trophy. No all decade team. No All pro. No MVP. 1 Pro bowl. Not even MVP of the SB. Never considered the best in any year he played. At least M. Ryan has an MVP,” Sherman tweeted on Monday.
It took 4,509 days from his NFL debut for Matthew Stafford to finally win a playoff game. Four weeks later, he had just as many Super Bowl wins as Aaron Rodgers.
Stafford posted an 86-95-1 record and making only three postseason appearances with the Detroit Lions while showing off his gaudy passing stats.
Stafford currently ranks 12th on the NFL’s career passing yards leaderboard.
