Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb believes that he should be in the Hall of Fame, despite never winning a Super Bowl.
McNabb, a six-time Pro Bowl quarterback, believes that he should be in the Hall of Fame after having a productive 13-year career.
I would vote for myself for the Hall of Fame, McNabb said in a sit-down with Fox Sports.
McNabb had a strong career with the Philadelphia Eagles after the organization took him No. 2 in the 1999 NFL Draft, but dropped off mightily the past two seasons with the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings. The Redskins acquired McNabb from its NFC East rival for a second-round draft pick, but McNabb never produced the way that coach Mike Shanahan hoped.
There were talks of being out of shape and not understanding the end of game strategy before he was eventually benched in favor of backup quarterback Rex Grossman. He had one of his worst statistical years with the Redskins since his rookie year before he was jettisoned off to the Vikings to replace Brett Favre.
It's those failures with his last two NFL spots and his lack of a Super Bowl ring that will likely keep him out of the Hall of Fame, despite ranking 17th in all-time passing yards -- ahead of Hall of Famers such as Jim Kelly, Steve Young, and Troy Aikman which McNabb quickly points out in the video. He also ranks 22nd in passing touchdowns and 23rd in completion percentage.
McNabb had a fine career, but few will remember him as the type of elite quarterback typically enshrined in Canton.
