CBS Sports analyst Phil Simms says that he believes current New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is already headed to the Hall of Fame.

“Here we were five years ago, before the Giants won their first Super Bowl, and all the talk that year was maybe the Giants need to bring another quarterback in and Tom Coughlin’s in trouble,” Simms told USA TODAY Sports.

“Now they both absolutely one day will go in the Hall of Fame.

“Eli has been a real clutch quarterback. When you talk about why, never underestimate who he plays for and how he’s been groomed.”

I agree that Manning has always been clutch, but I need to see him play the way he did last season, for at least another three to four years before I can say he deserves to be headed to the Hall of Fame.

The one thing that will certainly solidify Eli’s spot in Canton, is another Super Bowl ring, and that’s something that’s definitely possible.
