    Until he has been retired for five years. These are the rules.:p

    (Had a Seahawks thread and had to even things up).

    Also per the rules--he has to be voted in.

    Brady=Mark McGwire

    Sad thing is he probably deserves to be in right away. Greed and morals matter with HOF voters. Look at what some HOF members like Aikman are saying already.

    Wut?

    Brady been using steroids and I didn't know about it?

    I can't stand the dude but he's one of the best and certainly the most accomplished QB of the last 20 years. Gotta give credit where it's due.

    Did Aikman say he shouldn't be a first ballot hall of famer or not be in it at all? Link?

    Two of his SB wins shrouded by controversy. Shame because he is a great QB, but there will always be the stigma of spy/deflate gate.

    So what. He's first ballot. Greed and morals, there are many things HOF's have done that weren't caught. Don't talk about morals, and the verdict has not been handed, just your assumptions. Hater hate.

    Brady was going in the hall before this season even started. He didn't need this win to get in. Anyone who thinks otherwise is nuts.

    This game just put him over the top in the contest for greatest of all time. He was up there among the greatest before this season even started, and he has a couple more season in him, in all likelihood.

    theres no way he's not going to the hall of fame. And the controversies surrounding any of his accomplishments are things like a disputed call (against the Raiders in the Snowbowl), this deflate gate stuff (which is turning out to be nothing), and "spy gate" which turned out to be a common tactic for a number of teams - the patriots just got caught.

    None of those necessarily reflect on Brady's character or performance. They are more about chance (in the snow bowl, and perhaps deflate gate), and the organization. He still has to call the plays, and he still has to execute and his numbers are what they are. With Brady as the quarterback the Patriots went from a mediocre team to a team that is a contender every year, practically no matter who is on the team. The team that won that first Super Bowl was the same one that lost year after year with Bledsoe.

    As far as his reputation off the field, I've heard nothing other than he is a good guy and a hard worker who takes his job very seriously. I don't understand the hate at all. This guy is a actual role model.

    The "brady hate" doesn't come from his winning, it comes from Patriot fans that think he's a God. Look at this forum. Even when they win they're crybabies.

    He deserves hall of fame status due to pulling off Giselle.

    Aikman called Brady a liar, basically. Said there is absolutely no way he would not have noticed the inflation difference. And absolutely no way some equipment kid or any team official would have done the deflation deed without Brady being aware of it.

    I'm no Cowboy fan but have a great deal of respect for Aikman, and I know I am not alone.

    I don't hate Brady at all, and per the field results he absolutely deserves to be in on the first ballot. But again you have to be voted in. By voters who might forgive some personal faults but will have a harder time forgiving cheating.

    Heck they didn't vote Strahan in right away for his alleged pre-arranged record breaking sack on Favre! That pales in relation to the Pats cheating image.

    Tom Brady is a first ballot Hall of Famer. You all can yak and debate it all you want. But he gets in on his first try, guaranteed.

    I don't know. Maybe. But here's Troy picking up some product at the local hair salon in North Park. :D

    Well, I lost a great deal of respect for Aikman as a result of his comments.

    Aikman was teammates with a serial drug offender who had no problem making the HOF. Now someone tell me how deflated footballs caused New England to beat Indy 45-7. If it was a 3 point game, maybe we should discuss it but they won by 38 points. Did deflating the balls really hold Indy to 7 points?

    Me as well. Troy was a good quarterback but with that o line, Smith running and Irvin as his receiver an avg qb would have looked pretty damn impressive. Ive lost all respect t for him now. I bet he wishes he was half the qb Brady is, oh wait he was
