what a story this guy was, from working at a grocery store, to superbowl MVP...
HOF??? I think it is close.
Hmmm well let me put this spin on it. He has the same amount of super bowl wins as someone named favre. The three top superbowl performances as far as numbers goes. Has been to one more super bowl appearances than Favre. Has taken two down trodden organizations to the biggest game possible. We all know how terrible the Rams were before him, and the Cardinals were a disgrace before he showed up. I say he is a shoe in. And I think he had two league MVP's. The only possible block is that he didn't play for a big time organization. I dunno, I still feel like there are biases based on the teams the players played for.
First ballot. Warner is a class act, unless he unretires...

I understand the accomplishments, but he just doesn't have that "sexy" of a name. To me at least. Does he deserve it? most likely. I remember this debate a few years ago and he was on the fence. Maybe the Super Bowl with the Cardinals is what puts him over the top.
It wasn't like it was just him with the Rams, so give that argument up. I think a lot of QB's could have come in and did what he did.
Maybe, but twice? He completely did a 180 to two different franchises a decade apart. You are right on not being very sexy of a name. The other downfall is the big laps between him being an MVP with the Rams, and him taking the Cardinals to the Super Bowl. Kind of a big gap there in his career. Dark years for him.
